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.
