Do you cook? Do you enjoy it? Do you burn every meal? etc.


I cook things for myself but don't ask me to host a big dinner party or anything because sadly I'm not very advanced in terms of experimenting with cooking up something really impressive or exotic. I'd really love to be! While I don't particularly enjoy the process of cooking much anymore (I used to love it, and still remember the day I fried my first egg as a kid), I do almost always enjoy my own meals, although occasionally things go wrong too. Pasta is one of my favourites so I cook that a lot, also I still end up putting egg on everything, haha.

Maybe someone should share a recipe as well lol kink.gif

I really love baking cupcakes and cookies etc, and I'm quite good at those kink.gif

However I am AWFUL at making main meals. I lack so much motivation to do them and always panic, especially when cooking raw meat. I'm too scared to usually even cook bacon for myself! When I make my own meals it's usually salads or something I can just mix together easily, which can't really go wrong :') It is true what they say though, things do taste better when you've made them yourself! (as long as it's gone successfully of course...)

I was pretty good at cooking at school and enjoyed it but for some reason I just stopped altogether and my skillz are not really up to scratch these days at all oops. My current eating habits are terrible and I'll more often than not just make stuff that is quick and easy. I should probably change this sometime soon!

I used to be very poor and somehow went through my whole university experience without learning how to cook. This was mainly a mix of eating out a lot, learning how to live on the basics and befriending a girl in first year who lived with me through to third year who would very often KINDLY COOK FOR ME. It's only really been the past two to three years I've got a bit more adventurous and would now say I'm more than adequate. I cook all my own meals for myself and whilst not EXCELLENT I'm certainly NOT HALF BAD.

I'm an awful cook, I burn microwave popcorn, toast and even pop tarts or toasting waffles which literally get heated for like 20-30 seconds unsure.gif I can make a good stir-fry and I recently made a really nice chicken and chorizo tagliatelle though,Cameron even said it was good ohmy.gif so I can chuck things in a pan and call it a meal but yea I don't trust myself cooking raw meat either unless it's sausages or bacon, I can't actually fry an egg mellow.gif I always end up burning the bottom but the yolk is still raw, so if I ever cook eggs it's scrambled laugh.gif

I rely on things I can either microwave or stick in the oven mostly kink.gif

I can cook the standard basic meals you need to survive at University but a foodie I am not.

I hated food technology at school as I always made a universal mess up each year whether it be forgetting to add sugar to muffins, not using the right quantities of veg or making custard wrong laugh.gif although saying that I'd definitely got better at cooking since coming to uni and my friend from my course is half Thai and has taught me a series of rice, curry and noodle dishes which are now a staple part of my diet so it is all groovy really!

I enjoy cooking and I'd like to think I'm not bad at it. This is prior to living independently though, I don't like washing up and I don't really have the resources or space to do any cooking anymore but I'd love to follow recipes. Now it's all just microwave ready meals/meat in the oven/noodles and soup in the pan.

Gotten pretty good at it (I think). I took a catering GCSE and did work experience in a pub which helped. I make chillis, lasagne and bolognese a lot (fairly simple once you've done them a couple of times), chicken curries, mac & cheese, stir fries, if I want a lighter meal I might get fish and do some roasties with it, every now and again I'll get a steak and make mash with it. I like making cottage pies/ shepherds pies/ fish pies because they're amaze too. I've been making a lot of pasta bakes recently (so easy, just literally put pasta (uncooked!), tomato based sauce of your choice and enough boiling water to immerse everything then add something else, usually protein (I like putting in sliced up sausage for example, tuna's another good one) into a large baking tray/ dish then put it in a 200 degrees oven for 45 minutes or so. You can also add garlic and other veg if it takes your fancy.

Weirdly, I've found (well it was a suggestion originally) that cinnamon works really well with a lot of things, especially chicken. And pasta. Also general italian herbs, oregano and the like work great with a lot of things. I love spices and herbs, should collect some more really, just not sure if I want to spend the thyme or money.

I also like baking, made a cake last week and flapjacks this week, as long as you follow the specifications ( laugh.gif ) it should turn out pretty well. With cooking you can experiment a lot, with baking experimentation has to be a lot more conservative. It's also time consuming so I don't usually do it that much, but it's nice.

Then of course I'm also sometimes really lazy and just put some bacon on and chips in the oven etc. biggrin.gif

I'm decent at cooking when I remember I've started. I often forget when I've left something in the oven and end up burning it/setting off the fire alarm. laugh.gif I really should try to stop this habit.

lol heehee.gif

I really want to try to expand my cooking skills/knowledge, at the moment I just kind of get by making things I enjoy myself that are easy enough for me to make, but I don't really go out of my comfort zone with it for some reason.

I LOVE (and perhaps live) for cooking. I get stupidly excited over food and spend ages just trawling for recipes to try out.

I've been trying a lot of Asian cuisines of late, it's a lot harder to get right obv but the results are much better, or at least they will be when I finally master it. I have a list of about 20 things I make fairly regularly and I'm always trying to expand it, but Lasagne (obv), Sweet and Sour Chicken, Bolognese etc. are all so satisfying.

The main thing I'm trying to do more is fish, I usually make Salmon once a week and maybe Cod too, but it's getting a bit stale so I've tried a Monkfish Thai Red Curry recently which was a lovely alternative to chicken/beef and seared tuna is obv amazing.

I'm just too funny. happy.gif

I don't consider myself that good though, I'm just sort of winging it and it usually works out. Just give things a go, as long as it doesn't seem ridiculous you should be fine.

One of my housemates has been a chef (sous chef or whatever it's called I think) as a previous job, makes everything annoyingly well. tongue.gif

Get some lettuce and make a salad? Nothing wrong with chicken nuggets on a salad biggrin.gif

I love putting chicken nuggets on a bowl of mashed potatoes with corn and grated cheese, like you get at KFC. That was my favorite thing to eat in uni and now it's my favorite thing to make at home!
