For Beginner Cooks

Hosted by Dwana Townsend
Group active since Sun, Apr 03, 2011

My Son who is 29 has learned from his grandmother and myself how to cook, however my daughters ages 22, and 20 were never interested in the art of cooking until they moved away from home. Now I spend hours on the phone with them walking them step by step even on the basics of boiling noodles.

This would also be a great group for new brides or grooms.

country cook:

I'm the old fashion country cook,,and I would love to make some new and exciting things,but every time I try a new recipe it turns out awful,and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I get everything measured out one by one and add it as it says to but it doesn't come out right. now I can throw things in together anyway and its so good, I don't want to do that I want to be able to make new things with new recipes.
Help I need it

symbol trick

I'd love to share this great little trick with everyone that you may not know. Instead of writing out the word degrees, just press the ALT button and 167 and the symbol will appear.
How neat is that!!!!!!!!!

New to group

Hi My name is Earnestine and I live in Shreveport, La. I love to cook, and especially bake. I have started baking with yeast, it still gives me a thrill everytime that it rises. I wanted a bread machine for Christmas, but I have been making some very tasty rolls, so I guess the family won't be getting me one. Looking forward to being in the group.

Help for Beginners

I am from Southern Louisiana, A CAJUN COOK. Cooking has always played a strong role in our culture, but it's dying slowly due to outside interests of our younger population (internet, I pads, I Phones) as well as prepared frozen foods or fast food hamburgers, etc.

The younger generation has lost interest in cooking in general. But most importantly the cooking of their heritage. For those who are new to cooking this is a great opportunity for us to share family recipes as well has Beginner type recipes.
