Hate Being In The Kitchen? Here's How To Find New Love For It

 Being in the kitchen can get boring after a while, can’t it? After all there’s only so much cooking you can do before you run out of enthusiasm for taste and flavor, and even just the thought of standing over the stove again in there can make your feet hurt. 

But the kitchen is such a lovely room in the home, especially if you’ve just had it renovated! It’s where you feed your family, and you’ve had a lot of laughs in there over the years, and cooking can be such a hearty and beneficial activity for the whole family. And because of this, we’ve listed some ideas below to help you find new love for getting back in there!

Host Some Dinner Parties

Dinner parties are always a lot of fun! So, to encourage a new love for your kitchen, why not host a few more in there? If you’ve got a kitchen island and some bar stools, or room to move the dining table in, this is a great way to make cooking your hobby again. 

Invite the guests over early so they can take part in the cooking, and you can stand around with glasses in your hands whilst having a laugh! Put some music on, dance around, and make sure there’s a lit candle or two on display as well. 

Try Out Some New Recipes

New recipes can be exciting, and trying out dishes you’ve never been quite comfortable cooking in the past is a great way to boost your love of being in the kitchen. Think of it all as a big experiment - who cares about the outcome, you’re having fun! 

So cook up a storm with new recipes like swedish meatballs with frozen meatballs - all you need to do is dig out your freezer a little and see what’s left in there. Use up the food you have, make something new, and see if you manage to catch a bit more cooking fever whilst you’re at it. 

Get Others to Pitch in!

Maybe your hatred of the cooking comes from all the cleaning up you have to do? Don’t worry, we can do something about this as well - just get someone else to do it! Of course it’s not always as simple as that, but if you’ve got kids and they don’t really do much, you can always get them to start taking up chores to help around the house. 

It’s good practice for them, if nothing else. So make sure they’re loading the dishwasher, or washing up after you’ve cooked up a storm. Show them how to get on, and then sit down and relax - you’ve earned this! If you need to entice them to get involved, make sure there’s some music on as they go or turn it into a game. 

Being in the kitchen doesn’t have to be boring and tiring. Have a bit more fun in there and you’ll soon love cooking for the family again.
