Hello Emmy Berther,

Welcome to LearnEnglish!

Both of these are grammatically correct. 'Have to' is stronger - it suggests obligation or necessity. 'Should' is weaker and suggests advice.

I cook at home occasionally.

At times, I do also buy takeout. Or eat out at a restaurant. With little kids, and a full time job, it is hard to cook at home everyday.

Jacket potatoes are my favorite. I like a lot of coleslaw, baked beans, and cheese on them. In North America, they are known as Baked Potatoes. And interestingly, people don't put as many toppings on them as they do in UK. Basically, butter and ketchup.
