It’s a Blog Party… and We’re Glad You Stopped By!



Ultimate Blog Party 2010
5 Minutes for Moms is having their annual Ultimate Blog Party…. and we’re glad you stopped by to visit our kitchen to see what’s here. Whether you’re one of my regulars… or just landed here looking for something… or you’re part of the 5 minutes for Moms party…. you’re always welcome in my kitchen.

For those of you that don’t know me… let me introduce myself… I’m Linda… I love to cook and love to share recipes and tips … my cooking lessons started out in my Mom’s and Grandmothers’ kitchens and continued through the years as I cooked for my own family… I can remember being a little girl sitting on a stool watching intently as they cooked… and being thrilled when I was finally allowed to help… and so began my love of cooking and good food.

This blog is all about food…. food... and more food…. something for everyone… easy to prepare… healthy makeovers of old favorite recipes… budget conscious tips…foods for picky eaters… kid friendly foods…classic recipes…timesavers for busy lives… special dinners and desserts for those special occasions… party ideas… helpful information… and much more…

Most of all enjoy!

US11 – A $100 gift eCertificate to Restaurant.com, immediately redeemable online at over 13,000 restaurants nationwide. Provided by: Amy LeForge of Earnest Parenting

US39 -Be My Guest certificate ($250 value) for one lucky winner, (2 night stay for a family of four) at any Hilton Garden Inn. Provided by: Hilton Garden Inn

Linda, so nice to meet you here at the UBP =) I stopped by because cooking is something I personally struggle with. I and my hubby LOVE to eat good food (he is more the chef than I) I am just not that into cooking but I want to be. I am now following and will look forward to your tips and cooking delights =) Stop by to enter my giveaway!
