Description

If you're cooking for a large family and want to make your budget go farther, have eaters with a variety of tastes and preferences, or just want to try recipes that have spices and tastes that are a bit different from the norm, cookbook author Tiffany Moen can help. The mother of eight children, Tiffany spent many years finding and perfecting recipes for her multicultural family. The recipes in this cookbook were created while Tiffany was preparing meals and would find that she was missing an ingredient to a recipe, wanted to improve one she had tried, or she was inspired by something she found on sale at the market. As her children grew, it was up to Tiffany to stretch the dollars and fill the stomachs and that meant fresh food made at home. The result is recipes that create delicious food, happy palates, and the wish that there is enough for leftovers.


About the Author

A resident of Georgia and a native of Florida, Tiffany Moen's heart was always pulling her to be a mom. After having three healthy children, Tiffany felt called to adopt and, with her husband Eric in agreement, they adopted five children from various countries. The idea for a cookbook came about during a very stressful time when Eric was unemployed. Within four months of starting, she had written, cooked, verified, and photographed the recipes in this book. A lot of the inspiration for her recipes came from wanting to incorporate the children's various ethnic origins and tastes into her cooking. Using her creativity to try new ingredients in recipes and visiting Asian and Hispanic markets for new ideas has had a big impact on her recipes. She came up with the name, "The Spices of My Life" because it has been both her love for experimenting with spices and ingredients in the kitchen, and the addition of each child to their family, that has truly made her food and life so interesting.
