I enjoy cooking and eating the same amount. The one thing with cooking/eating my own food is that I am my own worst critic. I am always looking for ways to improve my cooking, so I try to find the "faults" in my cooking so I can make even better food. I will still enjoy my food because I think I am a pretty dang good cook, but always look to improve.
Cooking for others and seeing them enjoy my food brings a sense of gratification. I don't think I have cooked food where most people didn't enjoy the food. I know it might not be the most amazing thing they ate, but they do acknowledge the fact that it is good food. And good food helps foster good times with your good friends.
