Cooking and eating at home with friends and family is a great way to bring a bit more soul to your house. On my blog I will share tips on food shopping; creating quick everyday meals; entertaining small or large groups of friends and family; and old standbys i.e. cookbooks, recipes, staple ingredients, etc.

Eating in a healthy, delicious way seems to be a trial for many of my friends and colleagues. For years now my coworkers and friends have expressed surprise that I always have leftovers for lunch and how easily I throw together a dinner party. I feel lucky that I was raised in a family that cooked everyday and loved throwing parties with lots of food because this seems to be normal for me.

I have several friends ask me to provide them with hints on grocery shopping and throwing together a quick meal. I don't typically use recipes unless it is a type of food I have never done before but I think cooking is more of an experience than a regimented series of steps. With everything, you should practice the steps at first but with experience you will know when you can take shortcuts or modify ingredients.

I hope that my experiences can help you in your kitchen. Cooking from home can be a healthy, economical choice but it will also add a bit of soul to your home.
