Are you like me? Hate to cook, but LOVE to eat?

I have a confession to make - I don't enjoy cooking. I do it out of complete necessity - after all I and my husband and our 2 boys do need to eat. But that doesn't mean I have to enjoy it. Now the eating part, oh yeah, that part is good!

With that being said, I can't even tell you what my favorite things to cook are - it's more like 'what things do you hate cooking least of all?' lol

And that's easy - the things that I hate cooking the least is a meal that I can take a bunch of ingredients and toss it into the crockpot and let it do it's thing until dinnertime!!!

I was so excited to come across a cool giveaway contest over at Seriouseats.com. They are giving away 5 copies of the cookbook Make it Fast, Cook It Slow by Stephanie O'Dea. All you have to do is go on over and post a reply, commenting on YOUR favorite kitchen appliance before noon EST on Monday, January 18th.

So hurry up and go on over and add your comment.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

So many to choose from - being invisible, ability to fly, xray vision, to actually post on my blog on a daily basis. lol

But if you could choose just one, what would it be?

I'm not sure what I'd pick. There's a lot of super powers that I'd love to have, and depending on what I'm doing at any particular moment, my pick changes.

Right this minute, I would pick to have the powers of a genie. I would LOVE being able to cross your arms and nod your head ala I Dream of Jeannie and have whatever you needed done, done just like that. That mountain of laundry would be done so much quicker with a nod than having to throw it in the washer, wait for that to get done, throw it in the dryer, wait for the buzzer and then fold AND put it away. Can you imagine?

There's a gazillion things that I'd love to get checked off the old to-do list today, and yeah I know there's always pride in a job well done but I'd prefer to have pride in a job done well AND done quickly and genie power, yeah that would do it!!!

Although regularly posting on my blog - that would be cool too. And I guess you wouldn't technically call that a super power, so maybe I CAN do that. Hmm, maybe you should come back and check on me and see how I'm doing.

Oh, and by the way, Happy 2010!!
