Are you a good cook?
Do you know how to cook? Or do your parents cook your meals for you?

Can you make extravagant dishes? Do you know how to bake? What are some of your favourite foods to make?

Are you a good cook?

Yes. n.n I cook all the time and I'm told I'm very talented at it; it's the only thing about myself I admit to being really good at. xD My signature 'dishes' are pork pies with quail eggs inside and practically anything made with mince :3 I also bake tonnes of cakes, apparently the best of which was a black forest gateaux, and I tend to cook at least 4 times a week, so yeah, I'm pretty good at it :D I'll cook literally anything as long as I have the ingredients just because I find cooking a lot of fun and even if the dish doesn't turn out wonderful I'll still try again for fun :3

I can follow the instruction in a recipe, but I'm kinda slow about it so anything that requires me to do several things at once is likely going to result in some unappetizing meal because I left something simmering for too long while I was busy chopping vegetables.

This is why I like making curry. It's just a big stew pot and you throw everything in one after the other depending on how long you want whatever it is to cook. Very easy.

NixChill August 22nd, 2012 10:36 AM

some people say that im a good cook, which is unbelievable because im only 11. but i do know how to cook some classic recipes

I'm getting better. I am currently living alone so I'd have to cook most of my meals since I'm sick of takeaway food.

Katie the Friendly Ghost August 22nd, 2012 11:20 AM

I'm not that good of a cook. I'll follow recipes blindly and sometimes they'll turn out good, sometimes they'll turn out pretty bad. So I typically leave the cooking to my family haha. I want to be a better cook, so I hang around in the kitchen trying to pick up skills lol.

ShadowE August 22nd, 2012 11:24 AM

Im decent at cooking stuff, though i cant cook any kind of food without mistakes lol...

ShinyJohtomaster August 22nd, 2012 11:25 AM

I love to cook. It's one of my hobbies!

pleb August 22nd, 2012 11:34 AM

Give me the job and I'll end up setting the oven on fire.

Talli August 22nd, 2012 11:40 AM

No I am a terrible cook as I the tendansay wonder off when cooking even a slice of toast.

Pokemon Trainer UV August 22nd, 2012 12:47 PM

I managed to ignite my cereal so...
No, I'm not a cook.

outfox August 22nd, 2012 1:03 PM

I'm getting better. On a limited budget it's hard to build a good empire of a kitchen, but that's where you start. I've mixed a lot of weird stuff together. Fortunately when you and everyone around you is stoned 99% of the time, everything is delicious. I must say I come up with awesome cooking ideas when I'm stoned though. I made the best peanut butter/chocolate cupcakes stoned basically via magic because there is never anything to work with in this house.

I imagine this spoken by the voice of your avatar character and it's slightly funny to me.

AsheDD August 22nd, 2012 3:25 PM

Some funny cooking problems i've done:

- Made my brownies boil. Forgot the eggs 8D
- Used cool aid spoon to stir my ramen on accident. Pink ramen!

In all seriousness, I have messed up a few times. But I can cook some larger recipes without problems. I guess I'm forced to cook and I don't enjoy it at all :c

Dreg August 22nd, 2012 3:33 PM

I can't really cook but I can bake a cake really well. A lot of people like the sponge cake that I make: It's my specialty. ^_^

Honest August 22nd, 2012 3:41 PM

Hell no. I can't cook anything at all. My mom makes my food for me. >>

Golurks Were Meant to Fly August 22nd, 2012 5:57 PM

My parents cook dinner, though occasionally I'll cook. I'm more of a baker, and I guess I'm fairly good. I enjoy making extravagant things, though I almost never can since my house doesn't have any ingredients. Cookies are boring, and souffles/mousse etc aren't (at least that's how I see it)

I like to make pies and I lovelovelove making pancakes. I had a streak where I made them like 3 times each week for a couple of weeks lol. Muffins are fun too, and I also enjoy making popcorn and caramel, though the latter is scary.

Claire* August 22nd, 2012 6:36 PM

I've been told I'm an excellent cook. However, I never like to think that myself. I like to experiment and I really enjoy cooking. Maybe one day I'll consider myself to actually be good. :D

I specialize in a lot of Italian and oddly enough, Chinese dishes. Don't ask how. :\

Snowdrop August 22nd, 2012 7:16 PM

I am a master of the microwave. Does that count?

But seriously, I hate being around heat so getting close to the oven, or boiling water for pasta, or whatever is really hot I don't want to be around it. I feel jittery and nervous around things like that :C But I'm getting better at handling it. I don't usually cook though.

xelarator August 22nd, 2012 8:53 PM

I guess I'm a decent cook, since I know how to use a stove and make some basic food. One of my favorite foods is a Cheese Quesidilla. You get one flour tortilla, put about 2 slices of cheese on it, then put another tortilla over it. Then I cook it on a stove for about five minutes, a quick and easy snack if I'm hungry. I also know how to make hash browns, and how to properly make a Cheeseburger on the stove. My grandma has been watching the freezer ever since I learned how to make a Cheeseburger, she's afraid that I might eat all the patties (again).

PlatinumDude August 22nd, 2012 8:55 PM

I barely know how to cook, so I'm not really good at it.

Brendino August 22nd, 2012 8:56 PM

Despite being what I would consider a sub-par cook, I still end up making 30-40% of the meals that we have. I've found that my niche seems to be pasta dishes, which is good since that's my favorite food, anyways :D

When it comes to cooking other things that have long, complicated recipes, I usually tend to screw something up. I also am terrible at cooking meat (anything from steak to sausages to bacon), and if someone else doesn't help out with that, things tend to come out way over cooked.

Poke Fox August 22nd, 2012 10:56 PM

I want to be a chef. Not too good at making meals.

My grandma is teaching me to cook Mexican meals. I managed to prepare Menudo with a few simple mistakes. Not Enough Salt, or Hot Chilies. I can also make other simple stuff, huevos rancheros, steak (as in carne asada), quesadillas and enchiladas.

Like a cat, I love sea food. I tend to prepare a lot of it, peel shrimp, open oysters/muscles/clams. I also learned how to properly clean - take out ink - and properly cook Squid (became my favorite sea food ingredient)

Currently I'm learning how to prepare Japanese dishes - such as Sushi, Dango, and Yakisoba. I'm terrible at it. First I have to learn how to prepare, clean, and cook the rice.

To answer the questions:

Do you know how to cook? - For certain meals yes, I'm still learning
Or do your parents cook your meals for you? - Most of the time my grandma cooks, most of my family doesn't know how to cook either. My uncle and mom add too much salt.
Can you make extravagant dishes? - not yet, I'm learning
Do you know how to bake? - Yes, most of the seafood I prepare is baked - if I cook on the stove I use too much oil
What are some of your favourite foods to make? - Squid stuffed with Seafood mix (oysters, shrimp, muscles, clam, octopus and salmon)
Are you a good cook? - NO, I'm always improving by learning from my mistakes

Shining Raichu August 23rd, 2012 12:19 AM

I'm really not talented in the kitchen lol. The microwave is my friend and so is the toaster. Beyond that, I'm worse than useless.

I really have tried to be good at it though. Honestly, I have. I've watched Mum cook and I've tried to help her, but the furthest I ever got was the ability to chop vegetables for a salad that I won't eat because salad is gross :P

Avishka August 23rd, 2012 3:52 AM

nope i suck at cooking
i only know how to make maggi noodles, tea and some Indian things that my mom taught me few months ago:P :P

Kurui August 23rd, 2012 3:56 AM

"We're having hamburgers for breakfast?"
"D: Those are pancakes........."

Yeah. Please don't ask me to cook. You will be SORELY disappointed.
