Eating is always good.

Cooking from scratch is one of the best ways of serving your loved ones. We all love eating good wholesome home cooked meals but sometimes when life gets a bit too busy, we tend to buy fast food, restaurant meals or from the frozen section of the store.  I hate to buy from fast foods or local restaurants, for sometimes it’s not so healthy for you, or a bit too expensive. It was hard to make a home cooked meal, when I was working full time, and taking care of the house, the garden, kids and a husband, with church duties, and a newborn baby.  I always made something easy, quick and simple. Like fried potatoes with salad, some easy soup- borsht is very easy...:), as well as chicken soup, or baked chicken with mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese is a famous staple in our kitchen, as well as spaghetti.

My husband loves soups, so we always have a pot of soup simmering on the stove, especially when it’s still a bit chilly outside.

Lately I found some great food blogs/websites, and not working as of yet, due to the fact that I have given birth recently to a new baby, I tried some new recipes, and loved the results.

I made a chicken/mushroom dish over rice from Natasha's website.

I made a yummy salad with cauliflower. This and the below dessert was from Olga's beautiful blog.

And just today we made a cream cheese bar, with my little girls, it turned out really good, if not counting the fact that my oldest child turned off the oven in the middle of baking the cream cheese bars… well the joy of little ones!
Here is the shelf my husband made for me, for all the cookbooks I have, above my sink.

I love looking through cookbooks, food websites and get new ideas on how to serve a yummy home cooked meal to my family, it is truly a blessing.
