I love cooking as a hobby!!! It soothes my mind. It's even better than yoga. :-) To me there's nothing better than running across a new interesting recipe and then successfully putting my spin on it. I love to see people ooh and ahh over a dish I cooked: go back for seconds and then ask for the recipe. I do, however, hate the drudgery of cranking out something for the family to eat everyday. I have the utmost admiration for moms and dads who cook on a daily basis without a murmur of complaint.
