Cooking is a necessary evil.

My worst mishap was probably when I tried to hardboil too many eggs in a pot at once, and they didn't cook thoroughly. I kept trying to re-cook them, but they WOULDN'T COOK.

Another was when I was managing 4 dishes on the oven on election night. I was trying to listen to the news, so I ended up letting the yams burn. My mom had left them on the oven without telling me to watch them, so it was kinda her fault they burnt to a crisp. She's the only one who likes them anyway. But she was still mad about it.

Cooking is a chance for me to experiment. There's not much in the selection of food places where I live so cooking was the only outlet for me to truly try something new. I've cooked on grills, stovetops, even a pot with a makeshift fire in it. I've even cooked during the holidays. Though it wasn't nowhere close to how my mother makes it, still turned out good.

The worst accident? *flashback to Okinawa, Japan*
I saw a Japanese dessert in a store and wanted to try making it. I was doing fine till I had to fry the dough. I put oil in the pan *holds head* and it was too hot! I burnt it badly and the house stunk of burnt sugar dough! *screams* I never attempted making desserts like that again till I got a proper deep fryer to cook with.

On a positive note, I excelled at making paella, soups, korean bbq ribs, and fried squid. I loved the fried squid, especially with green chili sauce from Pizza Hut. Found out after asking one of the employees that they get it from Tabasco. Go figure

i love to cook though sometimes my laziness gets me and i end up eating pizza or other junk food.

i prefer cooking asian food because its tasty and usually not too fat. but sometimes some nice german "hausmannskost" is nice too=).

my worst mishap would be: never had one i can remember. of course i cut my fingers a few times but thats nothing big and happens to everyone. as far as i remember i was luckily always able to turn a dish i messed up into something still edible and more or less tasty.

I can cook very well, but I'd love to learn plating. It would make my dinners even more interesting.

My puff pastry I was making exploded in my oven once, I never touched anything puff pastry related ever again.
Having said that, I am a terrible cook. I'll make a terrible housewife one day haha~

Cooking is one of my greatest pleasures. I love cooking more than I love eating. There are times when I cook just because I want to cook, although tasting the finished product is also a great high point.

I don't have a specific masterpiece but there are several that stand out above the rest. Fresh tomato spaghetti with chicken, daifuku mostly from scratch and chicken udon soup are among the most difficult yet deliciously worth it. There's also a beef curry that I made with a myriad of vegetables, a good mix of spices and Anaheim peppers, Serrano peppers and birds eye chili. Not the most difficult dish I made but arguably the most delicious.

As for my greatest failure, I burnt some tuna belly on the grill. I totally forgot about it and given a few more minutes, I could've used it to fuel the grill.
