Like many, I am a super busy person: I work full-time, I’m a freelance writer, I run a nonprofit, I volunteer, I am producing a documentary with friends, just starting my own consulting firm and I am married. Ask me how much time there is in the day to cook quality meals? I’ll tell you that I am probably in a time deficit. So I maximize my time.
At the same time, I am not crunchy granola but I do like to buy local organic ingredients when & where I can. Finding a good recipe that’s quick and easy to put them to good use before they spoil is imperative. I don’t like to waste money and I don’t like to eat bad food.
It can be more expensive to buy local or to buy organic or to buy healthy -which is a shame. But I have found some great deals at the farmer’s markets (like poblanos for $0.50 each) and the grocery store and have made recipes that are what my husband calls, “restaurant quality.” You can decide for yourself.

p.s. I’m no Rachel Ray or Paula Dean or Betty Crocker. I’m just a working educated wife who is trying to take shortcuts in the kitchen so that I have time to dedicate to changing the world into a better place during the day.
