I love to cook & bake & can do both, but I'm a better baker! As long as I have a recipe to follow...I can cook/bake anything. I would never make it on Chopped. I would fail & probably cry! LOL! You can't just pick up something, throw it at me & say, "make something with this". I'm always overly prepared when going grocery shopping. It'll take me all day just to make out my shopping list. 1st get all the recipes together of what I want to make, write the list, hunt for coupons, then make the list on computer (so it's nice & neat) & mark what coupons I have to use. It works out great!!
