Welcome to My Blogger Page

As a busy mom with three children, I thought I'd create a blog to share many recipes in my collection with everyone. My main goal is to help everyone, specially busy moms and dads, save a lot of time in the kitchen. I'm also hoping that you will find interesting recipes that you would like to try. Most recipes in my collection are very quick and easy to follow. I will try my best to include images as well.

Having a very busy schedule and specially with having children can be difficult at times. The last thing you want is having to spend hours everyday in the kitchen trying to prepare and cook for yourself and your family. I have managed to cut down a lot of time in the kitchen and still be able to prepare and cook yummy, delicious meals and snacks my children and I love. Family and friends have enjoyed these recipes over the years as well and are often requested during gatherings and/or special occassions.

From time to time, I will also add some of my own "tips and tricks" in the kitchen to share with everyone. I hope you will enjoy visiting my blog page.

Please feel free to leave me comments, feedbacks on my recipes, and/or questions. I'm more than happy to hear from you and I will try my best to reply as soon as I can.
