Is there any particular reason food always tastes better, to me anyway, if its been made by someone else?

Anyone else

Lolol. I don't know if that's true for me. In my opinion, everything tastes better at camp. O.o

Everything's better if you don't have to fix it.

Maybe it's because you like them better? And everyone makes food differently even if they use the same recipe.

Because you didn't have to go through the hassle making it yourself.
It happens with myself as well.

I wish meals came in tiny pill form

That would be amazing actually! Me too!

Or something like in "Back to the Future", when they actually went to the future, and they had a tiny pizza and then put it in the cooker, and it was family sized. Lol

It's probably because you like the person who's making it for you and therefore it tastes good. You're appreciating the food they made for you because you didn't have to make it yourself. And then there's this the person making it just their good rubs off into the meal they're preparing for you so that makes it taste good. Really though I've got no idea about that just I know what you mean though....

LOL. They "rub off" into the meal. That explains it perfectly!

That's what I always thought don't know why though it's crazy for thinking like that, but yes I believe so with that answer. Lol
Report as
Oh man that's a good one. That phrase must mean something different than what I thought of first. Okay. Sorry!
My mind drifted for a minute, lol
Report as
What... wait a minute. What were you THINKING THEN? Lol

Food on the mind

It seems you're always thinking of something too explicit Josh. Lol

Usually, but that just means my mind isn't a boring place

Just wondering if it has anything to do with a sense of smell. My father had a cafe and after smelling food all day I wasn't very hungry.
I've heard people who work in bakeries say that after awhile they don't want to eat the pastries.
So, maybe because you are smelling the food cooking, you don't have an appetite. But if you smell the food cooked by someone else, you haven't been smelling it for a long time and then you are hungry.
Food always tastes better when you are hungry.

Happens to me too. I cook a lot but sometimes I wish others would for me as I enjoy it better.

I guess it's because we were around the food the entire time it was getting prepared. We smelled every compnent that went in it. So by the time it's cooked, it's a little bland and boring and we're a little less excited than we hoped for.

It always tastes better when you don't have to fix it yourself, heck my kids can make me a grilled cheese sandwich and it tastes so good, best I ever had.

Okay Josh; You need to watch the cooking channel a little more. I gotta feeling your cooking skills aren't up to par.

My story as well; But when I want a decent meal I send one of my boys to the China King for a decent take out meal.
Report as
I've never been big on Chinese
Report as
LexiPo
There are a few that know what they're doing. The one near me doesn't shovel salt into their meals.
Report as
"Jeff's Chinese", the place that I do get Chinese from when I do, it's decent food. Doesn't taste salty at all, taste just right for Chinese. I'd rather have something more Mexican though

I linked to that subhuman's question as well, but is seems that when ask removes a violation, the links vanish as well. But I have a reminder of his username, and payback will be sweet.
Report as
Payback? I'm not sure what you mean

My link to Hooterman got clobbered with his question. Did yours remain intact?
The question had something to do with Happy Wheels
Report as
Oh I didn't post a link, just made a quick comment to tell another user I was surprised that profile was still here. Then the asker got the boot lol
Report as
LexiPo
He asked another question five minutes ago. I answered appropriately.
Report as
Ah, I didn't see it. Do you mean the one with the naked profile picture?
Report as
LexiPo
Of course my answer got removed. And he ended up with a new username. "K745"
Just another example of ask rewarding the bad and punishing those who do good.
Time for me to leave ask and come back as a new user.
