Hello from the SF bay!!

Hello everyone!! I am a 25 year old male, who needs to learn how to cook for myself. I'm tired of eating fast food and restaurants all the time, or buying microwaveable stuff!! I need to eat healthier and want to prepare my own food!! I am located in the San Francisco Bay, trying to finish up school, studying art, computer graphics!!

ok, im going to post my cooking questions in the fourms now!! Nice to meet everybody!!

You certainly are in an area that has a bit of everything and you can find alll ingredients! I envy you.

What ever question you ask, someone here will help you. I used to think I was a great cook but I've found out that here are a double zillion things that I need to learn.

I can testify that this lovely group of people will graciously hold you hand and will answer any questions, no matter how mundane they seem to you, with kindness and knowledge.
