I don't bake and I'm just 'ok' at cooking. I do a lot of crockpot meals.

I really enjoy both if I have plenty of time. I used to bake a lot more than now. We moved half a year ago and we have a gas oven with a very uneven temperature distribution and I don't like to bake with it at all. But cooking with gas is great and I like to experiment with different things I haven't tried before to keep meals healthy and interesting.
Both but especially baking. Had to stand on a chair in front of the stove but I was cooking my own egg at six...working the flat top & fryers by the time I was 10 in the family restaurant. Love to bake breads and to experiment. At Christmas time my mother & I would bake/make at least 30 different kinds of cookies & candies. Those days are over but now I experiment making healthy versions of some things...found out the other day that beans can replace the oil/butter in cakes and cookies...those croissants sound wonderful...I've never tried to make those...that sounds challenging.. hmmm now how can I make it & eat it too???

Sure, I cook all the time, maybe 97% of my meals. I like making bread, actually much more than I like eating it. (Single bread-eating woman wanted, please apply). Other favourites are dips, salads, casseroles. I don't like sweets much.
I love to do both. My favorit etype is French cooking. I make a mean quiche, chicken fricasse and I jsut learned how to make awesome as-good-as-in-france croissants...none of this howeveris good for weightloss :(
