Growing up as a child, I never took an interest in cooking. There were several matronly women in my life who tried to teach me, but I had no interest for cooking. At the age of 18, I moved out on my own, and began tentatively cooking for myself. I was off to a good start, I didn't burn water, so to speak. Then I moved in with my fiancee who has much more complicated tastes than my own. I began cooking dishes for him and pleasing him. I naturally caught on to it, and now I am doing great and learning more each day. www.allrecipes.com helped me to a great start with easy recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, stir frys, pasta, finding creative things to do with ground beef.
