Once Upon A Time.....

I used:
 to cook 
make up new recipes
devour cookbooks like they were candy
blog stalk cooking blogs (I still obsessively read the Pioneer Woman's blog, who wouldn't?)
bake scrumptious breads, brownies, cakes, and pies.
I used to ENJOY COOKING!

No I am pretty much lame in the cooking department.
I have been in a rut.
I have stopped enjoying the first thing I was really ever passionate about. 

Here's why:

I have three small children.
I have three small children.
I have three small children.

Did you get that?

Turns out it's hard to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when you have three kiddos running around!  
Not to mention my Charlie is an extremely picky eater.  I mean I can't believe he survives on the limited food that he eats. 
So I make really quick and easy dishes.  I try to make things I know we will enjoy (well except for Charlie of course).  

I realize that this is just a stage I am going through.  But I also fear that life will just get busier as my children grow up.  Juggling three kids' schedules and trying to make a decent meal will be even harder than it is today!   

I am going to try to find that passion in cooking again.   
Once a week I am going to cook something I WANT to cook, try out a new recipe, or add a new twist to an old favorite.  I really enjoyed sharing my recipes when I was regularly blogging. 
I want to integrate cooking/baking back into my blog.
Because let's face it, I don't care who you are, we LOVE food. 

So I hope you come back to see what delicious bites I'll be cooking up!

Well I for one will be looking out for the things you come up with. I have 4 chilren ranging from 12 to 2 and a huge dog that needs to be walked ( a lot ) so I have major limited time in the kitchen. I am desperate for gorgeous meals that are children friendly ( inexpensive ! ) and easy to make.... :) I feel like I am running errands with the children all day long, so I am eager to read your future blog posts. :)
