Kindy's Musings....

The more time I spend on internet research the more I realize how many thousands of recipes are available. But don't be fooled by some of the HUGE, free recipe sites online.

A large percentage of those recipes won't be healthy, many won't be quick-to-prepare, and you'll have to WADE THROUGH alot of duds to find recipes that you would want to serve to your family.

I recently found a cookbook that is great for busy parents who want to save some time each day and still eat a healthy meal!
