My celebrated Cookfulness 12 Steps To The Happy Stuff is everything YOU need to not just want to cook, but absolutely love to cook, every single day!

I understand the many and varied barriers that cooking and the kitchen can throw in your way, leading you to say "No, I can't cook, I won't cook, I hate cooking!"

I understand that no 2 days are ever the same.  I understand how pressures on your mental health can directly affect your physical health, and physical your mental health each pulling the other down. 

I do though understand just how powerful the sheer joy of cooking can be when you have the combination to help you unpick the lock, unbolt the door, remove the blockades and storm the kitchen!

I know cooking has helped changed my life and my family's lives for the better and I really want to help you find that too!
