Inside is a collection of my moms recipes that I had remembered smothering my face with at the dinner table for the first 19 years of my life. My best memories are coming home from school, walking in the door and simply greeting my mother with an nice “hello” followed quickly by, “So what’s for dinner?” Dinner was always eaten together as a family, around 6-6:30 each night waiting for my father to get home from work. Traditional homemade dishes with a kick of love from mom always made waiting for the big man to get home hard, but the wait was always worth it. Nothing beats a hot home cooked meal made with love. Every recipe is filled with the best ingredients, and perfect for family time meals. Add a touch of your own love to make any of these a your own special family meals. So indulge in the next few pages of deliciousness and get cooking!
