Cooking 101

Cooking basics

Cooking 101 is a new segment of this site geared toward exploring how to learn to cook. I will cover common cooking questions and resources for the home cook who wants to cook more or have better results.

I am not a formally trained cook, but I love to cook and love to eat. Over the years I have gathered a number of tips and tricks that help me to cook and bake with great results. 

My mom was my first teacher and I have many magazines, television shows, cookbooks, cooking videos , and mistakes in the kitchen that have helped me become a better cook. I hope my experiences outlined at Cooking 101, can help others figure out how to learn to be a terrific cook as well.
