Is it you who cooks at home, or someone else ?

First of all, I am not a good cook. All I know is how to boil water ! LOL ! So, I have to depend on someone else. I have an excellent cook, who can prepare delicious cuisines, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I must say I am very fortunate in that way. How about you ? Do you cook your meals yourself, or have someone else do it for you ?

Hi friend. I cook my meals myself. I love to cook and people say that I am a very good cook LOL. I don't know if it is true but I try to believe LOL. Now serious, all the persons that eat what I cook ask for a new invite always so I must think that I am a good cook. Lucky me because I like to cook and I need to do it every day. Cheers.

I am the one who cooks our meals. I don't want to let someone do it for me specially for my family. I am very conscious on what my family eats, specially my kids. I want to prepare healthy foods for them. HUGZ!

Also, you can do more than boil water! Have faith! Cooking takes pratice. Start out with some easy recipes and build from there. Or even boxed stuff, just follow the directions. One of the biggest secrets I think is to NOT cook on High temps.....that leads to alot of burning quickly on the outside and raw or mushy in the middle. Had a bad experience with that years ago!

Ok, I think it would be a good way to start with the boxed stuff. Thank you for the suggestion. Have a nice weekend !

My boyfriend does most of the cooking here. He was a cook at a really nice restaurant for 4 years... until the restaurant owners sold it. He really is a fantastic cook, so I usually just let him do it. I've started cooking a little more since I'm not working and I'm at home all day, but he's still the main cook.

I have been taught to help out in the kitchen since I was little so I know how to cook more or less an enjoyable meal when parents are away without making a mess like what I see on those tv shows. Everyone can make whatever they want with suitable ingredients. Sometimes I still see people out there learning how to cook when they are at age 25. How sad can it be.

Virtually the cooking is done b my wife and she is expert in cooking. Nw she has become an expert cook in the oil free cooking because both of us avoid fats and oily food. Some time we like to cook special items of chicken and fish. Then I use to prepare the things for marinate the chicken and fish and I cook it in the microwave and we both enjoy it because our daughter is away at the university at other place for study and we both are alone. Whenever my daughter is here even then I like to cook chicken in the oven and other cooking my wife.How you see it please comment and have a nice day.

hi.. yes, i do the cooking myself at home. This is because i love cooking and i get the satisfaction after i finish with the dishes. Sometimes i try new recipes and sometimes i perfected my frequent recipes. Why dont you try cooking? there is always a first time. It cant be that bad. I am sure your partner/spouse will love it and will be proud of you.. there are a lot of recipes over the internet and you can always find the simplest one.. and try. all the best

I'm not a good cook and I can cook only some simple dishes. To tell the truth I hate cooking. Besides, comming home from my job I'm very tired and have no desire to cook something. My mum cooks in our family. She cooks very tasty dishes.

Yes, i do all the cooking here. Not just because i am a mother of 3 but because i got it from my mother who was an excellent cook. Now, i have to do the cooking for the entire family. Whenever, we have family occassions, i do all the cooking. During "special holidays" like Christmas, New Year and during "festivals" here where i live i do the cooking. I don't do it like a chef but i can cook for a large number of people. There are days though, that i wish i can just sit back and relax and someone will do it for me. But, i lovoe to cook no matter how tiring it may be, i am happy seeing them enjoy what i have prepared for them. Have a good night, my friend!

Well I am a very passable cook. I am always the one who cooks in the morning since I am the first one up. Lunch would usually be done by my father. Then dinner would either be done by my father or mother. Everyone in our family cooks. Though i am always the one who gets to cook something special during weekends and holidays but its something that I really enjoy doing. My father is a very good cook and a very particular with how the food tastes.

I love to cook! I have 2 problems, I work 48-50 hours a week and dont have time to cook the way I want to and 2nd I cant just cook for 3! I cook huge meals. I miss cooking for everyone. I always felt so great about myself watching everyone enjoy the meals I prepared. Lately I have been the Hamburger Helper queen!!! I know that sounds lazy, but after working, cleaning house, kids getting in from school. I actually have a Sunday off so I think I just might sit down and plan out a menu for a big family Sunday dinner! So thank you for the inspriration!!!!
