Love to eat, Learning to Cook

I'm new. So let me introduce myself.

I love food and eating. I appreciate a long 3 or 4 course meal prepared by professional chefs, but I also enjoy a good ole eggplant or chicken parmesan sub at the local pizza shop.

I'm not a very good cook, but I'm really trying to get better. My husband is very supportive even when new recipes don't turn out all that well... But I'm determined to become a better cook because I love food!

Thanks guys! I'm already enjoying reading through old posts here quite a bit. It's encouraging to hear what other people are eating and cooking!

Welcome to DC.

As far as learning to cook you have a huge advantage, yes, yes, you like to eat. There are people that do not know how to do either one. If you like to eat that means you know what the good food taste like, all you have to do now is to make your food taste just as good. You are also lucky, your husband is supportive, when my wife was trying to learn to cook I would not eat anything that did not tasted good. So, as far as I can see this is another advantage. In my book you are almost there. Start cooking; do not be afraid to experiment. Taste what you made before serving (this is the key to a good cooking) do not serve anything you do not like your self.

Good luck and welcome again.
