I posted this in mature cause well- I feel cooking is a mature subject. Lately in the past year since March as I finally have my own kitchen I have found myself cooking more than I ever did in the past. For example, last night I cooked up pork chops, mashed potatoes from scratch and green beans.
Sunday night, I made for the first time ever home-made mac and cheese- which has LONG since been a favorite of mine. My mom gave me recipies to try and I have come to the conclusion I LOVE COOKING!
I have also made my own pizzas including stuffed crust ones- using cheese sticks as the filing and I LOVE cooking chicken.
I have lost 20lbs since I started cooking my own foods. No longer do I use TV dinners, canned pasta and the like. I will admit sometimes I use a frozen pizza for times when I am tired or lazy but those days are rare.
SO- my question to ADISCers is this- do you cook your own foods too? And if so, do you feel a sense of pride when you do?
Also, what are your favorite things to cook? I'm really curious about this!
P.S.: The reason I am a latecomer in cooking is cause I lived for sixteen years in a small studio apartment that had no kitchen! So I feel like- well- I've ARRIVED!!!!
