Do you know a website that teaches the basics of cooking without recipies? 15 months ago
Like many people, I can cook using recipes. What I would like is to get a sense of what ingredients go well along, and be able to improvise. 15 months ago
How I did it: I bought some cookbooks that sort of addressed my issues with cooking: too many dishes are complicated and take waaay too long. I have no patience to wait for food unless I'm in a restaurant with company. I got both of the Martha Stewart Everyday Food books and Dinner Tonight: Done! by Real Simple. Most of the recipes have ingredients that can be found at a typical grocery store and most of the ingredients aren't too expensive (the big exception to this is when you venture into the seafood sections of these books-- I can't afford to buy sea scallops when they're $15+ a pound). None of the recipes have prep time over a half hour. The Marthas can be bland, but they're still good and easily fixable most of the time if you just add more seasoning than what the recipe calls for. The Real Simple book is just great.
