Yes & I love to cook. I really like to bake desserts from scratch. I can not pick a favorite dish but I do enjoy making meatloaf.

Cooking with my wife is foreplay. We cook resturant qualit meals most of the time. I think it is a waste to eat at a resturant.

I'm trying to improve my cooking techniques, but I love to cook. My favorite dish to make is baked shrimp but I love trying new dishes when I have time.

I like cooking. I cook pretty basic food but I do it pretty well (I think). My home made pizza is the best... way better taste than any pizza I've ever bought.

Hell yes - I learnt to cook at a young age and I enjoy it.
I LOVE cooking roasts each saturday.
But I also enjoy cooking things like chicken Kievs, Cordon Bleu, Mongolian lamb, Rogan Josh and Beef Stroganoff.

And for desserts - Mango cheesecake and Triffle!!!

Is water wet?

I don't have a favorite dish to make - there's way too many. I just enjoy cooking and baking, period.

I love to cook as does My Man. I also bake, which he doesn't do. (You have to read instructions to bake, and he doesn't care to do that.)

I have a lot of favorite dishes. I just made up a recipe for Chicken Croquettes this week, from left over full breast chicken Kiev, rice, egg, herbs and spinach, mixed with bread crumbs and rolled in bread crumbs, with a lemon-wine gravy. It was really good.

My best work are things like savory pies and casseroles, poached fish, stews, chicken and dumplings, pot roast, soup, (any kind except bean, the man won't eat it) and Italian dishes like Puttanesca Sauce and Bracciolli (pronounced "Brah-sshoolee" by Chicago Southern Italians.) Braccoollli is a flank steak, cut so it is long, then stuffed with home made bread cubes, mixed with egg, spinach, herbs, (Parmesan or Romano if you want, but I don't eat dairy products) and maybe some olives, then rolled so you can cut it against the grain. You then tie it up (I do a fancy tie, so they are all connected. It looks good.) Then fried in olive oil until brown and put aside while you make your gravy (Italian tomato sauce) in the left over stuff in the bottom of the pot. When the gravy is put together, you put the Bracciolli back in and cook it forever. Serve with yummy pasta, like Fusilli con Buco or Zitoni (really thick spaghetti like straws) Imported tomatoes, paste and pasta makes the best gravy dish.

If I don't know how to make something, I either look on the internet or get a book from the library (or from one of our 50+ cook books) and learn how.

The Man says he's a better cook than I am. He's wrong.

I went to Culinary School (Scottsdale Culinary Institute, Le Cordon Bleu), but had dropped out due to back issues -- I still really love to cook, it just hurts me to stand for so long...

My fav things to cook would be pot roasts, home made chicken noodle soups, pastas, stir fry, random chicken recipes (using different spices/seasonings/mari nades - mixing what normally wouldn't be mixed). I haven't made something "different" in a while, I guess its time too. I used to make home made scalloped potatoes - start in the pan, and move to the oven. Hmm, I will have to dig up my recipe for that!

I love cooking. I used to think that I sucked at cooking but I'm actually pretty good and kind of creative but honestly I like to stick to traditional hearty food like my grand mother makes.

I love cooking. I've been "assigned" the role of house chef (and really don't mind the title). One of my favorite things to cook is also one of the easiest: Roasted vegetables. Preheat the oven to 425. Slice some zucchini (or eggplant or sweet potatoes or pretty much any other vegetable you have) about 1/2 inch thick. Toss with extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place on a single layer on a greased baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Flip and bake for another 8 minutes. Goes great with chicken, fish or just about any dish. The roasting really brings out the vegetable's sweetness. *YUM*

I love to cook. I'm not an excellent chef though. There are some dishes I'm really good at making, but then there are certain ones I really suck at. I'm decent at following recipes, but I mostly like to just make things by taste. So there are things I have mastered and others I have not
My favorite things to make are soups and Japanese dishes.

That's how it is for me and my husband. We both love to cook and we are both very good at what we do. We love cooking together. It brings us closer.
