What kind of a cook/baker are you?

Can you make good somethings out of nothing, do you have to have recipes or something different? I stink at throw-togethers but I do pretty good when I have recipes.

  • I'm pretty good at throw togethers. Of course I can do recipes too, but I love to just throw a bunch of stuff together :)

  • I have to have a recipe and even then most of the time I mess it up. Now I bake much better then I cook. My dessert breads are awesome.

  • Yes I'v come up with new recipes out of nothing. Many of my recipes are not written down because I only use a cookbook recipe when I'm first trying a new recipe for the first time. I like baking and making desserts more than I like cooking.

  • If I have a basic recipe to follow, I do alright. I can't just pull random stuff from the cabinet and throw something great together. I can add to a recipe and make something better though. :-)That's for baking desserts and stuff.

    For regular food cooking, I am pretty good at just randomly tossing and having something good come out. :-)

  • It took me a lot of trial and error, a lot of unexpected pizza ordering and a lot of smoke alarms going off in the beginning to get me here though!

  • I do ok at throw togethers, nowhere near as awesome as my mum, but I've got years to catch up to her :)

    I can only bake without a recipe if it's something I've done a hundred million times and have the recipe memorized. I can't just make up stuff to bake.

    Everything I cook/bake lately has tasted really good, so I am definitely improving! :)

  • i think i do great with baking, and ok with throw-togethers. at least, i know we never have leftovers!!

    Answer by dullscissors at 8:57 PM on Jul. 17, 2010

  • I can do it, when I want, I like to try new recipes, I like to know how others bake or cook it.
    I would like to have my own personal chef.
