OK, I guess I'm not a Chef as I voted in the poll. I'm just a home cook. Altho', since I'm still working at the nursing home & running the kitchen in the evenings, maybe I am a chef. But, is a nursing home kitchen a "professional" kitchen? Who knows & who really cares?

I like to be able to play around. Cooking is very flexible. Baking is more strict - you have to play by the rules to make things turn out right, for the most part.

I am always baking cakes, cookies, and pies for friends, family, and coworkers. So, guess I am a baker. But mainly I just like to prepare food that other people would enjoy. Another category that I have fun with is dips and appetizers. When I get invited to a party I always ask if I can bring an appetizer or two.
