    On an impulse, I went off

    and bought all the ingredients I needed to make a savory mediterranean pie. I brought it all home and got started while the sun was shining into my kitchen area. I lovingly chopped the onion, courgettes, mushrooms, red peppers into small chunks, created an aromatic mix in the...

    It's snowing out, big fat flakes.

    ..the perfect day for a big pot of chicken and noodles. Homemade noodles, a rich and savory broth with plenty of chicken and veggies! Since it's simmering on the stove, it leaves the oven free for fresh baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

    I enjoy cooking, I don't like takeaways I hate

    not knowing where my food is coming from. I like to prepare and cook my own food from scratch :)

    Finally got around to cooking the meal

    for the Island night dinner party. Had to wait for pigeon peas and stone ground white corn grits to get here. Started with the idea of Peas and Hominy n Penn On (short for depends on what you have to go with it). This is Turks and Caicos style (TC). Went to Jamaica for a good...

    Ever since I was little I watched my mom,

    dad, and grandma cook all the time. When I was about 7 years old I realized I loved food (to eat it). When I turned 13 years old I realized I liked to cook it. And when I was 15 years old I learned I liked to take pictures of the food when I tried out a new recipes. I absolutely...

    I love cooking! It's a little hard to get done

    with a pair of infants who need attention and are teething in addition to getting housework done. I wish I could cook the meals I grew up eating so unfortunately the stuff I make can be pretty simple. You know, casseroles, pastas, soups, meat dishes with rice & veggie sides...

    It's tricky to follow new recipes sometimes,

    but the real test is to see if the people enjoy it or not O_O. It makes me feel so anxious!!!

    and calming to prepare vegetables and other ingredients for making spaghetti sauce, soups or stews, these are my favorites to cook.

    I'll Do All the Cooking

    I've been cooking virtually my whole life. I come from a family where most of the men know how to cook. I like it so much that I considered going to chef's school. What always stops me is I worry that if it becomes my job then I won't want to do it in my leisure life. I love...

    My mother-in-law taught me this - it's really

    simple and quick and very filling - especially if you're into 'comfort food' like me: Brown up about 1 lb of ground beef in a large skillet (I like 85% lean or better) - drain fat (optional) - then add two cans of condensed vegetable beef soup - mix ground beef and veg. beef...

    I go to market everyday to buy things to cook.

    I prefer to cook from fresh, especially vegetables. I don't like prepackaged vegetables. I do eat meat, but not every day.

    Made some honey garlic chicken tonight

    and it came out amazing!!! I am so happy my cousin gave me the idea. The sauce only consisted of chopped garlic, hot sauce and honey boiled together for about 3 minutes and then glazed over baked or fried wings. It is something all should try if you like wings! :)
