Well, I was exaggerating a little. I can make things where ratios of ingredients aren't particularly important. It's just where adding too much or too little of something is a problem that things go bad.

Get yourself a recipy-book with general/common content. Common recipies are easy to cook mostly and requires very little skill. Look at me, I am 15, have only cooked for a while and I am already able to cook on my own and even experiment with it.

Easy things to cook:
Mashed potatoes
Hamburgers (Pre-made ones are even easier.)
Meat balls (Actually same recipy as the hamburgers but formed in a different way.)
Salads (Pick your knife and greenery, mix down in a bowl... done!)
Soups
Pasta
Cupcakes

Stews and things made in an oven are the only things I belive may be difficult. Most troubles you met are due to a feeling of being inadequate and therefore many novice cooks drops the initiative and stands there gasping, "What am I supposed to do?". If you have eaten the things you are making, then surely you probably know how they are supposed to look like when they are done. Still having problem? Ask someone to help you (Not take over, help you.).

The fundamental problem is that I have an incredibly poor natural sense of volume. If a recipe says "1 cup" I'll put in half a cup one day and a heaped cup the next, and won't even notice the difference until I get the final result and find that it's inedible. There really isn't any way around this for me besides breaking out the measuring cups and painstakingly quantifying everything, and frankly I'd rather just grill a nice steak than go to that sort of effort.

Again, this isn't a problem when there's a lot of leeway in ratios of ingredients (as with most salads), but it's absolutely ruinous for things like cakes.

That recipy reminds me of egg nodles... Where is that noodle salad recipy I found the other day when I was buying grooceries?

If you want to add flavour to above recipe, put ketchup, tomatoes and ham between the bread and the cheese, and put some spice on the top (oregano is preferred). When ready, add mayonnaise at will.

I'll also give you the recipe of chocolate pudding. However, because I'm feeling lazy, I'll write it in finnish :D .

1 litra maitoa
1/2 desilitraa kaakaojauhetta
1 kananmuna
2 desilitraa sokeria
2 ruokalusikallista perunajauhoa
1 teelusikka vaniljasokeria

Jos haluaa, sekaan voi myös pilkkoa myös yhden banaanin.

1. Etsi sopivan kokoinen kattila, vispilä, lusikat ja muut mitat sekä lasi. Laita kattila levylle ja levy päälle. Etsi muutamia tyhjiä (ja mielellään puhtaita) lasikulhoja odottamaan vanukkaan valmistumista.

2. Kaada maito kattilaan. Sekoita mukaan sokeri, kaakaojauhe ja kananmuna.

3. Sekoita perunajauhot ja vaniljasokeri lasilliseen vettä. Sekoita seos muiden aineiden joukkoon.

4. Anna keitoksen lämmetä jatkuvasti hämmentäen.

5. Kun vanukas on tarpeeksi sakeaa, kaada se lasikulhoihin. Ripottele päälle sokeria ja anna jäähtyä. Muista laittaa levy pois päältä ;) .

1 kananmuna
2 decilitre granulated sugar
2 ruokalusikallista perunajauhoa

Gives up...

There's actually a good deal more than three or four. More like eleven or twelve. Swedes come and go.
Maybe this weekend I'll try to come up with a recipe involving sweet potatoes.

This is a delicious chocolate cake:

4 oz flour (white self-raising)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 ox cocoa
4 oz sugar (brown)
1 tablespoon milk
4 oz margarine
2 eggs
A few drops vanilla
A pinch of preferred spices (I put in ginger and nutmeg)

Mix together all the dry ingredients. Cut the margarine into small bits and mix it in too, and then add the liquids.
Mix all together. Put in it to a greased and lightly sprinkled with flour cake tin, cook in an oven at 175 degrees celsius.
Regularly stick a knife in until it comes out dry, then take the cake out. Time to eat!!

I have actually burnt water. It wasn't very clean water, but I did manage to pull off the cliché in bad cooking. Otherwise, I tend to suffer from Thuryl's problem, only I exacerbate it by trying to correct ratios that I think are wrong even when they're right. Then I end up with too much of everything in the wrong proportions.

—Alorael, who is also notoriously bad at following directions. This makes many recipes disastrous. The difference between Tbsp and tsp, a cup and a quart, or 200º and 300º can be remarkable. This as also led him to the creation of "death soup" by adding two cans of chili pepper instead of two canned chili peppers.

For the people who do not use British measure units, I have took the time to explain how much a fluid once is (Oz) and... err... I could not find out what OX stands for.

OZ = Fluid once = 2,84 cl

Well, err... hope this will help. = ^ . ^;=

"Clafoutis":
75g wheat.
50g sugar.
3 eggs.
4dl milk.
50g butter, melted.
Stir and put into a-whatever you want to bake it in.
Then put some fruit you like into it, like apple or wild berries or pear.Mixture is supposed to be something like very dirty water, but will turn out fine in the oven.
Bake at 180°, until it has turned a little brown a serve with ice cream, or cream if you like that more.

No. Its melted cheese on bread. When bread goes in the microwave it is simply heatd, not cooked. It also goes a bit soggy.

Frozen Feet: I have found that putting Barbeque Shapes between the cheese and bread makes it good. If you don't know what they are, nevermind.

Stug/Dolphin: I know I am very late in saying this, but I only just then read over the other posts. Those cookies sound good. :P

A recipie for mini quiche's that I copied out of my mum's cookbook:

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter (no substitutes), cut up
3 tablespoons shortening
5 to 7 tablespoons ice water
1 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
Dash ground black pepper
1/3 cup finely shredded Swiss or cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon finely crumbled crisp-cooked bacon (1 slice)
1 tablespoon snipped chives or chopped green onion
Red sweet pepper strips (optional)

Directions
1. Place flour and salt in a food processor bowl fitted with a metal cutting blade. Process until mixed. Add the 1/2 cup butter and the shortening; process with on/off turns until mixture is the consistency of coarse oatmeal. With the machine running, add 4 tablespoons of the ice water all at once. Watching the dough carefully, add remaining water 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough gathers into a ball. Remove dough from machine, and form into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and let rest in refrigerator at least 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Roll dough on a floured surface, until 1/8 inch thick. Cut twenty-four 3-inch circles of dough. Press circles into ungreased 1-3/4-inch muffin cups. Do not prick. Bake in preheated oven for 6 to 7 minutes or until pastry cups just begin to brown. Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 350 degrees F.
3. For filling, cook mushrooms in the 1 tablespoon butter or margarine in a small saucepan over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Set aside to cool slightly. Lightly beat together egg, milk, and ground black pepper. Add cooked mushrooms, cheese, bacon, and chives or green onion.
4. Fill each pastry cup with about 1 teaspoon of the quiche filling. Return to oven; bake for 10 minutes or until filling is set. If desired, garnish with red pepper strips. Serve warm. Makes 24.

I prefer the cheese on bread that has been in the microwave. It gives it a totally different taste.

I'm reminded of a Dilbert strip where he was trying to make soup and went as follows: Hmm, corn starch that's basically flour.... Marjoram, I think that's french for butter.... uh oh: 1/3 cup fine grated (some type of cheese I forget), well eggs are basically cheese that comes from chickens. He ended up with something that looked like a cake.

If ya like, you can also chop up a banana in the mix.

2. Milk goes into the kettle. Mix in sugar, chocoa and the egg.

3. Mix the potato flour and vanilla sugar into a glass of water. Then mix the results with the other stuff.

4. Let the stuff warm up and stir like your pants are on fire. FIRE!

5. When the pudding is thick enough, pour it into a bowl or sumthin'. Add sugar and let it cool off.
