Welcome, Jody! I'm sure your life is a busy one. I think you'll find a lot of information here to connect your love of fresh ingredients to your busy life. Many here espouse the "simple is best" philosophy; I'm sure you've developed something similar. As a retired teacher, I know your school year is more than busy- it's rushed. I hope we're your first stop when you're looking for ideas for meal planning, variety and just plain interesting conversation.
What are your family's favorite dishes or ingredients? Do you have "go to" dishes you prepare when you come upon your favorite fruits and veggies? I hope we'll learn from you, and know you'll learn from the community here.
