I enjoy cooking. I would rather chop an onion than cut grass. So a teenager, I bargained my way out of doing yard work by offering to do laundry and cook dinner. My mom, who would much rather do yard work than housework, always agreed. I learned by watching my mom cook during the week, but I always felt comfortable in the kitchen from the time I was small. Even now, the kitchen is the heart of my home. Nothing makes me happier than having a family meal and seeing those I love around the table.
Keeping it Simple in the Kitchen
While I love to cook, I prefer to keep things simple in the kitchen, especially when the calendar is full. I rarely cook complicated recipes. I’ve made them, and some I repeat because they’re worth the effort. Mostly, I leave those recipes to others. Instead, I focus on delicious, easy to prepare food. Just recently, a family member reminded me that “easy” is a relative term. This particular family member struggles with chopping onions. She shared a picture of her struggle on social media, and I thought, “Sweetie, there’s a much easier way to do that.” I promised her a video of how to chop an onion. I know there are many ways to do this, but this is the one that works the best for me.
