Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hello! So I've been living in an apartment with my housemate for about two years now, and it has just now occurred to me that I've been living off of sandwiches and fast food for much longer than can be healthy. Plus, I've been wasting $Texas on prepared meals
I am going to make a serious attempt at getting my shit together and cooking. I have a few recipes that I can make that are pretty yummy, but they are simplistic and I've never really taken a shot at making meals for myself for any extended period of time. I want to be able to save money and eat in a more healthy manner by preparing most meals at home.
I need help.
What should I buy at the grocery store to stock up my kitchen? Because right now I basically have some milk, bread, and peanut butter. What's a good place to find recipes for beginners? Does anyone know a good book to buy for the absolute cooking idiot (I'm not even sure what 'simmering' actually looks like)? What sorts of utensils should I be buying? Is a food processor actually necessary, and what kind of pots/pans should I be looking for? Any advice or anecdotes from when you all were in my position, if you ever were? How do I go about planning meals?
Any and all advice will be appreciated, as will amusing stories about your own cooking adventures.
