My schedule keeps me so busy that by the time I get home I am not motivated to cook, but I love to cook. I love experimenting with different flavors and color. Nothing makes me happier than hearing the comments from my husband and daughters and seeing them smile and their eyes light up! Just because of my cooking! However, by the time I've worked the entire day, picked the children up, drop them to their various activities, attend one meeting or the other, then pick the children up again, I am so tired, that I lack motivation to cook. If I had more time, I would be more motivated to cook. I always try to cook healthy whenever I cook!

Eating wouldn't be an issue if the small fry in the house would just eat what is being served instead of complaining about it or having two nibbles and trying to run off. the issues of a house with a 6 year old and a 2 year old.

I now live alone. I am diabetic and a stroke survivor, so it's not as much fun to cook as it used to be. But it helps to have somewhere to look for appropriate recipes.

My biggest challenge is having enough energy and not falling. I try to do most of the cutting and chopping and any prep work at the island on a stool.
My health has taken the fun out of cooking and baking.

Both of my sons play football and sometimes we don't get home until 8 o'clock at night, and I have to get up for work at 4:15am, so it's challenging to come up with something for dinner. Alot of times we get subs or pizza, but this is not healthly, so I just to remember to prepare crock pot recipes.

SUBSTUTIONS FOR ITEMS I DON'T HAVE, i.e.WINES, LIQUORS, HERBS

On the days I plan my meals, motivation is not a problem. But sometimes I feel myself lacking the motivation to carry out the plan. Sometimes, my hunger is greater than the time needed to make the meal. In those cases, a quick salad and carry out as much as the plan as possible!

cooking for one is a big problem when you are used to cooking for a family. Don't feel like cooking just for one person Me.

eating too much dinner

The most difficult part of dinner for myself and my husband is figuring out how to have fewer calories for me and more for my husband. I have one of those husbands that could eat meat and fast food every day and gain no weight, whereas I look at something unhealthy and gain weight.
