As a full time middle school English teacher and mama of one energetic tot, I jump at the opportunity for some mom time out.  Each and every night I find solace in our cozy little kitchen where my stress melts away with each turn of the wooden spoon.  The likelihood of cooking with no one (cough* cough* Stella) running through my legs is rare, but that doesn’t mean I can’t put on my apron and compile an array of random ingredients while backing up Ella Fitzgerald on Pandora, right?  For me, there has always been something so comforting about creating a meal for my family.  The stirring, the smelling, the savoring as I go…all of this is very cathartic for me.   It is a ritual that I look forward to before we sit down and share our days with one another.  Not only is cooking a way to get some precious me time, but also serves as an expression of love for my family.
