I'm a young kid, 21, and I joined this site to learn more about cooking! Three years or so ago I made the decision to go vegetarian, and so I'm learning to cook without meat! It IS a challenge, but I want to learn to be a good (eventual) wife and (maybe) mom. My mom was a single mom, and didn't have much time to cook, so it's something I want to learn more about. I value homecooked meals and I love to make them when it turns out well. I like taking care of people, and food is definitely one way to warm people's hearts I think. Conversations had and problems resolved over delicious food with a lot of heart DOES make a difference.
