Ineptitude, not exactly an art form ...

I watch a lot of the Food Network shows; I'm a slave to Top Chef though I have no idea why "oh grawtin" has become "grat-tan" or what a ceviche is ... I had the opportunity to purchase a nice Cuisanart (? spelling) from a coworker as she was upgrading to something else (she was sorry she sold it to me later); however, I have only had it out of its box once. I placed some cabbage in it to chop up for slaw and never could get the durn thing to even turn on. I want to use my gadgets, I just don't know how! I have a nice breadmaker I thought I would use to at least create the dough for me and that also resides silently in the box on the top shelf of the pantry. I thought making my own honey wheat bread would be healthier, though I would probably be tempted to eat more of it than I should .. I'm painstakingly slow when I chop veggies, I don't have knife skills and barely even have a sharp knife.
I don't know how to cook fish, thus we don't eat it. We live on a monotonous diet of chicken, lean beef and CARBS .. I'm turning over a new leaf to eat more healthy, I just also need to learn how to do more than what I already know. I want to like to eat sweet potatoes and find a salad dressing that is healthy AND tastes good.
The flesh is willing but inept!
