Last year I ate many meals out. While I cooked like a champ for years, the bouts of sadness and a lack of feeling appreciated over the last 5 years made me lose the joy of cooking. It would come in bouts like sadness where I would find the ability to create meals, but it was not consistent.
During the last month, I found myself inspired to cook again, inspired to find new recipes to try and create delicious food again. It is quite different to cook when everything you make is appreciated fully.
