Cooking is creativity: become the artist of your kitchen.

There’s a kind of gratitude that’s stirred up when you prepare meals at home (for yourself or loved ones) with your own hands. Enjoying the gift of being served is sweet too, whether at a deli, restaurant, street food stall or friend’s house. Still, I’m also thankful for moments spent cooking, being involved in the preparation process, deciding on the best combination of flavours, learning how to use appliances, and decorating the plate like a canvas of colour. The meal is the bonus.

A kitchen can be a quiet space and a dance floor. The beautiful thing is, you can design the space, and set the tone to inspire your cooking journey.

 

Spices, flavours, aromas, colours! 

You don’t need all the ingredients in the world to start. Be innovative, creative, patient, and proactive. Cooking is one of the ways we show love.  It’s an expression of nurturing and a reminder of provision.

There are moments when we might not be in the ‘mood’ to start the pot, but with a little gratitude for what we’ve got, we’ll be pleasantly surprised at the meals that can manifest by the fruit of our hands when we give it a shot.

Hi there, I'm indra Denys , writing you from Barbados.

Balancing housework with business tasks is an interesting change of tempo I'm dancing to. On a quest to grow more grateful each day. As a teen I almost gave up on life; now as a woman saved by grace, I'm living joyfully with purpose, encouraging others to enjoy moments of refreshment daily and celebrating sisters who shine through their gifts with grace right here on 'Joy within' blog through guest posts and features. You'll also see pics of creation from nature walks along the way. Thanks for joining the journey, remember to follow the blog for firsthand updates on new posts, podcast episodes and events.
