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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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