Easiest thing would be to find something simple to start with: rice, vegies, noodles, bread, some variation of potatos, etc, etc as a base. Since if you have a decent base you can experiment with different main ingredients and not have it always turn out bad.

Think the biggest problem for me, is cooking for other people. Generally, anything I make ill eat but getting someone else to try it may be difficult.

I started as a pretty crappy cook.

The kind that burns soup, boils eggs too much or too little and can't scramble eggs and so on

Through practice and practice and a uncanny fantasy and will to mix things I've learned, and now I fix beef, chicken, rice, home made sauce and other things with no real struggles.

well, i'm 16 and i've realised that i need to start learning how to cook in preparation for uni in a few years time I mean i can bake and do the usual vegetables and fry ups etc.. However, i'm not sure of what kinda stuff i should do to get me started. so ideas for simple and easy dishes and tips would be greatly appreciated :D...that's all lol


You should definately browse foodnetwork.com, they have recipes for practically everything and the level of difficulty is also noted. Along with estimated prep and cook time which can be a saver. The main thing with cooking that you should keep in mind is to take your time. There are rarely any shortcuts when it comes to preparing a meal, so take your time and play around with the ingredients and method of cooking.

A spicy salmon salad with balsamic vinegrette is a nice one to start off with. Simple and delicious. =]

1) mash potatoes: boil potato, peel potato, mash, add milk, butter, salt & little sugar, & your set really simple
2) spaghetti
3) pancakes breakfast 24/7
4) fried rice
all pretty simple stuff & u can modify the meal to however you like like blueberry pancake, chocolate chip pancake & seafood fried rice & italian style spaghetti

Knowing how to cook is very important. You can't get certain foods in some places, so knowing how to make it yourself is an invaluable skill.

I live in the middle of a freaking desert with steakhouses, burger joints and bad Mexican restaurants to choose from. However, I come from a highly diverse cultural background and enjoy eating alot of different types of food. Chicken teriyaki, sushi, luau pork, enchiladas, tortillas, salsa, puto, cake, curry, yakisoba, barbeque, baklava, spaghetti, lasagna, tabule salad, etc... I'm just lucky that I can cook most of them.

Hey I just recently made two new meals (for me)

Sweet and sour chicken with rice from scratch and some pasta. I'll start with pasta cause I just made it up as I went

1. First get yo pasta, boil it for 10-12 minutes or however long the package says

2. Whilst it boils get your red belled pepper chopped in inches or strips cut in half

3. Cut mushrooms into halfs then diagonals or just cut it in half depending on size.

4. Cut yer onions and garlic

5. Put yr garlic abd onion in olive oil heated frying pan

6. Should have been 10 minutes now XD If not, because youre a uber great cutter, cut your chicken into bite sizes and add them to your frying pan, this should be done till they are well cooked (not golden).SPICING: Chicken, season all, black crushed pepper, salt - don't go crazy

7. Drain your pasta, smuther it with margarine or olive oil and leave to cool.

8. Get plum or chopped can of tomato and tomato puree. I don't know if you know the small cans but if not use about 3/4 of a table spoon worth and mix it together with the plum tomatos.

9. Put mushrooms in and stir for 2 minutes (make sure you add some olive oil when it's lacking, don't drown your food though)

10. Put in youe puree and chop tomato mix and raise the fire stirring occasionally.

11. Put in your red bell peppers and also alittle more season all and black crushed pepper Stir for 5minutes

12. Lower your fire abit stirring for about 3 minutes

13. Add pasta and stir till your pasta is well covered nd leave on very low fire for 3 more minutes.

IT'S YUMMY. I'm kinda lazy, so I'll give you the website, by the way cornstarch also = cornflour if you have seewoo you can get cornstarch there but when making the sauce add in the corn flour in bits tasting it because it can become over-powering no matter how much pineapple you have.
