I'm one of those folks who CAN cook but doesn't really like to. I must be OK at it, I've never made anyone skinny yet (including myself)! I grew up on a farm in the Midwest, so I've got some serious skills for making stick-to-your-ribs food. If I had people to cook for I would... and no doubt I would eat a lot better too! Still.. I'm just one person, cooking for one, so I tend to live out of my microwave!! I also eat a lot of raw fruits & veggies and makes lots of salads!
