I have taught myself how to cook since college and my advice about cooking is to keep practicing, try all sorts of cookbooks and different recipes, and don't be afraid to fail--you'll always learn something from it (of course, I'm a teacher so it makes sense that I believe that). I moved to Dallas 3 years ago and I love the ready availability of genuine Mexican food in the area. It's the one kind of cuisine I've never tried to make myself because the restaurants in my area are so good. I love movies, music from the 70's and 80's, animals, and beautiful weather.
