Bonjour from Pennsylvania

Hello everyone,
I happened to stumble upon this community searching for some grilling tips and I found some excellent ones so I figured I'd become a member. I'm 25 and never really learned to cook, but I'm learning slowly. I have taken to it as more of a hobby than as a chore due to the fact I enjoy it and it is refreshing. Art without the messy paint or bad mustaches!
Anyhow I am divorced which at first didn't help the cooking situation because I became Mr. McDonald's numero uno customer, but that has grown old very quick. So on to the mission......learn to cook well. I am an open book to this site and can't wait to learn everything possible. See everyone around.

Much of cooking is just mastery and refinement of a few simple techniques that apply to most recipes. The basics don't take long, and before you know it you'll find your own style.

Welcome to the forum!
