    It's not that I can't cook --but I've never

    really learned. My mom was overbearing in the kitchen and micromanaged me so much that I was turned off by the interactions and how long it actually took. In my quest to better myself I've taken it upon myself to learn to cook-- and not simply to get by, but to actually cook...

    As long as you're a good mother figure,

    or able to do things for yourself you're good. Or maybe practice, or learn. I mean don't complain about it, after you have a brain that downloads data and information and how you learn things.

    I Can't Cook Meat

    I can cook pasta and I can bake goods and stuff. But, I can not cook meat. I don't like preparing the meat, especially when you have to wash it off, season it, and stick it in the pan. I never know how long to keep it in the oven. Usually I'm so scared to burn it that I just...

    I can't cook. I would burn down your home.

    I'm the type of girl who would order food and buy ton of books and tools. Have you come over and feed you what I brought. I wouldn't tell you I brought it. I would act like I made it. You would believe me because I would have the cook book and the tools and crumbs over my hands

    I really try but I just fail all the time.

    I'm gonna move out soon and I don't even know how to cook? I'll guess I have to watch A LOT of YouTube vids on how to cook or else I will fail in life. I always burn everything or like I mess up in another way! Ah :(

    Well I am a teenage girl at least.

    Some of my friends come into school with batches of cookies they made when they were bored. They make cake for a snack. For breakfast, if they have time then they will cook up some pancakes for breakfast. About two or three months ago, I figured out how to turn my oven on and...

    I'M A Teen

    I am 15 and I cannot cook. My mom knew how to cool by the age of 8 and so did most of her friends and everybody around adolescence time. Now times have changed. I am kinda embarrassed for the fact that I can't cook. I guess it also has to do with sexism. That girls should know...

    I love everyone's stories in this category,

    they're so funny and I can relate! I can make a garden salad or toast. That's about it. I know I have the intelligence to learn to cook but not the will. I would rather write, or garden, or paint, or go for a walk.
