Every Super Mom dreams of cooking healthy, low cost, dishes to her children since everyone is suffering from the economic situation. Still, we don't want to feed our children nuggets and mac and cheese every day. They need to have a back up of nutrients and vitamins which is only possible if they eat a well balanced diet. It could be expensive to buy fresh Flounder or Cod, that is why I choose recipes that work great with frozen fish. Choose the kind you can afford and it will taste delightful if you follow " How to be Super Mom" recipes.
