Fuss Free Cooking

I work as a full time accountant. As my beloved and I both work full time, we like to come home delicious and effortless meals (and often Asian inspired dishes). This is what my blog is about - fuss free cooking! When work and life commitments get in the way, we have to be clever about how we tackle home cooking.  It's all about cooking smart in the Fuss Free Cooking community!
