I wouldn't say my former roommate Shannon burns water when she boils it, but when invited to a Friendsgiving she will bring canned cranberry sauce. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I love the stuff and am always glad to see her and the can. But she does step out of her comfort zone from time to time and actually cooks things. When we lived together I remember her making her boyfriend-now husband a chicken dish with some sort of preserves. And recently she sent me a 911 text asking for help with a broccoli salad.
