I've never really been a happy cooker, I prefer to eat out. When I do cook I get frazzled easily. I have cooked several of the recipes from this website and have found most delicious and the feedback very helpful. I am trying to develop an interest. I'm jealous of all of you who seem to really love to cook and are at such ease in the kitchen. UPDATE: It's been a year since I originally input the prior information. I am now much more at ease in the kitchen and rarely grumpy when cooking. This site is responsible for the new me. I am changing my cooking level today to intermediate. Everyone on AR has helped me achieve my new level and I look forward to learning and cooking more. I am going to keep working on my skills and hopefully be half as good as most of the members on this site. I love AR and the confidence and education I have received from everyone here.
