My mom was an avid cook and made the most delicious Chinese dishes every night. I miss her food often but food has always been a passion of mine. I love all types of food from different backgrounds and eating is a big hobby of mine. One thing that really came out of Covid for me, was learning how to cook my boys’ favorite foods! As we were all stuck at home and I realized I wanted to make yummy meals for them as my mom did. Cooking use to be a fear of mine, I thought I was bad at it, but like anything else, it just takes practice and I’m proud to say they love my cooking now! The other plus is that my sons love helping me in the kitchen. Especially, my youngest, he loves to mix, bake, and be involved with me in the kitchen, so cooking is a fun activity to do together.
Having great cookware is an essential part of cooking. And I love my Staub Cast Iron 10-inch Frying Pan and 3 Piece Ovenware Set, both in my favorite red color. My boys love food as much as I do and we cooked three of our favorite dishes together! The recipes are also included and all three are very easy to do! I love to do easy and delicious recipes and these are three dishes that rotate through our menu weekly!
Garlic Butter Shrimp, Baked Rotini with Meat Sauce, and Fresh Strawberry Pie. The recipe cards are found below and you can pin them on your Pinterest board! So delicious and can you believe I did all three in an hour? So If I can do it you can too!
Are you thinking of Mother’s Day yet? This is a perfect gift for moms who love to cook and even your sister/friend who is a lover of cooking or doesn’t have a quality set of pans, Staub has it all. Quality cookware, knives, and more for a great price. The 3-Piece Ovenware in white or red (the ones I have) are under $100! I used two out of three for my dishes and cook with them often for my boys. See below for my cooking process with the boys as well as my gift guide.
The easiest dinner to make is the Garlic Butter Shrimp using the Staub Cast Iron 10-inch Frying Pan; you can put it on top of rice or fresh pasta and it’s the most delicious dinner!
The Baked Rotini with Meat Sauce is a fantastic meal for dinner and leftovers! It makes enough for the next day and yummy heated up. I love using my Ovenware Set to easily prep and pop in the oven in the same dish!
Dessert is everything for my boys and this requires little ingredients! Just pie crust and strawberries mainly! Yummy and looks so pretty. The Ovenware Set comes with the perfect pie dish that makes this dish so simple to do.
I put together 9 gifts that are perfect for Mother’s Day for moms who love to cook or any woman in your life that loves being in the kitchen!
Cooking has helped me bond with my boys and learning how to make basic and easy recipes make me happy. Our family bonds over food and teaching them to help me in the kitchen is a great activity. I hopefully inspired you to cook with your family as well and take a peek at Staub for gifts!
