Be honest, how many from scratch meals, mainly dinners, have you mastered? Things you can cook without really thinking about it, that come out just right every darn time, no drama, no errors? Six? Twelve? Fifteen? More?
I am speaking to home cooks, of course. Pro chefs, you are in a different league.
Microwaved food, hot dogs, burgers, tuna sandwiches, and such excluded, please.
