I dont know if anyone else is like this but I have to cook. Im cooking more on this diet than i did before ha ha. Im making a caribbean noodle soup and dumplings and a caribbean chicken curry. my house smells lovely ha ha
I made chicken fried rice yesterday and it's one of my faves. It was a really good one as well. I don't mind cooking so much now, seem to get used to it. But defo cooking more now than before which is strange isn't it? I also love smelling food, it seems to help with the cravings.
Me too...today my daughter is off sick from school I have had to take the day off work. I have made cakes for comic relief - 2 batches of choc muffins, fruit tea loaf and flap jacks, normally I dont bake often because I like the spoon, bowl andpick all the way through, end up feeling SICk but this has been a revelation! I also love reading recipes, watching stuff like Saturday Kitchen and Come Dine with me (which would have me salivating and reaching in the cupboards for junk-type food -anything to satisfy my cravings!) I am just planning lovely healthy type food that i will one day be able to eat again! x
Oooh Chell I made my other half beautiful mushrooms in a creamygarlic and cheese sauce last night last with a jacket potato and breaded chicken escalope...yum!!! (think I have become a 'feeder' lol!)...

I reckon it is to be honest! How would you eat it though raw? eerrrghhh!!:sign0137:
I was wondering whether we could put dried garlic (u know what you get in the herb and spice aisle) on the chicken soup - could be yum, what d'you reckon?
I just chucked half a boursin cheese, and some butter and seasoning, chucked it in the slow cooker with mushrooms and about and hour later -voila!!! You could leave the mushrooms out and just have it as a yummy sauce!! x
Yup - i loved cooking before and now i cant stop!
Have made pasties, biscuits and fairy cakes all within like 2 weeks!!
Next week am making a cheescake and the week after am making a cake for my mum for mothers day!
ha ha, well I am glad I am not the only one. Chelly its just chicken pieces with no skin seasoned in chilli,spring onion, chicken seasoning,curry and black pepper boiled up into a curry. The soup is chicken, carrot,parsnip, potatoe and suede witha chicken noodle soup mix and chilli with some boiled dumplings. My house smells divine. I keep lifting the lid off to smell it. I am addicted to smelling. I keep sitting with my hubby and son at meal times and watch them eat and ask them does it taste good ha ha
I'm with you chumba lover - i'm sure if i'd cheat.
I've not cooked either (only on week 1, lol) - no need as i only cater for myself. BUT!! making my friend a birthday cake next weekend. Nigella's chocolate fudge cake, which is utterly amazing. Just won't be able to have a piece, but never mind, the kitchen will smell fab while it cooks
