Throughout the week, we love to cook up something delicious in the kitchen. But whether it’s lunch or dinner, there always seems to be leftovers. Part of the reason could be that I make enough on purpose so that I have leftovers. And what do I do with these leftovers? Well, make another meal, of course.
It’s amazing how easily leftover pasta, vegetables or chicken can quickly become a whole new recipe with just a little thought. Who knows, maybe you will even find a new family favorite! Not only are these delicious, but they cut down on waste.

I am a home cook that does things my way. In my kitchen, I make breakfast, pack lunches, prepare snacks, and cook dinner. During the week, we eat real food that is homemade, organic, and local. On the weekends we do explore more of our local restaurants. I bake my own bread, juice fresh oranges every other day, and make my own kombucha and other weekly favorites.
