The Start of Something New....

Welcome to my blog!   Here at  A Welcome Kitchen  I will be sharing the many recipes, kitchen tips, meal plans and freezer cooking adventures that have been simmering for quite some time.  I am so excited to share what I have learned with all of you.

A little about me:  I have been married to my patient and amazing husband for 12 years.  We have one son who just recently turned 8.  We also have 3 cats, we are a cat-loving family for sure.  I was born and raised in Southern California, but relocated to the Midwest.  I am an accountant by trade, but turned in my calculator for an apron when we had our son, becoming a Stay-at-Home Mom.

When I was in high school, I took one year of Home Ec.  I enjoyed the class, mainly when we would be learning a new recipe and cooking from scratch.  I can remember a couple of recipes that my friends and I would get together and make on our own after class. I should have known that recipe creation was my calling way back then!  I just truly enjoy creating yummy new things for my family to try.  The days that I get to just putter around in my kitchen working on food prep and cooking are some of my happiest and most fulfilling.

Being a Stay-at-Home Mom / Homemaker has required me to find ways of making easy, tasty, and frugal meals.  Because there is always a list of other things that need done, all before school pickup time arrives.  These time saving tips are just some of the things I will be sharing here to help other Mom's maximize their time in the kitchen too.

I hope you enjoy visiting and come back often.  I appreciate readers and love hearing from each and every one of you.  So, don't be shy, leave me a comment and let's start engaging in some helpful conversations.
