The kitchens are set...

(With a nod to Cupcake Wars)

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 ...

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? ;)

Persist

The only way to fail is to give up. Whatever comes, whatever happens, keep going.

Fix your eyes on the goal, and persist. Your vision, your commitment, and your actions will take you there.

When you can make great big strides, make them. When you can take only small steps, take them.

See every moment as the opportunity that it is. When the wind is at your back, keep going, and when the wind is blowing against you, keep going.

Make good and effective use of whatever you encounter. Tap into the positive value that is always there.

Know precisely where you wish to go and why. Keep going, and you are there.

(Ralph Marston)

"How would your life be different if . . . You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day . . . You pay attention to what you feed your mind your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today."

Crowd out poor health habits. Choose activity before TV. Eat 3 veggies first for each meal. You will crowd out the less healthy choices.

If you can't run, then walk.
If you can walk, then crawl.
But, whatever you do,
You have to keep moving forward."
