    I Cannot Cook Much. That Is A Fact.

    When my mom asks for help at dinner I give her the look that says "ooohhhh you do not want my help." I tend to under cook certain foods or burn them. I plan to learn to cook sooner or later but as of right now, I cannot cook. Side note: (Doesn't qualify as cooking, I know) I...

    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 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 :(

    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.

    Cookbooks Are Pointless

    Who can screw up a recipe even if they follow the instructions? This gal. Every time I finish making a meal by a recipe, I taste it and wonder....was it a bad recipe or did I just screw it up again? My husband laughs, he knows I'm trying, but it just never works. He says, "Those...

    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...
