The Prom-Mom's Perspectives and Ramblings...

Let's Eat!

YES...those three little letters that mean sooooo much to us three times (or more!) a day!!! E-A-T!

My 'little chef,' helping mama out.
Those of you who know me personally know that I absolutely LOVE to cook & bake...I love to try new things, make traditional things and hear about/talk about cooking and favorite recipes of all cultures & households!

This small compilation of recipes are what I consider Ziebart-household 'staples'...though I have plans and hopes to expand this page-concept in time.

Whether you're popping in out of pure-curosity, or on a mission to figure out tonight's dinner, get to cookin' so you can get to the good part...
EATING!
