Tiger Sand

I am a mother to two beautiful girls, Paxton (8) and Addison (4). I have been married 9 years to my loving husband, Tristan. My husband was an active Marine, until 2001. I was a working mother until we had our youngest in 2003. i stayed home until 2006. I am now working full-time so my husband can finish school. I never really had to work within a budget before, and now i do. i also have to think of meals that are easy and not so time consuming. I actually have been doing most of my cooking on the weekends, and add a side here and there through out the week. my girls love to help me, and i encourage them to do so.

Creamy Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

This salad with broccoli and cauliflower salad with bacon, and cheese is a wonderful side dish to any meal.

Okra Fritters

Rating: 4 stars 9
In the south Okra is every where. I threw together this recipe, when trying to come up with something different. When I make this for the kids I set aside Okra without the tomatoes and onion.

Hopper's Goulash

This is a quick supper that requires very little! Great for working Mom's. I use the Shells and cheese because my 4 year old thinks everything taste better with shells!

Hot Dog Casserole

This is a very kid friendly dish, creamy and very cheesy. I serve this with a salad, and or buttered bread. I sometimes use a can of mixed veggies, or frozen veggies, in place of the peas.
