I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. Between cooking for meals, baking and cleaning up...it seems like most of the day is spent in there. And always at the end of the day my kitchen still looks a mess. In a perfect world it would be spotless, but I don't live in a perfect world.
I have found that cooking has helped me overcome a lot of my fears of food. Meat has always been a hurdle for me, but I married a man who loves meat..so I cook it. Now I can honestly say it doesn't bother me as much. It's also been a great way for me to introduce a healthy relationship with food to my daughters. It's something to be enjoyed and something to experiment with. We try new things, that don't always come out right, but it's the experience that counts.
I encourage you today to step out with something new. Involve your daughters (or sons) in the cooking experience. If you have a bad relationship with food, use it to help yourself mend that and teach your daughter something else. Be bold.

Sadly the site that I got this idea from is not longer up and running. Otherwise I would send you all over there for the recipe. But really all you need is cutout cookie dough and jolly ranchers. Happy baking!
