Cooking

Cooking is something I never thought I would love to do. When I was young, I 'hate' doing house chores, specifically cooking! Yes, I know 'hate' is a strong word, but I think that's the right word to describe how I feel whenever my mom, dad, or older sister would ask me to do something in the house back then. I just thought it's complicated and so not for me.

Then things changed when we migrated here in the States. My parents worked double job 7 days a week, and I was left with my two younger siblings in the house everyday. I must admit, it wasn't fun at all. I mean, I honestly think we are starving! HAHA I got tired of eating the same thing over and over again. My mom would cook food for us before she leaves for work in the morning, and that's basically our food for the whole day. We had to re-heat it and or instead, we can just eat can foods like tuna, sardines, corned beef, sausage, and spam. Well, for my younger brother that's probably not a problem at all, because those are his favorites. But, for me and my younger sister, it's not something we can EAT everyday. We get sick of it!

Long story short, I finally realized that I had to help my parents out to look and care after my siblings more, most especially when we're left in the house alone. So one day, I just woke up and started researching for recipes online... practiced it and little did I know, I'll be able to reach this point where I actually want to go back to school and study culinary. Yay! :)

It feels great whenever my sister and brother would finish the food I cooked or when they would say how delicious it was. It motivates and encourages me more to prepare a good meal for them. Now, I can say that cooking has become part of my daily routine. It's like I feel crippled not being able to do it. :) Funny! I know! Anyway, I really hope I can go back to school and learn more... I dream of having my own cooking book someday. ;)
Happy cooking everyone! God Bless!
