Let’s start with this. Covid kicked my ass. You may have noticed that the page has gone a little quiet over the last few months and it is directly related to the mental drag that the pandemic brought with it. We’ve spent so much time as parents trying to keep our kids from suffering that I’m guessing I’m not the only one who had to fight through the fog.
Not all was bad, though. After the first few months of having takeout on a daily basis, I decided to use my newfound home time to learn how to make actual meals for my family. It was also necessary to help battle the…roundness I was developing. That said, I still enjoy the occasional slice of bacon every now and then…
After posting a few of my culinary attempts on social media, I received an email from the amazing folks at Cuisipro, asking if I needed some new cookware to help with my adventures in the kitchen. Now, I don’t want to lead you to thinking that I’m now a Gordon Ramsey close because that’s far from the case.
What I’m talking about is upgrading from grilled cheese to fajitas with fresh chicken and all the colours of the rainbow. Even that felt like a gauntlet I wasn’t prior to the lockdowns and now it’s a regular staple of our weekly diet. Having the dual Cuisipro frying pans setup has definitely helped make things a lot easier when putting together meals with multiple components.
When we’re not getting our healthy on, we still like to engage in a little pizza night action here and there. I haven’t had a chance to try the Cuisipro pizza cutter yet because the kids keep stealing it from me before I get a chance to play with it but I’ll find my opportunity soon! Maybe a personal pizza party while they are at school!!
All in all I am loving the new recipes I’m learning and now that I have the proper cookware I am planning on expanding my cooking horizons, whether the kids want to eat it or not hahaha.
Just to reiterate, I am the opposite of someone who ever thought I could make a good family meal and while I’m far from a professional chef, I am proud of the things I’ve learned to do. If you’re thinking of getting started in the kitchen but are scared, I highly encourage you to start small and work your way up to more ambitious things. It’s okay if it doesn’t turn out perfect the first time. You just have to keep tweaking things until you get it right! Happy cooking!!!
