Got any tips to help me enjoy cooking?

I LOVE to bake and I want to enjoy cooking but it seems I mostly only enjoy cooking dishes I am extremely comfortable with. I'm sure repetitive cooking will be named but any tips for UNTIL I've made something over and over?

  • I started enjoying it more when I started cooking things I wanted! Not hubby saying he wants this or that, but when I saw something and decided that just I wanted it and I didn't care if the rest of the family liked it LOL ;o)

  • Get your kids to help - pick up some child-friendly cookbooks (there are tons of them like Sesame Street and Rachel Ray) and learn new recipes with them. Take pictures and make a real event of it.

  • maybe get a new cookbook and try to go through it and try everything once, or ask friends and fam for their favorite recipes and try those....just thinking about it is making me hungry!!

  • Try just relaxing- put on some fun music and dance while cooking. Find a cook book that actually sounds good- the recipies I mean. If the food doesnt sound good- you wont want to cook it.
    I get excited and want to cook right away after I find a good recipie.
