What is food without Instagram? And what is Instagram without food? The two go together like dogs and Snapchat. However, one account has set out to challenge this relationship. Instead of focusing on perfect compositions and delightful colors, Cooking For Bae is sharing some of the most unInstagrammable photos ever. From chitterling tacos to a pile of burnt ash, you might feel like a Michelin-starred chef just by looking at these struggle plates. The best part? They come with hilarious captions as well.

Luckily, even these "chefs" can up their culinary game almost instantly. There are plenty of easy-to-follow cooking tips that can add flavor to most of our dishes.

For example, Eat This, Not That! advises to always taste throughout the cooking process. Tasting your food with clean cutlery while you're preparing it can guide you, making it easier to stop short of over-seasoning your food.

Turkapus. Octakey. Or if that's just a big chicken: Chickapus.

If you're a carnivore, bring your meat to room temperature before cooking. If you're starting with meat that's been in the fridge, you can run into all sorts of problems, for example, the outside may still char when it hits the pan, but the inside will remain cold or lukewarm unless you overcook the whole thing.

This is a honest attempt , buns are tricky to do. They may very well taste nice 🙂

The EveryGirl also offered a few tips. Like, don't overcrowd your pan. Even if you think you have enough room in your skillet for an extra piece of chicken. Don’t risk it. There’s a chance the heat won’t distribute evenly to the rest of the food inside the pan, and not only the flavor can suffer from this. You can create a health risk.

Another thing you can do is store your spices in the right location. To prolong their life, keep them in a cool, dark place. Don’t put them on top of the stove, the heat and humidity can alter their flavor greatly.

And lastly, just remain mindful. Cooking is a never-ending learning process, and the best you can do is admit your mistakes, forgive yourself for them and strive to improve the next time.

Eh, it doesn't look awesome (not something I'd ever photograph) but it looks like all edible ingredients and probably doesn't taste too bad (though most likely not exciting, either). Sometimes things turn out more mushy than they ought to be.
