Cooking Is Like Balancing Life

  • Sometimes it needs to be chilled.
  • Ingredients work together and mold into something. Life’s experiences have a way of doing that, too.
  • Try adding more spice.
  • Figure out which foods are not good for you and steer clear.
  • Venting is critical, as well as letting off steam.
  • Just like close friends, your go-to meals will be there when you need them.
  • If things fail, you might need to start over with new ingredients, or a different recipe, and it’s okay to get help.
  • Go for what’s good quality and well-respected.
  • There’s always the egg that holds things together.
  • It’s okay to try something new, at least once.
  • Start teaching children the basics early.
  • Measure out what you put in carefully and make sure it’s exactly what you need.
  • It’s always more fun to have people around to help.
  • Cooking to help others can make you feel fulfilled.
  • Outside presentation is great, but if what’s inside is horrible it won’t matter.
  • There are experts in cooking, but that doesn’t mean everyone has to be one.
  • Rushing things usually ends up in disaster. Be patient.
  • Making healthy choices is important, but we’re all going to make bad ones – it’s hard to resist.
  • Learn the basics and build upon what you know. It takes time.
  • Just like an uncluttered life, an uncluttered kitchen makes you feel better.
  • It always feels good when the meal is appreciated. Be sure to show the same appreciation to others.
  • Just like keeping record of your favorite recipes, keep records of your favorite memories.
  • No matter how hard you try there will be at least one dish that isn’t your strong suit, focus on your strengths – they will outweigh the others.
  • You can make it fun or not – it’s your choice.
  • Now and then it’s refreshing to eat out. It’s like a little vacation from cooking.
  • Taking time to marinate adds flavor and flair.
  • Cooking with kids is a lot more than making a meal.
  • Planning is always important, but last-minute impromptus can work out, too.
  • Don’t waste food – or time.
