I also make things in the kitchen, and my mother says I need a dainty young lady to cook for.
Zero to One, Liar's Poker, Forbidden Grounds, A Fine Balance, A Bright Shining Lie, The Big Short, and I Am a Pole - and So Can You! (by Stephen Colbert).
Anything that makes me move or puts me to sleep. Everything in between is just noise. I'm also big on podcasts, especially This American Life and Planet Money.
I like cerebral movies that leave me thinking. Doubt, The Killing Fields, Dear Zachary, Jackass, Bruno and Borat would fall into that category for very different reasons. I like a lot of documentaries.
I'm a big fan of the Office. Sometimes I listen to just the audio to put me to sleep. That way, when I wake up, I have a lot of great jokes to tell that I've learned while I'm sleeping. Since the Office ended, I've become a big fan of the Walking Dead, Narcos, and Bloodline. Lost is one of my favorite shows of all time.
Anything I make for myself is delicious. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
I actually started taking cooking classes recently to up my game, but I live alone, so I'm always looking for guinea pigs to try my latest creations.
