Cooking for me is at once a selfish thing and an act of love...
I cook because it's relaxing, a little dose of me time - you lose yourself in it
Because making an effort for someone shows you care
Because Mrs Northern hates cooking and I hate washing and cleaning
Because I like showing off
Because I care about what we eat, and the only way to make sure it's good is to do it myself
Becuse the best way to show people you care is to make a bit of effort
Because Mum always took the time to let me help in the kitchen
Because Mrs Northern can only make lasagne
Because it's really easy - good ingredients, a few tricks and you're off
Because it's one of the few things I do really well.
Because there's nothing more satisfying than making something good.
Because I'm not good at much else.
