New here

I know almost nothing about cooking. I need to learn quick because my parents kicked me out, my girlfriend left me, and I'm sick of McDonalds. I figured out a few things on my own, so I'll give you dudes some pointers, too.

What is your meal plan for the week? Hamburger helper or something a little more fun?? Do you have a crockpot? Are you starving when you get home or can you take an hour to cook a meal (if needed, normally it doesn't take that long).

Welcome to DC!

Sounds like you'll fit right in to our "single guys who can't cook, college cooks who can't afford to, cheap eats, and ramin noodles" forums!

Oh, wait -- we don't have seperate forums for those ....

Hang around ... I'm working on it.

Anyway - we're glad you found us! I'm sure someone in here can help you with any question(s) you may have!!!
