Any good at it? What do you like to cook? Any good recipes to share?

I don't do it too much myself, although that's really just because the dorm doesn't have a decent kitchen. When I'm home for vacation I'll dabble in it. Some mornings I'll make some pancakes with pan-cooked bacon, and maybe some scrambled eggs with cheese. Lunch and dinner is pretty damn random. Although I've been wanting to try something new. Chop and mix mushrooms, zucchini, and onions, saute them and serve it on a bed of rice with small pieces of steak. Probably use caramelized onions for a little sweetness.

I enjoy cooking, but a lot of the time I'm not sure what I'm making till I get half way through it.

Pretty good at it. Learned from my mother and various jobs when I was in my teenage years, and of course living the bachelor life @ 27 also forces you to do it lol. I like cooking various breakfast foods and desserts especially. Sometimes lunch but almost never dinner. I work from home a lot so not much time in the evenings for that sort of thing. Got tons of dessert recipes I could share if you have something specific as far as tastes go.

Yep, give me a recipe and watch me replicate it. I'm pretty great at following instructions.

Some of my go-to recipes:

For my pancakes, to make it a bit healthier and more flavorful, I'd toss in some cinnamon, honey, mashed bananas, dried seed and fruit mix and a handful of oatmeal into the mix. I want my pancakes thick and packed with grains.

If you have a bunch of left-over chicken (from that grocery rotisserie), add them to some beaten eggs, sliced mushrooms, red bell peppers, spinach and cheese over a pan for a frittata. Cook on stovetop until the veggies are done, then switch to the oven to finish it off. It will smell like the most awesome pizza when done--but it's not pizza.

Add diced Brie cheese and mushrooms to your hamburger meat mix for a delightful surprise when you get around to grilling them. Pan-fry is always a standby option but a tad messy with the oil splatters.

Cooked, canned,baked,smoked,pickled, candied for many years. I don't do much anymore because my family is long grown and my dietary restrictions don't really allow a large range food options. .

Best advice to those in HS/college when they get their first single place: Get a slow-cooker.
Soups (and roasts/meatballs on weekends) can be made with the simplest ingredients, you can get the makings for half a gallon for the price of two cans of "homemade" Progresso and have pints left over for the freezer, and they do all the cooking for you while you're away at class or work, without having to worry about your place catching on fire.
It's the first step for those who, quote, "don't know" how to cook.

Cooking is a basic skill that everyone should have at least some knowledge of. You should know how to do your own laundry and sew buttons back onto your coats. You should know how to make at least basic dishes.

I've been messing around in the kitchen since I was about 6 years old. I can cook pretty much anything on the stove since I'm very familiar with temperature control and the basics. I'm no good at baking, though. Japanese food is my default type. I can also make Taiwanese food.

Baking is pretty complicated in practice. Doesn't sound like it in theory.

I like to cook a lot.
My go to meal is cutting up chicken breast and putting it in the wok with teriyaki sauce!
Also some rice and steamed broccoli.
It takes a few minutes and tastes so good!
