My sons were all in grade school when their mother and I divorced. They stayed with me on the weekends. Like too many dads, I fell into the trap of going out to eat for all our meals. It didn’t take long for me to see the problem with this. I was the weekend dad and we were losing the family feeling.
I wanted us to stay close. What better way than to make sure we have a family dinner. Although we might eat out often, at least once a weekend we sat down to a family style meal at home. I had to be sure my sons would enjoy the meals so I needed to improve my rudimentary cooking skills.
I found my mother’s old cookbook and many of her old recipes. Some I updated and some remain the same. I experimented with new foods and figured out a few short cuts. I made some mistakes but I also learned a few things.
This book is written with the single dad in mind but it applies to anyone new to the kitchen.
It is available now from Amazon.com in both paperback and as a Kindle e-book.
I hope you enjoy it.
