It is evident that the Enhanced Community Quarantine has brought out the inner chefs in us. To some, cooking comes naturally; but try as others might, boiling an egg is the farthest their skills (or patience) could go. Thankfully, it isn't the end for non-cooks as Fastfood chains and other restaurants are offering ready-to-cook versions of our favorite menu items. This does not just mean having our cravings fulfilled, it can also be an excuse to 'flaunt' cooking skills that weren't there in the first place.
