If it’s not easy to make then it’s probably not going to be cooked in our house. Even though I am a stay at home mom I could spend hours in the kitchen prepping and cooking a dinner that would knock your socks off, but my family probably wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole. Sure we know how to dine out in public without people staring at us too bad, but at home, there are some serious down home meals that are eaten!

One of my families favorite recipes is stuffed peppers, even though no one likes the peppers except for me. So instead of wasting money or time on peppers, I usually just make the stuffing and add some veggies on the side to keep our food pyramid in check!
