Talking New to Forum... and to Cooking!

Ello! How is everyone? My name is Tina. I'm a 20-something in the midwest who has just grown tired of frozen dinners and cereal. I am... well... I am not very domestic... This morning though, my most wonderful mum bought me a George Foreman Jumbo family size grill, a slow cooker, a massive (1,400 recipe) slow cooker cookbook, and a bunch of meat. She is awesome like that. I think with those two tools I might be able to have a fairly... friendly introduction to the world of cooking. I made burgers already and... they were slightly overcooked, but still def. edible, which in itself is encouraging to me! Anyway, I hope to spend some time poking around on here, learning things and making new friends!

Welcome! You're not alone, I'm also a novice cook that knows squat (except eggs ) about cooking...except I'm starting from scratch

He that would have the fruit must climb the tree.
Then he may eat the fruit, if he is hungry.

Well, you may cant cook (yet) but you sure got a nice mama !! Cooking is pretty easy, you just gotta get started. Start with some simple easy things so you will have a background of success and then build from there. One thing, pay really close attention to any food you eat anywhere, and notice just exactly how you want your food to taste. Analyze the tastes and textures and the subtle nuances, and then when you begin cooking you will know more what you are trying to achieve. And then get in the kitchen and have fun with it.
There are no bad foods, only bad cooks.

Welcome. Hard to screw up slow cooking (can be done though). Enjoy the journey!
