Why did I start this???

Linda cartoon for FacebookWelcome to my new blog “What’s Linda Cooking”!  I am so happy that I finally took the plunge and started writing this blog. I have been thinking about it for a few years but didn’t think I had enough to share.  Anyone who knows me, will be laughing at that! From my cooking show, What’s Linda Cooking on ORCTV, book clubs, direct sales business, volunteer gigs…anyone who knows me, knows I have plenty to say and I am rarely at a loss for words.

I come from a family of 5 kids…all with a lot to say.  I have 2 kids…both with a lot to say.  We have always had lively conversation around the dinner table.  In fact, our dinners growing up were marathon events.  We would sit at the table for hours just discussing what happened during our day or any topic we wanted.  Everyone talked over everyone else because we wanted to be heard.  To this day, I still have trouble keeping my mouth shut while others talk.  I am working on sitting on my hands while others are speaking, so I don’t interrupt.  It’s very hard for me!

I envision this blog being mostly about food.  How I get dinner on the table quickly, deliciously and economically.  That’s what I do!  I want to help YOU cook more, laugh a lot and enjoy the process of cooking for yourself and your family…whether you have 15 minutes or 2 hours to cook.

I will give you shopping, prepping, cooking and general tips to get the shop done fast and in a thrifty way…whether you have $200, $100, $60 or even $40 to spend on groceries.  It can be done and it can be done fabulously!

A little final information about me.  I have a family, a Direct Sales business, and volunteer duties that all keep me very busy.  I also have some time consuming hobbies.

I hope you come along with me on this blogging adventure.  Please drop a comment about you!  I would love to hear from you.
