Cooking is one of the most important house tasks. It directly affects the appetite of everybody in the house and if you can cook really well, then that would be so great! In our family my mother and I cook for all our housemates and I am very happy when they think my cooking was good. You? Can you cook? If you do, what do you commonly cook? If you don't, who cooks in your family?

I wouldn't call what I do cooking, but I try. I have cook myself, since my job took me away from the family for a year. Any easy recipes?

I only learnt to properly cook in the last 5 years or so and that was because my husband taught me Indian cooking. Before that I could only cook by reading the instructions on packets and very basic things like rice, pasta and spaghetti. My husband and I live together and we share the cooking. He loves cooking and we both work full time so we take turns as with all the other household chores. He is actually a much better cook than me but he thinks I have learnt cooking really easily and he says I cook his dishes better than he does now LOL!

I know cooking is very important house work, especially for a girl. But I don't have many chance to practice it, maybe I am too lazy to learn it. Sometimes I cook, But I don't good at it. I am sure to learn on it someday. I guess I'll learn to make dessert first, such as cookies. Because that's what I want to eat most!

I suggest you really try to learn how to cook well because that would be fantastic! As you might know, the way through a man's heart is through his stomach.. LOL

yes i know how to cook and i made it a hobby. my family runs a canteen business for may years now and we are well loved by our clients because of the quality and the reasonable prices of our products. i learned to cook from my parents and i'm very thankful for that. i usually cook pork and chicken dishes or at times i love cooking pasta like salads, spaghetti or i prepare pizza and other sandwiches.

i love to cook, but the sad part there's only the two of us in the house. whenever i cook there's always a lot of leftovers. so lately have not cooked that much. i love to cook italian and spanish dishes. love to use olive oil when cooking.

I do love to cook, but I have to admit I'm terrible at it. I'm much better at baking to be honest. I tend to burn things a lot, and either add too much of a certain ingredient or not enough. Either that happens or I realize after I've already started cooking that I don't have a necessary product that I try to cover up with something else. Never really works out too well. My boyfriend is a good cook thankfully so he's the one that feeds us.

Oh yeah! I can cook and I love cooking for my family. I can cook menus even for gatherings and party. I always feel happy too when my cousins would start coming over to our house when they hear that I am cooking something new for the weekend. They love to sample whatever I cook. It is kind of fulfilling.

im a bad cook. if what i cook is not burnt, its still raw. in our family, my mom and my brothers are really a good cook. they always manage to turn up anything ordinary such as hotdogs into a delicious meal. unfortunately, my sister and i dont have a knack for cooking. so far our major culinary achievement is making a coffee. hahaha!

I don't cook as much as I used to when all the kids were home. I'm a pretty good cook when I need to. But, with just the 2 of us for meals we tend to eat easier things to fix. I do make vegetable soup and chili that I can freeze and package in small packages. My husband likes to cook out on the grill when the weather is nice.

I cook great melts-in-the-mouth lasagna, other pasta dishes and a number of specialty dishes and desserts. So I just cook on special occasions while my aunt does the daily cooking in our home. I learned to cook at a very young age and I was really interested in learning the craft that's why I watched my mom closely whenever she's cooking or baking when I was still young. I really like to see people appreciate my cooking and get pleased with it. :)

I can cook although most of time i choose not too. But my best meals are meatloaf, beef and brocolli, 15 beans soup,chicken soup (homemade), cabbage and beef with potatoes, bbq chicken with homemade sauce, those are to name only a few. But my husband is the wild game cook of the house I cant compare to him when it comes to deer meat any way you like it he can do it.

I rarely cook because I don't live with my parents now. I live out by myself so it is boring to cook for myself,i usually eat out.

Yeah,i am very proud to tell everbody that i can cook and i love to cooked.When me and my xhusband still together,im the one who usually cooked for breakfast,lunch and dinner. No matter how i feel so tired from work but have always time to cook for the family.When we separate,i was devastated and ive changed a lot. Cooking habit was totally stoped and i feel really tired to cooked.But just lately,i have my spirit again for cooking. Last night is my 4th son birthday.I cooked spaghetti like 2 kilos.Everyone told me how delicious my spaghetti is.It taste like jollibee/mcdonalds.So exagerrating but it makes me smile and happy deep inside.Knowing that they enjoyed the food i cooked for the whole family who are just our visitors for my sons birthday last night.

yes, everyone in this house knows how to cook. at least we know how to cook the simplest foods. it is important that we know how to do the basics. we can go hungry amidst plentiful foods around if we do not know how to cook at all.
