Usually, I cook my food. It's healthy, cost-effective and tasty. But I go out once in a while. It's a break from cooking every day.

I love to cook for myself but I love to eat baked sweets by other people, not me- possibly because they are more work to make haha

I prefer homemade food over restaurant food. But I have 0 interest in cooking, so I rather someone cooked for me in my house.

I love homemade food but I'm a terrible cook myself. On days that I'm at home by myself, I prefer ordering in because I can't cook to save my life!

No matter how hard I try, I don't think I can ever top a restaurant or takeout meal. Although, as a University student, I can't afford to eat out every single day so homecooking it is.

I prefer cooking my own food, but that could be because I have social anxiety and I cant enjoy the food when I'm fighting off a panic.

I love cooking as this gives me a chance to prepare what I crave. When I am on the move, a restaurant is a good place to have a good meal. The problem comes in when the food may have been carelessly prepared. I at times end up regretting why I had the meal the in the first place. When the meal is as delicious as it looks, I obtain a feeling of satisfaction and appreciation.

There are definitely perks to going to a restaurant - no washing up probably being the main one! But it's also quite expensive and takes a lot longer than just making something at home. Also, although some restaurants are quite healthy, others are less healthy than what I would make at home.
Mostly I cook my own meals at home but every so often a restaurant is a nice treat, especially for occasions such as Birthdays.

I love to cook. My husband loves my cooking too. While sometimes going out is nice, I get tired of eating out after a while. Nothing can beat a homemade meal in my opinion.

I love to eat out, and when my husband and I were both working, we ate out a lot. I like not having to cook and especially not having to clean up! However, the food had better be as good as or better than my own cooking, or I will not go back to that restaurant! And now that we are retired, we don’t spend as much money, so I cook most of our meals at home. I enjoy cooking, but I don’t want to have to do it all the time.

While cooking at home helps me save more money, I prefer eating out. No dishes to clean!

It depends on the situation. Generally speaking, I prefer to cook my own food because I want to know exactly what I'm eating.
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Depends. There are certain foods I like cooked in very particular ways... and sometimes those ways are the ways they are cooked in a specific restaurant.

Like I love crab legs, but I make a certain lemon butter sauce to dip into that makes regular butter pale in comparison.
