It really has been a while since I have logged any recipes. The little man in the photo is what has pulled me away for so long. I have missed cooking and blogging about it. But don’t fret. I am coming back very soon. For the past nine months I was baking a little person. The timer went off about 6 weeks ago and we pulled him out of the oven. He is a perfect little angel and I am enjoying being a mommy.
The further along I was with my pregnancy the less interested I became in cooking. The last trimester was really challenging since I didn’t feel like myself. I attempted to cook in my last month. I was feeling energetic and it was like someone had turned on my pilot light. Half way through cooking I was feeling clumsy (more than usual) and I couldn’t reach certain things and just didn’t feel welcome in my own kitchen. My husband had to step in and complete cooking our meal, otherwise we would have ordered take out since I was about to burn everything. So I succumbed to my pregnant body that was making it difficult for me to cook. Honestly, I had not had the desire to cook anyway, so I was fine with waiting a few more weeks to cook again.
I am happy to report my cooking skills, desire, passion and flavors have all returned. My kitchen has welcomed me back with open arms and I am ready to face my pots and pans again. I have been cooking up a storm for the last couple of weeks. Not being able to cook felt as if all the air was sucked out of the world around me. I am busy in the kitchen and will be sharing some yummy goodness with you soon.
Stay tuned . . . .
