Food and blessings.

A stratta with peppers/tomatoes/ham.
I got the original recipe from Jacqueline
Rosemary Potatoes.
Recipe from my mom.
Grilled veggies.
From Trader Joes.

Before I married Leif I never cooked. I could make things like eggs and pancakes but nothing too serious. I didn't enjoy cooking and would rather spend my time somewhere else other than the kitchen. When Leif and I did get married though, I vowed I would learn how to cook. But then I got pregnant and decided to put off cooking for a bit. Leif was usually in charge of meals. A few times he expressed to me that this was a bit frustrating and I would roll my eyes and remind him that I was pregnant.

This really bothered me though, and I felt like such a terrible wife. I had promised to serve him and take care of him. And while there are plenty of others ways I could and can do that, he wanted me to do that through cooking. Well a a few months back I got serious about cooking and when I did that, I realized that I loved it. I also love that this is another way I can bless and serve my husband. Which is something that is very important to me. I love that I am now able to help my husband start his day off with breakfast and have dinner waiting for him when he gets home. :)

Its fun to bless others through food.


So far my favorite thing to make has been twice baked potatoes. So simple and easy. Plus you can be really creative with them!

What is your favorite dish to cook?

I feel the same way that you do about cooking for your family. The meals look great. Are you getting them from a cookbook or just coming up with them.

I really don't have a favorite dish, but I seem to always do comfort food best.

It definately is fun to bless others with food. I cook for my family every sunday (it lasts the whole wee). My favorite meal to cook is mac & cheese, it's simple and tasty.

this is how I'm feeling too...I am living abroad and am about to hire a woman to clean once a week. I was told that she could cook as well, but I really prefer to make my own food..its a bit of a spiritual experience for me...maybe I will hire her to teach me a few things about the local cuisine and then prepare them myself in the future...
