My little kitchen therapy

0 comments

Me and my family just got settled into our cozy new home, which is really my granny’s old house. I remember watching her cook and how good everything tasted. It’s nostalgic for me to be in this kitchen now that I’m a grown up and she’s gone. It’s so strange how she always had the most beat up pots and pans but everything always tasted so good. I happen to be a decent cook but I really want to be a better one. My son is overweight and I worry about his health because he’s only 5 and my daughter wants a 4 course meal everyday. I really want to oblige and give her that at least a couple of times a week. I borrowed my sisters colorful pots and pans and was amazed that they worked better than my old beat up cheapies. My sister is really into kitchen gadgets and she use to go on and on about her cookware. In my eyes, If you’ve seen one pot you’ve seen them all.

Well, I guess I was wrong. I’ve been cooking with her pots and pans for a month now and I don’t mind because I don’t break a sweat cleaning food off of them. My kids have been doing so much better with good food in their happy tummies. My son actually eats vegetables!!! I remember the days when I used to tell him over and over that ice cream was not a meal. He’d always look at me and say, “it’s a meal to me” lol. My daughter feels like she’s eating out and of course that makes mama feel really good. The kids come in the kitchen and see everything cooking on the stove and comment on how pretty the Rachael Ray cookware looks. Who thought pots and pans could be so pretty?

I’m just so grateful that everyone is finally eating the way they are supposed to. We actually sit at the table together now and talk while we eat. What I’ve managed to create is a little bit of kitchen therapy. This is the happiest part of my day. When we are able to connect over something as simple as good food, pretty pots…lol and how everyone’s day was, it really does give me encouragement. A few years ago my children’s pediatrician was worried that my son might be diabetic, but no more. My kitchen therapy has banished that scary possibility.

Not My Favorite Rice Cooker

0 comments

A little-known fact about my husband: he spent five years in Korea and surrounding Asian countries before we met and got married. He brought back with him a love of Asian food, Korean in particular. In the years since we have been together, we have eaten things like Beef Bulgogi and Kimchi fried rice plus many more. He is the cook when it comes to these meals, partly because he loves to do it and partly because he is so good at it (and partly because I am a little bit lazy and all the chopping and dicing makes me crazy).

He travels for work, though, and when he is home he doesn’t really want to spend a lot of time cooking. This last trip, he was gone for six weeks and it was all I could do to get him to stop sleeping, much less encourage him to cook. I thought I would learn how to cook at least one of his favorite dishes while he was gone–you know, being the good wife and all, plus the kids were clamoring for some Korean lettuce wraps. Simple enough, right?

Wrong. The first mistake I made was in not realizing that the rice cooker we have was one he brought back from Korea. Meaning, of course, that the instructions (including the control buttons) were written in Korean. I thought I could guess which one was correct-but no. Apparently there is a “Keep Warm” setting, which I found out after I checked the rice and it was only mildly warm. We had lettuce wraps minus rice that night.

Last week, I thought I would give it another try. This time, I put just a little bit of rice and water in and hit a different button just to see if it would cook it. Success! So I dumped that bit out and measured the correct amounts of water and rice and turned it on. After about 30 minutes, I went back into the kitchen to discover that the rice cooker had completely overflowed. There was rice water all over the counter and the floor. Do you know how sticky rice water can be? We had scrambled eggs.

Needless to say, I have quit trying. If my husband ever wants me to learn how to cook Korean food, he better find one of the best rice cookers on Amazon and present it to me with a huge red bow and a heartfelt thanks for the effort. Otherwise, I will just stay out of the kitchen while he cooks and everyone will be much happier!
