Are you a good cook?
July 31, 2012 11:22pm CST
I guess most people if not all are having a skill in cooking, I mean we're capable of cooking; but to prepare a delicious food is a gift. I used to cook when I was in university. I love cooking. I cook for my family and for my boyfriend/s who are my ex-boyfriends and a friend this time.Seeing them eating my food makes me feel happy, sometimes I ask what they really feel, till I met my husband. My husband is a real good cook, and I'm proud of it. He's the one preparing our meal everyday. He wakes up early in the morning to prepare for our breakfast and lunchbox. He's indeed a good cook, and now my question before is being answered; I feel blessed and I guess those exes of mine feel blessed or lucky ;)

Yes i am a good cook. I can tell that because i experienced cooking in our carenderia and every recipe that i cooked was always sold out. Hehehehe. It is really good to feel when someone says in your recipe that it is real has a good taste. My kids and my husband also told me that i am a good cook that is why they very healthy and have a big tummy. Yesterday i prepare a fruit salad and they love it. Yummy!

My husband is a good cook too. I fell for him because of his cooking. Lol. When I was still studying, we only cook fried ones- chicken, pork, fish. This is because my mom works from early in the morning to late at night. She'd leave ready made viand inside the refrigerator and we'd just reheat them so I never really learned to make or cook viand myself. When my husband was still just my boyfriend, he usually visited me at home and volunteered to cook dinner for my family. My mom was really amazed at how he can cook fresh veggies into grand dishes. All of us in the family never liked eating much veggies until my husband introduced how healthy vegetables can be turned into mouth-watering meals.:) Now I also know, and I believe I do it well, to cook. Lol. My children enjoy every cooked meal I serve them and my office mates envy me too for being able to cook well and bring my own lunch everyday. They say "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach"' I say, it's the same with us, women. =)

I am not a very good cook as I see myself. I seldom enter kitchen for the purpose of cooking. It is not that I do not like cooking. Infact I would keep this question on hold whether I like cooking or not. I do not get as many opportunities and in that sense I do not initiate creating one. But I have cooked at some adverse moments and though it may feel a bit hectic to start with but once you are ready with even a "okay" food, you can see how proud you are of yourself.

I think I have the talent to cook. And I am also interested in it. I often watch cooking TV programs or read the cooking books and learn from them. So usually I can cook well, especially when I have a good mood. I like to cook for my family about once a week. I don't cook in usual since I have to work. I love China

Being able to cook a meal from scratch is an art,we all do it different.I love to cook for my family and friends.It shows my love and concern for their welfare.My kids are all over 18 and can cook.My daughter never had good cookery lessons at school both my kids learnt to make cakes which is all very well but not much good if they need to have a good diet.At school we learnt how to cook and prepare two course meals ,with veg and fresh fruit.pastry was also taught in fact it was a course that lasted four years starting with a boiled egg and finishing with a three course meal at the end.We were taught nurtrition all about vitamins what they did in the body.What the bad food was fats ect.They just don't teach like that anymore and it is a shame.It is good you cook and enjoy doing it also your husband.You must be very popular with your friends a good home cooked meal is a real treat for some.

I am not a good cook. Haha. I can cook only the basic stuff. I tried cooking unique recipes that I got from the internet and the cookbook. Those did not taste good at all. My family and I just laughed it off. I definitely did not inherit the great cooking skills of my mother and grandmother.

You are lucky to have a husband that cooks. I learned from my mother and grandmother at an early age. I also took Home Ec in junior high and high school. I learned a lot of different ways to do things than even my family cooked. When I left home and went in the Army I made my first Thanksgiving Turkey in the barracks where we had a nice kitchen and diningroom I remember my first sargeant come and ask me what I was doing. She said I was smelling up everywhere and laughed. I made Turkey and dressing and pumpkin pies for us that were not leaving to go home. Even though our mess halls made a special dinner for us, it was nice and more homemade than a mass one. When I got married and had 5 children I made all their party favors and cupcakes, cookies etc. So I have had a lot of practice at cooking and making others happy along the way. for me it was and still is making things from scratch. In fact tomorrow I am making about 12 dozen peanut butter cookies because I have a girlfriend coming over. Her 3 children are handicapped and all adults and takes her all day to take care of them so I am giving her half of them for a treat for the kids. So I still get to cook for children in a way. Mine are grown and gone all but my son and it has always given me pleasure to make things for others. My husbands idea of cooking is putting slices of meat between two pieces of bread and calling it a day LOL

HI Beth, I would like to think that I am a good cook..I don't cook very often at all anymore...its just me and I eat what I want when I want..definately not a balanced diet...But I do keep me happy... I also know that no one has ever gotten sick from my cooking so that alone makes me a good cook.. i would love to just take the time to prepare a fancy dish that I have either seen on the food channel or in magazines or even on the internet,, but frankly I just don't have the patience or the stregths to stay in the kitchen like that..I have never made a fancy dish,,,except maybe my Pineapple and Cream Cheese yellow cake...thats as fancy as I have even gotten,,,I must say that everyone who has ever eaten it asked when am I going to make another...

no, i am actually not a very good cook (and yes, i admit it!) i never really learned how to cook that well and my hubby is actually a much better cook than i am and so i let him when he is around on the weekends but during the week, i am the one that cooks the most.

I don't have much experience in cooking apart from our cooking and baking classes when I was in high school. I started cooking when I was a teen but don't usually cook that much because my grandma and mom are better cooks. I have mastered some recipes and cook them if I have time. Now that I am married, I try to cook everyday but I really don't have the time. But the other day when the work was suspended, I was able to go to the market and cooked beef stew which is perpect because it has been raining. So far, they all loved it.

cook is a part of daily life. I also love cooking. However, since my works are getting busy. It is difficult for me to spend time on cooking. But when I am free in weekend, I would like to cook for my family. I am Very skillful in cooking fish. The keys to cook a tasty fish dish are to add sufficient gradients, including ginger, garlic etc.
