Quotable Sunday – Not Cooking

Today we are have a luncheon at church which means I do not have to cook so I thought it would funny to dedicate My Quotable Sunday post to….”Not Cooking”!

Enjoy and Please feel free to add your own!


“I can’t cook. I use a smoke alarm as a timer.”
Carol Siskind, American Comedianne.

“I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate.”
Julia Child

“My mother didn’t really cook. But she did make key lime pie, until the day the top of the evaporated milk container accidentally ended up in the pie and she decided cooking took too much concentration.”
William Norwich

“My mother was a good recreational cook, but what she basically believed about cooking was that if you worked hard and prospered, someone else would do it for you.”
Nora Ephron

“When compelled to cook, I produce a meal that would make a sword swallower gag.”
Russell Baker (1925-?)
