Welcome, Kevin. This is what I told my brother when he started to get interested in cooking more than hotdogs or burritos, start slow. Pick simple recipes and work your way up to more complicated meals. Some of the best food is the most basic food. Do not be afraid of making mistakes, it happens to the best of us. That is how you learn when cooking. Browse the recipes here at DC, there are lots of them, and see what interests you. I am sure we can get you off to a good start in no time.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
26th president of US (1858 - 1919)
