Most people, when they are under stress, either gain or lose weight. My weight is always the same; my mental health is reflected in my freezer--when it is full, I know I need to fix something in my life. I play with food in proportion to the stress in my life. I rarely eat because I am hungry; I need to tempt myself.
I live alone and when I cook, I feed the neighbors; I've rationalized it to them that you can't make a bowl of soup; you have to make a pot of soup. Can't make A cookie; you have to bake a BATCH of cookies. (They love me.)
Also, way, way back in my first go-round as a single, I learned to treat myself as a guest. One evening, I was grilling a rack of lamb (encrusted with garlic and rosemary) and one of my neighbors walked by and asked me if I cook that way when it is only me. My answer, "Well, if I don't do it, who will?"
It is a good thing for me when, after a long or bad day, I take my time to sip a glass of wine and enjoy something that someone (being ME!!) took the time to make for me. As if I were a guest.
Now, what to do with all of the soup and cookies in the freezer . . . .

I so agree.. you cannot cook a BOWL of soup... I always cook more than I need but I usually have some of my male friends around to help eat. I've learned to freeze...freeze... so that way when people come over, they can eat whatever they want. I have a couple of my male friends staying with me right now and I explained to them, on days I do not cook look in the freezer and just take out what you feel like eating and microwave it or else heat it up on the stove. They've become very good at doing that and this way nothing is ever wasted. One thing I hate to do is waste food. When I cook rice, I always make too much so I can freeze some up for casseroles or other rice dishes.

I absolutely love it... first became interested when I was a teen - I'd come home from school, to watch The Urban Peasant on CBC. I always though he did some great, extremely simple dishes. I then fell in love with just about every single show you can imagine on Food Network, and have been playing around in the kitchen since.

It's such a terrific skill to have; I know a lot of people who can't for the life of them cook pasta let alone attempt anything slighly more complex. Great way to quickly make friends, I tell ya

I love to cook ... but I greatly prefer to cook FOR someone ... I enjoy the praise! when I'm cooking for just me (most the time), I'm grateful ... but it's hard to slap myself on the back for a meal well done!

I really do enjoy it- but at the moment, with 2 kids (1 mine, 1 not) about to sit for their HSC (final exams for school... EVER) its getting tricky. Mine is veggo and picky, the other is carniverous and picky I have a bank of about 10 recipes they want on schoolnights and I'm going with it as they are both pretty stressed at the moment.
When my SO and I get together... we have great fun cooking! We both love fresh and often raw food, plus seafood (not raw!!), and deli treats... I love tweaking recipes but tend not to invent from scratch. At the weekend, even if its just kiddoes and me, I get a little more inventive- they humour me!!
