(Quick Disclaimer: I like to keep recipes real simple. If it takes more than 30 minutes to prep, chances are you won’t find me cooking it. I’m a busy Mom and spending my time cooking isn’t #1 on my to do list. I do like eating though. So you can count on some tasty family friendly dishes made from Real food ingredients.
We don’t eat Vegan, Paleo, Vegetarian, Low Carb or Sugar Free. Hey, some days our meals will totally fit into any one or three of these groups, but not intentionally. Our family eats REAL FOOD made from quality, traditional ingredients. What this means is that we get to enjoy a wide range of delicious recipes without counting calories, feeling like we’re missing out or wondering what’s in our food).
