Your advice to other “Foodie” moms on how to still cook for a family without loosing the quality or taste: DON’T GIVE UP GOOD FOOD JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE KIDS. Use naptime or, more broadly, downtime to cook and prepare your favorite foods. You will enjoy it more and your family will be happier for it.
