Easy Recipes for Busy Moms


I’m Maria, mother of two beautiful kids and wife of a very supportive husband.  I have a very busy schedule from day until night that I am always on the lookout for a recipe that is quick to prepare and easy to cook. Cooking is my passion; I love to cook for my family.  I like to prepare them delicious and nutritious food like every mom out there. 


I grew up in a small town in the Philippines where cooking is a family tradition that is passed from generations to generations, usually from mother to daughter; recipes which is perfected by time and trial.  Where some recipes are guarded a secret and others are spread out and given away. 


In this kind of culture and tradition, family values will flourish as well and fortified by closeness and bond within the family members.  With this bond, it would protect and inculcate the moral and ethical values within an individual. One important way of passing this family values is when everyone sits together and enjoys a meal.  Expectations; what is proper and what is considered deviant behaviors are usually discussed during this small gathering.  In turn, it reinforces and assures the strict obedience and compliance of every member. 


The role of a good recipe and cooking tradition should not be underplayed.  It is the reason why recipes are passed on from generations and perfected.  Because a delicious meal will make anyone come back for more.  It is a vital part of a family tradition, grandmothers and mothers collaborate to pass their legacy to their daughters.  Wives try their best to be at far if not better than their mother-in-laws.  As the saying goes, “A way through a man’s heart is through his stomach”.  I am proud to be a part of such big extended family that eat a hearty meal and at the same time have an immense closeness and bond with each other. 


Following this kind of family tradition is a good thing.  The challenge is how to keep the tradition in this fast paced busy world when every minute counts and every one has something to accomplish.  Busy wives and mothers who need to keep up with the rapid paced of this world and cooking tradition needs an easy recipe that is quick to prepare and everyone can enjoy.  I think at some point in our busy day we should slow our clock down and enjoy a hearty meal with our family.  After all is said and done your family is the most important thing in your life.
