I need some help.
Start out simple, crack open one of those dusty cooking tomes you paid your hard earned college money on and start cooking something. The recipes are in there for a reason, they work, while they may not be the fanciest or flashiest foods they are good basic starters. Then when you get that right look at changing it up, start out very basic add something extra or change one flavor, see what it does.
Most important thing to do is WRITE IT DOWN, when you learn what works you will want to remember what you did to make it work.
