Prasadam: Consciousness behind Cooking

                                                                  Q. When I cook in the morning, I think of what my kids like or my husband likes and then cook for Krishna. I feel that I am pretending here. I want to do it for Krishna, but I am cooking what my husband likes. On the other hand, if I think only about cooking for Krishna and not for the family, I feel that I am betraying them. Since I have a relationship with my husband, I want to cook for him with love. Because I am full of dirt, its difficult for me to understand and apply the principle.  Please help me understand what I should be doing here to please Krishna.

                                                                  The items which your husand likes are all items which Krishna also likes, correct? Meaning...they are all offerable sattvik items.

                                                                  Q. I have one query about prasadam. Prasadam is transcendental and hence free from karmic reactions. But it is said that the consciousness of the cook goes into the prasadam and it effects the consumer of prasadam with that consciousness. I have seen devotees who take prasadam which is cooked by brahmana-initiated devotees only and not by any other, because it may affect their spiritual consciousness.
