Stick around and become part of our fun and knowledgeable cooking family. We just might become addictive. We're glad you've found us.
I used to sew alot more than I do now - for one thing my children are getting older and they are not as intersted in the kind of clothes that I could make. But if my girls need a dressm they know that it will be a home made one.
The major reson is tha I developed carpel tunnel syndrone. I had the surgery to correct it last sunmmer and it didn't work well leaving my right hand mostly numb and the idea of threading needles almost impossible. I still can sew, but it is much harder than it used to be.
That is why I cook now! I have so many things that make kitchen life easier that cooking has replaced sewing in my hobbies (not to mention it is much cheaper to cook a meal than to make a dress)
