Are you any good at cooking?= Can you cook well?

To be good at something -- able to do something well.

Hope that helps.

One thing I like doing is singing. Unfortunately, most people don't like it when I sing because it sounds horrible. :shock: ;)

In other words, saying that you 'like doing something' is not a guarantee that you can also do it well.
