I am what you may refer to us a "what if" cook. I only cook when idea strikes. For example I would suddenly have an epiphany of substituting this ingredient for that ingredient in a regular recipe, I would put that into action and find out the result. Sometimes it would turn out so good, sometimes not so well. So if you ask me whether I'm a good cook or not, it will depend on the idea on hand.

I am certainly not a good cook, but I know how to cook. There are only few dishes that I cook at home or at a small party at home. I know how to cook spaghetti & carbonara, some viand dishes, beef steak, pork steak to name a few. I would love learning more dishes to cook if only I have more time to cook. Sometimes it is so tiring that after work, when you get home you still need to cook for dinner, so sometimes I’ll just go for a dine out whenever I feel lazy and tired cooking.

I can cook but I would say I am a good cook because my family loves my cooking. But I would not say I am an expert. I cook for the delight of my family and friends and I have some specialties which I believe are worth tasting nevertheless I have yet to learn more to make myself a real expert in the field of cooking.

Cooking is one of my interests and I enjoy it. I also have the talent in cooking. I have a blog concerning about DIY cooking and I upload my recipes there. I can share it with others and I can also check it whenever I want to cook for my family again. I love China

One of my favorite things to do is cooking and trying new recipes so yes, I definitely know how to cook. :-) And I'll have to say that most of the recipes turn out great, so I'm a good cook, too, because it's such a big interest of mine. What's your favorite recipe so far that you've created? I don't do so much creating of my own recipes, but it fascinates me!

Yes I know that how to cooks. Before few years I was a good cook. But now I am forget many things about cooking. So now I can’t say that I am a good cook. I think there are also many guys who are very good cook and always make many good dishes.

I can cook and love it. My skill is enough to ensure everyone can eat my food, don't die or sick of food poisoning and some even praise me back. But that just that. I don't consider myself a chef or able to open a superb restaurant. I love it when the dish that I make is love by everyone. I also love to experiment new recipe. I think cooking is important skill for everyone. At least we won't poison ourselves eating a meal that we make.

I am an amazing cook. I make all my own meals. Like to cook for friends and family. And thoroughly enjoy cooking and eating healthy much more than the average white 21 year old american male. I'm always experimenting with new healthy foods and recipes. And love to work with fresh veggies and seafood.

I know how to cook, love to cook, and am a good cook, too good for my own good, sometimes, to my detriment, as I also love to eat - too much. I enjoy my own cooking. I love to make most anything, especially spaghetti and meatballs and sausage. I love to make potato salad and coleslaw. Cooking is my only creative outlet. I invented a tasty and different tuna casserole. Simple, but clean. My granddaughter loves my meatloaf, hamburgers, and grilled onions. I learned to make a great cheesesteak with peppers, onions, mushrooms, and broccoli rabe. I also make a good sausage, onion, pepper, muchroom, cheese and marinara sandwich or entree. Enough for now; I'm making myself hungry.

I am not as good at cooking as I would like to be. I would like to be able to take some cooking classes so that I could get better at it. I would like to be able to cook nice meals for my wife...

Yeah, I've been learning cooking in the past two years. Now I'm still not good at it, but I'm satisfied. Currently, I can cook a range of dishes. Sometimes my friends can eat the food I cook, and they say that's great. :) I'm so happy. In my opinion, if you cook for your love and your family with love, you can really enjoy cooking and make them tasty.

I am a terrible cook. I make a good salad, and i can make some nice sauces by mixing other sauces together. I can also make bake beans on toast, and boil and egg, but thats about it to be honest. I cant even fry an egg anymore without burning it, which is annoying as i used to be able to cook nice eggs and stuff. I can still make burgers/hash browns and the like, but they too end up a bit burnt. And i wouldnt even know how to cook a "real meal" as you said lol!

I can cook but not really a good cook. I'm trying to be a good cook that's why I always cook and also invent my own recipe. I also want to enroll in a culinary school.
