On food for thought friday we usually share one of our favorite tried-and-true recipes, but today I’ve got something even yummier for you. The fabulous mother-daughter team behind Ragazza Bella Couture has launched Gourmet Momma, a blog who’s tagline is “where dinner doesn’t have to be a chore!” Really? It doesn’t? Because sometimes preparing dinner for a family of five (my youngest is still on rice cereal so she doesn’t count…yet) feels like more of a chore than scrubbing toilets or successfully getting three loads of laundry washed, dried and folded in one day. Any site that makes meal preparation easy and tasty is a site I’m going to shout from the rooftop–even if it’s covered in 18 inches of snow!
From chef’s tips (dark brown vs. light brown sugar) to light and healthy meals to three-ingredient desserts (chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate, right?) Gourmet Momma is already on its way to saving the sanity of harried moms everywhere. Even their Gourmet Momma’s Meatloaf, which uses ground turkey, sounds like something I need to try. That’s saying a lot considering my grandma once made a “turkey loaf” that turned me off ground turkey for years. Gourmet Momma’s recipe not only sounds edible but light and healthy as well.
If you’re looking for something to spice up your weekly routine of pancakes, mac and cheese, and frozen burritos then add Gourmet Momma to your recipe box. As moms we’ve got enough chores to do…dinner shouldn’t be one of them! –Emily
