Just for the record, I want to make it clear that I know my way around a kitchen. For years I baked, I stewed, I slow-cooked, I pressure-cooked. I did it all. At one point in my first marriage, I even baked ALL our bread--and my husband took sandwiches made with said bread with him to work in his lunch bag everyday.
Fast forward a few years; the boys are men and have families of their own. I am now retired. While I still occasionally have been known to whip up a great meal, times have changed. That was then; this is now.
