My Mom and Dad taught me how to cook at an early age, I would say around 11 or 12. Fried oysters, bacon and eggs, cornbread, baked grilled cheese and fried chicken were just a few of the first recipes I learned (I'm from the South, can you tell?) Their early teachings cultivated a love of food and of cooking. I'd like to know from whomever answers this forum, can you cook, and if so what do you like to cook the most? If you can't cook, why?
As a Brit growing up in the 70's our food was bland, and I mean bland. Meat and two veg most nights. Then I discovered the galloping gourmet on TV, I've loved cooking ever since and loved trying new things. So, yeah, I can cook.
Yes, I can cook and so can all of my family, we love to sit around a table and eat a meal that one of us has prepared for the rest of us.
I have even cooked pasta for Italians, which was either a brave or foolish thing to do.
My recipes are based on English, Greek and Italian meals. I grow my own fruit and vegetables so some of our meals are based on what is in season here.
Yes, I can cook, but I don't cook every night. I take it you mean, 'cook', and not stick something in the microwave or throw frozen food into a pan.
Most of our meals are Mediterranean style. Lots of fish, fresh veggies, pastas, legumes, breads, fruits. I've learned some traditional Greek dishes from a 100% Greek woman. She doesn't speak English! Her food is amazing.
Like you, I'm a great southern cook. I even have my own cooking website! We also do a lot of BBQing, grilling, and smoking. This weekend, we're having folks over for smoked butts, pork loin, ribs, and sausage by the pool. I'm just getting ready to rub the butts!
I love to cook, too, am from the South and will share more on another day when I have more time. Love your topic and the comments thus far!
Yep, I can cook. Filipino, Asian food, European and of course German as I am living here. I love it when all the family members are at the table telling what they have done for the day. Well, in the Philippines. Germans don´t talk to much at dinner time.
Yes, I can cook. Being a strict vegetarian I cook all vegetarian dishes.
I sure do hope so, it has been paying the bills for the last 10 years
I know how to cook. When I was younger I would help my mom prep things like seafood, vegetables, meat, etc. So I always knew how to do things like peel shrimp or cut bell peppers. I really didn't get into cooking until the summer before my last year of college. I'd make recipes, remember things I grew up with, or just improvise. I don't specialize in anything, I just make what anyone's interested in eating.
I can cook, but tend to stick to the same dishes most of the time, because they are what I do best. Shepherd's pie has to be my best dish.
I love to cook! I started when I was 9 years old, and my first dish was Shrimp Creole. My mother cleaned the shrimp and I did everything else under her direction. My father was a chemist, and I even have a food blog (practical food science, mostly, dealing with the way ingredients combine and what to do with them when you've done it). I was, for a while, a chef in a French restaurant in France. (They told everyone I was kitchen help because they didn't want to admit an American was cooking the meals.)
Yes, and I love it too. I learn by watching my mom cook when I was about 9 years old. At first, I helped her chopped onion and garlic, later on I was cooking on my own. I love discovering new recipes and trying the recipes of other country.
I love it!!! My hobby is doing lot of experiments on various dishes. I do it in those dishes which I know very well to cook. Those who tried my dishes used to say that it is OK, but I rarely like my own creations. Sometimes every thing will come perfect and buy tasting it I experience a sweet rare feeling, may be of satisfaction or proud or something like that. Anyway it is great to know some dishes to cook rather than an omelet. I even published some of recipes through HubPages and this is great community to share articles.
My husband and I both love to cook. I'm the baker and he's the griller. We share time at the stove. I love to try my hand at ethnic foods from other cultures and he excels at down home cooking. We rarely eat out and when we do, I'm always disappointed. It's never as good as home made.

Is it really worth it to cook for just one and if so do you have some recipes to prove it?Cooking for just one (not including the dogs) sometimes just seems like it's not worth it. Although I would love to have some homemade lasagna, meatballs, stuffed pork chops, (ok I have to stop now I'm...

Seriously ... I need help. I can cook anything, providing it's not Portuguese. And I'm about sick of trying to deliver food that is either palatable or doesn't give me cause to up my blood-pressure reading during the cooking process Is anyone on here a good Portuguese cook that's got some handy...

Could you write a hub on side dishes with Rice-A-Roni and vegetables?I add a large sweet onion and sweet pepper to Spanish Rice-A-Roni. I would love to try some of your side dishes with vegetables added to other Rice-A-Ronis.
