I like cooking, but I don't do it often. My husband is the cook in our family and he is an incredible cook. I like to bake more anything. My husband is always wanting me to make him cupcakes. I like to make different kinds of chicken dishes and I make a really good lasagna.

Hi andrejuly84! I am a stay home wife(LOL!) so I have all the time in the world to experiment in cooking. Haha... I do cook everyday and prepare all the meals. I enjoy cooking especially when my husband says it really tastes good. Most of the time I prepare Asian cuisine. However, I never learned how to bake cakes though my hubby and I are cake lovers. Have a nice day and take care.

I enjoy cooking when I don't feel rushed and when I think it will be appreciated. I don't "enjoy" cooking when things are hectic in my life. When things are busy, it just seems like one moer thing to do. The other problem is that my family has different likes and it is a challenge, sometimes to prepare meals that everyone likes. My approach depends on my mood. Sometimes it doesn't bother me to cook even if I know someone will not like that meal. I will usually have an alternative for that person. But when I'm in a bad mood, then I feel frustrated. It think that no matter what I cook, someone is going to complain, so why bother?

Yes, i do like cooking for my family. When my husband is on his vacation from work I always make sure that I cook all his favorite food that I know how to cook and sometimes I try to bake also, try to cook food that i do not know but with the cook book as my guide. Though sometimes im not successful for my first try but still my husband try to eat and react with good comments of course.hahaha. maybe his afraid that i will get mad of him when he give me a negative comment. But according to him at least i tried to cook. I do have free time for cooking during weekends when my family dont go out for malling or picnic.

I cook whenever I can. I'm up to 4-6 days a week for dinner. As far as my favorite dishes to cook, it spans the entire globe. I love cooking italian, mexican, spanish, german, chinese and japanese among several others. Then there's always experimentations that really surprise people who taste it (I've been constantly hounded for dinner ideas and recipes). Now my favorite type of cooking method would most likely be frying, maybe steaming. My favorite cooking type beyond that is baking.

i enjoy cooking and i have to cook twice a day and 365 days a year. Only there are some exceptions.But i am proud that all my family members are satisfied by my cooking.And i too enjoy cooking for them. My family is veg, so we have vegetables, rice, chapatis and like that stuff. Indian food has too many varieties and i change the menu accordingly.

I love to cook for my family, always!;) Just this evening, I cooked them everything for dinner. from rice to viands, that is what we use to eat here in the Philippines. Rice as our staple food, with viands depending from what we prefer. I like serving my family, that is how I show them gratitude and be thankful to my parents..

I usually enjoy cooking. I cook about 4-5 nights a week. I try to have leftovers for a couple nights and occasionally we go out when I'm too tired or uninspired :) I like to bake quick breads/muffins and cook veggie stews, casseroles, stir fry, pasta, and veggie burgers.

i love cooking for my family especially if i had a new recipe. i done it everyday coz of no job, but everytime i do prepare is a nutritional food and balance not too much that would harm our body system.
