The Joy Of Trying New Cooking Techniques

If you love eating healthy food, and by healthy we don’t necessarily mean just salads and vegetables, then you will love the idea of health homemade food that is quick and easy. Unfortunately in this day and age, it has become really hard to provide home cooked family meals because we are all so busy working and looking after the home, but if you understand basic food preparation and cooking techniques, food preparation and meal creation will be much quicker and easier.

When it comes to feeding our loved ones, we just want what’s best for them and thats why we can’t sacrifice quality for time in family meals. There is no need for it, if you just look for new, faster ways to prepare meals that they already love, and then you’ll discover the joy of trying out cooking techniques that will leave you with some time to rest.

For example, there are meals that you would normally prepare in a pan, like a chicken breast wrapped in bacon, but you can switch from frying it to oven cooking it, that means that you don’t have to be by the pan controlling the process, and also the whole meal will be healthier. Simple cooking techniques, like this one can make a lot of difference to your food experience.

There is always something new to try in the kitchen, new recipe ideas that you can incorporate to your normal repertoire, because let’s face it, once we are comfortable with recipes we know and love, our tables we’ll see the same meals over and over again. This makes cooking a tedious process, and meal times boring.

You can regain your love for cooking, or discover it for the first time, by trying recipe ideas that not only look delicious, but that most importantly, don’t require crazy cooking techniques. Unless, of course, that you find yourself with some time in your hands to give them a go.

You should feel proud of yourself if you are cooking family meals, it takes love to do it right, and when you begin to love it, it wont be a chore to create delicious food that will satisfy the whole family and that everyone will enjoy. Practice makes perfect when it comes to new, healthy cooking techniques, so if you dont succeed on the first attempt, keep trying and youll get there in the end.

Your Film Guide to Healthy Relationships – Want a Recipe For Great Cooking and Loving?

Want real health care reform? Start cooking real food and making real love. That’s a healthy love tip I’ve often told our online community. Now you have a film guide to reveal recipes for hearty meals and happy marriages. You’ll be craving both as you experience the delicious film, Julie and Julia.

It’s the story of two lost women who find their professional purpose through food and passionate fulfillment in marriage. This film celebrates the best in happy marriages with lasting love. It’s inspired by true love stories of two couples.

The best known couple, based on Chef Julia Child and her diplomat husband, Paul Child, had enjoyed five decades of great cooking and loving in France and America until death parted them in their 90s. They are brought to life with endearing wit and charm by Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci.

The second couple is based on a young newlywed (Amy Adams) in New York who blogs her way through the preparation of 524 of Julia’s French recipes in 365 days and through common hurdles of making an emotional home in a new marriage to a supportive husband.

These two love stories are interwoven into a graceful tapestry by the film’s writer and director, Nora Ephron. She’s reported to be enjoying a second marriage of 22 years, after suffering through a betrayal while she was pregnant by her first husband, the journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame.

Ms. Ephron has survived and thrived after that marriage melodrama, and there’s no hint of it in her film portrait of these two marriages. She gives us an authentic portrayal of pleasures and passion in a mid-life marriage. A delightful example is when Julia and Paul Childs sneak home from cooking school and the American Embassy in Paris for a little lunch and some afternoon delight.

When Julia learns her newly-married sister is pregnant with her first baby in her 40s, we sense sadness that the Childs weren’t able to have children in an era before infertility intervention.

When we learn that Julia was a 40 year old virgin when she married Paul, it tugs at your heart when she asks him, “What if you didn’t fall in love with me?”

“But I did,” Paul said tenderly. And then he showed his love in wonderful ways — as they stood by each other, handled challenges and sparked chemistry as a couple. Not in a sappy, trite way. But with savvy joy that can be experienced in any mutually-supportive marriage. If you seek a role model, Julia and Paul can be your love guide.

What about the blogger and her husband?

Julie Powell’s blogging adventure had connected her to online readers (including her mother) while she reported on the results of a preparing a Julia Child recipe each day.

At one point, Julie asked her readers if anyone’s out there paying attention to her. Having blogged for a year, I’ve often wondered that myself. This is a tender nudge for you to start a dialogue and make a meaningful connection with people you’re getting to know online.

After month’s of Julie’s blogging had stolen her focus and energy from her husband, she had to decide whether to change her priorities to save their relationship. It’s an authentic love test that most couples face in an enduring relationship. The love lessons they learn from this experience will make you question how your choices and priorities affect your relationship.

Can you recall any recent Hollywood films that portray the emotional depth and enduring passion in a happy marriage?

I can’t. So there’s another reason I’m recommending that you go to the theater and savor this tasty treat. You’ll also send Hollywood a message of support to keep making glorious, grownup love stories.

I hope you’ll see this film as a love guide to spark up your relationship.
