I love to bake but really don’t like to cook. Before I had to option to stay at home my husband did all the cooking and that was wonderful. Now I feel like I should cook since I am at home all day and so I end up doing most of the cooking now. My dh would cook if I would let him but for some reason I feel like he shouldn’t have to since he is away at work all day. I know, call my crazy I would bake every day if I wouldn’t be 500 pounds from eating it all. I really enjoy baking but don’t do too much of it anymore. Really who has time while chasing around toddlers So how about the rest of you, are you bakers or cooks or neither??
I voted for cooking! Something is wrong with the temperature control on my oven, and I’ve been burning all my baked goods lately! I had a cake this weekend that called for it to be baked 28 minutes. After 15, I could smell it burning!! The stove top has been my better suit lately!!
I voted for baking. My grandma was a serious baker. Everyday she would bake something new ( she and my grandfather raised me so I was there everyday! ) but for dinner we would have easy dinners – such as pastas, sandwiches and soup, salad and potatoes, etc. Then we would have great desserts and fresh bread. I have to admit I take after her. I have to be a little more skillful with the cooking than what I perfer to be to keep DH happy. Stephanie, my DH is a better cook also, but for the same reason as you I do the cooking – besides if we waited to have dinner until he got home we would be eating after 9:30! Erica
