Can Your Parents Cook?

Part 2 of parents cooking day.

Partly inspired by @lilmynx13. My mom (dad burns toast) can't cook, but the tragedy is she thinks she can, ergo hundreds of recipe cards annotated with her "tweaking" and "creative input". Which is how the cumin and sesame oil spiked lasagna comes into the picture.

In addition, she's a technical nightmare. Heat is king. Vegetables are roasted to a burnt sad death. Is this typical or cliche? Stories? And is it better to realize you suck or suck and think you're good?
