Serious Eats: Talk

When did you realize you could really cook?

When I first started cooking for myself my meals were pasta based, and often involved a cream sauce, the first thing I figured out how to make. Now my repetoire is so much bigger and bolder, and it feels great! I'm hoping you will share some woah, I can cook moments with me.

This topic occured to me last night as I mixed roasted beets in with kale and fried up some tilapia. Two nights ago I had never roasted a beet, two years ago I wouldn't eat fish, and four years ago I'd never even tasted kale, and my life was a poorer thing then it is today.

Tell me how cooking has expanded your horizons, or how competency in the kitchen happned for you.
