The lack of a simple "thank you" from a first time poster happens so often here, and it can be discouraging to be sure.

I think we need to just keep in mind that the information we offer could be of help to strangers who just come here to read. Keep up the good work friends!

Definitely. I'm not running off in a snit over it. I'm involved in golf and photography forums too, and it happens everywhere.

I often wonder which recipes people try when they ask for a recipe...would like to hear feed the back.

I have many years ago stopped caring if a 'newbie' bothers to say thanks or give their feedback on a recipe other forum members offer. Who cares?
I'm always much more interested in exchanging ideas and information with like minded folks.
"This is my first post. How do I roast a frozen turkey?". LOLOLOL!

Looking at Layla's profile, her last activity on DC was 45 minutes after she started this thread. So no, she didn't even read the first post.

You have to love it when someone says "I look forward to hearing from many people," but apparently didn't look forward to it enough to ever bother checking back again.

It makes no sense when drive by posters post and move on.

But the info is still valid and makes for interesting conversation.

Hi Layla
I am going through the same phase as yours. Even I want to start of before I start a life with my partner. I have tried out many recipes through youtube and have also depended on cookbooks too. Some of these came up really well. Now I am concentrating on trials with herbs and spices blend. These add a different taste and also is healthy.

Hello Lucretia and Welcome to DC. If you are just learning, this is a great place to start. Really good people here. If you have a question, boy do we have answers. We love pictures. So don't hesitate to show us yours. Even your failures. You learn from your failures. Stick around and jump into the fray. It's a lot of fun here.

In the event that the OP comes back, I'm new, too. Much older, but learning. I so agree with the person who said to just make food and remember that if you need to, you can eat something else.

So far, I've made exactly one thing that I couldn't eat. LOTS of mistakes, but most were still okay and some were really good, even with the mistakes. :)

I really like the Kitchen Confidence book by Kelsey Nixon. It has tasty things that aren't too terribly difficult to make...but are involved enough that you learn some things as you go. It's where I started and I keep making things in there...they're all good. Every single one I make, I like.

Check out the cooking shows and see if you can't find someone you like. I like Alton Brown on Good Eats. :)
