Cooking is quickly becoming therapeutic. There is a certain satisfaction that comes from preparing a delicious meal, then devouring it and receiving praise for its deliciousness. Philosophers say a lot of things, such as love being the key ingredient to a delicious meal. Perhaps that is true. But I say that a meal both made with and then received with love leads to the ultimate deliciousness.
It is amazing that I can talk so positively about cooking. Prior to getting married it was my biggest fear and nuisance. I hated it, avoided it, and never thought I would do it. My confidence skill was zero. But, thanks to the nurturing love of my husband, this has changed and with exploration and freedom to explore in an nonthreatening environment - it has become in fact therapeutic and something I look forward to everyday.
Here are some of my favorites from this winter - I hope you will find them as enjoyable and in the end delicious as we have:
Curried Chicken Corn Chowder
They are definitely recipes that will be made again!
