It should work, but in a hearing exercise, if they say "jij", you can't write "je".

Because "jij" is now after the verb. Whenever "jij" or "je" comes after the verb (which is called inversion), the verb loses its -t ending. It only happens with 'jij' and 'je', though!

Can this also be interpreted as "Maybe you can't cook" (i.e. where the lack of ability is inferred rather than explicitly stated)?
