Most the things I cook don't turn out too well, I am fed up with constantly eating crappy food. I just dread dinner time as I never know what to cook. I have tried so many different recipes. It has got to the point where I would happily substitute snacks for a proper dinner, but I know that it isn't healthy.

I don't hate to cook foods (just prepared a self-made calzone), on the contrary! I like it. Of course there were recipes they did not turn out well, but I made it better next time then. Apart from those, most of the things I cooked were good. Not in the sense of a starred chef, but good in taste in any case!

That is exactly what I have been saying to people who need to enourage instead of being frustrated, if a food didn't well.

Cooking is boring and your creation lasts for like half an hour. B****y waste of time. I'm actually quite good at cooking, I just hate it.

I don’t hate cooking in the sense that I don’t like it, but I am very impatient and lazy so I don’t like waiting about for the food to cook. I’d much rather someone else cooked for me because then at least I could be doing something else to pass the time.

I like baking though, when I have free time and the right ingredients.

Yes, but it doesn't come out like it should so it doesn't taste great.

I'm the opposite, I love cooking and most of my meals turn out well. A good website for recipes is simplyrecipes.com where I found a great persian recipe called fesenjoon and a peanut butter curry. Can you describe a meal you did, maybe I can see where it went wrong?

aaaaw, poor guy. Mate, I'm even worse, I just don't get recipes :eek: WTF I think. Just take simpler foods then, simple. 2 basic meals (like cereals, bread/bakery etc) and one solid cooked/prepared meal is all you really need in the day (and ofc maybe a snack or two) .

Ready made sauces are a bit pricey. I have no idea what I like anymore I don’t know what veg to buy and what combination of veg is good.

Vegetable curry is easiest I reckon mate, least complicated. With vegetables, u just have to cook them up tbh to get taste out of them.

Potatoes, Iceland sliced peppers (so u don't have to slice email up urself as obviously we hate being in kitchen for time), birds eye mixed vegetables steam bags (broccoli, carrots, sweetcorn), spinach.
Cook 4 days worth of Lunch vegetable curry this way easily (with brown rice with it). That's Lunch sorted for 4 days straight.
You can just have something simple for breakfast and Dinner, e.g. cereals, bread/bakery, bagels, crisps, fruits etc.
What I do, hate cooking also. Get tired easily here and don't like standing up or doing dishes etc. Hate it.
