Good cook, or a bad cook? That is the question.

Welcome to Wondering Wednesdays, a weekly post to learn more about me and other bloggers 🙂 If you’re a blogger, please join in every week!

Today’s questions is – Do you consider yourself a good cook?

Let me say this – I’m a better baker than a cook. That’s not to say I am a horrible cook, I’m just not fancy, I probably wouldn’t last at a restaurant, but I can follow a recipe. I have a really hard time coming up with dinner ideas – so if you have some please share in the comments!! We have basically similar meals on a week to week basis. Boring I know. I’d love to spruce up our meals, but I either don’t know what to do, don’t have the means to buy “glamorous” foods, or don’t have time to sift through cookbooks.

I do own every single Pioneer Woman cookbook. In case you were wondering 🙂

So if you’re ever stopping by myself, don’t expect a five course meal. It’ll probably be spaghetti, or pizza, or grilled hot dogs lol. Maybe even a casserole if it’s during the winter months!

What about you? Do you consider yourself a good cook?

    Hubby and I both love to cook/bake. I would say we lean more towards good southern home cooking and less gourmet. I’ve come a long way in my many years. When I got out on my own, I wished I had observed my Mom in the kitchen more, but thankfully had many years with Mom to make up for it. It’s thanks to her and years of practice of trial and error that’s gotten me to where I am. Even at that, I think we still learn with every trip to the kitchen if we open ourselves up to it otherwise food gets boring.

    After cooking for so many years, it is now hubby’s turn. He took over cooking when he retired but I still worked for a few years. Plus he counted all the calories etc. I only cook when he wants something else. My go to is mac and cheese from scratch or potato soup. We don’t do a lot of baking. But I am better at baking than cooking. He tries to substitute healthy stuff for fattening and it just doesn’t taste the same. Biscuits with Almond milk just doesn’t cut it!

    I’m a lot like you, and I like to bake more than I like to cook. Like you I can follow a recipe, but I will do tend to be the same on a regular basis=)
