Welcome to Cooking For The Time Challenged!
My motive for starting this blog is primarily practical: I have reached the stage where I can no longer find my recipes. It has been taking me too much time to find the recipes that I want to cook.
I thought that if I created a blog, they would be easier to organize and retrieve.
In addition, it occurred to me that other people could benefit from my experience of juggling work, home and family responsibilities.
I am married and I have 2 children with special needs. One of my daughters, Yaffa, used to be on a feeding tube. My other daughter, Raizel, used to be on a special diet called the Feingold Diet. My husband, Jay, is on the Mediterranean Diet for health reasons. For personal health reasons, I do not eat flour, sugar, wheat, eggs or dairy. So, between all our dietary limitations, I have many culinary challenges.
I also work more than full time by necessity. Food prep, set up and clean up are daily opportunities for organizational growth and development.
I always say, “How we do anything is how we do everything.” The secret to good food is starting with the right ingredients and love. I also believe that our thoughts are very powerful. So, I pray while I cook, and set my intentions on positive and loving thoughts. I am convinced that the food tastes better that way!
When I first started this blog, my husband laughed at the idea of a blog about food. Now, my husband has redeemed himself. He has gained a greater appreciation for the importance of cooking with love and prayer. The power of prayer and positive thinking runs deep!
The goal of this blog is to share my recipes, cooking strategies and sundry thoughts and suggestions on preparing and serving home cooked meals — while juggling work, special needs and special diets within the dietary guidelines of the Jewish faith (Kashrut).
I try to make food that is fast, easy, and all natural. I call it cooking with maximum taste for minimal time. So, you can see that cooking for the time challenged is me!
I am so happy that you have dropped by to visit.
