I love to cook. So cooking makes me feel happy. It also gives me a feeling of accomplishment when someone enjoys what I have made. Cooking is a craft. When I find a recipe i make it the way the recipe says but while I am eating it I come up with my own touches for next time.

I feel annoyed. Even now, just thinking about it. :?

If I have enough time, I love it. I hate cooking when I’m hungry and in a rush.

My mood consistently changes: if cooking something I'm excited to eat, I love it; if otherwise, Ugh!! 😃

I enjoy cooking. I like every step. I used to think it was a chore, but when you have your recipes memorized instead of always looking them up you cut the cooking time in a fourth, so it's much easier and faster. It doesn't seem like a chore when it doesn't take so long.

Well,at first i get so happy to be in the kitchen,but along the line i get scary thoughts like;what if i overcook it?or undercook it?did i add more than required spice?what if they dont like it?is this the right texture?And most times,i end up doing something wrong. it just seems complicated

Well, I get really excited when I start cooking. It brings out the creative genius in me. My only worry, however, is that whoever it is presented to, may not enjoy it.

I love to cook. I enjoy trying new recipes, putting on my own twist on old favorites, and preparing yummy stuff for my family. It does my heart good to hear them say "mmmm, the whole house smells so good!"

I am more of a savory winter/fall sort of cook. I need to work more on my summer fare repertoire. I am building my list of quick, healthy, yummy summer favorites using Pintrest as we speak.

I think I may even give baking a go this fall when the weather is more conducive to using the oven and I feel more comfortable giving baking a try. I once heard a famous TV host and chef say one is either a good cook or a good baker but one cannot be both. My Great Aunt (rest her soul) would say poppy cock! Time to gather those baking recipes too.

Thanks for the topic!

I love to read all about cooking, either magazine or cookbook. I spend myself mostly of browsing about baking bread and pastries, coz on the other hand I would love them to copy the recipe and provide it to my son and to beloved husband.

I hope someday i to create more tasty and yummy food.

I miss to go back to India...Miss my husband.... :cry: :|
