New Kitchen!

chowfreak | Nov 16, 2004 11:19 AM

First, great new board.

I am moving into a nice, new apartment with a pretty nice kitchen. I am a novice chef who never had the space to really practice, and utilize the kitchen (also, lived w/ too many roomates). Am looking to get started making some nice dishes that are not too difficult, but are satisfying and cost-effective. Want to explore the wonderful world of soups this winter...What are some great, easy soup recipes that I can prepare large batches of and have on hand?

Also, what are some hounds favorite "special" meals that are not as hard as they end up looking? I love roasting a chicken, preparing steak in the cast iron, and make a decent lentil soup. Can you guys help me step it up or expand on my options?? As always, thanks in advance.....

Want to stay up to date with this post?
