I love preparing food and eating at home. It’s such a nice atmosphere – no banging of dishes, loud voices from people you have never meet, you know who ate from the dishes before you;-) AND you know exactly what is in your food!


I do get a lot of inspiration from my vintage cookbooks – I love looking at the old photos!

There are days though that I just do not have time or desire to cook, so I prepare larger amounts than I need at one meal and refrigerate or freeze enough for another meal. Dan ate these for about three days. I do this with a lot of foods especially – soup / stews, vegetables, casseroles. I keep salads made a head. Then you always have something ready – on hand – then you are not tempted to grab fast foods. Why would you want fast foods when you can have delicious homemade  that is so much tastier and better for you!!

From my kitchen to yours –  I hope you have a wonderful, creative day!
