Strictly a hobby...

When I was in my 20's I hated the mere thought of cooking, ANYTHING!!

As I've gotten older I love going on the computer, and then into the kitchen to "experiment". Granted I am not good enough to make my own recipes, but I really enjoy others hard work, so thank you to all of you that are smart enough to know how to create wonderful dishes.

I have way more questions than answers, so I certainly won't have much to offer any time soon, but every now and then I may offer a nugget of uselessness for you to digest.

If something turns out great then let us know. If it turns out bad then let us know. I have learned many more truths about cooking from my failures because I know what NOT to do. Every time that someone says that tasted great I wonder what I did right and how I can do better. When someone says that tasted awful then I generally know what not to do next time.
Two things make every meal better. Pork Fat and Carbonation. It's that simple.

Welcome Aboard! There are some awefully good cooks here and some talented chefs. We probably all learned to cook the same way. The one thing I learned over the years is it is very difficult for me to cook when i do not want to. I take out or eat cereal for dinner on those rare days.

Hi Matt, Welcome to DC. Whether you cook for a hobby, as a business or just to put food on the table, this is a great place to talk about it, share ideas and ask questions. Stay awhile, I know you will enjoy it!

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

Is there a rank below "Assistant Cook" (under my name on posts)? Perhaps bus-boy, or floor sweeper is more fitting for someone of my talent?
