A Little Inspiration for Everyday Cooks
Ever feel like good meals are as likely to show up on your table as $1000 checks in the mail? Meal making has been made out to be so hard, so difficult and so impossible. More than cooking skills, new gadgets and more recipes, I sometimes think what we need most is just a dose of plain old hope, i.e., a deep-rooted belief that making good, wholesome food each day is entirely doable.
As an example, I received this email from Carol right after she had registered for a Whole Kitchen Cooking Class:
“Looking forward to the class. I don’t know much about cooking. I try to eat healthy but it requires WORK.”
So it warmed my heart when, after class was over, Carol emailed again.
Hey Mary, Just wanted to share with you that I made the tastiest healthy soup this evening using leftover chicken breasts and good veggies from the fridge. It was quick, easy, and delicious, and I couldn’t have done it before your class. I’m so proud of myself!”
While the many skills, tips and strategies we learned in class undoubtedly contributed greatly to Carol’s confidence and enthusiasm, I have no doubt that a newly blossomed seed of hope will keep her cooking long into the future, and enjoying it, too.
