Yes, it stems from the fact we both worked (my Wife and I) and whoever got home first would begin to start the meal.
I am pleased that I can cook a proper meal not just fast food.
Learning the timing of things was the main thing (Meat Vs. vegetables etc.)
Washing up, well that is another story!
Yes, I love it, particularly when I teach my young grandsons how to cook, and they love it (4 and 6 years old) and we've been doing it for a while now. They enjoy their father coming home and opening tbe door to lovely smells.
I enjoy cooking but I wouldn't say I love it. I do love eating good food though. I also tend to cook better food than I can get in many a restaurant, so when it comes to cooking the ends justify the means.
Yes, i love to cook.I look up a new recipe every night, 6 nights a week, & don't re-use that recipe, for at least 12 months. before my laptop, I'd look up my recipes in my cook books, & then date the ones I used. (On the 7th night we have a salmon cutlet, which is just cooked on the stovetop, without a recipe!)
