    As the title says..

    I used to really enjoy cooking, now I just leave it to the mrs, I used to cook your standard britishes dishes but would always put my own spin on it, which mainly involved alot of spice. Spicey cottage pie FTW!

    Not as much as eating but in the future I have few goals in life that I'd be disappointed to not achieve. Learn how to play a musical instrument, another language and be a really good cook

    I do like to cook every now and then, but as its just for one, i tend not to do much. I cook for my dinners at work, which is basically a massive pan of curry, freeze it then take it in etc.

    I did sweet and sour chicken once, from scratch. Everything was going great till i needed to add the cornflour, I missed the bit about adding a bit at a time and chucked the lot in. It went like a block within a few seconds so didnt really get to enjoy it as i should. I will do it again one time as fresh home cooking is something else entirely, pity it can get messy and take so long.

    I have started doing home made pizza, which i love. I had to, i cant get enough of it but i want to cut down on gluten badly and stop buying pizza from domioes. I now make them gluten free at a fraction of the price and they taste decent as well

    I love cooking but since living in Asia for the past 3 years I just dont do it anymore. Food is so accessible and cheap here it actually works out cheaper to eat out than cook. Heading back to the UK next month so will be digging out my apron and cooking a few meals for the family that's for sure.

    In the north of Thailand, in the city of Chiang Mai, there's food sold on every street corner at all hours of the day here. Asian eating style isn't like ours, they don't tend to sit down for 3 specific meals a day but tend to eat more smaller meals throughout the day as and when they feel hungry and sharing is a big part of meal times if they do cook at home.

    I love cooking. We have just started doing the Hello Fresh boxes which are really good fun.
    £50.00 a week but we have found that we dont actually go to Tesco / Sainsbury etc and just buy crap.

    Also have a Thai cooking class lined up for August which should be great.

    I do but I'm low skill. I can't make many dishes but its something I need to sort because anyone who can cook well really impresses me

    So I was at a friends birthday BBQ on Saturday, I ended up cooking and both the birthday boy and my best mate both came up and thanked me for cooking as it meant it was actually cooked properly.

    I love cooking bbq :)

    Bbq is great, I keep meaning to pick those jack Daniels wood chips up to see if they are any good. I think they might be old barrels minced up, sweet!
