I love reading about and participating in discussions of cooking here on the Dope, and in my ~five decades on this rock I think I’ve managed to become a slightly OK cook. There are things I do well, there are things I do poorly, and there are things I couldn’t do if I wanted to. But I’m leaps & bounds better than my mom, who can barely cook a simple casserole.
Specifically, I like to use fresh ingredients when I can get them, and I’m in a transition process of cooking more from scratch and less from processed ingredients. I can make pretty good spiced carrot fritters, vegan chicken curry (which is neither vegan nor does it have chicken in it*), various pies & cakes, and some other things. But I’m not above throwing a frozen pizza in the oven, either.
So how good of a cook are you?
Poll to follow.
*Vegan Chicken Curry is a joke Mrs. Homie and I came up with to describe my curry. It’s vegetarian (no meat), but not vegan (uses cream).
