If I could be GREAT at anything…
I’m in the final stretch of my maternity leave and getting pretty emotional. I’m having a blast and shared the top seven things I’m going to miss on my BabyCenter blog.
One of my goals during this time was to learn some new recipes and I haven’t quite nailed that aspiration yet. My next prompt for 30 Things my kids should know about me asked what I wish I could be great at. And this immediately came to mind.
If I could be great at anything I’d love it to be cooking. I wish I could just walk in the kitchen and whip up something delicious. I’d love to win awards for my marvelous dishes, and have people ask for my recipes. I am blessed with several talents, but when it comes to cooking, I can’t seem to find the motivation I need to learn to enjoy it and become good. It’s slowly becoming bearable, but not a talent. However, I am starting to enjoy baking. I like that it’s exact, and that the ingredients are all fairly similar from recipe to recipe. Maybe cooking will come around for me too.
And just throwing it out there… I wish I was an awesome singer too.
This was Day 17 of the installment of 30 Things my kids should know about me.

I had the exact same wish. My husband is great at cooking. I am not sadly. But I’m a decent baker so I guess that is something.
hey, so I read this today and thought you would really like to read it (I’m remembering your posts about natural hair). Love to you and your bebes! http://blackgirllonghair.com/2013/05/my-boss-criticized-my-natural-hair-in-public/
i would be awesome at cooking too..im having so much with these prompts…thanks for the idea!!
I always say when I get rich I’m gonna hire a chef, cuz I just don’t do well “whipping something up” in the kitchen. Haha, I agree with you – I’ve been working on my cooking until it has become a “bearable” task. It’s just not something I’m motivated to do – glad to hear not everyone is a pinterest-worthy master chef in the kitchen. 🙂
