for me, cooking and doing house work are things that I do not like them to do but I have to do. I do not like cooking at all but sometimes when I cook, I do it well. That much than is in my possibility I try to escape from cooking. How about you? do you enjoy cooking?

I am a girl but i don't love cooking like the way other woman loving it. So irony , i hate to cook but i love to eat. I am not lazy but i don't know i prefer to do other thing than cooking but then if no house helper to do it for me , i am forced to cook . I have learnt from an elder who said , that a woman should know how to cook a little , because a way to a man's heart is through his stomach ! Haha therefore never mind not having a man as long as i don't cook !

Hi, I don't love cooking because I don't know how to cook, but I enjoy watching people cook in tv. Its like while I'm watching them I don't have any idea how do they do it. And after they are finish what they are cooking I would also like to taste the finished meal they did. Perhaps I just love and enjoy eating.

May be you can buy an instant dish maker packet and pour some water in it and most probably the dish will be ready.

I like cooking, but I hate cleaning up. That is the problem. I really enjoy trying new foods and I like how I season things for my taste. Housework, not so much. I like the results when I get something clean though.

Actually, I love to cook. The problem is my husband is a very picky eater and I love a wide variety of foods. Whomever invented the freezer needs a hug! I can make my soups and casseroles and freeze some for later. Besides, it's healthier. I enjoy looking through little cookbooks and coming up with my own recipe ideas. Cleaning, while it isn't the joy of my life, it isn't so bad. Mind you, having lived in some really nice homes and some not so nice homes, I have learned that I don't have to do the white glove test to be happy. I do like it germ free though. But with animals, there will always be pet hair, even five seconds after cleaning. I do intend on cutting down on some of the clutter, all the time it takes to dust, eeeeek. That would be my biggest issue with cleaning.

I don't think it makes you less normal a woman. Many women don't care to cook or clean. There are a lot of men that enjoy cooking and cleaning. I really think it's more about what we can get excited about. I love all kinds of food. I love the creative process. I'm not one of those that is going to spend days planning an elaborate event though. As I mentioned, my husband is a very picky eater. Therefore, if I want to enjoy the miriads of flavors available, I need to cook. I can't eat pork chops every day! Plus, the fact that I had to change my diet to keep from being diabetic meant I had to be creative in order to get the flavors of my favorite things without all the fat, calories, sugar, etc. Cleaning becomes less of a chore if you ever had to clean up after hurricanes, or even experienced living in a less than hygenic environment. But when you are stressed out, there is nothing like turning the radio on, turning the volume up, and cleaning and dancing your way through the chores. Anyhow, I know a lot of woman and men that don't care for either.

maybe it is because my mom always avoid me to work in kitchen and she did not want me to cook, it become a habit, a bad habit I think, I start cooking in the age of 25.

There are days that I would be in such hyper mood that I would cook something special for my family. I do love to cook cause, my kids always show appreciation with the dishes that I prepare for them. Most especially during special occasions, I would be cooking at least 5 dishes for both my family and y husband's family.

I love cooking since i was young, i love to stay in the kitchen where i can make my own food. I love to experiment and trying new recipes everyday. I enjoy cooking a lot and it makes me feel that I am the best cook ever when i saw my husband smile while eating my fresh cook food for him.

I think kitchen is important to give us mood to work in. Here I do not like the kitchen at all and that is why I do not like to spend time in that.

I love cooking, but I don't think cooking loves me in return. I am not really a good cook but I am learning to be one. Practice makes perfect and I know that as long as I don't burn the kitchen and poison us all then I still have hopes to becoming a very good cook even just for my family.

I like cooking but doing house work is something debatable for me.:-) I am not really fond of vacuum cleaners, rags, floor polishers, brooms and all those stuff used for cleaning the house. When I was young, I usually trade places with my sister when it comes to cleaning the house or cooking lunch. I'd rather cook than sweep the floor. One reason is that I am terribly allergic to dust hence I usually pass when it comes to cleaning. Now that I live alone, I don't have a choice but to clean my own house.

I like eating, but I am not sure I like cooking or not. With a good skill, it helps me enjoying the food, but prepare food material and cook them into dishes is a very hard task, especially prepare dishes for a big family. But cooking for the family members is a good way to show your love to them. Maybe the sweetness from your family members is the source for you love cooking.
