There’s nothing quite like a simple Saturday or a lazy Sunday. The possibilities on an unscheduled day are endless. And out of all the activities you could do, we’re going to suggest you take time to cook. When you commit to spending all day in the kitchen, you can impress yourself by navigating and conquering some of the most exciting and intricate recipes.
The key to all-day cooking is in the prep. Take time to set yourself up for success by collecting all of your ingredients together. Measure them out into bowls – just like you see on cooking shows! Take the time to pause or rest between steps. Lavish in cleaning up after each mixing, measuring or transferring.
Think of your multi-hour cooking extravaganza as a time for mindful meditation. Take in all the smells, the sensations and actions as you progress in these intricate recipes. You’ll feel centered, calm and satisfied at the end of your culinary marathon.
