Geez, that's just what I need - someone (thing) to "hold my hand" while I figure out the cooking part! Stuff you can just throw together, I'm great at - stuff where there are actually procedures Thanks for posting that

Yes, Thank You !...from me too!

Ostarella...I'm with you. When a recipe is just throwing things together...I'm not scared...LOL ! 9 times out of 10...they come out great for me !!! But when it gets into more ingredients / more complicated preparation...well, it's more like 1 in 10 that works out. *Big sigh*

Take Care & Hugs,
Christy

I'll just keep trying my best...*wink*

Oh, isn't that aggravating? I think I just need a crutch. I used to be able to whip up pie crusts that were soooo flaky and nice - but my mom was always right there in the kitchen with me. Even if she never said a word. Now, on my own - gad, I throw away more crust than we eat.

Yes...very aggravating! I have never attempted to make a pie crust...I've watched my mom (her's too turn out flaky and so perfect!), my sister and yes, even 2 of my nieces (all three do a pretty good job...close to what mom does)...but I won't go there!

I have to admit, part of my problem with cooking at all is I just don't feel like it most of the time. I mean, there's only me, so... And then when the family comes home, I get so nervous about them making fun of my cooking, I end up giving them something to laugh at anyway. I can't win!

Oh, how I know what you mean !!! *sigh* Yeah, it's just me too. I do "help" when my family and I get together for meals...but that's different...it's just them and me and they really don't give me any "grief" over my cooking. Now, my ex-husband was a different story...he'd pick and aggravate me ! *insert rolling eyes smilie here* Teasing is one thing but I couldn't make ANYTHING like his grandmother or his mother ! Sort of discouraged me in doing much cooking for anyone but myself.

I'd like to meet a guy who see's my lack of cooking skills as an "adventurous challenge" in showing / teaching me ! *wink*

I'd rather just find one that cooks for me. I'll mow the lawn, he can handle the kitchen...

Thumbs up Macrobiotic Cooking Videos!!!

I fully agree, thanks a lot for tipping us on this website! Got quite a few good tips from the video's.

Actually, I'm a bit of a reluctant cook - it definitely is not my hobby. But one has to eat ...

To be honest, I think Ostarella is absolutely right: that would be my choice too!

I'm going to take a look at that website. I think everyone benefits from healthier eating habits.
