My Kitchen Retreat. Well, it’s a retreat of sorts. Not the spa type of retreat. The kitchen is simply my happy, peaceful place where I find cooking brings me joy, happiness and relaxation. So here I go. My first post on my blog. Yay! Welcome! I’m excited!
Cooking on the Weekends is about exactly that — cooking on the weekends! There’s more free time on the weekends than during busy weekdays. More time to braise, roast, layer, saute, grill, chop, mix, mash, and create in the kitchen. More time to entertain friends and family. And hopefully . . . more time to relax and enjoy meals!
That said, I have to admit right off: I rarely feel that I have more time on the weekends. Seven days a week, I’m only barely keeping up with everything. It’s impossible to get ahead. And yes, as it turns out I do also cook on weekdays.
To be honest, it’s crazy at my house on the weekends. And I mean crazy. Crazy features my two little boys with unbelievable energy and my husband who just might have the kids beat in the enthusiasm department! It’s mayhem. It’s chaotic. It’s loud. It’s fun. And it’s very sweet. My boys are the primary focus of my life, and I love it.On the weekends I retreat to the kitchen. Hence, Kitchen Retreat. I love it there. No matter what’s going on in the house, the kitchen is pretty peaceful. It’s a happy place where I’m comfortable. On any Saturday or Sunday, I’m testing recipes, photographing food, cooking and planning meals. So yes, I retreat to my cozy kitchen where I can still hear all the hullabaloo . . . and where I can cook.
You can learn more about me, and how I feel about food here.
And in the meantime, where do you retreat? When do you love to cook? I’m interested. I want to know!
