My name is Charly and I love to cook. I started learning how to cook at 9 years old from my parents and by constantly reading their 1976 edition of the "Joy of Cooking" cookbook. Along the way, I've made some small and big cooking blunders but I've never let it stop me from trying new and more difficult recipes. Cooking is like art, you need to keep reaching and refining your techniques.

I started this journal back in 2007 but never did anything with it. Recently a talk with a very good friend inspired me to turn this into a step by step cooking tutorial with plenty of pics so that I could teach my long distance friends how to cook. I wish I could be there in person to teach them but for now this will have to do. Maybe one day I'll get to travel around the U.S. and share my love of cooking with them. I hope they find this helpful and that it encourages them to try.

Note: I'm just a homecook with 22 years of cooking experience. I have no formal culinary training of any sort. It'd be cool if I did though.
