I just finished reading "Comfort Food" by Kate Jacobs (great book btw). Anyway, one of the questions posed by her main character is "Do you really love to cook or to eat?" - meaning that each of us who loves food has a preference deep down.
I thought it was a great question, and one I'd never thought of.
So.....cooking or eating?? Me, I'm a cooker (but will never turn down good food - lol). Cooking calms me, and I love to feed the people in my life.
