    Can you cook any food at all. And if you can, what percentage would you rate yourself in percentage%?

    As for me i can cook well. I can even bake a cake. I rate myself 70% good.

      YES I CAN!

      lol

      Can't everyone cook to some degree?...

      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

      Don't want to toot my own horn but I feel I am a very good cook. I suppose I would rate myself a 9 out of 10.

    I pretty much can't cook, but for my entire adult life I've seemed to have been able to have bluffed my way by, I guess, knowing a handful of basics, a couple of tricks, and knowing how to draw the line on my tendency to get just a little creative when baking.  I'm great with a pot of coffee, though. So, I guess I'll give myself a 30% (maybe 20%, maybe 10%) for "knowing how to cook" but a 70% for knowing how to come up with meals for a family (and having them like most of them).  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.) wink
