Having a family is yes one of Gods greatest blessings. I can remember growing up and hearing the term Slaving over a hot stove. Things have changed tremendously from when I was growing up in that small town in Clarendon Jamaica. Now not only do you have electric and gas stoves, not the actual wood fire my grandmother, mother and myself had to cook with, not to mention how much the style of cooking has changed, back then there was no meal prep, menu planning, it was cooking what you have on hand. Hence the term my grandmother taught me how to use how little you have and turn it into some delicious, it does not have to be pretty, just have to be delicious.I say that to say this.We do it for the love of family. As Sophia Loren says in this quote.
The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking: Love for those you are cooking for.
