I rate myself about 50%. I'm not the best and not the worst. I can boil water. teehee. I can make pies. I can fry stuff. I can bake okay. I don't claim to be a chef and don't wanna be, 'cause chefs seem to have big egos, plus they take too long getting stuff just "right" when all I wanna do is enjoy eating, period. ha

I think there's a difference between a mom who "can cook" and one who comes up with "mom's cooking" (I think a lot of that 70% I gave myself has to do with the fact that hungry people are usually happy to have someone who knows what they like prepare a meal for them, and only rarely make a mess out of it.)
