My name is John, and when I first got married and started learning how to cook, it was not pretty. I literally had trouble trying to figure out how to turn on the stove, and it was awful. We ate burned dinner night after night, and it was really frustrating. One day, I realized that I needed to learn more about cooking, so I started focusing heavily on practicing my techniques. This blog is all about understanding cooking principles and trying to get better at a difficult craft. You never know, you might be amazed at what you can cook up.
