Cooking is a great technique for relaxing. I've been cooking for over 30 years & there always seems to be something to learn or a new way to prepare something. It's a cool thing to discover all of the various recipes for the same dish. I have 4 amazing kids & 1 sweetie pie granddaughter. I also love to cook w/ my kids, & really enjoy when they cook. They all have their favorites, especially on holidays. Mah chubby grandbaby!
