Hello every 1. I love to cook when I'm upset out agitated. It calms me & puts my mind @ ease. Does any 1 else enjoy cooking for any reason?

I am the exact same way.  When DD was little DH would take care of her and play with her while I made dinner so I could relax.  Now she's in there with me.  It's not quite as relaxing, but it's always fun and leaves me in a better mood.

Me also. If I'm angry,I practically run 2 the kitchen. My 9 year old D helps she sometimes makes it a Little stressfull so i give her a task, then let her complete it b4 I come back... or stop washing dishes.so we don't crowd other.

Yep! I love to bake bread when I'm upset or mad. Nobody says anything when you're beating the crap out of dough in my house.

I just started doing baking. So for me it is still a little stressful. But when my ds is in the kitchen better stay out of his way. Lol

I like to bake when I'm stressed, something about putting things together in an exact order and having it come out as expected calms me.

I clean when I am made I cook when I have extra time and want to do it, it does calm me and my daughter helps so it is our time especially baking!

 Exactly! Punching the dough is a great stress reliever when you're feeling like  punching someone!
