    “I like to cook”? What about “I like not working and having no opinions and being everyone’s handmaiden”? (from the not liking to cook article)

    Wow, that is so nasty. I’m so happy for this woman to hate cooking, but man alive her comment above is harsh. Defrost happily, dear author, and ignore self-righteousness in those who make cooking an art form. Ignore, ignore, and please, please don’t be mean to the rest of us. Reject the judging, and stop yourself throwing more on the pile.
