< img src =" https://3fm1bd1tbjvmfqt9x2kb6lv2-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Recipes.png" alt=""> I had my big”aha” cooking moment in 2003 when I was enjoying Sandra Lee’s semi-homemade series on Food Network. Okay, well, the real “aha” moment didn’t come until several years later on given that I was only 19, undergrad, and consuming Ramen. The entire idea of the show was integrating fresh ingredients with store-bought products. THIS IS GENIUS! Specifically if you are juggling a full schedule (or don’t actually like to cook), but wish to consume healthily.

Quick forward 18 years and I am still leaning into the semi-homemade strategy. Thanks, Sandra!
