I cook because I love food. I love to cook it and eat it, and so does my husband. Growing up my father was the real "cook" in the house, my mother did the old standby's. In our house both my husband and I love to cook. We have 3 kids between us and they have varying tastes in food, so trying to find something to please everyone is pretty tough, especially the 2 yr old...some days he hates food, other days he loves it! My greatest pleasures in cooking are sharing with others and having them think whatever it is is the best they have ever eaten.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook most food, but find I do better with appetizers, pasta, and deserts. I tend to leave the meat dishes to my husband, who luckily seems to specialize in them.
