of course cooking is important. to me, it is a skill in life. lol out of all my cousins, i'm the best "chef."

my parents always used to tell me to learn how to cook because one day i'll have to cook for my own family. lol all they ever thought about was how i'll need it after marriage. but i always did watch. i mean.. you don't have to cook things you don't like to cook.
i started off by cooking my boxed items.. lol kraft mac & cheese. i started off by learned how to use the stove top.. oven.. toaster.. etc.
and then from their i started challenging myself.. cooking home made foods. i even bought cook books.
then.. i took the challenge to cook indian food. lol i'm not a big fan of indian food. i'm waay to picky. soo i only make things i eat.
i even make roti. lol i can never make an exact 360 degree roti like my mom haha.. but atleast it tastes good and all. Tongue

i guess you should start off like that.
you can't expect to have your parents cook in the future.. unless your hubby happens to be a chef. and you really can't expect to eat fast foods and restaruant foods forever.
soo try little steps at a time.
it might be cause cooking is my hobbie.. but try. Smile

hey radhika...i am an absolute brilliant cook.....ok enough of my praises but really cooking is like my passion.....its an amazing feeling when someone genuinely praises ur food....i mean its ok that you hate to cook its not a crime!!! i mean i understand standing in kitchen it can be a bit hot a bit too hot!!!at times...nd u get tired standing up....u just want to sit down for a bit nd chill....but u knw when you cook and no one ever bother praises it i just stop cooking for a while and then amaze everyone with my food!!!!!! am not really sure what to write ......i mean cooking is damn important part of will have to learn it one day or the other....suppose you go to a uni abroad..or a different city and trust me we can't survive on junk or outside for long....and its not the healthiest option of all!!!!!!!
i mean u r really young don't bother listening to your mom you will learn cooking wih tym!!!! dont worry!!!!! just sit nd me its a gr8 feelin wen ma sis kooks nd i just sit down n eat!!!!!!! so njoy it while u can!!!!!!!

Cooking is very important.  They start this in school in these days.  Even boys cook.  Outside food is not nutritious all the time and contains preservatives.  Its ok occasionally.  Also what if someone has allergies to certain foods?  It is important that everyone learns to cook.Tongue
