    what... the meat expires? wtf. they never tell you how to deal with food.

    I'm hopeless in the kitchen. Although, they say the food is tasty. It looks like a disaster.

    There's one particular sweetbread called "Roth" that my mom makes at least once a year, for our Punn pooja (where we pray for prosperity within our home). She has promised me and my sister that she will pass down the secret recipe to both of us when we're ready - according to tradition, the head woman in the household is responsible for preparing everything necessary and for leading the pooja. I want to at least keep that tradition alive.
    That sounds absolutely wonderful. I love Indian food.

    Yes, and... what do people mean who say they can't cook? Do they mean they can't cook well?

    I am in the middle as well. My mother loved to cook for the sheer enjoyment of the activity. I am a good and willing cook, but I focus more on the end results. I do enjoy the challenge of planning and making meals for various groups and situations, or figuring out something to make with limited/missing ingredients, as well as experimenting with recipes. I don't like having to do any of this in a rush, though. Then it just becomes a chore. Having cleanup help does make things better.

    I enjoy good food, and want to share that with my friends. This means when we get together at my house, my SO and/or I make a real dinner for everyone, served at the dining room table on china with cloth napkins, etc. We cook for a group of 8-10 routinely, and have been known to orchestrate the odd summer picnic for colleagues and families, ~50 people. I almost get annoyed by the people who act impressed and carry on about "how much work this is". It really isn't, not if you plan ahead, choose the menu carefully, and don't leave things to the last minute.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Yeah, I've never understood this. I also never understand when people ask me to "teach them to bake." I'm always just like "Ugh, I followed the instructions..."

    Right but I think baking is far more of an art than cooking. Most people I know can cook to some degree but very few can bake. I don't think you can be taught to bake either. You have to do it on your own.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I was taught how to bake. mostly by watching my mom, then later trying on my own failing a few times, then finally getting it.

    I've been learning to cook lately, I love making good food but don't enjoy the process much. I'm too impatient, but once I get better at it I'll like it more.

    I suppose that's true. Although, I do think I have learned a fair bit from watching Alton Brown's Good Eats. But, most of it is trial and error.
