I definitely cook becaause I love to create things.

I cook for myself even though half the time I throw left overs out.

When I had a partner it was not quite the same as I felt it was always "expected" of me and doing it every night was not such fun.

Now if I don't feel like it, which happens regularly I think nothing of having a simple meal or a take away.

I have always enjoyed cooking and would ask if I could cook as a child.But I am not fond of recipe cooking.I prefer to create. My son has also cooked since he was a small child,and now he is a chef!!

Yummmmm eeeee!!!!!!
I'd have to say, a little bit of both! I love the creativity of cooking dinner but if I'm in a hurry to get it done and I have children under my feet then it's not my favourite activity.
Both - I do like cooking and creating when there is time, but there are days I'll admit that I'd much rather lounge on the couch and get take away. I usually cook these days anyway, and that's when it feels like a chore.

I don't love cooking - I prefer to eat! - but I do enjoy it. I hate planning what to cook - that's the difficult part!

I have to do it for my own health (can't eat processed food anymore) and am rather reluctant to get going, but once I do, it's fine. My creativity takes over, even if i do the same old things sometimes.
I enjoy cooking over the weekend but on weekdays I do it only because I have to cook for my family. It's tiring to cook and clean on weekdays after a long day at work....not so fun!
Only now because I have too.

I have done a great deal over my life time, so I like to now let others cook for me!

I enjoy it more too :)
I enjoy cooking when I have the time - don't really enjoy it when I have to rush

Well I don't have much of an opportunity now to cook properly..live alone and my friends and I mainly go out to eat at this stage in our lives 60's...for myself I eat quite simply. I would actually relish the opportunity to cook creatively but guess if it was a regular thing (as in a marriage) I would soon get sick of mundane cooking one would prob have to do..

I quite enjoy cooking most of the time. I like creating beautiful, tasty meals for my toddlers to throw on the floor and my partner to complain about 'all the leaves"...Oh well...I enjoy what I cook!
I really enjoy cooking but I'm not a confident cook. If I've never cooked a particular meal before, I like having some guidance or a helping hand but after I've done it once, I'm happy to cook it on my own.
I love the idea of cooking but I have a short attention span and burn everything!

Luckily my partner is a chef.

We had a cafe for a few years, I stayed clear of the kitchen and ran between the coffee machine and the register instead.
Yes, I like to cooking. My family love to eat variety of food. I always try new receipe.I love to create new food.
I Loooove cooking.

Not knowing what to cook every day is what annoys me. But if I cook a meal, I make sure there is enough for the next day to lessen my workload.
Absolutely l o v e cooking. My Mother & her Mother were marvellous cooks. The Dinners my Mum prepared when I had friends' over were 'cordon bleu'. There's a Pre-Ball Dinner that was prepared for my circle of friends'. We still talk about it & that was 1970! It was one of the funniest & best nights I've ever had!

My son was at my side since he was 10, watching me prepare meals. I'd get his help as needed. He's now a Sous Chef, with Patisserie qualifications & a B.Hosp.Mgt.
How proud I am of him!

I enjoy cooking for the 2 of us, but would be far to nervous cooking for visitors. I use a different recipe each night.When I made them from cook books, I’d date each one, so I wouldn’t make that 1 again for at least 12 months. Now I mostly look them up on line every day, then write them onto a list I keep in ‘save draft’ with the date I made it. I’ve been able to do this, because I haven’t had to go out to work for 42 & 1/2 years! The only time I don’t have to cook is when we go on another cruise! The longer the better! We did dine out for our birthday dinners though, so that was nice. We were able to take a short walk to our local restaurant, from our house. Great food.
