I know Sandy Lee often gets knocked for her semi-homemade approach, but I am all about taking pantry items and making them into something extraordinary with the help of my overflowing spice cabinet. Scratch cooking reigns, but semi-homemade cooking has it's place....at least in my busy world!

You bet Lisa, and well said. Anything made in your own kitchen has to be better than fast food, and more economical to boot. I prefer and enjoy cooking from scratch as much as possible, but I have time on my side. Still, there are times I make no excuses for putting a delicious meal on the table with big time shortcuts!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

That blue box mac and cheese is probably my favorite food ever

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
