Cooking - it's my therapeutic outlet. I love to bake even though I generally really have no desire to eat the sweet treats. I love the homey feeling that it gives me and the smell it sends through the air. I want Olivia to look back on those moments of me baking cookies and remember it with a happiness or thoughts of her stuffing her little face :).
Satisfaction to me is when I cook a meal and she enjoys it, cleaning her plate and asking for more. But it CAN'T BE TOO SPICY!!! (I'm still hoping she outgrows this phase and embraces my love of everything hot)
