I sometimes cook for my friends and my family, but only with my mother or with my best friend. I can cook with my mother Spaghetti Bolognese and Pizza and I can bake cookies and biscuit with her. I can cook with my best friend Spaghetti Bolognese too and I can bake small cakes or cookies with her.

You can cool real well. Breads and cakes look extremely hard to make. There are so many ingredients. I'm so jealous of your capability on baking. I wish i can do a lot better:)

I cook food a few times a day. There are many dishes I can cook. For my breakfast I usually cook some oat flakes, two boiled eggs. I eat it with some cheese. I add a table spoon of olive oil and some sesame to cooked oat flakes. Sometimes I eat some cottage cheese with dry fruits or a few sandwiches. For my luch I usually cook soup and a salad. I eat some meat or fish with a salad for my dinner.
