  93. yoga says:

    The food is very important to people to live in the world. People living in the rich countries, who eat healthy food, therefor they are living healthy. people living in poor countries,who eat unhealthy food, therefor they are living with diseases.They eat same food every day f.ex. rice and curries. I think that seafood and vegetables better than red meat.A lot of people eat fat food , therefor they get dangerous disease, which are cancer, diabetes,and heart attack .
    I suggest that everybody eats healthy food .so they can live as long as in the world.

  94. nishi says:

    I like cooking. Specially,I like Indian food, but I cook all kind of food like Chinese food, Mexican food, Italian food…..but I fast many times because breatharianism is important for our health It became stable our internal cycle.

Each and every machine need oil, same way our body need food. Basically perfect, healthy, and diet food is good for our health

  204. Otello Sala says:

    Hi, I am Italian and of course I like cooking and eating.

    I’m particuarly fond of spahetti…I already see you, through the computer, laugh. But I never mind. I’m good at cooking too! Needs, I’m Italian! I like to cook spaghetti and dressing them with beans, peas, dwarf peas,chickpeas, onions and so many other stuff that I don’t want to describe to avoid stress and bothering anyone of you.

    My speciality is the vegetable soup where I put inside every kind of vegetables adding a mixture of spices and a magic spread : that of the pig fat. It’s a delicacy.

    Good at cooking Panettone as well. A sort of Milanese cake. This last one is delicious, gorgeous…if one can use such an adjective for a sweet.

    Art and cooking. This is my country strength. There’s not only mafia. How many of you know such a things. There are 20 regions in Italy each of one can provide you magnifecent buildings, different way of cooking pasta, meat, fish ,cakes. It’s a wonderful country with an anomaly: Silvio Berlusconi our Prime Minister.

    Ciao, Ciao.

  244. Huda says:

    Hey guys
    First I have to say that I totally agree with Mitra, those breatharianism people are doing some real damage to their bodies. I also think that it’s a great idea for the people who don’t have a strong appetite for food, to sit with those who do, and just try to suck some of their appetite:D, no really that would really help them, because I think eating some times can be as contagious as laughing.
    I love cooking a lot, it really makes me happy. I cook when i’m in a good mood, which means I don’t really cook often 😛
    I’d love to talk some more about this topic and other ones too, so if you would like that too, you can find me on Skype. My name there is hudhud20401.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon 🙂

  280. Betty says:

    I like cooking Italian food and Filippino food, when I’m really hungry I prefer to cook Italian food because it’s so fast and delicious like “Pasta all’aglio ed olio” (Pasta with garlic and oil) this is very simple and tasty. The filippino food, I think is delicious too but it takes more time, first you have to cook rice and then the viand, for me that I don’t have much time I prefer to cook the simple thing, eheheh like hotdogs, sausage and eggs perfect to match in Fried rice, yummy.

    Here are the procedure for “Pasta all’aglio ed olio”
    For two person:

    400 grms Spaghetti
    4 cloves of garlic
    5 tblspoon of olive oil
    7 pcs of cherry tomato
    1 tblspoon of salt for pasta
    1 teaspoon for the sauce

    Boil the water for spaghetti, put 1 spoon of salt before boiling, Put the spaghetti when the pot is boiling,Stir frequently so that it won’t be sticky. While you are waiting for your pasta you can start to heat the pan, and put the olive oil, and when it heat you can put the chopped cloves of garlic and when you see that they turn to brown start to put the chopped cherry tomatoes.

    But make you don’t forget to stir your pasta, and drain.

    Hope you’ll like it!

    • Mark White says:


      Capsicums are cheap now. I bought six large yellow ones and six large red ones and chopped them up and fried them on a low heat in extra-virgin olive oil.

      It took hours to reduce them on low heat without burning but they formed a beautiful chili paste. Even the children can eat it because they are sweet peppers but I want to make some more with hot peppers. I like it hot!

      Today I mixed the sweet chili paste with pulverised beans.

      I soaked some mung beans in water and then crushed them in a mortar and pestle with a little raw garlic then I fried the garlic/bean mix in the sweet chili olive oil and added a little salt and some rice.


      We ate it with a salad of grated carrot and cucumber with lemon juice dressing.

      What did you prepare in the kitchen today?

      I am thinking of mixing the chili paste with raw cabbage tomorrow to make a kind of kim-chi dish. Are there any Koreans out there?


      Do you have to use anchovies in kim-chi?


      I like to look in the refrigerator at night and think about what I have to use tomorrow and how to prepare the ingredients to make something healthy and delicious.


      Right now I am in Australia and it is Spring; the end of Winter. Soon I hope I will be able to grow most of my own food.


      We don’t have a gardening page. Do you think we need a gardening page?

I usually cook slice with fried egg and bread for breakfast, rice,chicken and soup for lunch, rice, fried fish and vegetable soup for dinner. My family often eat fruit for dessert. I’m interested to know the recipe of spaghetti. Would anybody sent the recipe to me. Thanks so much!

    • Mark White says:

      You need to make the pasta and the sauce.

      For the sauce:

      Dice garlic and fry it in olive oil.
      Dice onion and fry it separately in olive oil.
      Fry beef and/or pork mince.

      Add everything with tomatoes (fresh or tinned) and/or tomato paste.

      What herbs do you have?

      rosemary (sparingly)
      basil (sparingly)
      mint (good but changes whole character of dish)I would not use it.
      vietnamese mint (very good but really changes character of dish)
      cumin and coriander …no!
      Fresh coriander no!..although that might taste good..

      get a kind of tomato…meat…garlic..onion..olive oil sauce

      and put it on


      Spaghetti is the name of a size and shape of pasta. There are lots of shapes of pasta:

      tagliategla (Please, excuse spelling, Italian friends)

      Spaghetti is a long thin noodle made from (wheat? semolina?)and you boil it with a little salt and watch it carefully and take it off the fire and drain the water when you get the right softness/hardness.

      In Italian “al dente” (on the teeth) means “a bit chewy” in English.

      The thing is, you do not want it to chewy….and you do not want it soggy. Look at this scale:

      really chewy
      very chewy
      a bit chewy

      I like it a bit chewy.

      Try to make the whole dish from fresh ingredients. If there is no shop with pasta near you, maybe you can get wheat flour? Mix it with egg and salt and roll it and cut it into noodles and boil it and you will get “spaghetti originali”

      Let us know how it tastes. I bet it will be delicious!

      Over the years I have heard two types of reactions to stress and general unhappiness.

      Some people tend to eat a lot which can cause weight problems.

      Other people tend to lose their appetite. I fall into the latter category.

    It’s very nice to cook.It works as therapy which you pratice your patient.I often use my spare times to cook on weekends cause I can cook something special.

    • Mark White says:

      Me too. I like cooking for fun and on weekends there is more time and more daylight to buy fresh things and get them from the garden.

      It really is therapy. Where do you go when you cook? Where does your mind go? I go far away yo many places in my the world of imaginings….

      And return to this world to eat.

      Hii sama,
      I live also in Saudi Arabia. I gained a lot of weight when I came first to the kingdom but now I lost many kilos. You know , you have to exercise and be patient. If you can do exercise for only one week , it will be a habit and you will notice the difference.

I like all kinds of food as we have to thank our Creator for his gifts. We eat to live not live to eat. Don’t forget to thank our Creator as soon as you finish eating and remember those poor people everywhere on the planet who don’t find any food to eat and try to support them if you can.
    Nice to write to my friends.

  341. Joseph says:

    Cooking is fun (unless you have to feed a large and picky family)
    Generally my cooking is “Never Twice the Same”, I have my “floating” recipes of my own. That means I do not follow strict rules. My dishes are unique, and so they deserve a name.
    I find it more difficult to get the right names for my dishes. So I borrowed, adopted, adapted, made them up.
    That is why I have secret recipes for Stone soup (Hungarian folklore), Samurai soup, Chicken Beak soup, Primordial soup, Space Vomit (NASA), and I will find many more…

    • Mark White says:

      You sound a lot like me. I let my recipes float and cross-breed.

      I am in the kitchen making salsa and it dances between Thai and Mexican flavors. My son is teaching me to make focacia and the amount of salt in the dough is so delicate….or salt!

      In my imagination as I knead the dough it is Indian japati then Lebanese flat bread then Russian piroshki dough then Italian focaccia…and the filling is Mexican then Thai then finally Russian.

      Calzone or piroshki? Greece or Turkey? Asia or Europe?

      Another failure! Maybe I should have followed the recipe!

      We fail but we keep on trying and along the way…..what a delight!

      and we all get fed…large picky family….grumble grumble…..

  347. hoang says:

    I do not like cooking but I can cook some vietnamese food like rice or noulde. I don’t know about breatharianism before you name it. But I have google that. I think it’s quite irresponsible for somebody to be trying to encourage others to do something that is so detrimental to their health. Some time when I’m stress at work or unhappy I forgot to eat or lose appetite.

  348. Ar-Razi says:

    Yes, of course, I like cooking. Now. I’m study in overseas, so I must to cook for survival. But, I’m enjoy with cooking.

    For me, cook not just for eat but how we use all ingredients and discipline very well.

    Hi yes I am cooking iraqi food and I like to know another kind of cooking food and learn more recipes
    thank you very much

  354. boidin says:

    I like cooking mostly because i like eating. i mean that i cooking is not a hobby for me, not something i like doing really but eating tasty food is one of the greatest pleasures in life. so because i like pasta a lot, i often cook pasta in many ways. i think italian food is the best one and probably the most eaten food in world since a lot of people love pasta and pizza. apart from that, I also like eating couscous and tajines which are easily prepared but take a long time on the burner so you need to stay around. I am not sure to stick to the right way of doing but I try to do my best. I sometimes go to asian restaurants mostly because despite i like their dishes, i find it not easy to cook them well. I forgot to say a word about greece food. I am just back from greece and find their way of cooking so tasty and appropriate to families, not too spicy as well.

        Hi, I also like Bulgarian cuisine very much, especially fasul tchorba (????? ?????). I have cooked it for friends and colleages everywhere I lived : in France and in Russia. And each time the success was guaranteed, beleive me. It’s not difficult to cook, but it does take time, 4 hours +24 hours because you must prepare kidney beans (haricots) in advance. But what a pleasure!!!

      Yes, I am. I sometime like cooking. I used to try cooking in field visit. It is impossible to cook food in every day.
      I could cook fishes and meat well.

      Sorry, I have never heard about breatharians.
      I don’t think that it is possible. I think that people can eat different diet rather regular food.
      I sometime meet lack of appetite when I am in office as the restaurant is away from my office. I bring me into weak sometime. But I eat nutritious food which may recover the requirement of the calories in my body. I

      How do you make pasta? Do you make it from scratch or do you buy the packet one in the supermarket?

      Does anybody have any good recipes for dough?
