Need to keep busy during these stressful times? Well, let’s check out some cool DIY Food Kits for Adults. Maybe it’s time to learn a new cooking or baking skill this year!
In the spring of last year, it was pretty obvious to my family that food would become an important part of our lives. With most activities eliminated, our family realized the bigger role food played in our pared-down lives.
We are cooking and baking 24/7, and with it comes tastier meals. Yes, we have become better chefs.
So, our family embraced our newfound love of food. And over the summer, my son organized a seven-course French dinner. So, each family member was responsible for about one to two dishes, and he and our daughter plated and served us the delicious food. I have to say that it was fun learning a few French recipes and adding some new cooking skills to our repertoire.
Recently we are planning our next dinner challenge. We all want to create an Indian meal (this website has an Indian Dinner Party Menu), with yummy food displayed in those cool copper stainless steel bowls.
Well, enough about us, let’s get you started on learning a new way of cooking some yummy food!
