Hello everyone! This community looked like a very supportive place to be and that is exactly the environment I want to be in. I am 21 and I am not a chef or in the footsteps of one. I do prepare about 70% of the meals I consume now and would like to make it closer to 100. That way I have much more control over my health as well as my money! The only experience I have is watching my dad cook for me all my life and he is not a chef, just a home cook but a very good one at that. I plan to be like him and have the ability to cook for a family, some friends or an entire party. I am very inspired person and appreciate helpful feedback. I am looking forward to learning from all of you!
