Come on guys this a damn important question.
I burn things and swear!
The label that feels closest to the truth is ...
Do you get really intense and pretend you are cooking in a competition
and my BF would agree if you asked him
I cook with love.
I put music on and cook seriously.
i get really intense with my cooking (and fancy), which is why i selected the competition option. i've spent 2-3 hours making a meal and days in prep work. i used to make pies to sell and make ends meet, and those would take days to make. make the crust (1 1/2 hours), chill for a few hours or overnight, then make the filling (for squash, it could take another 1 1/2 hours and for apple, almost an hour), then bake it (at least an hour with constant checking). so worth it though.
i cook almost every day. generally simpler stuff, but i love being fancy. :lol:
Speaking of pies, I just made a Strawberry Rhubarb pie that came out great. For some reason I can't cook when someone else is around even if they are just in the other room. I need to be alone to properly get my groove on and cook a meal.
It depends entirely on what you are cooking....
I'm a good cook and make most of my meals. I don't usually follow recipes (except for baking) since I often make stuff I've done before. Sometimes I use recipes for reference to make something new and combine them to suit my taste. Even with baking though I know some things that can be adjusted or added like extracts, chocolate chips and nuts. I'd love to cook for a guy although cooking for too many people is stressful to me. Last night I made a pork loin, zucchini and potatoes on the grill. Yum, leftovers for a few nights
It's a mash-up between "Do you get really intense and pretend you are cooking in a competition" and "Put it in the oven and let the oven do all the work for you". It depends on what it is I'm cooking. I become easily overwhelmed and stressed in the kitchen, so I guess I take that shit quite seriously. But I voted "put it in the oven"
call me fake but I use the nuwave or microwave
My cooking's shit. I can make scrambled eggs in the microwave.
I'm undecided to pick up "sing and dance while doing it" (it happens, if i listen to stuff like Michael Jackson or Queen while cooking ) or "pretend i'm on a competition"
Seriously, I like to take my time and cook well with love.
Me too! It's so frustrating.
I miss the "i only know the microwave" option or "I let food deliver to me."
It's just no fun to cook for 1 person aka myself.
With a microwave. Seriously, I don't feel like spending half an hour cooking when I'm hungry NOW.
I was going to say 'angrily and badly'...don't know why that wasn't an option to be honest.
Put on music and throw down.
I catch things on fire. So I have others cook for me. The last time I tried to make something, I caught the recipe paper on fire....
I sit back and watch my siblings burn things. But i'm a good enough noodle to help wash the dishes afterwards~
Either that, or it's a heated (get it?? huuuh??) battle with the microwave.
