Smile Hi from Oklahoma

I'm new and just wanted to say hello to all. I'm kind of new at this cooking thing but I'm learning lots as I go. I'm ashamed to admit that as my kids grew up, I never cooked much of anything unless it came from a box, a bag, or a can. As a result of a diet I went on (lost 113 lbs.), I decided to take up cooking as a hobby. I've been at it for about 1 1/2 yrs. now. So, please be patient with me as I may ask some rather silly questions, but also know that I'll be more than willing to help answer anything I can.

Welcome DSL - I'm the only one who asks silly questions around here. All the rest are good, sometimes you might get a silly answer! :)

Like David said, there are no silly questions. The silly thing is to NOT ask a question and ruin it!!LOL

Hi, and welcome, dsl.
I guess you did alright with the box, can and bag. Your kids, I would assume, are no worse for the wear.
But I'm glad you have found food can be fun, and an adventure, and still be healthy.

Enjoy the Forum. And ask away.
