I have never been much of a cook but I do know my way around the kitchen. Yes, sounds like an oxymoron. But I guess what I'm trying to say ... I don't fully enjoy cooking but I do a fantastic job of it. My food always looks and tastes great! My concern has to do with the lack of care that I transfer to my food. With the holidays being right around the corner, I want to prepare my food with love, soul and compassion. I believe that same love that I make it with is transferred to those who eat my food. That's the true definition of soul food. So this is my struggle. What can I do to think of happy thoughts while in the kitchen? Some people have suggested that I think about how happy my loved ones feel when they dig in. Others suggest that it will come with time and growth of my family (ie - have some babies). Some just say pray on it. Well I want to hear from you... If you have any advice at all...drop me a line.
