Condiments: Are they a sign of a cook?

I recently paid a visit to a very dear friend that lives on the other side of town. She loves to cook, or so she says, but there is never any food in her house when I'm there. She has an extremely limited spice rack, and her pantry and refrigerator have nothing beyond the basic condiments. So, I began to wonder exactly what she does cook. I have so many condiments...several types of oils, sauces, vinegars, honey, mustards, spices,etc. so much that I often have to clear out the old to bring in the new.

So, it got me to wonder - what is the sign of a cook?
