Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

In today’s episode, you’ll learn about how to rethink cooking at home so that you actually like it more than you might expect.

It can get really challenging in the kitchen in midlife. The transitions later in life really affect your kitchen. You may be dealing with empty nest, suddenly living alone and being divorced and all of these transitions will make your “normal” routines in the kitchen really different.

It can feel like a lot to cope with and anticipate many of these changes. And, it can be really frustrating when you can’t solve this problem with ease.

My guest, Christine Pittman is the Senior Editor and Owner of The Cookful and of COOKtheSTORY and of the podcast Time Management Insider. Her sites reach over 2 million readers per month; she’s constantly writing, taking pictures, editing, recording, interviewing, managing contributors, and, oh yeah, cooking!

Christine is a mom of two. She’s always busy creating recipes that take less time in the kitchen, giving you more time at the table. She’s also the author of The All New Chicken Cookbook + 40 more cookbooks. Her love for cooking started early, always watching and listening to her mother and grandmother in the kitchen.

10 years ago while on maternity leave, Christine started a hobby food blog and now her easy and delicious recipes reach millions of readers.

I know you’re going to get a lot of great ideas and tips from this episode.
