Do you cook? If yes, how often? Do you consider yourself a good cook? Do others consider you a good cook? What's your specialty?
For me: I do cook pretty often, I think I'm a great cook, whoever has tried my creations has said that it was amazing, I consider chicken to be my specialty tho my mom said I so kickass potatoes in the oven.

I am the primary cook in my household. I cook every evening and on weekends. I usually do one big family meal on the weekend.
I think I am a reasonably good cook, my mother was a chef and I learnt a lot from her. I have also taken it beyond what she does and she loves coming over to eat at my place.
I have two grills a Big Green Egg smoker grill and a Napolean Natural Gas BBQ. So I grill all year round. I grill anything from Rock Lobster tails to smoked Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce, Side Ribs to perfection, smoked beans, grilled tuna steaks with pineapple mango salsa, dad's stuffed potatoes, etc.,
I also make all my own sauces and gravies from scratch and whenever someone comes over for lunch I have grilled turkey and ham for deli sandwiches. I make salads, vegetable stir fries, sushi handrolls, you name it I have done it.
I make the best cabbage rolls, chili, home comfort foods that most people have tasted.
My specialty is grilling and I sometimes have 10 - 15 people come over if I let everyone know that I am doing side ribs. My ribs take about 8 hours slow smoked. I make my own rubs, and my own BBQ sauces. I normally do smoked baked beans with thick cut smoked bacon, coleslaw and homemade melt in your mouth cornbread. For dessert, banana's flambe with vanilla soft serve ice cream. Like below:

I love to cook because it isn't so specific whereas baking requires you to be accurate and precise and there is no way to correct something once it's in that oven. I do however get a lot of requests and compliments for my baking. I do some really elaborate cupcakes and cookies, but I secretly loath it and leave it for birthday's and holidays. Cooking on the other hand is relaxing to me. I cook probably 5-6 times per week, my favorites being cooking things from other cultures and exposing myself to new spices and vegetables and flavor combinations.1
