Glad you made it to DC Home cook.
The folks here are wonderful.
Cooking is fixing what you like and how you like it. No sense spending time making something you won't eat.
Read and enjoy. If you want easy I think the "Weird Meals" thread has a lot of potential for that.
A heat source and what you put on it are the basics.
Sometimes a heat source isn't needed.
What you get as a finished product is only limited by how much effort you want to put into it.
Get to know leftovers if your looking for easy. They can be one of your best friends.
