How did your early years of cooking go? What did you consider a sucess or a I'll never do that again.... My cooking first was trying to figure out how to boil eggs when I first got married (no lie). I didn't spend enough time in the kitchen with my mom like I should've (prior to my marriage). Dh and I had many frozen dinners the first year of marriage, it was very sad. I'm no Paula Dean or Alton Brown, but I can dream can't I? I don't frequent the cooking forum so I didn't know if this kind of thread has been done before.
