      How well can you cook? Are you a god in the kitchen, or more of a disaster?

      I cannot really cook - anything complicated I try often goes wrong. Having said that, I can do simple things and have managed a lasagne and a homemade fishcake on a few occasions.

      I am not a great cook but I can rustle up some great meals and even some great deserts if I put my mind to it :) lasagne, tuna pasta bake, roast dinners, victoria sponge, stew, curry and stir fry are probably the dishes I would say I am best at when it comes down to it :)

      I am not a great cook and I really don't like cooking but I have gotten better in the last few months since getting married. Luckily, my husband went to chef school when he was in high school so he does most of the cooking. Works out pretty well.

      I can cook but am not an expert to it. I can cook native Filipino dishes which I learn from watching cooking shows and from my mother. I hope to improve in cooking and hopefully go to culinary school and take short courses there to further please my family's taste buds, especially my husband's. :)

      I can cook decent enough- except for bread items! I always burn the bottoms. I'm starting to think it's our oven though lol. I like cooking but there are always so many dishes! If I had a maid to do them I would cook a lot more :p

      I already know how to cook rice and fry some dishes when I was in grade school.And right now, I know ow to cook some local dishes like adobo and sinigang. I used to live alone and it is a must that I know how to cook or I end up eating fast foods or much expensive dishes.

      I can cook well enough to get dinner on the table but not well enough to make up my own recipes. I have never thought that I was a very good cook, but my family never seems to complain.

      The most cooking I've ever done is a plate of macaroni. xD

      I think I would be able to cook anything if I had a set of directions, though. Cooking really isn't that hard if you know what you're doing or at least have a set of guidelines.

      Yes I can. Like some dishes more than others. I can cook almost anything.

      Dont bake much as far as cakes or pies.

      Grill a lot!

      I can cook fairly basic meals from memory. Things like spaghetti bolognese, dinners (meat & veg stuff), lasagne and other fairly simple stuff.

      When things get a little more complicated I need recipes, but I can follow them pretty well and things tend to turn out edible at least :)
