Brooke: can't cook. Not really. But she can feed herself perfectly adequately, which is alright by her. Her style of cooking involves careful reading and following of the directions on the box of mac n' cheese or can of soup. And oatmeal, and grilled cheese. Tasty wonderful grilled cheese. When feeling really ambitious, she'll painstakingly follow the directions for a box of cake mix or Quaker oatmeal cookies.
Julia: has been cooking since she was about 7 years old. She has a thing for pastry, and is a bit obsessed with food. Delicious, delicious food. Pigs are her favorite dead animal, but she tries not to make the other dead animals too jealous.
Rick: started to learn about cooking from a very young age and after some experimental years (yes, Tabasco DOES go with tuna!) has become quite a decent cook, specializing in solid, hearty dishes such as chili, stroganoff, home made pasta sauce, or homemade from scratch soups and pie.
Thad: was trained in the fine art of pizza making at his father's side and every now and then will actually try to cooking something other than pizza.
Nobody has died from his cooking so far and that's just aces!
Jeff: is a fair hand at the world of cooking. He enjoys grilling the most, though the cruel grasp of winter tends to put a damper on that. His breads, pies, grilled meats, and chili are enjoyed by all but the heathens who refuse to try them.
