Cooking with Steve

Earlier in the year, I took it upon myself to learn how to cook. I set my DVR for plenty of Food Network shows, like Good Eats, Iron Chef, and Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Rachel Ray just annoys me. I sifted the web for tutorials like: Cooking 101: 20 Lessons to kick start your cooking skill and http://busycooks.about.com/library/glossary/blglossary.htm (so I could understand what they were talking about on Iron Chef). I tried learning some simple things.

Most of those recipes I found on http://allrecipes.com/Search/Ingredients.aspx (which allows you to search by ingredient). This is a great way to look for recipes when you are cooking for yourself... as you can just sift through the cupboard/fridge & search for recipes with what you have on hand. Oh yeah, and a measure converter might come in handy for amateurs like me that don't feel ready to stray from a recipe.

Maybe one day I'll sign myself up for one of these fun cooking classes at the Sac Food Co-op.

Here is a collection of delectible recipes I clipped & fancy to try sometime:
