hello! i am a college student and passionate about cooking. i like to try out the different types of dishes and treat my family and friends with it. the pure satisfaction of finishing a tasty dish is something that i have not experienced for a long time now. I've been working on my other interests and finding and learning new things that interests me that cooking has taken a backseat. well, i know i can make a dish as soon as i get the time to. have you faced this phase? what do you do? do you feel like you might lose touch of cooking!?

there were times were I felt lazy to cook that i just dine out when i'm hungry but now I prefer cooking my own food. I was trying to explore cuisines outside my culture and cook recipes I never cooked before. i also try to experiment and invent my own dishes. I love to think outside the box and try many things. I think i wont lose touch if I wont cook for a long time,. My dad is a chef and my mom cooks delicious dishes. It runs in the family.

wow! That would be really nice to have a chef at home. probably my laziness to cook would be more if someone at home cooks well and i get to eat yummy food!

There are ways to make cooking faster though, I already quit using fresh garlic and onions, I rather use Garlic and onion powder, makes the job easier and faster. garlic powder is actually natural, its fresh garlic sun dried and grinded, no additives.

I cook during weekends when i don't have work at the office. But, had i get the time to cook , i would always like to cook. It's because i like to eat delicious viands which i would cook.

my case is similar to yours. work makes life hectic or mechanical and any free time available, i would like to take rest or sleep than do any other work

No, i try new varieties for every two weeks, non-veg and veg. I love to make different types of foods. When i used to do engineering i used to stay in room.So, if i don't know anything i used to ask my mom new varieties.So, i love to prepare new dishes.

that sounds like a really nice and busy cooking day i don't know how i would manage all the cooking if i were in your place, cause it takes a long time for me to cook a dish

I love to cook. Actually thats what I love most to do tho Im not an expert nor even close of being good at it. I just love to experiment.lol. But since I got pregnant (5 months on the way now) I became so lazy and just let our helper do the cooking. I just hope after my delivery I could take charge of my kitchen again.

First of all, congratulations! :) All the things that pregnancy can do to a woman!? generally if i have work, i skip cooking for a long time. But i crave to cook but feel lazy and end up just eating some delicious food from outside ;)

No it has not been long time since i cooked. Because i have cook food for lunch today. I am also a student and do live in hostel so my food need to cook by myself. Though maximum time my best friend who is my room mate she cooks food for me.But i also cook food some time. So it has not been long time. Very often i do cook for me and for my room mate. Have a good time!

Hi khalida... I think it will be a nice visit to your home to have some special dishes... I am actually lazy in cooking... yet, i have to cook sometimes and as far i can remember.. i cooked just three days ago, when my mom was ill and had back pain. Have a nice day.
