Hi, my name is Rena and I'm a working mother of two little girls (one under 2 and a newborn). I realize the struggle that is involved in finding the time to prepare healthy meals for my family. I also realize how important it is to provide nutritious meals that will teach good eating habits and keep my family healthy. It's my goal to help make it easier for other families to find recipes that can simplify their meal planning and save time. I hope you enjoy my recipes and cooking advice!
