Q: 34% of people who cook make this mistake when they cook.
A: They make things too spicy.
A new survey found 30% of people who cook HATE their own cooking and feel embarrassed by it. And the person who’s most likely to openly criticize your cooking is . . . your MOM. Followed by your friends, and your significant other. 64% of people in the survey said they’ve had a cooking “disaster” before. And here are the ten most common mistakes we make . . .
- Burning food. 67% have burnt something to a crisp.

- Forgetting a crucial ingredient, 38%.
- Forgetting something in the oven, 35%.
