Welcome to Mama K’s Kitchen and How to Chop an Onion

Time to learn how to chop an onion

I enjoy cooking.  When I was a teenager, I bargained my way out of doing yard work by offering to do laundry and cook dinner.  My mom, who would much rather do yard work than housework, always agreed.  I learned some by watching my mom cook during the week, but I also felt comfortable in the kitchen from the time I was small.  To this day I feel like the kitchen is the heart of my home. Nothing makes me happier than having a family meal and seeing those I love around the table.

 Keeping it Simple in the Kitchen

While I love to cook, I prefer to keep things simple in the kitchen, especially when the calendar is full.  I’m not one for complicated recipes.  I’ve made them, and there are a few I repeat.  Mostly, I leave those recipes to others.  I cook delicious, easy to prepare food.  Just recently, a family member reminded me that “easy” is a relative term.  This particular family member struggles with chopping an onion.  She shared a picture of her struggle on social media, and I thought, “Sweetie, there’s a much easier way to do that.” I promised her a video of how to chop an onion.  I know there are many ways to do this, but this is the one that works the best for me.  Click here to watch the video.

 Changes are coming

For those who follow my blogging journey, you’ll start to notice a change in the subjects of my posts.  I want to share practical knowledge as well as talk about life.  The public posts will share the knowledge.  Newsletters to my email list will share thoughts about life.  The kitchen is one of my favorite places so it’s only natural to start there.  I know that learning how to chop an onion doesn’t change the world, but if it saves you time and burning eyes, it makes way for you to live a bit better and who doesn’t want more of that especially with the holiday season nearly upon us?

 Welcome to the heart of my home

A few years ago, a dear, friend I call the daughter of my heart nicknamed me Mama K.   Since we share a love of cooking, it seems only natural to call the heart of my home Mama K’s Kitchen.  I hope by visiting my kitchen in the virtual world, you’ll find more success and happier days in your own kitchen. Over the next several weeks, I’ll be posting about ways to make Thanksgiving and Christmas less stressful, recipes that are easy and delicious, and gift giving ideas that will save your holiday budget.  You can find several of the tips and recipes in my Happiest Holidays book available on Amazon.

 How can we make your kitchen a happier place?

For those who struggle in the kitchen, it would help to know what would help you most.  What do you struggle with?  What would you like to learn how to do?  I have over 40 years of experience in the kitchen and over twenty years cooking for a family.  I learned so much, and if I can save you time, money and frustration so you can enjoy your family more and stress less, I call that a huge success for both of us.  You can do this, and I am excited to help.  Comment below or better yet, sign up for the newsletter to get all the best information, and we can have fun in the kitchen.  Let’s do this!  As always, if you found this useful, please share.  Thanks for being you and have a great day.
