have someone else cook for you? I love to cook but there are times I do like someone else to cook for me. Like tonight my friends came over and I didn't want to cook a big meal or anything so my friend made pizza...It was so nice not cooking...It's been awhile since I had a break of cooking..But tomorrow I am making a ham dinner for all of us....It was just nice to get that break...How do you feel about cooking???

I totally like cooking! Its a great hobby and a nice thing to do for yourself and for others! The hobby part of it is especially great! It helps me forget about troubles in life (barely any) and about troubles at large. It just helps me let it all go. Plus I can cook a variety of things and learn other dishes quick, so its never boring.

Hi there. I love to cook, and then there are days, when my husband loves to cook or children... In our house everyone loves to cook, so we are not short of cooks and everyone gets to have the break we all need from passionately slaving over the stove lol...

I enjoy cooking. I was a culinary arts major at one point in time because I liked to cook. I also only have to cook for myself so it's not like it's a big hassle or anything. I cooked my parents dinner for their anniversary this past year. I belong to a cooking club where we all cook for a group (different meals within the theme) once a month. I enjoy when I get to cook for a few people once in a while.

my spouse cooks for me and the kids all the time. i am not a good cook.everyday its the same story. i think that is the best thing that can happen to us. wait for the food and she cooks whatever i want to eat to. she is very fond of me and the kids and she is also very health conscious. that is another eason nowadays why she cooks.she is very cooperative in this matter.

I love to cook. It is always more fun when my husband and I cook together though. Sometimes cooking is a nice distraction for me though. My husband will take care of the baby while I cook and I can just let my mind wander while I am in the kitchen. It almost becomes a break for me. I don't mind someone else doing the cooking if we are going out to dinner. But nobody but me or my husband cook in my home.

I like proper cooking. Making meals from scratch and adding my own touch to it. I also like to experiment with recipes. I like other people to cook for me sometimes too. My partner makes quite nice curries! If it's cooking like just putting a couple of frozen things in the oven and sticking something in a pan, I find that boring and really only do it because it's necessary. I think at home, I prefer to cook myself but I don't complain if someone else wants to do it!

i personally enjoy cooking, but we all live in a time where everything moves so fast , you barely have time for yourself, i usually start cooking around 8:00p.m by 9:00p.m the meal should be ready, anything that takes me more than 15 minutes to prepare it´s just not worth it, cooking time it can take up to 30 minutes.

I love to cook. The only way I can have someone else cook for me is when I am not there. I am a bit of a snob when it comes to cooking. I even have to clean up I like things to be my way. It is nice to have someone else cook but I can never see them do it or clean up after ward. Cooking is a release for me.

I like to cook once in awhile, but I usually prefer it when someone else cooks. It's hard to cook everyday, I think.

I do love to serve my friends and family, that the best way i can think of it is through cooking and preparing them foods. I'm used to to it, eversince i have learned the basics of cooking. I make sure that I cook the best meal my friends and family could ever have, that atleast would make them proud of me!;)

I love to cook big meals, and make double and triple batches to freeze. However, over the last few years, I have been having my daughters cook more and more. They are teenagers and need to learn these skills for when they move.

I love to cook and do most of the cooking in our house. My husband cooks for me on his days off if I'm working. He makes a wonderful shrimp and pasta dish. I like a break from cooking once in awhile too. Also a break from doing the dishes would be nice.

Hi Mystic, I was actually trying to respond to your message about the artists cameos in the Nickelback Video. You don't have a T.V.??? But then again it looks like you have kids so your priorities are in order, good for you! I have a poster on my fridge that says "I ONLY HAVE A KITCHEN BECAUSE IT CAME WITH THE HOUSE". I actually am a very good cook but I am a single woman that bought a Condo and has to depend on a room mate until I can get the full benefit of the tax break to boot the roomie out. You really need to see the video for Rock Star, go to the library and log on to the web site. It is FREE! Music is such a pleasure in my life, it takes my mind away from everything else. Good luck in your persuit of seeing the video.

I don't mind cooking sometimes. And other times, I like someone else cooking for me because in a sense I like being pampered or having someone else do things for me. That's not saying I won't cook if I have to and what not. It's just nice having someone else doing things for you. Especially if you're used to doing everything by yourself.

I just love to cook!My grandparents raised me when i was 1 1/2 yearsold and i learnt how to cook from my grandmother.I dont use cook books or nothing.I know exactly how much of what to put in my recipes and i do the taste test.Im very happy that i learned from her,she was always cooking up something.I have her recipe book that she put her own recipes in.The one i love the most is"alice in wonderland cherry tarts".I feel good when i am cooking and like it when others enjoy what i have made.I tell them "theres lots more!better fill up!Want some more?!"I get this from gram.lol:)God bless her up in heaven,gramps too.

Hi mystic, I love to cook. My problem is having someone to eat it up so I can make the next meal. My husband does like to cook sometimes. It depends what he's in the mood for, or what he saw Emeril do on TV. Sometimes he just wants something from his heritage. He's from the Mexican heritage and I am Cajun, so our meals vary considerably from day to day, plus we both enjoy American meals too. So yes, I do get a break now and then and it is nice to just wait for the meal to be prepared. But, getting out of the dishes would be nice, but I don't see that happening any time soon. LOL Our deal is one cooks, the other does dishes, but I usually just get the dishes going right away to get it out of the way!!
