Expressing likes dislikes interests and preferences in English

Hi kids!
How do you say "mi piace, non mi piace, amo, odio, preferisco" in English?
Here's a map that illustrates various ways to express likes and dislikes, interests and preferences in English. Click on the map to enlarge it. 
These are the verbs I've used:
be addicted to   ______ing 
(for example: cooking, taking photographs, playing the piano etc.)
be a   ______ing  addict
be a   ______ing   enthusiast
be mad / crazy about  ______ing  
be keen on   ______ing 
have a passion for ______ing
be fond of   ______ing  
be (really) into  ______ing  
be interested in   ______ing
love  ______ing 
like  ______ing  
enjoy   ______ing  
hate  ______ing
dislike  ______ing 
can't stand   ______ing  
not mind  ______ing
prefer  ______ing   to  ______ing

Hope you find it useful. 
I used CmapTools to create the map (I love it! I'm addicted to it!).

Ciao carissima!
è sempre molto bello risentirti.
Ho staccato la spina in questi giorni (in senso letterale e in senso figurato!)quindi i miei auguri ti giungono in ritardo!
Ti seguo sempre (anche se sono a volte latitante con i commenti, ma non ti perdo di vista!).
Un grosso abbraccio e alla prossima :)
