I have to share something that happened on our very FIRST call together.
Maureen, a stressed out mom, said she bought an air fryer years ago because she “isn’t good at cooking” and her husband was doing the cooking at the time. But now he’s going to school and working, so the cooking is falling on her shoulders. She joined our community to learn how to make better meals for her family.
The most beautiful thing happened as we started our first cooking online cooking class.
After we got through the prep work and put the food in our air fryers, we chatted as some people cleaned their kitchen, others asked questions about their air fryers, and some shared their experiences with air fryers.
Sweet Maureen, asked questions about her machine and all the different trays she has, plus explained her situation. A couple of kids were underfoot and her husband was shortly leaving for work.
We all got so invested in her success that the people cleaning their kitchens stopped so they could lean in and listen, and I forgot to set a shake reminder on my air fryer.
But it didn’t matter.
Because when our meals were ready and Maureen’s family tested her Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry, we held our collective breath to hear the results.
They loved it!!!
We clapped and cheered and took a group photo together.
That’s what the “Cooking with Cathy Community” is all about.
It’s not about me. It’s about using the tools and technology we have to support, cheer for, and empower each other to be better cooks and share a moment that’s bigger than ingredients, shopping lists, times and temperatures. Those details are important, but not nearly as rewarded as seeing a teenager tell his mom that she did a good job.
