i love to cook and eat. but of these two if you are the one who cook the food you would not eat much( in my own experience) many times i feel satisfied when other like my cook. i feel good when somebody appreciates my cook. my point is that in terms of satisfaction to cook delicious food and satisfy somebody is more fulfilled than to eat and enjoy the delicious taste of food. what can you say?

keep up the good habit: cook and eat, but beware of the disadvantages on eating those delicious foods which may contain a lot of disadvantages, specially the processed, canned goods, milk with melamine. i could advise you to try not so delicious natural foods,fruits bananas, mangoes, crops,sweet potato, fish and vegetables that are fresh and lots of nutritions.Okay!

I like to do both. I love to cook but I usually cook way to much food. I also like to have food cooked for me on occasion.

congratulation you are one in ten, to do both is so good, one way or another it will benefit you most. if you are hungry you can make your own food, if you want to offer foods to relatives or friends you can prepare for it, that's good. keep up the good work! enjoy eating and cooking, thank you for sharing your side story!

I'd much rather eat (and the numbers on my scale prove that!). I don't mind cooking if I need to, but I'm tired of cooking the same things all the time. One problem is my food budget is very limited, so I buy only chicken and hamburger, and it's hard to come up with new things.

yeah! you're not alone, many people were like eat not cook. i agree financial aspect is a factor whether to cook or just buy a ready to eat foods. but usually you could save cost if you buy raw materials and prepare or cook. in your case, no doubt you're a busy type person so eat is preferable than to cook. enjoy here in mylotting!

this is a very very tough choice...i like both..though in reality i am not a great cook..but none the less i enjoy cooking as much as eating..i have a weird wy to go about it though..when i am very hungry all i want to do is eat and not cook at all!i would hate to cook when i am very hungry..impatience gets on me when i have to do that and if in those circumstances i am made to cook..all i'll come up with is -A DISATER! and on the other hand,if i am not very hungry(for sure not starving) then i have all the patience and inclination towards cooking and following up even the lenghtiest recipies of all time!so yes i love to cook as well as eat(my mood being the sole decidind factor here):)

well to cook in my own opinion, doesn't have a standards as to how good is the taste of what you cook it depends on the tongue who taste it. somehow you could be a great cook if you like your own cooked food and mark your self as such. yes during those times of hungriness we could be as hunger crocodile or sharp toothed shark. keep on replying and smile!

yes cooking is so cool hobby. it's the best reward for the cooker if somebody complimented the cook. yes there are times we lost appetite on eating our own cook food. based on my personal experience the reason is because we are being immune on the smell and sometimes often seeing of same menu also tends to lost appetite. yes vegetable are ideal source of nutritious elements.Okay friend i will visit your blog soon. thank you!

okay continue eating! you can do such while staying here. eat is the final process in cooking activity. after cook it would not end there to see if good or not is the cook, of course it would end on the comment of the person who eat! at least you have a participation on determining if that cook is successful or not! good luck to you!

I really love to cook than eat, especially i love to cook for my family and friends. I always cook home and invite some friends to taste at weekends. I enjoy very much when i get their advice of comments of my food. I feel satisfied when i saw people eat up all the dishes. sometimes i just cook for myself when i feel bad. I also love to eat when i meet friends outside. Everytime i will remember whatever i eat outside and try to cook it myself when i get back home. Cooking is a special growing way for people, i think.

yes being a woman talent in cooking is an asset.it enhances the beauty of a woman. to cook for family and friends signifies care and thoughtfulness. yes you could learn from other dishes especially in restaurants. other way to add techniques in cooking is through internet of course you know that. yes i agree cooking indicates growth in a person. the more recipes and dishes you can prepare and cook the more your personality improved.

I sent a friendship request hope you will accept it. thank you and good luck!

It depends on the food... Some foods I love to prepare, cook, and eat... Others I do not enjoy preparing and would prefer being the one eating.. Others I like to cook and prepare but I will not eat if my life depended on it... like.. Tomatoes.. I also like to garden and grow them.. but I will not eat them unless they are green fried... But I do not know how to make green fried tomatoes yet :) - DNatureofDTrain Most of what I enjoy eating no one else in my family will touch like dandelion fritters, puffball pizza.. :) I love wild edibles

I'm not a very good cook. I'm one of those people who messes up the simplest of recipes. I enjoy other people's cooking though.

For me, I prefer eat to cook. In fact, I am a girl who is a little lazy, so I would rather wait until others cook well and serve me. However, sometimes, I find that there is a lot of pleasure when you cook for yourself and when you cook well and other people apppreciate your cook.

I prefer to eat than to cook though I love to cook.Somehow when you cook you will be full and have not much appetite to eat after finishing the cooking.But when you are eating you will be waiting for the food to be consumed and fill up your stomach.I am feeling more satisfied to eat good food rather than cook good food.Because I love FOOD and i love eating them rather than looking at them being prepared.
