Hey!!

Hello! So im really excited to start checking out these forums. I recently acquired my own apartment(well i share it with roommates) and ive never cooked before. Seriously, i cant cook. I tried boiling an egg and it didn't boil, it made me feel kind of pathetic. Anyways, I was googling something and I got directed to these forums so im really excited! hoping you pros can teach this novice something new

Welcome! About boiling an egg, first lesson - don't watch a pot waiting for it to boil because it will know you are watching and it just won't boil! :)
