Imagine coming in after a busy day and successfully placing a homemade meal on the table while your family runs to the kitchen because they can’t wait for what you cooked. Yes, you! . You sit together around the table and talk about your day while everyone scrapes their plates clean, and as you soak up the compliments you feel proud to feed your family food they love to eat.
In 2013 I finally had my own place and I was ecstatic to start cooking! I felt like there was this pressure that to be the perfect wife, I had to make perfect and delicious dinners. But, there were numerous nights my husband looked at me with a face that silently asked if we could go out to dinner instead of eating what I had just put on his plate. I often called my mom saying “Help! I don’t remember how to cook rice!” or “What temperature am I supposed to bake chicken at?”. It was always a disaster when she didn’t answer the phone, my heart sunk and I knew dinner would most likely be an epic fail.
Day after day I researched cooking techniques, took notes and tried and tried again. I finally gained confidence in the kitchen by going back to, and learning the basics. It was a lot of trial and error, and a lot of practice! Today, I love to jump into my kitchen and whip something up for dinner. My family loves it and it is a great time to be together. I love that I enjoy my time in the kitchen now, and I can’t wait to help you enjoy the kitchen as well! I’d love to help as you gain your confidence in the kitchen and start pleasing your family with those delicious meals.
