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 cooking for friends and family. I especially like cooking for a special lady. I don't just replicate recipes...I make my own. Sometimes I remember to write them down, sometimes they are a one time thing. I don't use measuring cups or spoons, everything is by feel and taste. I've been told many times that I should write a book and who knows maybe some day I will. For now though, I cook for those that are close to me. I find it incredibly relaxing.....a huge stress reliever. It can also be the start to the perfect romantic evening. Food can be incredibly sexual.

YES! I also find cooking very good for stress. I love seeing people's reaction to what I cook or bake. I love smelling the spices and mixing up new things to try a new flavor in foods. Food can be so comforting, I love making someone feel comforted with a home cooked meal. <3

Amen to that :)

I'd cook for you anytime Sunshine :)

What's your pleasure? :)

That I could do with one arm tied behind my back :)

So.....when can I expect you? :)

Not married

I am not a chef but have cooked in restaurant for 30 years. it is indeed very relaxing and extremely gratifying especially when people recognize and appreciate your talent! I rarely messure except for in some baking and bread making where measurements are crucial.i THINK ANY GOOD COOK SHOULD ALWAYS MAKE RECIPES THEIR OWN .i love making comfort food what is your speciality?

I make really good souvlaki, sate and the best guacamole. Most of my recipes evolve over the years.

That usually means that you are wearing your hats too tight. lol

You are clearly insane :P
