    I'm Told I'm a Great Chef...

    ...but it wasn't always so. To this day, I have people remind me of one episode of stupidity. I was a freshman in college, and I'd gone to my room to eat lunch that day so I could work on a project. I remember it was a Tuesday, because on Tuesdays all freshmen had to take that...

    Almost Burnt My House Down

    Its was about two and a half years ago, cooking hot dogs and I fell asleep...I awoke to my landlord screaming and smoke all over the place. Lucky for me I met someone that does all the cooking.=)

    Its Always Popcorn

    I literally cannot make popcorn without burning it. I don't know why. I've exploded marshmellows, broken the turn plate, set things on fire wrapped in foil, put food that shouldn't go into the nuclear zap machine that I wish could. Even tho I don't own a "Micrawave" I...

    Just the Once!

    Much Better

    I've gotten much better at it and only leave the food in there for a minute at a time but I used to stink the house up with burnt popcorn. EEWW! That stuff stinks! We lived in a dorm for a while and had a mini fridge and a microwave so you learn to cook all sorts of stuff that...

    Who Can't?

    Everyone CAN burn food in the microwave. Doesn't mean they do, but they have the capacity for such a task. I don't think I've ever burnt something in there though. I either don't cook it long enough or just right. Actually, I take that back. I did burn one thing in a microwave...
