We've teamed up with YouTube Star You Suck At Cooking and Clarkson Potter Publishers for a giveaway.
Do you suck at cooking? It's okay to confess all those burnt fries, ruined soups, spaghetti disasters (Who fails at spaghetti?! You). And yes, even that General Tso's recipe those #foodbloggers made look so easy, you turned it into General No's.
We get it. We all can't cook like our favorite Food Network shows.

TURKEY ROMAINE SLAB
This breadless, carbless, nearly weightless open-face sandwich might make you question whether or not the word “sandwich” has any meaning at all. One thing to keep in mind with all open-face sandwiches is that the ingredients have zero aerial protection, which means this sort of sandwich is not ideal for eating in the pouring rain, or during an aggressive hailstorm. However, the waterproof underlayer makes this the best possible sandwich to eat while surfing, snorkeling, or stomping around in a dirty rain puddle.
1 romaine lettuce leaf
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 slices smoked turkey, plus more as desired
¼ avocado, sliced
Fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste
1. Admire the romaine leaf’s perfectly inviting concave curvature. Spread the mayo on the romaine like you would on a slice of bread, but not too close to the edges. There is no crust to guide you here. I trust you, so trust yourself.
2. Lay the 2 turkey slices on top (use more turkey if you prefer). Place the avocado slices down the center. Season with salt and pepper and dab with hot sauce. Take a bite, and think about pickles while you are chewing.
Notice we are deliberately breaking the rules of homogeny here, as there is no need to slather the mayo up to the edge of the lettuce, or even evenly. That’s because this sandwich gets folded into a half-pipe as it enters the mouth, resulting in a natural blending of the ingredients.If you’re making this slab for a friend, a fun trick to play is to dot the hot sauce into a specific shape, then see if your friend is smart enough to connect the dots. Will she notice that you’ve created a pointillist giraffe, or will she be too hungry to care? If your friend notices the shape and wants to connect the dots with more hot sauce to complete the picture, STOP HER IMMEDIATELY. If she uses a bunch more hot sauce to draw the giraffe, then the giraffe will be red, which is the wrong color for giraffes.

It was 11pm in Nevada, September 21st, 2019. Luckily, my truck broke down right outside a tiny diner with the faint glow of a red neon sign that flickered "The Beach Hut”. It was a Hawaiian-themed burger joint in the middle of the desert.
I ordered a cheeseburger and nibbled on the fries, dipping them in Sriracha. At least I remembered my Sriracha2Go Keychain......
