How Anyone Can Learn to Love Cooking

There are some things we do out of pleasure. And then there are things that we have to do. Wouldn’t it be good, however, if those two things overlap? It would be oh so nice to do a job that we love; it wouldn’t even feel like working! And then there’s cooking. We all need to make dinner each night (apart from those nights when we get takeout). Rather than making it a laborious process each night, it should be something that we enjoy doing.

Homemade Chicken Nuggets {Frying Up Healthier with Hamilton Beach Air Fry Sure-Crisp Toaster Oven}

This year, many families are adjusting to new and different back to school schedules. Whether it's in the classroom or at home, so I know how important it is to make quick and convenient meals. I know I have been cooking SO MUCH this year and my grocery bill proves it. 

The Hamilton Beach Sure-Crisp™ Air Fry Toaster Oven will cook meals quickly and easily. Bake, air fry, broil, or toast in this versatile all-in-one toaster oven. The Sure-Crisp technology uses powerful, hot air to ensure food is browned and crisp every time. The large capacity toaster oven can fit up to 6 slices of bread or a 12" pizza. 

I am so excited for this because a few years ago my husband got rid of our air fryer because he said we never used it (which was true at the time), but now we cook at home so much more and it will be so nice to have the opportunity to fry different foods in a healthy way. But I love that it isn't just an air fryer, I love that it is a multi-purpose machine. We decided to make some homemade chicken nuggets because I think these will be a great meal-prep freezer item for my family.

Having Fun In The Kitchen With Your Kids

When you think of cooking with your children, you might think of all the mess involved and the time spent preparing and then cleaning up. Of course, It is much easier to get the cooking done yourself, but you will miss out on a fabulous bonding and learning experience with your children. Not only will you be passing on a valuable skill to your children- teaching them how to nourish themselves and other people, but you will also be creating memories in the kitchen that they will probably never forget.

Unfortunately, cooking from scratch is a tradition that has been somewhat forgotten in our fast-food culture. The ability to cook fresh ingredients and create dishes from scratch is a skill that our grandparents would have had, but increasingly is disappearing from society. IT is important to maintain our food culture, and to be able to be self-sufficient in the kitchen.
