This week I am actually doing most of my shopping at Tops Markets. I have stocked up on my meats at BJ’s and need to really use what’s in my pantry and just get produce and things to make snacks. The weather is getting cooler so I am excited to make pumpkin bread this week.

Breakfasts we stick to homemade pancakes, oatmeal, eggs.

Meal planning will also build a family bond. Your kids will see you in the kitchen and they may want to help. I encourage you to let them help you even if you are just starting out cooking and feel uncomfortable, let them hand you your utensils.


If you grew up with not much of a cooking background start small. Don’t whip out the recipes that call for 10+ ingredients and knife skills.

You do not want to get discouraged, you want to feed your family for less.

My favorite recipes I started cooking with was from the classic Betty Crocker Cookbook. I suggest this to anyone wanting to start cooking and has no idea where to begin. It gives you the basics on everything from the cuts of meat, to basic spices, and how to shape your own loaves of bread.

Once you get a feel for how food blends together you will gain confidence and feel proud.


If you are crunched on time you can still menu plan. There are hundreds of those freezer meal plans you can purchase or find your own on Pinterest that I know several of my friends love.

It is a personal preference if freezer cooking is for you. I really enjoy blending the ingredients together and if I am so crunched on time where I can’t prep a meal that’s when I turn to my emergency plan- frozen fish sticks or the crock pot.
