Hello one and all (WAVE)

Hello all in/on the DC, My names Liam, I'm here to ask for help and or advise about my situation I'm 21 year old and work 40+ hours a week (Nights).
I'm considering moving out of my dads to get my own place, But about the most i do with cooking is your basic all day breakfast.

But this dose not make well for your everyday meals, So i would like to learn what makes a good meal? and the best ways to cook these meals, preferably with speed.

Any questions feel free to ask ill be checking everyday and your help or advise will be appreciated thanks, Liam

While you are considering the move, spend some time in the kitchen at Dad's place paying attention to what's going on there. From there it's one big wonderful experiment that we all get involved in. Some experiments turn out great and others, well, not so great but we keep at it. So can you, welcome in.

Welcome to D.C.!
You are in the right place for answers to any of your cooking questions.

Hi, Liam. Welcome to DC We don't really have a section for student recipes. Not sure what those would be anyway

Check the Meals in Minutes and Budget-Friendly Meals forums, though. That should get you started.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Hello Liam and welcome!

The other thing you would have to consider if you were thinking of moving out and want to start making some meals for yourself, is acquiring some basic cooking items - pots, pans, utensils, bowls - that sort of thing. The supermarkets do basic ranges of these for pretty reasonable prices, so it might be worth collecting a few things before you leave the nest! (Or even get mum/dad to donate a few spare items if they have them!)

Oldvine's suggestion of getting into the kitchen at home and trying out a few things seems like a pretty good idea too.

Also, as you like "breakfast" I will assume you like eggs and bacon/sausage etc? So how about making a "Spanish Omelette"? No major cooking skills required, it's quick, tasty, and nutritious and you can adapt it to whatever ingredients you like or have to hand! (Just a thought if you are finding the range of recipes here a bit daunting.)

Anyway, don't be afraid to ask - there are no silly questions - and everyone is happy to help!
