I absolutely love to cook. It’s true. What’s funny about that is that I also absolutely hate to cook.
I know. Now you are totally confused, right? This love-hate relationship does seem a bit odd, but I think the fallacy is in the perspective that cooking is a “hobby.” In order for something to be a hobby it usually has a few givens: we don’t get to do it often, we aren’t forced to do it, and it never gets old. Preparing meals for your family simply can not meet these rules, no matter how much you love it. I think most moms would agree. Cooking is a chore. I HAVE to do it or my family doesn’t eat. If I don’t feel like it, I don’t really have the option of just doing it another time.
Oh yeah, time. That’s another problem. We are all short on time. Being a mom takes time. Working outside the home or in, time is scarce. To be honest, somedays I can’t see how I will possibly accomplish even the most basic things on my list. Add in the coupon cutting, savvy shopping, and attempts to make it healthy, and meal preparation can become overwhelming for any mom. No wonder we are so tempted to live in the drive-thru lane.
Before we all give up hope and resolve to live a life of burgers and french fries, let me tell you about Simplified Dinners. Author, Mystie Winckler struggled with the dilemma of creating meals for her family just like you and I. Through this struggle, the idea for Simplified Dinners was born. You are probably thinking exactly what I did when I first heard about it: I’ve already got a shelf full of great cookbooks that never get opened. This ebook is different. It’s not just pages full of recipes, it’s a formula for helping even the mom who hates to cook get dinner on the table every night.
