I love to be the one cooking because I need to have control. I'm very particular about what I eat, and how I like food to look so I rather be the one cooking it, not so much because I want to impress the other person, but more because I want to ensure I go to bed having had a decent meal. It's not to say I don't appreciate eating someone else's meal, but it has to be real homey or real fancy, that's the only way I'll relinquish my power. It can't just be food on a plate just for the sake of feeding someone.
I grew up with a mom who put minimal effort into cooking. At the same token, I would love nothing better than to go to a traditional Puerto Rican household and have a plate of all my fav cooked for me. That would totally rock my world.
