How do you motivate yourself to cook after a hard day at work?


My job isn't even that difficult and there are days I come home with no motivation to cook. I know anything I make will taste better than carry out or frozen dinners, so why do I drag my feet? What do you do to convince yourself the effort is worth it?

    I'm the same way about starting projects. I usually have a general plan of what I'm going to make, but I think putting it in writing would help. Thanks!

    Baking seems to be a general trend here, and it's something I don't do as much of. I do a lot of my cooking on top of the stove. I think it's time to switch things up!

    What do you put on your chicken breast? I seem to always have dry chicken when I bake it in the oven.
