Look, I might not have the culinary skills of of a Jamie Oliver or an Ina Garten or a Chef Boyardee or an old can of pencil shavings, but I do my best in the kitchen, damn it. And as long as I’m trying, that’s all that should matter, right?
I can at least take solace in the fact that the people of Twitter have my back when it comes to obsessing over food and the endless pursuit of being good at making it. Like in these 13 deliciously delightful tweets!
13. Smoke on the water
And fire in the sky.
Smoke detectors are basically just devices telling you that you suck at cooking.

12. Let them eat cake
Just put one of these around your house, boom, instant security system.
Number one, why these shits so hard to open?
Number two, they loud as hell.
Whole fuckin country know you tryna get a piece of cake ?? pic.twitter.com/ellkzReCgJ

11. The squeaky wheel
The true shame is in still trying to get in the express lane afterward.
My walk of shame is going back for a shopping cart after realizing I can’t carry 23 items in my arms through the store

They’re proof that somebody out there loves us.

9. Let’s spoon
This tweet is making a big splash.
When you try to wash a spoon and it wash you back

8. The sound of settling
I refuse to believe that omelets are real.
There are approximately 45 seconds between "I'll make us an omelet" and "We're having scrambled eggs."

7. Dinner and a movie
I can’t even chew unless something’s on the screen.

6. Midnight panic
I remember when I first used a microwave that didn’t beep. Life changer.

5. Great innovators
“This food could use more of itself.”
Whoever thought of appetizers was literally like "we should pregame this food w more food" and I think that's really beautiful

4. Budget constraints
For just the price of a cup of coffee a day, you can have coffee.
me @ $2 sandwich: It’s affordable but is it filling? If it’s filling, will it provide me with enough satisfaction? What is the nutritional value of this…? Maybe I should save my money…
me @ $4.75 coffee: mmm cofy

3. The ghost of crunchies past
I’m sorry, no, I don’t know this feeling, because WHO THROWS AWAY A BURGER?
You ever been so hungry you start to think about all the food you've wasted "like damn I wish I had the rest of that burger I threw away"
— Alyssa Carr (@alyssa_marie134) April 10, 2016
2. Under pressure
I’m out of orders, this whole SYSTEM is out of orders!
When it's your turn to order, but you haven't rehearsed it 5 times yet….. pic.twitter.com/AAy9HdfjkZ

1. Pasta la vista
More is more.
How to cook the correct amount of pasta:)
1-pour out how much you think you need
— kayla comried (@KComried) April 9, 2014
It’s good to know I’m not the only person on the food struggle bus. Makes me feel pretty proud of the fact that I made an entire sandwich today and only cut myself once.
