    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...

    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 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 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.

    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 :(
