Keep Calm & Carry on Cooking

Simply put and oh so true – “Keep calm and carry on cooking”. When Trump is blowing up Twitter and I can’t take any more political talk, I cook. When I’m happy, sad, nervous, or excited… I cook. Food heals, lights a fire in you; calms and fills our souls. Food connects us all across our world. The connections and memories we make sharing a meal and a feeling comes from the flavors we experience at that time. Cooking is my go-to for an escape – it can even be a quiet time to reflect and connect within myself.

If you’re into gluten free, vegan, vegetarian or like to whip up burgers, steaks, and meatballs, cooking is a great way to let your mind play and your soul escape. There’s a reason they call some food “soul food”, because it really does nurture your soul.

People, including myself, worry day to day about all sorts of troubles. If you take a step back and take a deep breath, you’ll see life is truly simple. I know I need to look at life with the ten thousand foot approach more often and as a big picture vs the little problems that won’t matter later on. Take each day as it comes, be grateful, be kind, and most important, “KEEP CALM and CARRY ON COOKING”.
