Any advice for an 18 year old that has no experience with cooking and is going to college next year? I need to stop making eggs 50% of the time.

pic related, it's what i eat cause i'm lazy

Watch cooking shows. Real cooking shows, not reality tv
>>
learning the heat settings on your particular stove is going to be the hardest part of cooking
>>
>Watch "easy" cooking shows (Giada at home, Jamie's 15 min meals, etc)
>Watch cooking youtube channels that aren't trash (don't watch Cooking with Ja/ck/ for example).
>Actually START to cook, the best way to learn is to do
>Broaden your horizons when it comes to tastes and flavours
>Work your way up slowly when it comes to difficulty

Honestly, the harder skills (knife technique, time/heat management) will come through practice.

Beans and eggs and potatoes
can get you through some hard times brother

Eat in the college cafeterias.

how do people even have problems with basic cooking? if you have a recipe you're literally just following instructions.

The cafeterias? You'll save more money just eating there plus it's easier.

I'm not trying to sound like an ass, but how is it possible to suck at cooking? You can learn via the internet and recipes hold your hand.
