So /ck/how do I cook? I only know how to use a microwave, toaster and boil hot dogs and eggs. How do I learn how to make other foods from home?
Toaster is useless.
As for boiling hot dogs and eggs, bring water to a boil, and then literally boil any other food you want that requires boiling, it's the same thing, just not putting eggs or hot dogs in the hot water.
As for your microwave skills, buy frozen foods that require an oven, like pizza. Now there wont be a big flashy "READY IN 2 MINUTE" sign, but on the back it'l tell you the number to leave your oven on, and for how long. Wait that time and remove the food.
Well done you are ready for master chef.
You must first swallow an entire load of your own semen OP.
All the great chefs do this. For one can not truly taste food if one can not taste themselves, and tasting is 75% of the cooking process.
Pretty much this. Early cooking is like building Ikea furniture. Just follow the instructions.
Remember that in general you don't want your burners on high. You can always cook longer, but once it's burnt, it's burnt.
A lot of people hate this image, but it helped me, so fuck them...

Another simple rule, don't over-salt. You can always add a bit, but once it's too salty, it's too salty. Taste as you go.
I usually use potato cubes to draw out the salt, depending on the dish. You just have to pull them out before they are cooked enough to start falling apart In general I'm more annoyed by sweetness in my dishes than I am salt. The potatoes can then be thrown out, or served as a side. I've finished them off and made mashed potatoes with them.
Though, these days, I just don't oversalt int eh first place.
I've done this with soup before. I was using some shitty salt shaker to add salt to the soup, and the lid fucking fell off. all the salt...into the fuckin soup. all of it.
had to split it up in two batches and add more stock and potatoes.
Learn how to use a cooker. Pay attention to temperature and types of pan. Most basic cooking is underpinned by pan-cooking on a hob. Learn to fry the perfect egg and move forward from there.
