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.

12. Let them eat cake

Just put one of these around your house, boom, instant security system.

11. The squeaky wheel

The true shame is in still trying to get in the express lane afterward.


They’re proof that somebody out there loves us.


9. Let’s spoon

This tweet is making a big splash.


8. The sound of settling

I refuse to believe that omelets are real.

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.”

4. Budget constraints

For just the price of a cup of coffee a day, you can have coffee.

3. The ghost of crunchies past

I’m sorry, no, I don’t know this feeling, because WHO THROWS AWAY A BURGER?

2. Under pressure

I’m out of orders, this whole SYSTEM is out of orders!

1. Pasta la vista

More is more.


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.
