Yes, I love to cook at home, in fact I cook for my family most of the times, I use to cook dinner almost every day, I'm not a professional but my relatives said I do it really well.
I never buy fasten food, frozen or precook food because I think it's not healthy at all, I rather prefer use fresh ingredients and some vegetables grown in my garden to make fresh salads and home made food, but sometimes I do buy some frozen meat though.
It's difficult to know the conditions in which most of the canteens or shops make the food they sell, sometimes they use to include ingredients that are nearly out of date.
Definitely my favorite recipe to cook potatoes is the mashed potatoes, I use to mash them with olive oil, salt, some milk, garlic and a bit of marjoram. Delicious!

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!!

The situation is completely different here in my country, mothers always cook and we sometime buy takeaway food from canteens.

The majority of times my parents cook especially my father, He is a great cooker, but when I’m alone I cook simplest meals like pasta with tuna and mashed potatoes or things like that. Potatoes are one of my favorite foods, so I like them in various ways like fries with ketchup or roast but I prefer them mached because they are more healthy.

Actually I do not cook at in home . sometimes i cook simple meals like eggs my mother often cook . yes I eat a lot outside maybe fast food usually .
I prefer fried potatoes I know it is not healthy but I love it ymm

I used to cook for me and my classmates for about 5 years and I still know how to prepare a lot of delicious meals. However, nowadays I eat in a canteen at my university.

Well!I rarely cook at home,I live with my parent,so normally I do not need to cook.I love baked potatoes with cheese.

I don’t know about cooking so much. I cook very often.I love chicken.Sometimes i hangout with my friends and we eat various type of food.I like fries potato.

Yes i love cooking, specially chicken item.
Sometimes i buy fast food item but don't like it that much.I like home made food cause it is tastier and healthier.
I like fried potatos with some salt and red Chili powder, its yummy!

I'm a food lover. I like homemade food. Though I'm not expert in cooking but I can manage to cook which is worthy to eat.

i like junk foods.I also cook food in my home.but i like fried chicken most.
