I kinda can cook, but I'm a bit stupid in the kitchen so I don't do it that often. :x

I can make... Spaghetti and sauce. Other than that it's pretty much boxed things like Mac 'n Cheese, etc etc. I do want to learn how to cook more things but at the same time I'm scared I'll blow up the kitchen attempting.

When I try to cook I somehow take the flavor out of everything I touch. No one ever enjoys my cooking but they eat it anyway because they're nice.

Hey, Roc. Didn't even recognize you because of the new theme haha.

I forgot to say that I also seem to be incapable of cooking without ending up with burns. Heck, I nearly started a fire while making ramen. ._.

Putting stuff in the microwave is about the extent of my cooking skills. I tried baking cookies once and it ended disastrously.

I'm not very good at cooking. All I can confidently cook are instant noodles, eggs, rice, carbonara, macaroni & cheese...and that's about it. I can kinda cook other stuff such as fried rice and vegetables, but I need guidance because I'm afraid I might do something wrong and spoil everything. If I'm cooking, I need step-by-step instructions, either written or spoken, as an indicator that I'm doing the right thing lol. I want to learn how to cook properly, but I'm afraid that's going to take quite a while.

I just can't cook. I learned a few things in Foods class, but I have yet to put them into use.

I made some delicious chocolate brownies for Easter, but ruined them by covering them in nasty hot fudge... But that's fine with me, because I normally fail at brownies :D

The first time I made cookies by myself was when I made sugar cookies 2 years back for a get together with friends. I ended up adding too much sugar and they caramelized too much in the oven causing them all to stick to the pan. I had to throw away about half on the first baking sheet and some on the other. .-. But the ones that I managed to save turned out alright. A bit too sugary according to my brother but I enjoyed them.

Usually I bake them with my dad and I roll the dough into balls and place them on the sheet. Usually chocolate chip or already made up cookies that you just need to bake.

I've tried baking with my mother's assistance before :3 We used a recipe that came out of a recipe book for marble cakes. After watching my mother bake for a number of times, I tried my hand at it myself. I did all the measuring and sifting and mixing the ingredients while my mother helped out with the oven and the nitty gritty details. The marble cake turned out juuuuust right! T'was so moist and chocolatey~ I brought some to class and everyone said that my mother should open a bakery. xD

Wow, you all seem so skilled in culinary arts... I baked only ONCE in my life and it was a cupcake. The cupcake turned out to be the color of poop green...

But did it taste good? That's all that matters.

I have to cook all the time for work. I'm not a certified chef, but I've been trained by coworkers who are actual chefs with culinary degrees and the like, so I'm a pretty good cook.

Well, I've worked both short-order and fast food, so I can at least tell you when somethings burning

On a personal level, I seem to be a polorizing chef, It either turns out amazing, or it turns out to be barly food, I just can't make an average meal. For some reason meals that take a bit more time to make like Lasagna and Sheperd's Pie turn out better then the quick and dirty meals like Eggs and Toast, and god forbid Ramen Noodles.

I can put frozen stuff in an oven.
Other than that, I can cook rice and spaghetti. And some fried stuff. Not much else.

I really have to learn how to cook decent stuff.

I heard some kind of poison tastes like almonds, so I'm not sure that's the "only" thing that matters

I reallyenjoy cooking for others but not all that much for myself. I've always wanted to try and make a proper beef wellington but it takes like 3-4 hours or something like that. Would have to be for a special event.

Cyanide, and it's often described as "bitter almonds" or some other flavor. I like my murder mysteries.

yes, and I would manage a guess that a bitter almond taste wouldn't taste very good...but I could be wrong.

I remember reading a story once where a lady has a house guest over, and she poisions the guy and the only way you discover he was poisoned is because the tea tasted like bitter almonds
