In fact, I remember a time when I would set out to make the easiest and fastest thing possible, usually involving frozen pre-made meals from the grocery store. I met Alex a couple of years ago through Twitter and food blogs, and when we friended each other on Facebook we found ourselves asking often about the question of the day: what’s for dinner at your house?
