Thank you for taking the time to read my first article. Whether you are married or single; kids or no kids, I think we can all agree we like to eat.
I do realize that for some cooking and/or baking is not their forte, but for others like myself I love cooking and baking. Growing up I was fortunate to have a mom who cooked the best meals and baked the most scrumptious desserts. I have carried this love of cooking and baking in my everyday life one that my husband and children enjoy.
I was not always the best cook or baker, but with some patience and time you can master anything. I also was a single mother for about 18 years and in those years I learned the value of learning to cook on a budget. I am hoping that some tips and advice along with some easy to follow recipes can inspire or re-inspire any cooks and bakers.
*One of the things I do weekly is scan all of the ads – ALL grocery ads. Yes it takes time; yes it is tedious, but if you carve out some time and compare prices you can save a little bit of money on everyday items.
