For everyone who doesn’t know me My name is Laurie I have been married for 3 years to my husband Paul and have a 2-year-old son named Brennan. I didn’t always have the love affair I do now with cooking. When I first got married my husband and I worked opposing shifts at work and cooked our own meals which basically consisted of anything that was frozen. It wasn’t until I had my son and decided to stay home that I realized how important it was for him to cook fresher food. And more importantly I wanted to start saving money. So with those things in mind I started cooking up a storm. A lt of things when I started were hit or miss. But now I enjoy cooking like I never thought I would.I posted my recipes before and thought why not go into more detail about how I save money. Things I keep stocked in my pantry.And how I plan out my weekly menus. So in this new blog I’m starting I’ll be discussing those things along with including weekly menus and grocery lists that go with it. It’s a work in progress but hopefully I’ll be able to help you all develop the love of cooking I have.
