Revered TV queen Julie Gichuru surprised many when she admitted that she does not know how to make food. She went ahead to clarify that she is a terrible cook and that she only limits her cooking to her family.

Julie also praised her marriage by admitting that despite her lack of skills in the kitchen, her husband has never complained even once whenever she attempted to prepare his food. The twist though, is that she admits that she has been enjoying her husband’s choma and cooking.

Her post shares her experience with her husband as a terrible cook. Her touching story shows how she made a breakfast of omelette for her husband and he enjoyed it. To her that was a victory, showing that despite being married for 19 years, she never lost hope in being a good to her husband.

Here is her inspirational post:



I have developed a love for healthy food & even cooking. For those who are not aware, I am a terrible cook. Many years ago when I was at Capital FM, things were serious with Mr G, so I decided to come clean on all issues. "Honey, you need to know I can't cook." He laughed but I was dead serious, "I mean I REALLY can't cook." He just smiled & that was that, or so I thought. A few days later he came to my apartment with a bag of groceries then sat in the sitting room with a newspaper. "OK," I said to myself, "he's playing house & trying to test my kitchen skills. This is disastrous!" Not one to turn down a challenge for things that I care about, I took his cue. Into the kitchen I went & did my very best. I served the meal & he seemed brave enough to ignore any risks of eating the frothy, ominous looking chicken ramen I placed before us. "I'm starving," he said enthusiastically & took a spoonful. I watched keenly. He chewed, swallowed & a few seconds later looked up at me & asked, "Can I take you out for dinner?" ???????????? In close to 19 years together, not once has he complained while I have enjoyed his choma & more. I want to make something he will truly enjoy. I have a new recipe for a super-fabulous omelette. Tested it on my eldest son & when he asked me if I could make him another one I knew it was a winner! I told hubby I was making his breakfast today. He smiled cautiously & said, "Great! But does anyone have the number of the closest hospital?" My little one burst into laughter. Very funny, NOT, I thought. ???? Undeterred I make the omelette, I add sautéed mixed vegetables on the side & lightly fried sliced tomatoes. He takes the first bite, then the second, and in a few minutes he has cleared the plate. Then he asks, "Can you please make me another one?" YES! Victory! I smell VICTORY!!! I want to jump up and down but contain myself. "So, did you like it?" I ask calmly. "Yes, it was very good!" he responds enthusiastically, then he adds, "I'm just waiting to see if I change colour." Yeah. Funny Guy. ???? In moments the second one was all gone with just a couple of slices of tomato left. I feel incredibly accomplished now! Life is a journey ????????????????
