Smile Ok, lets get this out of the way

Found this site from one of the other "Social Knowledge" forums, figure it will therefore likely be useful and have decent moderation............

.........Anyway, last new recipe I cooked was a baked potato in a microwave - and I had to Google how to do that ..........figure at 43 time to expand my cooking repetoire a bit - time will tell how that goes

Welcome to DC, David.

It appears the the potato you cooked didn't kill you so you are well on your way.

Have you tried to boil water yet?

I got into cooking late in life as well. It was a post divorce necessity.

The journey of a thousand steps starts with just one. Now that you know how to nuke a potato, we can walk you through doing one in a toaster oven then eventually you will graduate to the big oven. See how easy baby steps are?

Cheers for the welcome folks

Gotta lotta reading to do, then the questions will surely follow...........


(BTW came accross from Cruisers Forum - so apart from trying to add some much needed variety to my home cooking am also looking for recipes / skills / cooking methods that can be used in the confines of a yacht from ingredients that can survive afloat..........I like a challenge )
