I haven’t always been able to cook. Cooking was that elusive skill that seemed to have passed me over. In fact, if I am perfectly honest, it’s only been in the last four to five years that I have really learned the skill of cooking. So how did I learn to cook?

To be honest, I couldn’t even boil water for noodles. My mother had always doneRead More →

This year I am making changes and embracing life. Or at least trying to. For years I have struggled to focus and get my life together. I may be able to stick to a routine for a week, but then after that everything falls apart. A lot of my failure revolved around my anxiety and depression. It’s hard to keep things going when your brain tells you everything is going wrong – even if it isn’t. One thing that I have found that helps, is to write things down. Having a list to remind me what needs to get done is great. I don’t alwaysRead More →
