I truly enjoy being in the kitchen, chopping and dicing, tasting and testing. Cooking calms me… When I have time. During the week 30-minute and semi-homemade meals are more my style. Just because something takes hardly any time to make or uses no more than 3 ingredients does not mean it isn’t tasty!

Yesterday… #elf4Health 11/27 Day 2: Send a card or handwritten note to a friend.
“Remember, ‘No one’s more important than people’! In other words, friendship is the most important thing–not career or housework, or one’s fatigue–and it needs to be tended and nurtured.” ~Julia Child
