Do you like the way your food tastes?

I have a terrible problem of not liking what I'm cooking. Not that it tastes bad. I get tons of compliments and cleared plates. I think because I'm standing there smelling it the whole time, my senses get tired of it. Yet, if I make a roast or something in the slow cooker, I love it.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Yes, I don't eat on the holidays. After I've been making the food for 2 days, smelling it and having it waft through the house, I'm just not interested in eating it. I do enjoy the leftovers though.

Not me. I think if I didn't like what I was cooking, I'd stop cooking When I'm smelling it while it's cooking, I'm anticipating eating it and can't wait till it's ready

So not me. I knock people over on the way to the table. (Just kidding) I love what I cook, becuase I cook what I love. Hey that is gonna look good in a signature somewhere.

Anyhow, the only thing that is not my favorite time in the kitchen is when it is Clean the Frig Night. Other than that, I love being in the kitchen, and my most favorite time is when our fresh bread is baking.. Who can resist the smell of fresh baking bread. And I can barely keep my daughters hands off the bread so the bread can cool enough to be cut properly.

I'm an awful lot like GotGarlic. I do enjoy what I prepare but I didn't always like the food I prepared. I used to strongly dislike my cooking.

I've looked back to see why and discovered that it was a time when I was simply cooking to live/survive and doing it in a large quantity to feed a big family. More like cooking for an army. I cooked it, it got inhaled at mealtime and I did it all over again for the next meal. Not that those who ate it didn't like it, they loved it.

It took several years before I began to enjoy the fruits/veggies/entrees of my efforts. Now I love being in the kitchen.

LOL - Folks, it's not what or how I'm cooking. The problem is, I'm smelling and tasting the food/sauces, etc., but when I sit down to eat it, I'm not excited about it anymore. Know what I mean?

Guess I wasn't too clear. During my "mess hall" cooking time, I really didn't like how my food tasted. I just didn't like my cooking. I ate because I had to to live, but I didn't like it.
