Yes! It's also relaxing, creative, healthy, sustainable -- and cheaper and tastier than any alternative.

I find it lots of fun. Sort of like science experiments, I like to see how things turn out. And I love to present awesome goodies to friends. I'm making 2 ricotta cheesecakes to take with strawberry sauce to a party tomorrow. I'm very popular at a potluck.

Yes, The major thing to remember is that you will make some spectacular mistakes, don't give up, learn from them and go on. Perfect two or three main dishes that you feel comfortable to serve to friends. Then branch out..making more complex things. Good Luck!

Yes. So is eating. And as Sam1148 says, please don't be deterred by mistakes. We all make them. Life goes on. But cooking is definitely restorative, it is life-affirming, it is sharing and generous, it is pleasurable.

Oh yes! It's my main form of entertainment. Plus, if you're known for always having something delicious around, it's much easier to get your friends to come over. Good homemade food also makes great bribes. I got my (really nice) wooden bed frame from craigslist because I told the seller that if they held it for me I'd bring him an entire batch of cookies!

Sure it is, if you like burning and scarring your hands forever. More fun than a barrel of wet clowns in a coin-op laundry dryer....before the elephants arrive.

If you don't poke air holes in the barrels, they aren't very fun at all.
