Group active since Wed, Jun 01, 2011
This group is for any and everyone that enjoy cooking from the heart and soul. It is a place to be proud of cooking meals that satisfy the stomach, but also the soul. Share recipes that make you and others feel good as well as learn from others that will do the same! Don't be afraid to drive away from the drive thru's and pull up a chair to a home cooked meal :-) A lot of people believe that younger moms have stepped away from the stoves and stepped into more convenient forms of feeding a family, but I am here to say that there are still some of us out here willing and eager to learn and prepare loving dishes the good old fashioned way! Remember... good food is just a DASH OF LOVE away!

I actually started doing this when there were just 2 of us at my house and we were on different schedules. I put meals into individual serving sizes, so my son could warm up a meal before he went off to class. I could also take a portion to work for lunch. I've told others that you just build up a rotation in the freezer. Make a double batch and freeze half. In a few weeks you'll have a lot ready in the freezer if you don't have a weekend to spend cooking.
I also make cookie dough and freeze it in a zipper bag. Make sure to write the cooking time & temp. When you get ready to bake them, bu the tip off the end of the zip bag and squeeze out your cookies. Fresh baked cookies if you can't eat a whole batch at one time.
Another plus, in the hot summer, you only spend one day heating up the house cooking and baking.

Share Our Strength is a Non Profit organization that is dedicated to feeding hungry children all over the world. They work with many big name chefs to provide food for underprivileged children and It is endorsed by FoodNetwork who also sponsors Community Bakesales all over the country as fundraisers. (Sandra Lee from (Semi- Homemade) is one of their National spokespersons)
I Thought perhaps if we could generate enough interest, People might like to contribute some of their favorite rice dishes to make a cookbook and 100% of any sales would be donated to Share Our Strength.org.
The recipe's can be anything at all... dessert,breakfast, soups, main dishes, side dishes, risottos, cassaroles, drinks.... vegan, vegetarian, ethnic, with or without any kind of protein.... They can use Rice noodles, Rice flour, Rice wines and vinegars, As long as it's Tried and True, the submission is welcome and you will get credit for any an all recipes you may submit. ( you can even include a little blurb about your recipe if you like )
I Really hope you will join in with me to help get this project off the ground. It means a lot to me. Thankyou
