Here is the video of my Aha! Moment with Mutual of Omaha.
I had a lot of fun filming this video. The crew was terrific. I gave them a pan of solar cooked brownies. I hope they enjoyed them.
My name is Merry and this is my Aha! moment.
I started solar cooking about six years ago. When I first started cooking, I made a small solar oven and I cooked hot dogs and chili and so I thought that’s pretty cool, that you can put something out in the solar oven and you can just let it sit there and it will heat and you can eat it.
When I baked the peach pie, it was a beautiful peach pie. It was just perfect. You could smell it cooking and it came out of the oven just like it came of your regular oven. And that’s when I went “Aha! You really can cook in a solar oven” and it really does work.
So I write a blog called “Sunshine On My Shoulder” and that’s where I teach people about solar cooking. I promote solar cooking. I develop recipes for solar cooking.
I’m realizing I’m really more concerned about the environment than I ever thought about and that I’m more concerned about solar power than I ever realized I was concerned about. Now I want everything to be solar.
I never imagined I’d be writing a blog about solar cooking. It was just something that never would have crossed my mind. If you have an idea, go for it. Start small like I did. Give it a try. You never know where it’s going to go you never know what’s gonna lead to.
