Mom's should really be teaching you the basics during Christmas break before your last semester of college.
Go away, KA!
I definitely want to take cooking classes in the near future. I'm intermediate, but I'd like to learn a lot more.

"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
I got over 100% each year of middle school home ec. I even did a lot of extra credit.
I would make someone a good wife.
I'm pretty sure I impressed my roommate's girlfriend on Saturday night. She needs to spread the word about my meat.
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
I know you were playing around with crock pot recipes not long ago.
Even the most basic human being can figure out how to do that. Throw in raw chicken, a chopped onion, a can of tomatoes, a chopped carrot, come back in 8 hours, tasty meal that makes several servings. There's no skill required in doing that.
So I call BS on people who say they have no idea how to cook. And it sorta scares me for the future of our country.
cooking is alot of fun, i probably spend the last 15-20 minutes of my workday looking up recipes for my dinner that night. Tonight feels like a sausage and peppers kind of night.
Not fun - getting home and realizing you forgot to defrost the meat you planned to eat.
My dad can't cook at all. He's still in the 50s mindset of "it's not my job." My mom is a decent cook, but not too much variety. I'm increasing my catalog of dishes, but new additions usually come when my wife makes something, I decide it's really good, and then either have her show me how it's made or give me the recipe. Cooking is awesome. Plus I find it relaxing - something you can focus on and not worry about whatever else happened that day.
I think shopping effectively so you have everything you need to make something is more of a chore than actually cooking. If you have to go to the store to buy something specific to cook, you might as well just get takeout somewhere.
If you can't cook an egg you should probably just get a handicap permit
ITT Slatter posts his favorite easy recipes for n00bs to try out tonight.
I definitely did "How to Cook a Scrambled Egg" as my "How To" Speech in like 2nd Grade.
My biggest issue with cooking/eating healthy is that healthy ingredients go bad so quickly, so I don't want to buy a bunch of fresh produce and watch it go bad as quickly as it does. Plus, fresh spices/herbs come in such large portions that you never use them as quickly as you can make them when you aren't cooking a large meal for people.
Being on a college budget doesn't leave me a bunch of options but I can at least prepare chicken 20 different ways. How did you guys graduate without knowing how to grill/prepare a steak, make eggs etc. I mean most of the time I'm really lazy and just dry rub steak with salt pepper, and a few spices and cook on one side of a George Foreman grill but still I know how to do it in a pan if I wanted to.
Seriously though cooking chicken?! Defrost and cut into pieces, throw them into a pan with some oil. Season with salt pepper garlic salt paprika and a little jerk seasoning on high heat. Delicious
Growing up, my mother made sure we could cook a little, and it comes in handy when you are living alone and, you want to save money. Eating out or just getting take out can get expensive. Plus as JDawg said, it is a skill that can attract women.
This. Using a grill is a rite of passage into manhood.
I am horrendous at baking (cupcakes, cookies, etc.), but a huge food otherwise. My school didn't offer housing after first year, and it didn't make sense to resort to frozen food. I just find life to be a lot better when I'm making food for myself and others.
There's nothing better than manning the grill with a beer in your hand.

This makes me so mad.
Healthy, citrusy shrimp tacos
1 lb cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped
1 tomato, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1/4 cup chopped onion
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
salt and fresh pepper to taste
1) In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup chopped onion, juice of one lime, 1 tsp olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper.
2) Let them marinate while you cook your shrimp
3) Combine shrimp, 1 diced avocado, 1 diced tomato, 1 diced jalapeño with the first batch of stuff. Toss. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with warm tortillas.
You have to explain to them how to cook the shrimp.
Also probably what "diced" means and how to open an avocado.
i don't understand you guys that are intimidated by cooking. the recipe tells you what to do, and you do it. it's easy.
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
It doesn't even have to take much effort. Buy boneless skinless chicken breasts from the grocery store. Find a salad dressing or a marinade, pour it into a Ziploc bag, marinate overnight. Cook it in a pan with a little olive oil and serve over pasta or rice. I like making risotto or couscous as an alternative side. And saute some veggies. IT'S NOT ROCKET SURGERY PEOPLE!
I was never into "legit cooking" (i.e., more than just making sandwiches, etc.) simply because I was too lazy, and when you're just cooking for yourself, it's a lot of work (or at least seemed like it). When I started being in "adult" relationships though, it behooved me to learn how to cook more to impress the ladies. Now I love it. My g/f and I cook together at least 2-3 times per week. I usually just use things like allrecipes ... it's really not hard to make most things, it tastes delicious, saves you money from eating out, etc. Cooking's great.
People really make it to adulthood without knowing how to cook eggs and such? I weep for our future.

That's what YouTube is for.
I lived in the North Campus dorms for 2 years so I ate 95% of my meals at the Diner. I lived in Commons my jr and sr year so I could walk to South Campus Diner or any of the restaurants on Rt 1. So I just did that.
please let us know if you find one, i am in the same boat. i tried to find classes and it looked like either sur la table bs or culinary school. i couldnt find anything in between.
