I guess the main thing to understand is that I hate cooking. Hate is a strong word, and I really mean it. I find cooking to be inconvenient, stressful, unpleasant, and often frustrating. However, my family persists in their reliance on food other than cereal. My husband doesn’t mind cooking, but his repertoire is limited (to his credit, he is trying to learn) and his commute from work is literally 5-8 times as long as mine (think, LA traffic). My son is under the age of 5, and I hear that that’s considered a valid reason for not providing oneself with food. So right now, I cook. Reluctantly.

This blog is my attempt to make the process a little more bearable, as well as to find some recipes that don’t completely bury me. Easy. Quick. Affordable. Tasty. How hard can it be?
