    This show is so weird to watch. In my country everyone knows how to cook this basic, even little kids know how to make scrambled eggs and stuff like this. And to see old women having no clue how to cut a fricking onion makes me so dissapointed in America, and the grey haired girl who says just buy the frozen onions.. wake up americans, and dont be this lazy and irritated about actually cooking something
