I rebuilt my cooking skills after Arlene passed by watching youtube videos. I learned how to make chicken cutlets, chicken fransese, chicken marsala, pork chops in a bourbon glaze, garlic bread, pasta in garlic and mushrooms (I add mushrooms to that, make it every week and get 2 meals out of it with a piece of grilled chicken). I also taught myself to make bowties in a brown sauce (also with mushrooms) and baked salmon, which I’ve also made on a wood plank and also in my smoker. I also learned how to make sauce which I’d never learned to make before.
I make all this tolerable by playing concert videos on youtube and at times playing air guitar. There is nothing like having a steak or spaggetti in garlic and oil while and watching Albert King, Muddy Waters or Kingfish Ingram play their brains out.

Before I went back to school and became a professor of history, I trained in French cooking. I have always loved cooking for both my husband and our friends. I always brought baked treats to Monday meetings at the university. Obviously COVID stopped that. Now that Rick is gone, I find myself really struggling to cook things. First, I don’t know how to cook for just one person. I recently found a great site – OneDishKitchen.com and got a book on cooking for one published by the site’s creator. I hope this will help get me back in the kitchen.

Yes… I cook, but not extensively… Nor everyday. I tend to eat simple, both for digestive reasons and just to keep it simple (the home currently lacks oven & space). I mainly cook for one, but always willing for my mother & elder sister, buy they each have different pallet and desire. Im FT caregiving for dad, so I do make separate meals for him as he is bedridden/hospice and can not chew well. I cherish making him nutritional options to attempt to get his calories up, and muscel from desentegrating faster. I do not eat as Id prefer due to lack of refrigeration/cabinet & prep space,as well as lack of actual needed time for shopping & mainly prepping ingredients (veggies etc). And lack of time for learning, reading, experimenting (as Im interested in Raw Whole Goods, Mediteranean Meals.

I used the grill a few times and I was treated to a few restaurant meals, but I really can’t remember what else I ate these past 4 months. I think there may have been canned goods involved. Fortunately I don’t have pets, so I probably ate stuff meant for people. I did bake once, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, for a friend.
