My daughter loves cooking and cooking together with her has become something that we do every weekend and thanks to her we have all come to appreciate, more than ever, homemade meals. Cooking from scratch doesn’t have to be something hard, it can instead be a fun activity to do with your family. This year we are recommitting to homemade meals; from breakfast and lunch to weekday dinners. And because we are always busy and there is always limited time for cooking we are focusing on easy recipes that can be done quickly but without compromising the quality and flavor that only comes with home cooked meals.
