I have an idea and hopefully I have twenty some years to get it done. I'll need that much time! I want to make a cookbook for my children. Thus the name My Mama's Food. It has several meanings, for the entries in my journal it will mean me, my children's Mama. For me it means my dear Mom, their Mama Lu, for most of the recipes come from her and my grandma's and great grandmas. I do most of my cooking without a recipe, but sometimes they just need to be written down if we do not want them to be lost for future generations. When I left home I would have treasured a book like this, written by my Mom, so I want to try and do it for my children. I want to include photos of the kids helping me in the kitchen as they grow and eat what we make. What memories they will have when cooking in their own kitchen's and teaching their children to cook and sharing these memories with them and showing them pictures of themselves learning to cook with their Mama. I think it's a grand idea, now if I can pull it off!

Tuna and Roasted Peppers Wrap

You say you don't like tuna? Try this, it's a great source of protein, especially if you are pregnant! I was surprised at how the peppers masked the tuna flavor and I like tuna!


Roasted red and yellow peppers
Ranch dressing
Caesar dressing


Mix equal parts of the dressings and spread down the center of a tortilla.
Top with tuna (drained) and peppers.

Enjoy this super easy meal.  If you don't want to roast the peppers yourself you can buy them canned.
