Been home a lot these days and cooking much more than ever.
And to tell you the truth - I love it. I have always been a pretty
great cook. What's more, I simply love food.
As it turns out I have had my mother visiting for a month now with
the added bonus for me - yes, you guessed it - food galore! All my
favorite meals simple and not so simple. Of course, I thought, what
a great item for my blog. Everyone should
be able to have a delicious meal at home and better - "homemade." So
I asked her if she would consider parting with a simple recipe for peppers
and eggs. And of course, the answer was an emphatic "NO!" It is
a tradition in my Sicilian family that one must "die with the
So humor and chagrin aside, I did a simple search and found an
article by Author Sid Stevens, with a great book
suggestion until I can manage to part with one of my own.
Cheap Homemade Meals
Everyone loves to go out an eat at fast food restaurants and
dine in restaurants,but with the cost of gas being so high plus
with just the cost of one meal for a single person being 5
dollars or more, eating out 3 or more times a week can be
I have been trying to come up with some cheap homemade meals
that taste great and don't take hours to make, and I have been doing
some internet searching and I found a product called,
America's Secret Recipes. It has recipes from a lot of big
name restaurants that have been put together into a cook book.
I loved eating homemade meals at family gatherings while
growing up, or waking up to a great breakfast that my mom has
made. Now that I am older and living on my own getting to eat
great tasting homemade meals doesn't happen as often. I think
thanksgiving and Christmas were probably the only two times that
I didn't have to cook at home this past year.
I think I have been doing more reading out of cook books than
anything else since I have gotten older, trying to learn different
homemade meals to make throughout the weeks. After finding America's
Secret Recipes I think a lot more of our going out to eat will be
family nights at home. With all these homemade meals that are
provided for you every day will be like getting to eat out.
Most of my favorite restaurants are included in these homemade
meals that you can make. My favorite part about it is that I
do not have to make a long drive to the restaurant, stand in
line,or wait for a table. I can do it all from my very own
home. Also having to take kids with you to a restaurant to
me is not very fun. We have a 5 year old and he doesn't want
to stay still. He says he is bored, when the food finally
comes he says he isn't hungry. It ends up feeling more like work then
just trying to have a nice time out.
So if anybody else needs some great homemade meals to make.
Then I strongly recommend America's Secret Recipes.
It may have your family just end up saying WOW!!!
