I am just like so many busy moms out there. I want to create great meals for me and my family where the food brings us together at the end of a long and hectic day. I want to empower moms to feel like they are able to make Great Everyday Meals by using simple, accessible, and inexpensive ingredients and basic cooking techniques. It’s more about family and less about slaving away in the kitchen cooking. I have been a restaurant industry professional for about 10 years and have a great passion for cooking. I will share tips, recipes and techniques that I have learned to arm everyday cooks with the foundation to simple yet great tasting cooking! Johanna M. Cook

Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken w/ Herb Roasted Purple Potatoes


Dinner time for the modern family, and especially the modern mom, has become a chore that so many do not look forward to because of the anxiety it brings on to the cook of the household. The question, "What's for dinner?" has become a question many moms are fearful to answer because they too are asking themselves the same question, with no luck of finding the answer.

Our society which has become accustomed to instant gratification and instant results, and has unfortunately viewed food in the same manner. Hence the explosion of the fast food industry, premade frozen and boxed (unhealthy) foods and the decline in home cooked meals. Many moms today have a very difficult time creating great homemade meals because they feel it takes too much time. Unfortunately, our youth is at the receiving end of this drama, and many moms and dads alike, want to finally end this vicious trend.
