Today is Thanksgiving in the U.S., one of the few American holidays where the only things you're expected to buy are groceries. Some cooks like to go all out (see: turducken), others prefer to just go out. What kind of cook are you?

  • Everything homemade from scratch, bread, pie, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce.  Traditional all the way.
  • i am a cookie cook. chipit chocolate chip cookies are the only kinds i can make, but they always taste goood :)
  • Я повар отменный. и так думаю не только я, но и все кого я угощал своими блюдами. главное чтобы было желание и для кого.я не считаю сам, что умею готовить. но то, что я приготовил можно ЕСТЬ и это доказано.
  • Well if I hadn't been invited to a friend's house...I woulda probably spent all day playing videogames, then realized that I had forgotten to eat and probably woulda cooked up one of those complete meal thingies with turkey and gravy and stuffing...I don't cook.
  • I think I'm a pretty good cook and I actually enjoy cooking.  I would love to take some cooking classes but I just don't have the time.  When I do find time to cook and create new meals, I can whip up a few tasty dishes.  I make a really great green chili stew...yum!  I also can make a great pot of turkey chili and it's healthy for you.  My husband is the grill master and he can grill just about anything.  I made a few yummy dishes for Thanksgiving this year and they were a hit...cranberry and apple stuffing, roasted orange cranberry sauce and some killer sweet potatoes.

  • Turducken is ridiculous. I'm the ask-Tess-if-I-need-water-to-make-pasta kind of cook. No, that was a special case and kind of silly. But I do have to ask Tess for everything.
  • I, personally, am a horrible cook. If it can't be taken pre-prepared out of the freezer and thrown into the oven at between 350 to 450 degrees, or thrown in the microwave on high for 2 to 6 minutes, then I'm probably not going to be able to cook it very well. The exceptions to this rule include (and these are marginal at best): Mac-n-Cheese, instant mashed potatoes, tuna helper or chicken helper (the meat product coming from a can), scrambled eggs (but not bacon), toast, hamburger helper (I can even brown the ground hamburger), spaghetti with hamburger and pasta sauce (see previous on browned ground hamburger), grilled cheese or hot ham-n-cheese sandwich, etc... But to cook a ham, or to cook a turkey with stuffing and fixings. That is something that I just do not have the knowledge of skill base to accomplish. Even Karen says that when my mom and her mom have passed away years from now, the Thanksgiving Dinners that we know now will be a thing of the past.
  • I prefer to make a homemade cooking.  
     Broil Pork, white rice, red beans,
    carot, celery and colws salad
    Punking pie and flan
    Medalla beer, cidra and fruts
  • I'm a funny cook. I work in a kitchen, so i'm aware of the absurdity of it. When at home, I like to down a bottle of wine, and fucking chuck everything into a pan, stirring the contents and making sort of approving noises while pushing my nose into the air above the steam. When I eat it, i'm so fucking pissed I don't give a shit what it tastes like. Then I have a sandwich instead.
