English term or phrase: Now we're cooking
Two skateboarders are doing a speed race on the street. One overtakes the other and says "Now we're cooking"

Could it mean "now I'm flying" as one of these meanings suggests? http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cooking (some content offensive)

Sorry, no further context http://www.proz.com/post/507566
