"I am an organized person, but I am intimidated by cooking and especially for cooking for my family for the holidays. I was ready to get over my fear and try something new, so I took what I learned here and applied it. It wasn’t hard at all - it just took a little bit of planning at the beginning, and everything went smooth, and I actually put hot food on the table and didn’t feel exhausted afterward!"
