I just got done making myself some scrambled eggs. What do you all like to make to eat? Assuming you cook, that is. <=P

I like to bake cookies.
And make pasta. Pasta is the best thing that ever happened to mankind. Sauces, soups, etc. i cook a LOT.
Favorite thing to make?
hm. Probably a crazy thing that i call "Three noodle insano ramen chicken noodle soup."
But I can actually make stuff that requires skill if i feel like it.

A pound of taco seasoned ground beef, mixed with a can of refried beans, mixed and cooked together with various spices, eaten with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream on tortilla chips is really good, and it could last me two or three meals. Or burritos if I don't have any chips are good.

A box of hamburger helper without the hambuger suffices for a meal.

The occasional calzone, though I still don't have a good recipe.

Hamburgers cooked in a sauce made up of mostly worsteshire sauce, and a few random ingredients and spices mixed in.

Waffles, pancakes, bacon and eggs (usually scrambled and in a flour tortilla with cheese and ketchup).

I still need to find something that I like in fruits and vegitables, aside from salads.

I myself don't do a lot of cooking (in fact, I hate doing it), but my little sister LOVES it. She cooks (pretty much on a daily basis) cookies, pastas, seafood, swiss on rye . . . and a lot more that I can't think of right now. But myself, about all I like to make (because it's all I can) is toast.

I love making Victoria sponge cakes - I design and make my own birthday cake every year.

For my tenth birthday, I designed and made (with my mother's help back then) a butterfree cake with a marbled-blue icing background.

Tasted nice too.

Other than that, I scramble eggs, make bacon sandwiches, simple things that will keep me alive in Uni.

i don't like cooking half as much as i like baking, though it's rare that i get the chance to do either - our fridge is jam-packed with stuff you can have ready in three minutes by just shoving it in the microwave; the pantry's pretty much bare, nothing there but packages of ramen (that srsly need to be thrown out, ew) and canned goods. i'd have to go shopping before i cooked or baked anything. D:

i'm not a very..experienced cook. all i really know how to make is mac n cheese, nachos and chicken noodle soup. i don't find cooking enjoyable in the least. it seems more like a chore, if you ask me. the only reason i would cook for myself is if i was worried about how much i was snacking recently, and if i ran out of individual pizzas.

baking is a lot funner (and more rewarding imo). cookies, cupcakes, scones - you name it, i can make it..yeah, okay, probably not, but still. i don't mind the wait while it's in the oven, and the results are always delicious. <3

my favorite thing to bake are the hershey's best brownies (i obviously have an all-chocolate cookbook ;p). they are fudgey and soft and chocolaty and utterly SCRUMPTIOUS. if i could, i'd bake some right now and send all of you a piece. here's a link to the recipe, if you're interested.

I make salads like knowbodiiz bwuiznez. and dressings too. Other than that, I do a lot of sandwiches, tuna variations, sauces, pasta, and experimental cereal designs.

Carefully and meticulously microwaved eggs scrambled with a small portion of sliced cheese placed on top. Toast is then placed in the toaster at a random setting (This way, it's always a surprise! I like to spice up my life, you see) and they are done at approximately the same time.

Another classic of mine is my 'il hot dog in la microwave', where a frozen hot dog is carved from the depths of the freezer and placed on a small plate. It is then put in the microwave for forty seconds, where its veil of ice (and occasionally pieces of ice-cream that stuck to it in the freezer) comes off to reveal a steaming, ready hot dog. From there it is placed onto a piece of bread with tomato sauce poured onto it.

DEVINE.

For those who don't know, I used to be a cook, so I actually do enjoy cooking to an extent, despite not being so great at it. My meals are usually cheap and simple since food is expensive, and after work, I don't prefer to plan much time for cooking since I have plenty of other things I should be doing. Sometimes I attempt different things in the cooking process of simpler meals off the top of my head, but often they don't work well. However, I do all right off recipe cooking and have on occasion made something that turned out well I thought up.

There's nothing in particular that I enjoy cooking more than another. It's usually just something that I'd like to try to make that I haven't yet, if I can afford to, or something I know I can make and have before. Most of the time I'm not prepared to make anything special and I end up eating chips, cereal, or mac and cheese.

I'm really bad at cooking really fancy meals but I like to make Ramen noodles (real traditional Japanese Ramen not from a cup Ramen) and chicken filled dumplings. The dumplings are so yummy and filling and together with the Ramen and a nice glass of Tea it's definitely one of my favorite meals.

Hmm. Real Ramen is great, but from a cup/package ramen isn't bad either. I've always tried to avoid chicken filled pastas. There is just something wrong with the idea of ground chicken. But ground beef, some ginger juice, sesame oil and soy sauce, shove that into wontons and it's amazing.

Yay for tea!

I like making cookies. Anzac Biscuits, though messy and expensive, are made of win.
I love all sorts of pastas; spaghetti, ravioli, anything. Load it up with cheeses and meat.
I like waffles.
On the subject of breakfast items, omelets are always good.

But, the best of all has to be anything cooked over fire. Steak, burgers, brats, doesn't matter. Give me a hole in the ground, some wood, and a grate to set over it, and I'll cook all you want. Just don't pester me about how much longer, or I'll throw you in to feed the fire.

I'm a boy, but I'm being trained by my Mum to cook....yaya Cooking isn't just for Gals, but it's just wierd in the current society...My father works and my Mum does the Housework....it's just plain weird to have it the other way round...

Anyway, looks like she isn't a bad "teacher". I've learnt how too Cook better than all my Classmates...anyway, I like to cook Stir-Fried Dumplings and Burgers....they're so easy to make and they're delicious. :lol:

HOT! )

Let's see... Spagetti, Burger,Omelete du Fromaurge, Strognoff, Fry Chicken, Rice (with lot's of garlic,potatoes and peas!), Meat (especially Steak and Bacon), the life saver for all times Cup Ramen...

And some Cakes and other sweets...

Those "complete meal" things that you just have to add water to and throw in the oven. <3

I cook steak, grilled chicken, fried chicken, pastas, hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheeses, meat for tacos, dumplings and a whole lot of other stuff. I love to cook. The last time I tried to cook eggs, they stuck. That was a few years ago though.
