Who Cooks the "BEST" Eye-Ball Rolling Food??

Well I love to eat and I thought I would share my thoughts and opinions here about who I believe to cook the best tasting food between the people I know personally. First of all I thought this was going to be an easy straight up answer, but unfortunately it's not, and I just found this out just now after I started typing this. Okay overall I would have to say my grandma's cooking has to be in the top two spots. She cooks about any good food imaginable for my taste buds. I grew up hooked on her foods so that tells it all. My mother's cooking is also in the top two because she knows how to cook her food just right that seems to always hit that nerve in my brain and taste buds. Sometimes I think she's purposely trying to hypnotize me for real. Who knows, we'll save that for another discussion won't we? Anyway I grew up eating my momma's and grandma's foods, so of course I'm crazy over it, but I also love certain dishes cooked by other people...for example, my husband can wip up some mad pancakes, rice and other foods that I love, and my dad can do up some crazy home-made peach cobbler that no one does, so I think you get my point here. I think if a person can show-out on cooking some delicious dishes, I say they can cook! in my book. Who's cooking do you like the most?

Of the people I've lost I have to say my Grandma. She made the most fantastic divinity at Christmas and her everyday cooking was grand. Of the living, I'll have to say my stepmother and my father, both terrific cooks but they don't do much of it anymore as he is 89 and she's 84. My mom used to cook better than anyone except Grandma but she stopped cooking years ago and now that my family is grown and I'm alone, I understand why! It's great to just take something out of the freezer and microwave it--very few dishes and cheap, too!

I am afraid that if I lived alone I would live off those 88 cent frozen dinners. I admired the fact that my mom continued to cook for herself and made things seasoned just the way she liked it.

My grandma always have cooked big for holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving. Everyone related who lived within a 100 mile radius would come by for the holidays.

Gerty, I cook quite often because it's healthier that way. Those 88 cent dinners are yummy but are filled with salt! Even Healthy Choice has enough salt in one dinner to meet the daily requirement and sometimes more. Miracle--I remember Christmas and Thanksgiving at Grandma's! At my dad's parents' house the relatives came from neighboring states till the house was ready to burst. At my mom's parents' house it was just a dozen people and that was a nice, homey group. I really miss those days!

I always liked my grandma's and mom's cooking. They are the best. My granddaughter does a good job. I like mine too. Old home cooking. Stews, roasts and such as that. Soups, beans and corn bread. Yum! Makes me hungry to think about it. We all like to eat so we all learned to cook what we like to eat. Smart, eh?

Yummy sounds really yummy! It is a good idea to learn how to cook the foods you love, and to keep messing around with it to make it taste even better.

Oh, yes I so agree. I have several different ways of cooking my favorite dishes.

I would have to say that growing up I really enjoyed eating my grandmother's food. She used to cook all the time and would always cook some really delicious food. My aunt can also cook up something fierce and really delicious. My dad was always good at making steaks and hamburger's taste delicious. My mom could bake, but cook she didn't really do very well at. Now my husband and I live with his parents and we don't really know how to cook many things, in fact I could list all the things we know how to cook in say one paragraph. In any case, his parents cook and I have to say they both cook equally as well depending on the dish at hand. I do long for some dishes my grandmother used to make that I haven't had in a long time London Broil, Salisbury Steak being two of them.

My husband and I can cook okay, but it's nothing fancy or exciting. Both of us cook throughout the week, but I really do miss my mom's and grandma's cooking. I think it's a good idea to cook for myself, because I have to watch what I eat, that means I have to know what's in my food. I can't hangout with sugar anymore or too much sodium, and other things that aren't healthy.

Being able to cook for yourself is always a plus because you can watch the intake of things like sodium and sugar. I do want to learn to cook more, especially homemade biscuits and things like that. I think nowadays too many people just don't have the time or energy to cook from scratch anymore. My husband and I know how to cook pretty much anything to do with Ground Beef but not chicken, though I have cooked chicken in the past it's been a long time ago.

I will be biased and say that my Mum cooks the best food ever :) Most especially because she cooks it with love

I like my son's cooking best of all. He isn't afraid to try new things, and because of this we enjoy many things that we've never had before. He and I both enjoy exploring new ingredients, herbs and cooking methods. And, doesn't food always taste better when some one else cooks it?

Oh yes, it really does taste the best when I don't cook it, which is probably the leading reason why I don't fight with my husband when he wants to cook.

For me this question depends on what the person is cooking and what the occasion is. So for example my mom makes an amazing turkey and trimmings for Thanksgiving, would not want to go anywhere else but there for that Holiday. My mother in law makes corn beef that does not stay on the serving platter for very long. One of my cousins makes really good chicken parmasan with homemade pasta sauce, so good. Lastly one of my neighbors really could be a gourmet chef, his pit beef is the kind that should be sold at a restaurant. So now that I have made myself hungry, I will stop there.

My grandma makes the tastiest turkey and dressing. I would go nowhere else if I had a choice.

I tend to like my own cooking the best, and it needs to stop!!! I am trying to lose weight. Hubby makes a really great steak. I love things with creamy sauces.I also make really good roasts. I just really like food.

If you're trying to lose weight, you can start cooking some creative healthy meals for that purpose. I use to think we had to settle for just raw veggies to lose weight, but I've learned a little creativity could work wonders.

My grandma used to cook the best fried chicken ever. Better than KFC. She would have put Cornel Sanders to shame. We used to tell her we should open a fried chicken place. Of coarse all her food was good. She used to roll out dough and cut her own homemade chicken noodles. God they were so good. My mom told me the day i was born she held back going tho the hospital because my grandma was cooking noodles and she wanted to eat some before she left. That may explain why i loved them so much. My grandma passed away about 12yrs ago now.
