"Spaghetti bolognaise is always a family favourite Coming in a close second would be fried chicken (now made with rice crumbles as I need to eat gluten-free) with mashed potatoes and a green veggie."

French Silk Pie

Pie is very high on my list of Favorite Things. And French Silk Pie is the number one pie on that list.

I have just decided on our Valentine's Day menu for tomorrow, and I'm preparing to hit the grocery store before it is besieged with shoppers loading up on shrimp cocktails, lobster tails, and chocolate dipped strawberries. I always debate on whether I want to go to a restaurant for dinner or stay at home and cook for myself and family. Cooking at home usually wins out.

When you have 3 Kids, Valentine's Day turns into a group event. The… Continue
