Hi from Preston, UK

Hi!

My name is John and I live in Preston, UK. I am 22 and am a musician by trade and I also enjoy cooking. The problem is that I dont know a whole lot of recipes and am not very economical or efficient when it comes to thinking up ideas for new dishes!

I am usually left it a situation where I decide I want to cook a specific meal and then end up with miscellaneous items for the next day which I have no ideas for!!

anyway thanks for the coming help
John

Hi John and welcome!
I love to experiment with new stuff too, it's a lot of fun. But I know what you mean about extra ingredients! I have a bottle of apple cider vinegar in my pantry that has been sitting there forever and I can't even remember why I bought it in the first place! lol

Welcome to DC John!! John, as you make your specific meals, post your leftover ingredients in the sub-forum "What can I make with these ingredients" (or similar) and you will very quickly be inundated with new ideas! Otherwise, make double of a recipe and freeze one of the dishes when you can. That will help reduce your leftovers and also give you a spare meal ready to rock!

Shani, you should check out my cupboard sometime - I have eight or nine vinegars with most barely used except the normal malt brown and balsamic vinegars!!
