My knife skills are also mediocre at best. Mostly I can recreate some tasty dishes that match restaurants quite well without recipes. I got a decent sense of a wide variety of spices and seasoning and how dishes are made (ex: various ways of thickening soups and sauces). But I'm snail-paced about it and it takes me a long time to prepare things.
Thank you for the MHGirl.
