Guys Need Mom’s Recipes Too!

By | 12/28/2012

When you send your kids off to live on their own, you can only hope you’ve taught them everything they need to know.  My son is living in a campus town house this year and he has a kitchen to cook in for the first time.  As it turns out, he likes to cook for himself.  Albeit, he’s making a lot of prepared chicken patties, scrambled eggs and pasta.  It’s a start!

Like father like son.  When I first met my husband, he was surviving on pizza, pasta and anything breaded or fried that could be thrown on a cookie sheet and baked in the oven.  Seriously.  These two men need me.  I should say needed.  My husband is a fabulous cook now and my son will learn.  To help him along, I made him a set of recipe cards with his favorite recipes!

Mom to the rescue!  He does still need me…for a bit!  I made an effort to make it masculine, although I did color in the heart.  What mom could resist?

I used a set of recipe cards from a clearance bin of course.  Always the bargain hunter!  Hey, you know they will be covered in spaghetti sauce soon enough!
