How do you make green beans delicious? I need some good recipes for them. Will they keep in the fridge for a few days after I've cooked them a bit?

Risotto, especially if I have a problem at work I need to solve. 30 minutes of stirring nearly always does the trick!
Bread, especially if stressed, but not angry!
Stirfries
Chocolate truffles (except I don't do sweet cookery anymore)

Favorite things to cook are sauces for our meals - I love to experiment with spices, veggies and smokey peppers.

I like to cook anything that doesn't have too much clean up. For that reason soups and casseroles are great because you usually have to use only 1 or 2 pans. I don't have a grill so that rules out grilling for me.

I also like cooking slow cooked dishes that you can smell 2 floors down. I love just sitting down and reading a book while the entire apartment is filled with the smells of dinner. It's my own pouperie.

I agree that it’s not so much what you’re cooking as the process of it. My favorite cooking is when everything flows well… the ingredients come ready to hand seemingly without effort (the right thing in the right amount is in the pantry or fridge) and all the fresh ingredients are laid out on the counter to admire while you easily find the favorite knife which is right where is should be, and the favorite cutting board and skillet are NOT still dirty in the dishwasher. The salt doesn’t spill, the cat stays out from underfoot, the phone doesn’t ring… each step in the process is done just as the next should begin and the whole thing is like the ballet…

The things I cook most often are stir-fries and quick pasta dishes.
