Baby Steps in Cooking

I have always wanted to be an awesome Top Chef, especially after watching the show. Still, I seem to have a terrible touch when it comes to cooking, with everything that I make turning out burned, black, or simply overseasoned. I decided that I would start out in baby steps when it came to cooking by checking out different cooking apps on my iPhone. Seriously, there are so many choices and helpful tips that I don't even know where to begin!

Everyone out there may think that I am a big-time cheater, but my first "cooking" attempt was actually a chopped salad. Yes, I know that it does not count as cooking at all, but I wanted to make something really delicious and creative that I could enjoy. How many times have you been to a fancy Italian restaurant and have eaten a chopped salad that was to die for? That was exactly what I was trying to re-create, and I think that I should get points because I made my own homemade garlic dressing. The salad was truly delicious, and I shared it with my roommate. It had chopped eggs, mushrooms, provolone, prosciutto, black olives, lettuce, tomatoes, and chickpeas, and you better believe that it was the best thing that I have ever made... so far.
