Musings - Can't cook but wants to cook...

I can't cook.

I don't know what happens, I have all the right ingredients and the instructions right in front of me but what ever I whip up just ends up being a bit lacking. And it's not that I don't have the right inspiration:

I have been collecting cookbooks for a number of years in the hope that I will come across something that I can make that I don't turn into gruel. I am still looking for that recipe. Sob. Then recently I was talking to my friend about it and she said that cooking is 60% ingredients, 30% skill and 10% confidence.

"Confidence?" I asked,
"Yes." She replied, "If you start thinking that you are going to make something really tasty... you will."

Part of me thinks she was talking gibberish but then I am a sucker for gibberish. So much so that I am going to set myself a challenge. Once a week I am going to find a recipe and make it. It IS going to taste great.

Then I am going to make the husband eat it. :)
So watch this space. I will be swearing like a Gordon Ramsey sailor on leave type in no time.

P.s. If you have a recipes that are tasty and EASY feel free to send them my way.
