As the youngest of three children growing up, I spent a lot of time with my mom. Every errand, run to the grocery store, dinner party, or lunch-making in the morning before school – there I was at her hip. I admire my mother’s ability to whip up an amazing dinner from random items in the kitchen and so from a young age I watched her cook and learned. Now, as a 20-something adult not living at home, I have collected a few of her favorite recipes along with creating my own. Some of these are completely homemade while others require a little help from a box. Either way, my priorities in cooking are always delicious and (usually) healthy!
