Cooking has never been my favorite chore. It’s always been just that to me — a chore. But a funny thing has been happening lately. I don’t know if it’s just because I want to provide healthier meals for my family or because I suddenly have more time on my hands now that Tara and I have turned in our manuscript, but I find myself wanting to cook more. And, even more surprisingly, enjoying it when I do cook!
I know I’m not alone in my aversion, but I also know that there are plenty of people who are happiest in the kitchen.
So today I want to know…
Do you enjoy cooking?
Do you enjoy certain things more than others?
If you like to cook, when did you first discover that it was something you enjoy?
What is your favorite thing to make?
Looking forward to reading your answers!
Although we have gotten hardly any snow at all this winter, it’s been unbelievably cold and windy. Add to that the fact that we keep our home at a ridiculously low temperature (currently 61 degrees), and I’m all about comfort foods that warm us up from the inside out. While I love a good soup, my husband and daughters don’t share my enthusiasm, so our comfort foods usually include a big pan of stuffed shells or baked ziti. And there’s nothing I love more for lunch than one of my Sean’s famous grilled cheese sandwiches hot off the grill.
Today I want to know…
What are your favorite comfort foods during winter?
Are you a soup and stew kinda person? Or do you prefer casseroles?
Do you have a favorite recipe that has been passed down through your family?
What are your favorite breakfasts and lunches on cold wintry days?
Looking forward to reading your answers (and adding some more ideas to my list of meals!).
