The main difference occurs in how you see your cooking projects.

How Do Your View Cooking?

Whereas this question is asked somewhat rhetorically, it's a question you ought to ask yourself. Do you view cooking as a chore or duty or do you view it as a project? There is something much more stimulating about embarking on a new project than getting around to a hateful chore. If you do view cooking as a chore the more significant question might be why?

Some common reasons that individuals dislike cooking include the following: lack of talent, timidity, boredom, or you could merely dislike the inevitable clean up far more than you enjoy the process of cooking. For every of these, there are solutions if you're willing to make the attempt.

There will always be clean up. My suggestion is to make a deal with either your partner or your kids and they can draw straws over who cleans up. After all if this won't work in your family, you could always turn over a new leaf and clean as you go when possible. This makes the clean up method after dinner so much easier to handle that it is well worth a few extra minutes throughout meal prep.

Cooking for pleasure is really the only method to cook. If you've got difficulties when it involves finding the satisfaction and entertainment value of cooking, maybe it is time you bring some fun back to your kitchen.
