If you hadn’t noticed, it’s been three weeks since I abruptly deleted all of the social media apps from my phone and subsequently logged out on my computer and desktop. I’m such a fragile creature and I tend to compare myself so often to other people. It didn’t make me sad to see everyone else being happy but I could feel it begin to and I have been having such good moods lately and I didn’t want to spoil that.
Don’t get me wrong, I love, LOVE seeing what’s happening and all of your lives. I mean, BOY are they lovely! But mine is lovely too and I fail to see that sometimes. So, I want to live and appreciate my lovely life right now. You understand, right?
This last bit of winter has been an intense one! We’ve been slammed with unexpected snow and it has meant more time stuck inside creating and enjoying one another’s company. I have especially loved cooking and I was so blessed to be given the chance to try this cozy little cookbook, The Cottage Kitchen.
I will admit, that I was a bit intimidated by some of the recipes. I’m a simple girl and some of the recipes seemed more posh than what I would consider cozy but once I stepped out of my comfort zone, I managed to create new food experiences that helped me make the best of our snow days and the time I had with friends and family during this hiatus. I find it so odd that largely, English cooking is mocked because honestly, from my experience, the food seems so diverse and it always makes me feel at home. I love how this cookbook provides recipes that pushes you to get your hands dirty so that you create food that is undeniably homemade. And there is something soul-warming about serving your loved ones something made with care and heart. If you’re looking for comfort that it both conventional and a bit fancy, I highly recommend this cookbook by Marte Marie Forsberg.
I hope you all are doing well. If I haven’t checked in on you, I hope you understand. If you would like to reach me, just send me a message using my contact page. Or email me if you have it.
Remember, I love you too.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
