8 Things Every Bad Chef Can Attest To

For those of us who lack skills in the kitchen, Worst Cooks in America seems like a plausible TV debut.

8 Things Every Bad Chef Can Attest To

I've never considered myself the best cook.

  1. Every ounce of our paycheck goes towards saving up for the next meal out, whether it be fast food or a fancy Italian dinner. The 2 for 5 at McDonalds never tasted so good.

  1. And maybe, just maybe, the day comes when we don't burn anything, nor is anything undercooked, and we can be at ease knowing the thing we just made is edible and doesn't taste completely awful!
