First Blog

I am pretty excited to start my food blog. I think mostly because I get to use all the new kitchen gadgets we received as wedding presents. I like to follow recipes, but sometime I just wing it, especially when I have not planned properly for the week.
Dinner has always been important to me. When I was younger, my dad worked night shifts & my mom worked a normal job. My brothers & I were each given a night to make dinner to help my mom out around the house. This started when I was about 8 (brothers were 10 & 12). My middle brother would make spaghetti every single week. My oldest brother would make some Hamburger Helper or something of that nature. And I would whip out marinated chicken with pasta or rice & veggies. But we (mom, brothers & I) would always eat together, share stories about school or sports and on some nights play spades or hearts.
I hope to continue that togetherness when I have a family. Even if its a quick 10 min sit down meal, its time spent together.
