I love cooking for people I love. Part of it is, Oh hey! cooking for just one seems like a waste of time! But another part of it is that I like DOING things for people I care about. I liek caring for them, I like the nurture aspect of things. And hey, I love being taken care of too. I like give and take, and feel that feeding people-- one of our most basic needs-- is a fantastic way to show appreciation for them as a person and appreciation for them in my life.
