The goodies are all here in my kitchen. I've got a gorgeous, retro-looking red stand mixer. I've got great new cookware, an instant-read probe thermometer, an immersion blender -- all the bells and whistles.
So now to start cooking. I need to learn to cook others' recipes first, then start developig my own. Right now, my flavor combinations don't work out the way I think they will, so I need practice and to learn how things will develop together.
So...who'd like to be a guinea pig? ;)
Strength, flexibility, and stronger, healthier cooking ability!
I'm starting on program of nutritious cooking for myself, based on fresh and healthy ingredients. I'm also amping up my efforts at walking and stretching to regain strength and flexibility.
I'm 60 and I live in the California Wine Country. I have two kids, a disabled son in San Francisco (lives with his Dad) and a little angel-girl in Heaven.
I love cooking and cooking shows, football, knitting, movies, and ANYTHING to do with Ireland!

Glad to see you are still on SP. I am back again. This time I am determined to reach my goal. I had gastric sleeve surgery in August and have lost 56 lbs. after reaching an all time high of 309 lbs. Feeling much better now and looking forward to getting stronger and leaner.
Hope you are doing well. Stop by my page and say hi. I posted a new blog about my surgery. It has really changed how I deal with food. Starting to exercise this week after a long time. Will have to take it slow. The hardest part is getting started because I am afraid of not being able to do it. Must get past the mental block. I know I have more energy so I should be fine.
I would like to do a 5k in the Spring. That is one of my goals. My weight loss goal for December is 10-12 lbs.
Have a great weekend and keep Sparkin'!
