I love to eat. I love to cook. And I REALLY love to find simple, yummy, healthy (bonus!) recipes. Hitting the jackpot for me? Finding something I can do quickly the night before or while I’m shuttling kids out the door (hello Crock Pot!) that is quick to reheat, and will be something all 5 of us will enjoy…together! That’s the jackpot, because with a very busy family of 5, it doesn’t happen every day! One of my very first jobs was at Family Circle magazine in ad sales, and I flew all over the midwest telling companies that “the kitchen is the heart of the home.” And I still believe that today! People love to hang out in the kitchen, and cooking together is a fun activity. I’ve published recipes here at The Lounge before, but I’m always trying to fit it into my “parenting tips and tools” theme. I want to dedicate this page to easy, family-friendly recipes. Have one you want to publish or share? Email me! Whether it’s super easy or just one of those family-friendly crowd pleasers, we want to hear about it.
P.S. Fun fact…many times, people mistake my site name for “Martini Lounge,” and I’m sure the martini glass isn’t helping much! It’s the MOMTini Lounge, and will always be a resource for quick, easy, shortcuts to Mom Life!
