I enjoy cooking. The main thing that stops me from doing more complex recipes is time. Usually dinner for me looks something like: "Chop some veggies, steam. Chop some meat, cook in pan. Toss together, season to taste".
The above tends to be the norm, mostly because on weeknights I hit the gym after work, so it's pretty late and I'm starving - leading to a desire to cook and devour dinner quickly. Weekends I tend to get a bit more experimental, and tend toward the "science lab" end of things. Sometimes I'll batch cook stew/chili on the weekend and portion it, and it becomes lunch for me at work on days when there's no decent offerings at the cafeteria.
