In a year I will begin a life of my own by starting college. I will be living by myself for the first time several states away from any family. I am completly hopeless. I know nothing of housework or other things that go along with living without parential guidance. I will have roomates, but I can not be dependent on them nor expect them to know any more than i do of living alone. To start my journey into adulthood, I want to learn to cook. Only simple things that a college student is capable of. I hope to get this accomplished by next fall! 2 weeks ago

How I did it: From microwaving and ready-made meals to cooking 5 days a week...
After my boyfriend moved to my brother's and mine flat in my parents' house it was time to finally learn to cook!
My goal wasn't to be a supreme haute cuisine cook but being able to learn the basics. Handling spices and transforming recipes to my liking.
In the beginning my broyfriend and I cooked together. And it really wasn't very delicious. We decided on what to cook, went to the grocery store and then strictly followed the recipe.
But after a lot of trying, buying spices (escpecially different types of curry and dried herbs) we started getting the hang of it.
It was about then when we started to eat vegetarian and I began to make weekly lists of recipes and we would go grocery shopping according to that list.
You wouldn't believe how much money we saved with that! And it's so much more fun to cook when you know that everything you need is right there in the fridge just waiting to be used.
Now, after about 2 years I feel able to cook dishes I didn't dream to be able to cook myself.
I'm mostly cooking alone for 2 people and I never thought it would be fun.
I'm also getting more and more interested in baking my own bread, using only fresh ingredients and cooking low-carb.
It feels really good to be able to provide for myself, which is especially great because I don't have to go through this process when moving to my very own flat. Read how I did it… 2 weeks ago

It’s not that I’ve never cooked before – I have. When I was 13, I used to make a mean veggie lasagne, but, somehow, over time, I’ve just lost the knack, or the flair and creativity that I used to have.
I mean, a lot of people get this, right? You go away to university, and through the stress of all your classes and work you just end up cooking the quickest and most carb-rich stuff you can lay your hands on, right? Ramen, chips, pasta, microwave rice. But, I’ve had some friends who’ve put me to shame over the years. Yes, I’ve occasionally made Yorkshire puddings or tea loaf, but I want to make a meal that isn’t just ‘fish+2veg+rice’ or stir fry.
I’ve been asking for people’s help and I’ve already had some recipes from the internet, from friends and from my Nana … Now, to the cooking … 1 month ago
