    Heya are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, plus other health issues, so EVERY night is a manic night for us. Some days even when there is only two of us around, it’s hard to get up the strength to make a decent meal. Learning how to make meals ahead on those good days sound perfect for me!

    Being a single working mom with 2 kids who are in activities every night of the week (gymnastics, softball, piano lessons, etc), I have a LOT of quick go-to recipes. The first one that popped into my head are: Cuban Black Beans and Rice. It’s a dish I used to eat in the cafeteria at a place I worked in south Florida many years ago. Seriously – 2 cans black beans cooked with some chopped onion, a dash of parsley, a dash of garlic powder, a bit of water, and a tsp of chicken bouillon served with a bag of Vigo’s Yellow Rice and top with a dollop of sour cream – it couldn’t be easier. I know it is the EZ version and probably could be better with more time and ingredients, but its pretty darned good as is and my kids love it!

    Our go-to meal is either beef enchiladas or breakfast burritos, because they are family favorites and my husband is so excited to eat them that he volunteers to help ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Deanna

    We love tacos for an easy weeknight meal! Always have the ingredients on hand. Just found your blog and I LOVE it! Can’t wait to make the Chicken Tostados Upside Down Bake…sounds delicious!

  6. Natalie (The Sweets Life)

    I have to admit, pancakes are our quick, go-to meal…but they’re a delicious one ๐Ÿ™‚

    would LOVE this cookbook!

  7. Vanessa

    My usual go to dinners are usually spaghetti with meatballs from the freezer, taco salad using canned chili, sloppy joes, stir fry on top of top ramen noodles, or whatever else i have on hand!
