As my boys were growing up, there was one special requirement…they had to learn to cook. I didn’t want them going out into the world living on frozen pizza, cold cereal and ramen noodles. While my younger son loved cooking, my older son hated it. Oddly, now that the latter is out on his own, he has taken a liking to cooking and does so regularly, with a special talent for developing sauces. I’d like to think our time together in the kitchen had something to do with that and laid the foundation.
I have many fond memories of spending time in the kitchen with my boys, helping my older son develop special desserts and taking online cooking classes with my younger son. Food is central to so much of our society, our holidays and our family lives. However, so often, on person alone is responsible for the preparation. It doesn’t have to be that way. Preparing food together, as a family, can be just as meaningful as eating it, maybe more so. Today, I have 10 recipes that work well in family preparation. I hope this inspires you to spend some time in the kitchen with the ones you love.
Until next time, Namaste my friends.
