Why I Like Cooking

Cooking is life

Why I Like Cooking
Fish Monger Media

I like cooking. For one thing, I like eating the food I cook. It gives me something to do when I'm extremely bored.

I like experimenting when it comes to making different dishes. I use different fruits and vegetables, spices and herbs when I'm cooking. I also like baking cookies and cakes (although it has been a very long time since I have).

It is really fun when you are able to eat what you make, and not always rely on eating fast food or takeout. The best thing about cooking is that you can find so many recipes of different dishes on the internet. A person who cooks can also measure how much sugar or salt they want in something, and can also keep count of how many calories they are consuming.

I am glad that I can make dishes for myself and the people around me. It brings people together, as more than one person can like the same meal. We always seem to like Grandma's famous Apple Pie. Cooking literally brings back memories.

Cooking foods also introduces you to different cultures, since many people cook food based on particular customs. For example, sushi is made in Japan, and is very much liked around the world.

When a person learns to cook, especially with someone, you learn about whether the person likes very spicy or mild food. For example, when my dad cooks, he likes to make the food really spicy, and with my mom it is a little milder. I've discovered I am more of a spicy food person when eating and cooking.

I think the most awesome thing about being the chef in your home is that you can lick the spoon after everything is done. And you get to hit the hands of people who like to steal food LOL.

Cooking food brings happiness not only to the tummy but to the heart as well, since we all have our favorites. I have so many foods I like, that I can't decide on a particular type of food. I always seem to cook something new, or add variations to old recipes. There's just so much to say about cooking!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
