In the summer I have to look for my shoes from time to time. yes, I too have the bad habit of walking inn the kitchen barefoot. Funny it never occured to me how dangerous it is until I saw this thread. With my kids around I guess I have to do something about it if they are to learn from me.I have an annoying habit of singing in the kitchen while cooking. It usually annoys those in the kitchen with me, but I don't mind, I love having the kitchen to myself.

I think that is a GREAT habit actually. Music and food go so well together!

Another barefooter here. I never even thought about it, until I just read this thread!

But, I am waayy too hot-blooded (I'm always the hot one. Can we turn the a/c down?) to not take my shoes off as soon as I get into the house. So, I doubt that's gonna change.

Other than that..... I'm bad about washing my good knives right away. They sometimes sit in the sink for quite a while before I finally clean them and put them away. I know it's bad for them, but sometimes I just get lazy! Bad me.

I am a barefoot, nibbler! Oh the shame... I also tend to really get into my cooking, which makes for a pretty messy kitchen. However I am getting better at the whole 'clean as I go ' thing.

Never had a bout with salmonella? All this spoon/beater licking and raw dough nibbling could result in a major hug with that porcelain bowl.

But hey, life's a risk. Go for it.

I always wear shoes when handling knives or handling heat - I'm a bit paranoid about that! In fact I keep a pair of shoes by the kitchen door for me to put on!

One of my bad habits is not getting all my ingredients ready before I start cooking, then I am whirling like a dervish looking for stuff and then finding out I don't have something and having to improvise. But the best dishes are cooked like that aren't they? Necessity being the mother of invention and all that!

I used to be a nibbler of raw dough etc (now I don't bake) must have done that for over 20 years, and I never contracted salmonella.......cast iron tummy!
