    When I worked full time, most of my co workers LOVED my homemade breads, others LOVED my green beens & ham hocks, others LOVED my homemade cakes !! Noone has ever "died" from my cooking !! When I left home I could hardly use a can operner !! In one week I had the "basics" down .. GRADUALLY I( learned everything from moe "experienced \" cooks !!

    At least I've had people say so. I like it better than baking, where you have to follow a recipe...too much like a chemistry experiment.

    while i've always been a good cook (thanks to my mom who had me in the kitchen w/ her since i was very little and to my aunt who showed me some more tricks of the trade later on) i am finally getting paid to make food for a living!!!
    i've worked in food service for years - waiting tables, hostess, catering server - but i'm actually preparing food all day at my restaurant now and i love it.
    i contemplated going to culinary school once upon a time but w/ 2 small children and no support from the (now ex) husband to pursue my career it never happened. i've worked my way up through hard work and showing what i'm capable of (and lots of patience) and now i'm in the kitchen FT making food all day.
    1 day w/ what i learn where i am, i hope to move along to somewhere nicer but you gotta start somewhere!!!

    I rock the kitchen every day at home... and my children (19 and 16 year old boys) love dinner time at home. we rarely eat outside the house because i make it better!!! and there's always room at the table for 1 more... friends are always coming over and i love it that way. i can't imagine not being a good cook and raising a family. it just took time and dedication like anything else. there's many a good website and cook book and even free ones to borrow from the library if you're a ...

    it's sad how many people are being raised on fast food or frozen entrees because their parents CHOOSE not to prepare a home cooked meal.

    I work in the hospital but I cater on the side, used to do it for fun. This year someone asked me to do a couple of dishes for a 25 year anniversary, and since then I'm cooking and getting paid.

    What hate are you talking about? Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean he hates you. I see intolerance and hate on the side that is persecuting Mr. Cathy for believing in the traditional definition of the word "marriage". I don't see Mr Cathy hating or persecuting anyone. Does he not have first amendment rights in your world?
