I cook, beware.

I made chili yesterday. I mentioned recently that I'm not a great cook. I bake well, but that's apparently a different skill. Things I cook tend to turn out rather less like they should. As an example, I forgot an ingredient in yesterday's chili. After an hour or so, it was looking radically not like chili, so I re-read the recipe to see what I missed. Turns out, I didn't forget something minor, like cumin; I forgot the chili powder. The thing that makes it "chili" in the first place. So I added it an hour late and let it cook longer. The end result wasn't bad, but this is typical of my cooking adventures. This is the reason Laura tends to do the cooking.
