I have recently discovered the joy of cooking.
Yes I discovered that cookbook by Julia Child, but I also discovered the feeling itself.
To be honest, I don’t care for many of her recipes, but what I do love is her unabashed love of the culinary arts. Julia Child taught me that every meal is an opportunity to do something amazing. One meal might not change the world, but it could change someone’s world! Since I was spending so much extra time in the kitchen, my husband encouraged me by offering to do some renovations on it. I wasn’t sure what an HVAC tech could do for our kitchen, but it turns out he could do a lot! My husband is not good in the kitchen, but he is an ace when it comes to furnaces, air conditioners, and ventilation systems. Thanks to him, I learned about how much the air quality in the kitchen can impact the cooking process, not to mention the smell of the home itself. Kitchen ventilation, usually a range hood over the stove, uses a massive fan and an exhaust duct to pull all the heat, humidity, and odor from your kitchen and release it outside. After my husband worked his HVAC magic, I could cook a huge batch of liver and onions and you couldn’t even smell it in the living room! Along with better air quality while I cook, his upgrades also installed two new air vents, so that I stay perfectly cool and comfy all the time I am in the kitchen.
