My housemate who has spent a good chunk of her life in the US told me about how if Americans say they'll make cookies, more often than not they mean take out a roll of premade cookie dough they bought at the store, cut it into slices and bake it in an oven.
I on the other hand, leaned while living in England that the English looove putting grated cheese on everything. Everything!
