Often on summer weekends I prefer to have a quick-fix supper. I'm too busy doing things outside or with hubby to stand in the kitchen for a long time. Besides, being in the kitchen means I'm alone. But in the winter time I enjoy the kitchen. It's a warm place where good aromas of soups and stews draw in my boys for supper. Normally I do love to cook. My favorite is baking and that's probably not a good thing as we all tend to enjoy it too much. rolleyes Cooking is one reason I enjoy holidays. I have a chance to make things I only make on rare occasion. Not sure why that is but we seem to be creatures of habit.

Do you enjoy cooking??? Or does it depend on the time of year, how you're feeling or who's coming over to eat. What kind of cooking to you enjoy?

I'm not a good cook rather a feed the masses type of one, stir fries being a speciality or spaghetti!!! But there is something very satisfying in baking, my kids love chocolate brownies and lately I've added an Italian lemon cake to my repertoire, muffins always disappear fast and the old standard chocolate crackle for parties. Maybe when I get my new kitchen I'll feel inspired to master some new culinary treats, golitho

I love to BBQ and when the weather does not permit, I don't mind taking over the kitchen. My family loves marinated ribeyes. Last week end I BBQ some shrimp and added veggie kabobs with mushrooms, different colored peppers and onions. I basted them with a lemon infused olive oil and sprinkled them with sea salt. No one mentioned BBQ this weekend, I wonder if something is up. Sometimes just a good grilled hamburger is great. I might have to start planning.

yeah   yeah yeah I LOVE TO COOK yeah yeah yeah
 
I google new recipes all the time.  I try new foods on the family at least once a week.  Cooking is so important to me that I started teaching my 15 yr old son my recipes.  He also loves to cook if he can stay off the xbox 360 long enough.
 
Holidays are big events for me.  We have traditions on each holiday to what food is made.  Our holidays are just the 5 of us for my mom died 7 yrs ago and everyone else has other things to do other then come to our house on the holidays.  confused   (or they stop by late at night and ask for leftovers, yes they do and it is kinda rude but they just love my food..lol)
 
 
There are times I feel bad and my hubby cooks.  He has NEVER cooked in 18 yrs of marriage until the last 8 months when the **** has increased.  He knows how to make three things..lol  I try not to say anything about **** or else we get spagetti again.. nono    But I love him for the efforts....

"Do you enjoy cooking???"
 
     Yes I do. Though I suppose I am an "everyday" cook.  I spend about 6hrs a day in the kitchen. I make everything by hand, so we dont have a high food cost. Food cost for us is VERY low. Well shoot, you guys wont care... it is about 500 a month for our family of 4, with a continual stream of folks stopping by or dropping in. I buy in bulk, so I suppose that is also why it is so low. There is always place for one more tummy at our table. I am still learning to cook new things. Latly is breads. !!Challah is driving me crazy!!!I have learned quite a few types (Yay! My tortillas bend now!!) and hopefully before I get too old I will have mastered cooking. Just finished a.. oh 1 and half year trek in to soups. Soups arnt so easy atall. shocked Im excited to delve in to Briskets soon, when the meat is at peak season price. I sense im rambling so...

     LOL, not to get off topic, i was just thinking. How funny
 
When i first began to learn to cook it was so hard and tedious. I would leave room, then come back start again. Over and over, thought for sure house wives must have some super secret class they take, HAHAHAHAHA It was so hard at first, LOL. Now look at me? Too funny
Okay that was all

Dani I do the same thing. But I don't spend that much time in the kitchen. Today I make homemade blueberry muffins and banana bread. But I make most of what we eat from scratch. I want to try pasta sometime I machines look cool.
