Lisa's Dinnertime Dish

Over the years I have become passionate about food and cooking. I have not always been a fabulous cook, it has definitely been a learning experience for me, but well worth the effort. I take great pride in making food for friends and family! My hope is to inspire others to get into the kitchen and cook for themselves and their loved ones. One of life's great pleasures is to sit down to a meal that you have made, and enjoy it with those you love!! I have been married to my wonderful husband, Steve, for 25 years and I have three fantastic kids, Nicole, 23, Kelly, 21 and Alex, 18. Besides cooking, I love to travel with my family and spend time at our cabin in Northern Minnesota.
