Hello

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm a working mother living in Houston with 3 kids (including my husband smile.gif).  I grew up watching my Mom cook but never actually cook anything before I got married.  I did the washing, chopping, and handing of the ingredients so I learned at least the basic steps from her.  

My mother-in-law is a nutritionist and she used to cater for parties. My husband and I lived with my in-laws when we first got married.  Besides the constant scrutiny for not knowing how to cook, I think I rose to that sad situation by learning and taking in information as much as I can.  After 3 years, we were able to move out of their house and my cooking adventures begin. I stick to cooking ethnic foods as they are my husband's favorites. There is not really much of a variety except for some recipes I would pick from a magazine, book or the internet.

I came to love cooking.  After a hard day at work, I can still go to the kitchen and whip something up for dinner whether it is something I have prepped over the weekend or a 30-minute meal.  It used to be a chore before but it feels different when you cook from the heart.

That's all I can say about that...

Welcome, Cook2feed! I think you're going to like it here a lot. I'm a home cook too. You seem to be adventurous and ready to learn even more. I learned to cook in much the same way you did, from my mom and grandmother. You "get it" that you learn and improve my diving in and exploring. That's why you're going to like it here so much!

 

The forums are great, but don't overlook the cooking articles, photo galleries, cookbook and equipment reviews and more that are also here. The members are a very rich resource, as we come from all over the world, several generations, many levels of experience, professionals and home cooks. No place else on the web affords an experience like Chef Talk for that kind of opportunity for home cooks like us! 

 

I hope you'll return here often to learn and to share what you discover. Don't forget to keep that camera handy! You just might want to start a photo gallery of your very own here. We look forward to your participation in the community.

 

Regards,

Mezzaluna
