Many of you may not know but I just LOVE cooking! My grandmother perfected her family recipes and one day became a pretty darn amazing cook. She is also a two times cancer survivor and has lost many people dear to her in her lifetime. Her cooking helps keep her going and her desire to prepare a wonderful delicious meal for the family keeps them together.
Her passion for cooking really pushed me to enjoy it. I remember being about 2 years old sitting on the counter helping her make cookies, as I grew older she taught me more indepth recipes, until one day I took the wheel and started perfecting her recipes. Our cooking passion and tricks are an endless circle and even though now we live 3,000 miles away our passion for cooking couldn’t be closer. I still call her regulatory and say “Raree, look what I made, you need to try this!”
Of course as age kicks in she doesn’t get as much family dinners and cooking for one done as much as she used to, but she still has that desire. That passion reminds me to not be the “boring housewife,” and to actually learn to cook and let a man fall in love with me through my cooking, (in addition to my smarts and beauty of course.)
So today, I wanted to share with you a few food delivery services out there that I feel are worth trying. Each of them are a little different, all have difference prices, variety, some offer more kid and family oriented meals and others more for selective eaters. Whatever your food habits are, I recommend trying these services for at least one month to see how it can bring the passion of cooking out for you.
