I will be the first to admit that throwing a prepared meal in the microwave or oven is absurdly easier than putting together a meal from raw ingredients. But honestly, nothing beats a home cooked meal, not even the restaurants. And here’s why.
Call me cheesy, but there’s something a little magical in preparing a meal with your loved ones. Even if only one—or none—of you know what you’re doing. Even if you’re making something simple. Even if it makes a mess or doesn’t turn out as you had hoped. I’ve learned to really cherish the laughter, the learning and even the speed bumps that come with cooking as a team. Creating something together is special, and sitting down to enjoy your creation is the proverbial icing on the cake!
What’s your favorite thing to cook with your family?
