My kitchen gives me joy!

My love for cooking comes from my mother. I can’t think of a day that I haven’t seen her busy in the kitchen. When my sister and I still lived at home she always started with supper form 4h in the afternoon. She very seldom use a packet to make any meal, she always starts from scratch. Take outs was not so popular in our family. Nothing could match my mom’s food.

On Fridays when I came home,¬†there was always a cake on the table. Usually a custard cake (o just thinking about it… it was¬†delicious)

So I realized that through cooking you can create a festive atmosphere in your house. Everyone that walks into the house after a long day work gets excited if they smell the food. The thought that someone was thinking of them and prepared them a meal, makes them feel special. It is a way of getting friends and family to sit around the table and talk about the day and joking about silly things.

I love having friends over! I love preparing the meal and putting it all together. Although it is usually just pasta or a braai, it is always nice having people over and treating them.

Well my kitchen isn’t very big… my space is quite limited but it works for me!

The other day I made food in my mom’s kitchen, it was a TREAT! I realized how much it helps to have space and all the special equipment. So I already started a little folder with all my kitchen ideas… My kitchen is my space to unwind, it is where deep conversations are shared and where I clear my head after a long day. It is a place of creativity and a place where my way of blessing other people starts…
