Cooking hasn’t always come naturally to me. But when I dropped the meal plan from my online college profile, that didn’t really matter anymore. I needed to eat something edible and as well tasty. So my determination in the kitchen began my sophomore year of college. I began experimenting with different seasoning for my baked meats and steamed vegetables. (I know, I was surprised I even tried my hardest to not survive off of ramen. It’s so cheap! 😥)

As a matured and began to venture out into different eating styles (pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan, sugar-free, etc), I had to keep my mind and my stomach open-minded. Fast-forward to the adult world, the working world. I became so consumed by my teaching responsibilities that I barely had any room in my life use any of my creative juices for my personal life.

As a result of my lack of free-time, I became lazy in the kitchen. I wished so badly to have the time to cook again, so much so that not cooking became a stressor. The more I thought about how tired I was after work and grabbing quick meals, the more I became disappointed in myself which then led me to become more depressed. At the end of my first year of teaching, I vowed that I would manage my work-life better so that I could improve my parts of my personal life, i.e. cooking.

Now that I’m well into my 2nd year of teaching and have held up my promise to myself, I have put in much consideration into the products I put inside of my body.  How my food taste is no longer good enough for me. It is more important to know the kinds of food I place into my body. Now, my goal is to feel better physically and mentally.  And I know that I can do that by the activities I perform and the food I consume.

Sadly, I’ve realized the hard way that my strengths do not lie in spontaneous meals. My dishes come out better when I have a recipe to use. To compensate, I began with mal kit deliveries, I’ve tried Blue Apron, Home Chef, and Hello Fresh. By far, Home Chef has been my most favorite for the choice of meals. There hadn’t been one meal in which I didn’t like. The only reason I stopped was my last box had been taken from in front of my apartment door.

After I literally cried over this theft,  I chose to buy a cookbook. I didn’t think I would like them as much as I big but I’m in love with cookbooks. My first cookbook was Thug Kitchen. Regardless of the meal quality( Most of which are featured on this blog), their cookbook is sold in blackface. I’ll most likely do a post or video of my whole opinion at another time. You’re probably wondering what I’ll use next. You’ll have to wait and see!

There are many financial institutions who seek to have all charges and liens paid by the next buyer. On the other hand, depending on specific programs, restrictions, and state guidelines there may be several loans that aren’t easily settled through the shift of financial products. Therefore, the responsibility still falls on the debtor that has acquired his or her property in foreclosure process. Thank you for sharing your opinions on this website.
