Those are just lovely!

I like to cook AND bake, but if I had to choose one? Probably baking. I love to make muffins!

Jeni said...

Love that felt cookie! I like to cook but I LOVE to bake! Yum :)

Emma Leigh said...

I'd have to choose baking :) All my teeth are sweet teeth!

Tawny said...

Hmm I'm definitely a cook. Baking takes too much time and it's fiddley. I'd much rather throw a few ingredients into a slow cooker and create something wonderful with the least amount of work possible :)

TianaMarie said...

The oven hardly ever agrees with me... but me and my pots and pans are good friends:) I only wish i had more time to spend with them!

Stephanie said...

Cute! Cute! Cute!

I can officially call myself both! I am pretty proud of that. I used to only be able to make creme brulee and quesadillas. Now, I will try to cook and bake anything!

Kathlyn said...

These are wonderful!

I definitely prefer to bake...it's my dream to be able to bake a cake like Ace of Cakes!

Vicki said...

i prefer to bake if i'm honest!!!! especially cupcakes!!!!

Oh how pretty!
I like to cook and bake as long as I have someone in the kitchen helping me! Baking is my favorite though.

becks said...

i'm a baker, hands down. but i don't really like eating baked goods so it usually just means more for my boyfriend and friends!

Sarah said...

I prefer baking! Luckily my husband is the cook... otherwise we'd have fat bellies and lots of cavities.

I love Baking. Cooking not so much.

I am both a baker and a cook, can't live without doing either! :)

minXnim said...

I do love both. But if I had to choose, I'd take cooking (it's more versatile :-))

Baking!!! It always smells soooo good!

Meg said...

I prefer to cook over baking...I always burn the things I bake!

janaetime said...

I'm definitely a baker. I'm making cupcakes for a get-together tonight!

pepper said...

I love to bake, but usually cook as baking tends to end up with me eating an entire batch of cookies/muffins/ whole cake. Yes.

melissa kaye said...

Beautiful headband and brooch!

I'm definitely a person who can make a complete goof of myself in the kitchen. I'm not a great cook but I can bake a few things. :)

Vale said...

Omg! Those flowers are SO pretty! I love to do both but I guess I prefer to cook since I feel like I can change things up a little bit more!

Too cute!

I love cooking! But could only ever see myself owning a bakery. Does that make sense? haha

OKdanielson said...

I get so much satisfaction out of both..! Either one makes me happy :)

Stefan, Sarah and Lukka said...

I love to do both, but more so cooking. I just always need plenty of elbow room to do either one and in our teeny tiny 8X8 kitchen, it's a bit hard!

Eleanor said...

I heart baking! Everything about it, from the baking supplies to the lovely smells in the kitchen as it bakes. Mmmmm.

anika said...

Both, I love cooking, and absolutely love baking (and eating, sharing it all) Especially cupcakes and pie!

Formerly.Lisa.S. said...

I prefer to cook, because I hate measuring! But my husband is the chef/baker in our family...if only he would get in the kitchen more often!

aja reeser said...

great question! I love both- cooking because i find it really creative and baking because it is decadent and yummy!

Natasha said...

I'd love to say baking. Really, I would. I have lovely memories from when I was a kid, of being in the kitchen baking all of the christmas cookies with my Granny. She would teach me how to do little things and let me help, and I loved every minute of it. I always thought it would be awesoem to do the same with my daughter. And I do. Every year. And she loves it. Me however, not so much. Could have to do with the face that I tend to burn everything I bake. So, I'd have to say cooking. Surprisingly, i'm not a half bad cook.

Jennifer said...

Love the headband, so cute!
I love both cooking and baking!

Sarah said...

baking - my new obsession is crunchy artisan bread. mmmmm.

Kirsten W. said...

So pretty! I love to bake, but I'm trying to get better at learning how to (and enjoying) cooking.

cindy said...

I prefer both equally. I cook daily and always make a point to bake 3 times a week. I have willing eaters, so I am lucky in that respect.

Marion said...

I prefer to bake. I mean, i like to bake but i'm not realy good at it!

Staci said...

I love to do both. But lately I've been enjoying baking much more!

Kristen said...

I love to eat :) I can cook and bake...but I usually end up eat all the cookie dough before the cookies are done...or filling up on cheese while I'm cooking dinner...

Ragazzarte said...

I prefer to eat.
I am not a particularly good cook and although I like my baking, no one else really seems to. Good thing I have a good friend who is a fabulous cook and baker who enjoys having me and my kid over for dinner a lot. =)

Beatriz said...

I love both, to cook and bake, but lately I Use to cook much more than bake (because I'm on diet and baking sweets is a little dangerous in my circumstances ;))

Jenna said...

I like to bake, but my husband isn't a sweet tooth guy, so he likes it when I cook. I like cooking then because he likes my cooing so much :)

<3 Krystina

Remi said...

I can't do either! I rely on everyone else for my food. :)

kylee D said...

Michelle said...

I'll be honest, my husband taught me to cook. He is Mexican and carries the good-flavor gene! The one most basic thing he taught me- use onion and garlic as your base no matter what! Now I'm really starting to explore new (but still doable!) recipes. It gives me such a great sense of accomplishment at age 25!
