The Proud Cook is never Bored

If all music sounded the same it would become uninspiring and boring. We can end up feeling the same way about cooking when we only rely on one or two lackluster dishes every week.

The trick to overcoming cooking boredom is to step out of your comfort zone and prepare a variety of dishes. The reason is, variety offers new challenges. We all know accomplishing a new challenge generates confidence and a sense of pride. When you are proud of what you do it forms good feelings inside which inspires you to do it again. Conversely when you’re not proud of what you’ve accomplished the task becomes boring and will be avoided.

Why not take a few minutes to search out a few new exciting recipes. Make sure they fit your level of cooking yet offer enough challenge to leave you feeling proud when you take that first bite!
