BumbleBeeMouth 01-24-2009 11:32 AM

im pretty good, i've got a good knack for flavour within certain cuisines, especially italian and indian

im less good at traditional cooking like pies and hotpots.

I can cook basic things but don't get much opportunity to do so or to try anything challenging. I would like to though.

hnibos 01-24-2009 01:04 PM

i can cook very basic meals. could do more if i tried i guess. too lazy tbh.

I think i am a good cook. Last night I made eggrolls that turned out pretty good and tonight I'm making angel hair with feta and sundried tomatos.

Eulogy 01-24-2009 01:45 PM

i just made and ate some tuna steaks.

this is all new to me. so far all i've done here is pasta, chicken breasts, and now the tuna. pretty hard to fuck those things up.

You'd be surprised.

I'd say pick one or the other unless you really like salty.

I'd say feta with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, and mushrooms maybe.

I'm pretty good but not pretty awesome so I will refrain from voting.

and since there is no sp_aced option I'm pretty much fucked

My lasagna (either spinach, veggie or bologna) is legendary. Everything else is acceptable at best.

ravenguy2000 01-24-2009 02:20 PM

I'm a good cook but sometimes my ambitions get ahead of my skills so I have pretty royal fuckups on a regular basis.

Also angel hair pasta makes me want to punch someone.

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 02:34 PM

penne for the win

carapatricia 01-24-2009 02:53 PM

I think I can cook pretty well off-the-cuff for myself. I cook a lot actually but its basically the same exact thing with different sauces.

Chicken breasst or ahi tuna steak
Roasted Veggies
couscous or whole wheat pasta.

My cabinets are filled with seasonings and sauces tho, so at least even tho I am eating green beans, zucchini and squash every night with baked chicken or seared tuna, it can taste different so I'm not totally bored. I always keep truffle oil and chili oil on hand and tons of shallots and garlic. jars of chutney and asian chili pastes.

I always have Naan in the freezer too, so I think i'll make chicken korma tonight.


but other than that, i have tons of recipe books. I don't really know how to cook much else than what i wrote above without cheating.

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 02:55 PM

i thought everybody used recipes just some people have them committed to memory

and whole wheat pasta grosssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

oh i love it.

I was such a cunt-y teenager I wouldn't ever let my mom teach me how to cook. I regret that, she's amazing- she can just throw things together and remember recipes and create her own great meals.

I am the only person in my house that knows how to cook at all, tho- i swear to god my roommates barely know how to use the microwave. pretty bad for 24-26 year olds.

better than new 01-24-2009 03:18 PM

I feel like if you can read you can cook. Obviously this excludes really difficult things, but the basics aren't too hard to figure out. I really want to get my Italian Grandmother to show me some of the "harder" meals because her food is just awesome. That being said, I feel like it's generally just laziness/not wanting to pay for real ingredients that keeps me from making decent meals for myself. Ramen noodles = 3 minutes on the stove whereas lasagna is kind of a production.

JokeyLoki 01-24-2009 03:31 PM

I try alot of new recipes, but some of the best stuff I've made, I've just sort of thrown together willy-nilly.

why were computer games more important to me than that

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 07:57 PM
