Hi moms.sick, welcome to our fibro forum, we have alot of great people and Im sure some of them will be able to offer you great advice. As far as short cuts I really dont have any great suggestions. I do very little cooking, I do mostly microwave meals around here. lol
I have never in my life been one to love to cook. So hopefully you will get some better suggestions.
As far as support groups for family and friends I believe there is a caregivers support group on http:www.butyoudontlooksick.com. I hope this helps and post anytime we are here to try and help.
