Learning to cook

I still remember the very first day when I was put in the kitchen at school and cooking lessons had started for real. I think it was my baptism to the stove and not having been able to see too much at that time enabled me to conjure up all kinds of imaginations of the poor old big bad stove.

Truth be told, almost all of these imaginings turned out to be very false. The stove was not as bad as I had imagined it would be. The pots and pans were quite harmless. The gas flame was not as huge as I had imagined and the heat was not nearly as hot as I had first thought it to be.

Slowly but surely I became comfortable with the kitchen and its various objects, implements, and everything else and today I simply enjoy cooking. I may not be able to see what I am cooking or stirring but that's quite okay.

I am very comfortable interacting with my pots and pans. I have absolutely no difficulty controlling my heat and maneuvering my pots and sauce pans, and hot pots and dishes are not a problem for me.

My stove top is like second nature to me and my microwave and toaster oven are like parts of my extended arms.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
