Cooking is a new skill for me. When I was in my 20s I didn't like it too much because I thought, if I knew how to do it, then my family would expect me to do it. But now and I'm in my late 30s and once I got over that thought and started experimenting, I found it very relaxing and creative. It became a nice complement to my excellent entertaining skills. I used to always cater my gatherings until I realized that easy and tasty recipes were far more appreciated by friends that anything they could go get at a restaurant.
