Anyone that knows me knows I don’t cook. I just don’t like it but I know my way around the kitchen. As my multiple sclerosis worsened cooking became even more difficult. I have limited time I can stand on my feet, over a stove or cook top. I also have limited time I can cut and chop before my hands fatigue. Many times I will prepare a dish only to not be able to eat because my hands literally cannot hold a utensil. I’ve now switched, when I can, to plastic utensils which are lighter. With that being said, the recipes I look for need to be simple. I look for things I can chop easily or use my mini food processor or even the large one to cut what needs to be cut. Yesterday I made pasta with sauce, not from a jar, for the first time. It was really, really good and fairly easy. I get all my recipes from the Forks ver Knives App or from their magazine, Facebook page or website. Forks over Knives is all plant-based vegan eating. I must admit when I started this blog I never thought I’d be sharing recipes on it but I must say the ones I’ve shared I’ve done because the food was really good. Doesn’t take much to surprise me. On this Thursday snowy day in New York, I thought I’d share..
