Hi guys ive been wondering, do you love cooking? Cause if you will ask me i am really fond of cooking different foods. Aside from surfing online, i do a lot of cooking in out house, and my family always ask me to cook the foods specially for dinner. i do not know if the foods that i cooked are delicious, but one thing i know is that my family loves it and they are happy of what will cook for them. How about you? What are the most delicious food that you have cooked? is it hard? or easy? is fast? or it takes time? Visit this link for the foods that i cooked and eat. http://smartdad.info/ChickenAdobo.aspx and http://smartdad.info/sisig.aspx, there it is, how about you?

I have always loved to cook and bake for my family. My husband cooks really good to. I love it when he cooks. At times we will make things together or we will take turns making dinner. I like making home made potato soup, vegetable soup, chicken dinners,chicken salads,steak salads and tons more.

Wow with that statement i am sure you really are a good cook. I also love cooking and just like you, i can cook a lot of foods.

Yes I sure can share recipes with you. This chicken will take a deep fryer or a pan. Put olive oil in the deep fryer or pan. Get a bag of skinless boneless chicken cut each piece of chicken in half. You will need 2 bowls one for flour and one for the eggs. put a cup of flour in one bowl and add what seasoning you want to the flour, mix the flour up with the seasoning in it. In the other bowl mix your eggs. Dips the chicken in the egg then in the flour next and deep fry it for about 5 to 7 minutes. The take it out and let cool a little. Its very good.

Hi Rj, Since i was a kid my mom exposed me to cooking. I used to be her assistant in chopping the garlic, onions and tomatoes plus peeling vegetables. as i grow up i develop the skills in cooking and even learn how to experiment with food. Now i am confident to say that i am a good cook. My family used to tease me as mommy chef!

Wow i am sure you cook really great. I hope i can taste foods that you cook, anyway no one expose me to cooking but myself, i learn a lot of foods to cook only by myself i do not know why, maybe because i love eating that is why i also love being a cook. I learn a lot from TV shows, internet, books that i brought and from some relatives. You are lucky to have a mom like that. Anyway can you share me some recipes i will share also some to you. Have a nice day.

Thank you so much for that, that is what i am doing right now, i am enhancing it. But i guess i need to focus on this internet business again before re opening my food business so that, if i already have so many traffics i can place my foods and products there. Thank you so much for the motivation, i do appreciate it. Have a nice day.

I love to cook but hate the mess. Thank God for a dishwasher. It keeps me humble. I even like it when my husband cooks but the mess is twice as bad. I just do not like to cook and have to wait on my husband. I like for him to walk in when it is just getting done or just lacking 5 to 10 minutes to finish. It really aggravates me when he gives me a time and then does not show up for 2 hours later...

O yes thank because there is a dishwasher. LOL! I really hate cleaning up after cooking, that is why as much as possible i do not want to cook messy. Or if the food that i am cooking is a little messy, then i will ask a maid to clean it for me. O i see, so you still need to wait for your husband. Does he have work outside? A regular work? Anyway i think it is better to cook when he is already close approaching to your house. Not when he said to wait for him, so that the foods will still be freshly cooked. Have a nice day and have a healthy married life.

I envy you for having a maid... I need one....HAHA.... I live in a 14 x 70 mobile home that my husband and I own but sometimes the housework gets overwhelming when I am trying to finish up some of my work.... Every once in awhile I will hire the girl next door to take everything off my wooden shelf and dust it....(about 30 min) job. Just small little things.... I am getting diagnosed with fibromylagia right now. I have to go through a few more test for my diagnosis so it is hard for me to do things.. I will take it back... I can do the work but I am down for a couple of days after moving shelves and my furniture out to clean behind... so I would rather pay someone $5 for 30 minutes then be sore the next 2.

Don't be sad, i am sure you will get better soon. Don't envy me for having a maid, they are also a pain when they are lazy and of course we need to pay them even if sometimes the work is not good. and we pay them 3000 a month. They just clean then sleep then clean then sleep again then go to market then after that sleep again at night. They are even allowed to use cellphones here. We are not really strict in terms of that rules, we just want them to do their job.

I cook from time to time. I have cooked "tinolang manok," "saute ground beef," "spaghetti," and other fried meals. I also begin loving baking cake now . Whe you love the things that you do it does not matter if it is easy or hard. The point is you love it even if it is an arduous task. Cheers.

O wow a fellow Filipino. I also cook those kind of foods, actually i know a lot of recipes, the only food that i cannot cook perfectly is spaghetti. I do not know why, i can cook sisig which is surely much harder to cook than spaghetti, but i cannot cook spaghetti, get my point? You re right about that, it doesn't matter whether it is hard or not, what important is that you know that after cooking people who will eat the food that you cooked will be happy. Thank you so much and have a nice day.

I would love to cook but I can't seem to find the time. I live independently and I would love to make my own meals. Problem is that when I go home, I'm usually too tired or too sleepy to cook. I like healthy food and those minute wonders. I like sisig too as I grew up from where it originated. I would love to take culinary arts as a side class someday.

O i see, your living on your own, and you must be working. You don't really have time for that. Why don't you hire someone to cook for you, or maybe just hire someone who knows how to cook, but you will still be the one to tell, him/her the ingredients that you want and what food to cook. Anyway, you can still take culinary arts, it is not yet too late for that, education is for everyone, anytime and anywhere. I think if you will choose to follow your dreams and feelings, you will be a successful individual. Who knows you maybe a well known chef someday. Have a nice day!

I salute you. I don't cook ( seldom ) eventhough I'm a housewife. So nice if someone is to cook for me. Mainly it's because I don't like the cleaning before and after cooking. Moreover my husband doesn't eat home so what's the point in creating so much work for myself? He always eat before coming home, like to have his little time with friends at the coffee shop. But I do like to eat home cooked food. HA! HA!

And one thing, cooking knowledge is a must for a wife. It also one of the factors that make a relationship strong. Anyway, thank you so much for the sharing and i do really appreciate it.

I would say that cooking is my favorite past time and as of now I know to cook a lot of dishes and I'm happy with that. It's a nice feeling if the people around you like the food you cook and its kinda jumped your heart to the highest level. I think its better if all of us learned how to cook because its a plus factor specially to the girls.

But now i only cook for my wife, LOL, cause if i do cook for other girls it will surely be a world war. HAHAHAHA. Anyway share me recipes ok? Thank you so much for the response and have a nice day.

I do love cooking. Probably because I love food a lot. My cooking style has changed over the years, I used to cook eals with lovely sauces and cheese. Many of those meals were high in fat. I began cooking meals with a lot of vegetables and salad. Then my husbsnd developed bad allergies, so I had to learn to cook gluten free meals, low in salyiclates and diabetic. Now that my ex husband and I have seperated, Im going back to tasty meals with capsicums, mushrooms, onion and lots of stronmg herbs.

I know how to cook 20 dishes from pork, 20 dishes from chicken and 20 dishes from beef. I know 5 dishes from fishes, and 4 dishes from vegetables. I also love to cook soups cause always like to have soup while eating. O i feel sorry for your husband developing such allergies. Anyway you can cook for alternatives so that he can still taste foods that he have allergies. Thank you so much and have a nice day.
