1. You put something in the freezer ahead of time and forget to take it out.

2. A "raw food diet" just means eating ingredients you're too lazy to actually cook.

Watch me die from eating raw pasta now cause my family has left me with no food for a week and I can't cook to save my life

What smells like burning?? Oh, right. It's everything. :(

8. You're supposed to follow a recipe but you can't even spell it properly.

I will always remember today as the day I cooked dinner, rubbed my eyes, and then learned that jalapeños are NATURE'S PEPPER SPRAY.

20. You consider "puncture both sides of the plastic cover" to be gourmet cooking.

"Let stand for one minute before removing plastic." LOL no. I am a very busy person. Please stop shouting at me???
