My husband was leery of me even posting this one because he said just reading it stressed him out. This one is not about cooking or feeding my family, but I felt like sharing our recent stress.
The fact that I am getting this post (and last week's post) out this week is a bit of a triumph. Last week, we were informed that we need to vacate our apartment no later than November 1st.

Missing my daughters has probably been the hardest part of quarantine. We finally decided to try a socially distanced meal as both my older daughters always appreciate my cooking. It was better than I could have expected.

I empathize with business owners who are having to make tough decisions once again on how and when to reopen. I lean … Continue reading Quarantine Week 15
So, I spend a ton of time trying to figure out how to feed my family nutritious and exciting meals. Some days, that can be a positive experience, and others it is a major heartache. First, we have a 10-year-old. Any parents out there know that kids are notoriously frustrating when it comes to food. … Continue reading Stop People Pleasing and Just Cook!
