This has been a summer of firsts. Three kids at home in a tiny little house, my first book, experimenting with a vegan diet, which ultimately leads to cooking. Lots and lots of cooking. I’m a baker by nature, not a “cooker”, and the idea of chopping, dicing, and standing there stirring things makes my eyes roll back in my head. But I’m trying it, and there’s something to be said for it, I guess. Anyway, today I’m using up the last of our tomatoes and I’m trying homemade marinara, using this recipe. Let’s see how it goes, folks.
It’s probably the most stressful time of my entire life, but also the most rewarding. I’m trying to learn how to keep on top of things and chill out simultaneously. Tough call! Do you have any helpful tips, my friends? How do you not only balance, but balance well?
