I'm a terrible cook. I'd probably kill Gordon Ramsey with my food.
The most valuable thing I've learned here at Allrecipes is that my food doesn't have to turn out exactly like the "experts" dish. I always thought I was a failure because it didn't look like what I saw on tv, but since joining Allrecipies and seeing all the photos of people's dishes, I realize mine wasn't wrong just because it didn't look exactly like the original. When I find a recipe I want to try, I especially love looking at everyone's pictures of their results.
