Mostly I am bored, so I put on some music or call some company. Then I enjoy it.

Cooking makes me so stressed! I'm always afraid I"m going to screw it up. I only can enjoy it once I'm done and it's time to eat!

Cooking is a hobby for me. Life is not complete for me without cooking, I do not attach emotions to cooking, it comes naturally.

If there is no time restriction I feel quite happy to cook or bake, but if I'm in a hurry I usually just go through motions and try to be as efficient as possible.

For me, cooking is therapeutic. It's a science and an art that just soothes the soul.

Cooking is something I haven't tried yet. Being a teenager my mom doesn't really allow me to do anything in the "kitchen". Well she has her concerns as well because I can't leave the kitchen without a small burn :lol2: . But then again who knows I might be able to whip up something to eat when I'll alone.

When I'm cooking and or baking I'm in a zone, I feel relieved. When I'm upset or frustrated, or just depressed is when I pour my heart out in whatever I cook or bake. So yes you can put your emotions in what you cook or bake and I love it.

I usually try to avoid cooking, but it can be really fun with someone else. I especially like cooking when it's a group of friends, then you can chat while you do it and you have help. Makes the time go by faster.

My passion is cooking. Sometimes I may get creative at 2:00 AM and finish at 4:00 AM. As a matter of fact, I am making a chicken stock right now (2:41 PM 2/25/18). My cooking style is eclectic, but my background is in classical french cuisine.

I get joy from cooking, perhaps it's because I have a very appreciative family to enjoy it or because we are always entertaining. I absolutely love it .

Cooking to me is more of passion and same time acts like a therapy to me.
When I have some issues bothering me getting into the kitchen and preparing sweet meals, relaxes me. I love my kitchen 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

I feel great while cooking especially when we have people to host.Cooking gives the drive to want to try out a new recipe.
