Do you cook too much?

CarmenR | Nov 30, 2013 07:35 AM

Cooking is therapeutic for me- when I'm my most stressed, all I want to do is spend the day cooking. Sometimes it's meatballs, sometimes its cookies, sometimes its 4x pound cakes... but nothing makes me happier than getting up early, cleaning the kitchen, making the husband drive me to the grocery store (no small feat with a motorcycle in nyc) and then cooking all day.
The trouble is... it's just the two of us. We are friends with another couple who live close by and who we frequently host last-minute, but sometimes it's just too much food. As it stands today, I want to make two different batches of cookies, risotto and try a new lemon glazed poundcake recipe today. That's not even including dinner! I bring food to work, to my fave local bartenders, and to friends but I'm starting to think I have a problem ;)
Luckily, my husband loves to eat, but I'm wondering if anyone else cooks this much for pleasure instead of for necessity?
