I love to cook and do so whenever I'm home. I'm an over-the-road trucker and run from MN to So. CA and back, usually out 1 to 1.5 mos., then home until I feel like getting back on the road. I've always thought that one would make a good cook if one likes to eat. Conversely, if you don't care what you eat, only that you're not hungry, you'd probably not make that great a cook. And I Love to eat, therefore . . . .
