Hi Tom & welcome!! I'm pretty new here too and I love it!
Try this for dinner sometime, it's easy and good....

2 chicken breasts (either plain or I like to use mesquite flavored) diced into bite-sized pieces
2 boxes of cheesy rice (with or without broccoli, whichever you like)

Brown diced chicken in a frying pan with 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil and 1 Tbsp of butter until nicely browned. Make the rice according to the instructions on the box in the same pan with the chicken and you're done! Add a green salad and dinner is done in 20 minutes! :o)

The Tatste of Home Cook Book. Is full of home style recipes like mom made
Another cook book I recomend is the New Joy of Cooking is a pretty basic guide to home style cooking. watch this site for all kinds of good information on basic cooking
At your new stand pick up Taste of Home magazine, Cooking for Two. magazine

Hi, Tom!

Welcome to DC. You'll find lots of help here. Just ask and ask and ask.

As for cookbooks, I'd recommend the New Taste of Home Cookbook see here.

I reviewed it just before it came out and I think it's one of the most comprehensive "basic" cookbooks on the market. Has great explanations and wonderful photographs. A super "tool" for those who wish to learn or are novice cooks.

Stick with Discuss Cooking and you'll learn more than you knew to ask and gain a new family, too.

We're glad you've found us.
