HI Cookery is 13!

Ah…the number 13 is considered unlucky. And perhaps it reflects our past year when it was Highlander’s turn to deal his own health issues (which required hospitalization and surgeries—yes, plural). We also got mild COVID last fall, though we have been vaxxed and boosted. What a stressful time yet we are trying to do what we can to still keep living life to the fullest!

Cooking has been a wonderful distraction from the stress. Trying new recipes and sharing them have been quite therapeutic mentally and physically. We reiterate that this little blog has never ever been for fame and fortune. We still get a few offers to be featured on other media and be monetized through affiliations. No, thank you! We are fine doing our own thing—and appreciate the unsolicited validation from our supporters. Yes, thank you!

This year, we added under our Theme Menus tab a section for “Oodles of Noodles”. In some cultures, noodles symbolize longevity. As we are getting older now and facing all the age-related issues, we pray for many more happy and healthy years ahead. Just us reaching our senior years is a blessing.

And HI Cookery turning 13 is…lucky!

Tapadh leat! Mahalo! Thanks!

Highlander and Islander
