Hello from England!

Hi!

I'm Jamie, and I'm 18 from Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.

I have only just discovered my interest for cooking, I haven't actually yet cooked anything in my life!

Every weekday from 4pm-6pm I watch Daily Cooks Challenge, Come Dine With Me and Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals. I haven't missed a show in like 2 weeks!

With Valentines day coming up I thought I would attempt my first ever cooked meal for me and my girlfriend of 2 years. I'm going for a Cypriot chicken dish with asparagas and tomato, crunch salad, pitta breads and a coffee ice cream to finish.

So thats me!

Every woman loves a man who cooks for her, even if it's just something small. I think this is a wonderful idea!

Welcome aboard!

Welcome aboard!

And women fall hard for men who are the cooks. Girls get super jealous real fast when they find out someones boyfriend/husband can cook..it's wonderful.

Hopefully you can find all the help you need around here.
Someone is seriously always around to help out with problems so never be afraid to ask and never be afraid to pitch in.

You know what's sad? So few women my age (I'm 33) know how to cook anymore that guys my age have a similar reaction when they learn their girl can really cook. At some point it became unfashionable to be a domestic goddess. Thankfully I've never been much for fads, because I very much enjoy being able to cook my own meals and sew a torn hem closed again.
