Cooking for family makes more than food

This site is geared toward providing easy recipes, tips and tricks for parents who are on their own.

Welcome to

Hi! My name is Rob Houghton.  I'm a newly seperated father of three and enjoy making quick, healthy meals for my kids.

Upon getting separated, I fortunately had been the main meal maker for the family, so I wasn't particularly shocked or unable to make good food for my kids.  That being said, along with all of the other adjustments that came along, I started to think about the difficulties parents who didn't know how to cook were facing.  Meals that I may regard as easy, 15-minute throw-together dishes probably seem like insurmountable tasks for someone who had never boiled water or cut an onion.

So, here I am, comfortable with the ways of the kitchen - embarking on the unfamiliar arena of blog posting and video production, hopefully providing you folks with information that's useful and entertaining.

So, without any further blather, LET'S DO SOME COOKING!
