Hahaha, I think my cooking skills edged out other suitors 5 years ago...

Cooking is too much fun, creating tasty savoury works out of nothing, serving it to earger guests or family. The reward is the joy you receive when they love it. Thanks for this topic.

Wow! I love cooking. For me, cooking is an art. I could wake up on a typical day, feel Asian, google the recipes and pull off a good meal. I have done this with meals from different regions so much that for my family, that surprise element is gone for ever.

Judging from how my family, friends and other guests rate my cooking, I will put my culinary prowess at 8/10.

I'll rate my cooking 7 out of 10. I never knew cooking can be tiring until I started cooking at home. But I'm only good at local Ghanaian dishes.

I think I'm at a 5. I don't get around to cook very often, but I'm hoping that will change in the future. When I do cook, I like to experiment with the recipe. It doesn't always turn out great, though.

As long as there's interest, there's no harm in trying.

You're welcome, Belynda White, any day! :) In fact, no need to come with your spoon, I have an array of highly exotic cutleries.

I would probably rate myself a 6. The dishes I do make, I make very well but I don't have a real high interest in cooking. I make meals that I have recipes for, mostly from my Mom, and rarely venture to make a dish on my own. I guess I do well enough to feed myself and boyfriend. Unfortunately for my belly, I love to bake and I am really good at that. I have to make numerous batches of Christmas cookies every year because everyone says I am the best at baking them and everyone wants them!

Sounds totally awesome! :tiphat: That'll be a wonderful experience. Let's drop by each other's reviews. I'm sure it'll be interesting. We may actually have similar interests. :D

Yes, Belynda, I think you're right. It will be interesting, no doubt. Your general candid opinion on reviews is admirable, will be of huge benefits to authors.

I would probably rate myself a 5 because I am still learning. If I had more time I think I would be really good at it though.
