In Bursts

I enjoy cooking, but I will go for long periods of time without wanting to.  I can't bake to save my life, except for macaroons, and I don't think that really counts as baking, lol.  Except for a few basic meals, I usually need a cookbook.  I get really into it when I do.  I put on music, and bounce around in between chopping.  I really enjoy cooking for other people, but have only ever had two "dinner parties", and they were more hilarious than delicious.  For one, I cooked an elaborate couscous with some kind of veggie combo, and a black olive tapenade/bruschetta (my guests were vegetarian.).  The problem was that at the time, my apartment was the sweltering top-floor of a Brooklyn brownstone in the middle of summer, so all of that hot food just wasn't appetizing.  To top things off, I wanted to serve ice-cream sandwiches for dessert, but my refrigerator decided to break, so instead, we had ice cream soup with cookie mush, lol.  Typical!  I dream of cooking for a boyfriend again.  I was pretty good at making the occasional treat.

You should try baking bread. It is very forgiving. And if you have a good stand mixer it can do all the kneading for you.

Do you still live in New York? What was that like?

who said anything about microwaves????!!!!

wow all i can find is microwave women LOL<br />
<br />
i dont do microwaves.........

We do have the best of both worlds here......small town with easy access to walks and countryside but also accessible to larger cities if need be!<br />
<br />
If only my personal life was so ideal life would be great!!! the uni cities and some small ones more locally.....

Trains best I reckon in this case.....though only one an hour in one direction, two an hour in the other, depending on which uni....

Near enough!..... We are ideally situated for commuting...

Ok ...we have a sofa bed you can crash on while you are house hunting .......we are in a beautiful part of the country .....

Sounds goooood!......will have to change the dressing , can't have the orange, but I love mustard! mmmmm <br />
<br />
Are you coming here to cook for me or shall I come to you? : )

Not necessarily.......I was for years but have dropped it now, became too sensitive to a lot of the veggie ingredients...<br />
<br />
Something "vegetabley" would be good to counteract the stodge of the past few days I reckon.....with a bit of a tang to it!

mmmm struggling to think......depends so much on time of year, how hungry I am, what mood I'm in ....gosh I'm sounding fussy here!! I'd like to try new things actually, I'm getting a bit in a rut .....surprise me! : )<br />
<br />
Bit "sensitive" to wheat and dairy....(and alas, bananas and oranges so will be difficult I know).......but you can come up with something I'm sure.....

Oo come and cook for me...I'm right off it at the moment!
