"If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house......the people who give you their food give you their heart." -Cesar Chavez

It's true, I love cooking for family and friends.  Everything about preparing, cooking and sharing food makes me happy.   Making something with my own hands feels creative and satisfying, and sharing it with others is a joy and a privilege.  The meals I make are one way that I show my love and appreciation for my friends and family.

I really love having people over for dinner on Friday night.....I think it is the most relaxed evening of the week.  But when you work all day, your menu has to be easy - Here is one of my favorites:
