What are the biggest mistakes cooking?

It's a pet peeve of mine when people think al dente means underdone or under cooked.
What about totally overcooked pasta. Like people who think it is ok to leave pasta in a slow cooker for 9 hours and think that is edible.
I'm traumatized from spaghetti, not because the noodle itself is always bad... But because often it's not cooked properly IMO.
I cook all my pasta underdone, then finish in the sauce to make sure it's still firm.

Whoa!! You chop things in your "hand"???? Now there's something I would not recommend! You might do that once in our kitchen, but you wouldn't have any hands left to do it twice! Not with our knives.
I must misunderstand what you are saying because no way is it ever advisable to cut/chop anything 'toward' your body...ever!
Again, I must misunderstand, but I wouldn't even want to watch you show me this!!
