Family Favorites

Kevin and I have met some fantastic families the past few years in our travels, in turn I have developed some great friendships with many of the wives. One thing I have found in common is our interest in cooking tasty meals for our family. With this in mind, I thought it would be neat to pass along and share openly all of the great family recipes were have all acquired.

I have learned through the years that good food and good cooking helps bring us together as a family. Each morning I cook a full-breakfast and we all gather to start our day. With a crazy sports and cheerleading schedule, dinner together can be a little more tricky. Preparing casseroles and dishes that can stay warm or easily heated is often my theme. Sundays are saved for a large meal that includes Kevin’s 95-year old Grandmother, Sister, brother-in-law, nephews and nieces.

Personally, I love to cook! From baking, desserts, to appetizer, to full blown meals… there is nothing I won’t attempt. Whatever your “Family Favorite” might be, I am excited to give it a try.

For ALL of those who share and participate, I will be saving and gathering each of the recipes. At the end of each year I will put them into a pdf. format and email the entire collection out. If there is anything you need in the meantime or a recipe you can’t find, feel free to email me directly at michelle@farmdirection.com

As always, Kevin and I thank you for your continued support.

From my family to yours… happy cooking!
