I frequently encounter people who hate to cook, or like to cook but don’t like to cook dinner. I always wonder what I, as a food writer, can do to make that process less unpleasant…besides, as a few have suggested… making them dinner every night. Sorry, but that ain’t going to happen.
I often wonder which part of making dinner is hardest to overcome. Is it picking recipes? Are recipes too complicated? Is organized food shopping too cumbersome? Maybe, it’s just the thought of all the cleanup.
Let’s dish freely here. What keeps you from cooking dinner, besides total exhaustion at that witching hour? If you could wave a magic wand, what would you change to make getting dinner on the table easier?
