Are your days crazy busy from morning to night?

Do you work full time and  still have a million things to get done so your family has everything they need?

At the end of the day do you end up eating out because you didn’t plan anything to make for dinner?

You keep thinking there has to be a better way. 

I’ve been there.

I believe no matter how busy you are you can still make delicious comforting meals that your family will rave about!

A simple, but impressive recipe that mimic's Ruth's Cris famous Spicy BBQ Shrimp Appetizer. It's full of the flavors of garlic, spices and butter drizzled over the top of succulent shrimp. Recipe found at www/

 A little bit about me……..

Between dealing with all of the things my family needed and work responsibilities we were going out to eat every single day.  I was sick of eating out but I didn’t know how to make food my family would eat and still get my to do list done. I started reading old family recipes and trying them out.  I’d spend nights and weekends cooking; learning how to make comfort foods that my family craved that still tasted great but didn’t take hours to make.  I kept at it until one day while we were eating my husband commented “this meal is better than what we used to get at Lawry’s.”

Now I make meals at home that my family actually asks me to make instead of going out.
