I love cooking!!! I don't always have a ton of time for it, but I do love it! I don't do too much in the way of baking, an occassional dish here and there. HUGE Rachel Ray fan! LOL, in fact hubby and son call me Rachel sometimes
making mac and cheese, quicky things like that. I guess I don't consider it cooking and figure if someone wants it, then can make it themselves and not bother me
I don't like peeling potatoes either, but I don't mind the cutting or chopping of foods.
I am anal about cleaning as I go, I guess b/c I can't leave the prep dishes b/c I'd have a swarm of cats on the counter the minute I'd walk away :-) And since no one helps me clean up, I just got into the routine of putting a dish or utensil in the dishwasher as soon as I used it. That way I'm not trying to put it all away when the food is getting ready to go on the table.
