    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...

    YES, and I want to try being a housewife.

    Women who know to cook is great,

    wouldn't have to eat out or eat fast-food often lol. And your husband will be happier if he has a wife who can cook. But It sucks I can't cook at all :(((((((. I have tried sometimes but it wasn't really good.

    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...
