When my friend Suzanne called to ask if she could cook over here while her kitchen was being torn up, I was thrilled. After all, I had blogged in the fall about how great it was to cook in my friends’ kitchens while ours was being remodeled. It was the night before her son’s birthday, and he’d requested Pumpkin Cupcakes. Their family cooking team came over, and the whole house soon filled with a spicy pumpkiny delicious smell. We tasted one cupcake together (just to make sure it was ok) and the rest went to school with him the next day.
If you have a friend whose oven is broken, whose fridge is being replaced, or who otherwise doesn’t have her kitchen all together, think of it as a great reason to invite her over to yours to cook.
