I have to share this with everyone. I went to a Pamper Chef party yesterday and the consultant asked everyone there to give their name and one word that describes them in the kitchen and I said a New Beginner. I will explain this.
Before I was gluten free I did not like to cook, in fact, I cooked to just survive. Luckily my DH was not fussy as it never bothered him which was good for me.
When we worked, everyone thought that hubby and I went out a lot because I said I do not like to cook but in essence I did cook but out of sheer misery LOL.
I have been gluten free for two years and in the beginning I felt the same way and did not enjoy eating at all. Well my sister came for a visit during that time and looked around my kitchen and could not believe what I had or the lack of not having. Well she took me shopping and had me buy things like measuring cups and spoons, bowls to mix stuff in (don't laugh) as I did not have that in my house. We also bought a lot of other things that I could actually make a decent meal including a cookbook. I think that I did have some in the house but never opened them.
Well will now fast forward to now. I really enjoy cooking and baking - this is a first for me. I even made home made pies from scratch and they were actually good. I was not too sure and held my breath as they all ate it and got some great comments.
Cookbooks, well that was not in my dictionary and now I have one that are recipes that I downloaded from the websites. I even have them in alphabet order, did not get the dividers for them but that is on my next list.
I am always looking for new ways to make things, of course, I do not make anything gourmet but things that are fast and easy and actually they are really good, if I have to say so myself LOL.
I guess that I had to be gluten free to actually enjoy cooking and have been for almost 2 yrs.
I guess you can say there is hope for me after all. At least I hope so LOL.
