Me I like to cook. Coq au Vin and Spagetti Carbonara are probably the best savoury things that I can cook from scratch. I'd like to learn how to cook more Thai/Indian/Chinese food; I've just moved to an apartment where there is an Asian supermarket across the street, so now I can get all the necessary silly ingredients -- like shrimp paste.
I like baking cakes too. My brownies collect haters (as does my spotted dick and custard).
I love both! I'm unemployed so I spend most of my time cooking and baking and thinking about what I'm going to make next.
I'm good at Morrocan lamb tagine and brownies. But I try something new out at least once a week. I made pizza from scratch the other but yeah it didn't work out. I'm totally obsessed with food n making it. I want to make Malva pudding next, its a South African dessert. I could go on and on. But seriously its keeping me sane and busy while I do nothing with my life. I love it. But I'm also trying to get into shape so lol, I have to be quite careful about what I prepare.
I absolutely love baking and cooking! I really just love the feeling of working to perfect and make something that those that I love will enjoy...not to mention something I enjoy! I love trying new recipes and using unfamiliar ingredients. It is like taking on a challenge.
However, because of depression, I've not been spending much time in the kitchen lately. I still have the desire to just not the motivation. :blank
Anyways, I love all of these answers guys! They're all interesting. Keep 'em coming!!
I love cooking and baking too, when I get the time :-D
Favourite stuff to make is pretty basic: Spaghetti with various sauces; bolognese and neopolitan mostly, chillis, curries, stews, spicy noodle soups, risotto, omelettes...
I'm trying to avoid eating sweet stuff, so cutting down on the baking lately, but my favourites are stem ginger cake, cinnamon rolls and brownies.
I try to experiment sometimes...which is okay with cooking as you can taste and add different things if it's not quite right. But with baking.. well, I've made quite a few odd cakes in my time...
