What? Recipes on a divorce website? I know it seems a little strange, but I’m equally passionate about cooking as I am about helping people through divorce. When I started Lemonade Divorce, my good friend Stephen Elbert emailed to ask why no recipes are included in my website, such as my “famous chocolate cake or oatmeal cookies or homemade granola.”
He was half joking, but this got me thinking: What do I do with my kids when I have some free time? We cook together, we bake together. It’s a great way to bond and we enjoy eating the final product. Food is nurturing, and during divorce, you and your kids definitely will need some nurturing. So I’m posting fun and delicious recipes you can do with your kids or for your kids on those Friday nights when you find yourself at home. I will keep adding new recipes to create a good selection.
And I have another reason for doing this: I know that one day, once your broken heart has mended, you’ll be dating again. . . so I plan to include some recipes for wooing a new mate. (My husband remembers sitting at my tiny kitchen table in Oakland in 1997, eating homemade jam and bread. He said that’s when he knew it was love.) This tip is for all you guys out there too. There’s nothing sexier than a man who can cook.
There is life during and after divorce, so get cooking and have some fun!
