I have been cooking a long time. Growing up I did not like to cook. My mother is surprised that was my career. I was a caregiver and the cook did not show up one day. I said let me do it and that was how I got started. A big Retirement Facility even had me come and cook for them.
I have cooked at many schools and love the kiddos. My last cooking job was at a Memory Care Facility for 13 years, and I had a fellow that works there tell me my food was so good because I sprinkled it with love before I served it.
Now for those of you who do not know how to cook let’s get started. When it comes to cooking, it is important to keep in mind that everyone started somewhere. I do not know of a single person who was born with a wooden cooking spoon and ready to go.
You spend a big part of your day cooking, so why not get your family in on the act.
Don’t let the years pass you by without taking the opportunity to share, cook and write down your family’s favorite recipes. Start by making your own family cookbook.
Get your kids involved in cooking by showing them how each recipe is prepared. Sometimes a lot is left out in family recipes and many recipes have different ways of being prepared.
Don’t just give your kids the recipe prepare it with them. This will help pass down short cuts and discover different ways of making the tried and true recipes your family loves.
I recently went to Arizona to see my cute granddaughters and we made sugar cookies for them to decorate. Make Memories everyday in you children and grandchildren’s lives.
