Alison J. Bermack

I’m like you. I am a crazed mom of three very active kids – one in elementary, one in middle school and one in high school -- who seem to be doing different activities and always at the same time. Life can get pretty busy as I shuttle them from point A to point B.

For some, a spouse or family member will be your best cooking friend. If you are cooking with relatives, try to recreate a recipe from your past, whether it is a great-grandmother’s famous dish or a food from your country of origin.
