Recently I have been reminded that change, may it be good or bad, will happen with or with out your permission. At the beginning of May my mother was diagnosed with an incurable cancer called Multiple Myeloma. It is a nasty, ugly, and unfair disease that I had never heard of, but now know more than I wish to. Since her diagnosis I have been faced with how very fragile life and relationships are and I have just not been myself. I started this blog for fun and to share positive experiences. Since I have been fairly blue I didn't think it fair to myself or you to share my lack of positivity. And, to be honest, I have not done anything even remotely interesting in the kitchen.
Now that the craziness of her diagnosis and treatment schedules have calmed down I have had time to reflect on everything and myself. I cook because it makes me happy, it relieves my stresses and it brings me the best feeling to share my food with family and friends. So, I have made a promise to myself to get back into the kitchen and stop feeling so sorry for myself! I have several recipes I want to try and with the long 4th of July weekend coming up, I think that now is a perfect time to get started. Stay tuned this weekend for some fun posts!
