Website links to check out

I REALLY have no idea what I am doing here, hahaha! I'm trying to format the blog so we can post related website links to check out for great ideas, coupons, etc. I haven't been able to figure it out yet so if anyone know how to do that PLEASE let me know.

I also want to figure out how to organize the page to have sections for recipes, related links, comments, questions, etc...

In the meantime, check out this site for good healthy ideas.

Welcome to Busy Mom Ideas

Hey everyone: we have decided to create a blog to share dinner ideas and other tips for busy mom's and families. I have never been a blogger but I struggle everyday with coming up with good easy dinner ideas - and the funny thing is I watch the food network ALL DAY LONG. So, feel free to post questions, ideas, recipes, etc .... I am going to try a new recipe tonight and will post it tomorrow and let you know how it turned out!
