where can i look for some not so expensive cooking classes?

Friday, July 30th, 2010

I need to learn how to cook….is there a website online that can help? or any cheap cooking classes? any suggestions are appreciated. im all ears =) thanks!
i live in pa

where I live (NC) we have continuing education classes offered at community colleges, they are cheap and short lived. Some are only one day and others maybe 5 days over the course of a month and a half. Some supermarkets have workshops too.
I would suggest going to a class or cooking with someone who knows how to cook because it is so much easier than a website or a book. Starting with that method will require much trial and error. Once you get some basic techniques down, a book or website will be much more useful.
Good luck, cooking is fun : )

Should I take my boyfriend to New York for 5 days for his birthday in October?

Friday, July 30th, 2010

He visited once, when he was 10, and he absolutely loved it. For his 29th birthday on Oct. I’m thinking of taking him back for 5 days. I’m also thinking of making reservations at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Times Square, since it has a kitchen and we can cook our own meals- which would be more economical of course. What do you guys think? Good idea or not? Serious answers only please!

Whats more economical is staying at a Motel 6.
Better yet, don’t take him. Just show him a DVD of New York City, that’s way cheaper. That way when you two break up you won’t regret spending all that money on his birthday present.

A question for New Yorkers.?

Friday, July 30th, 2010

I currently live in South Carolina and Memphis is as urban as I’ve been exposed to. I plan t go to culinary school in New York though. Any advice you could give me about going from a rural to an urban area, staying safe, and finding a job/place to live?

well you should def save up live in NY. (in a one bedroom condo on the upper west side it costs 1000 a month for property tax alone. its not a big condo either!) find a job before you move here. and finding an apartment is pretty hard so get started now! look in the ny newspaper websites. you could be put on a waiting list for more than three years! i suggest finding a place (for manthattan) from down in the business district (downtown 20′s) up to 110th street. i like in new york and i don’t like going past 120th street because it gets a little scary for me there. it doesn’t matter if you want the east or west side. but for the east side the lower the avenue you’re looking at (ave not street) the harder it is to get there. west side isn’t as hard.

and start looking for a job now too. once again try the newspapers. and websites online.

i think that it’d be best if you visit a couple of times before you move to get used to the train systems. in a way, learning the train systems are like an art ya know? unless you want to take a taxi everywhere which is totally up to you but def costs more (2.50 initial charge and 0.40 for ever 1/4 of a mile. at i think .20 for every minute you stop at like a light or something. going 20 blocks in a taxi could cost you around 7 dollars when you could just take the bus/train for 2.00)

also staying safe. stay in well lit areas? its pretty simple as that. uhm in the trains when you see bums in the corner of the train car move to a different car (cuz they reek) and when they ask for money don’t give it because it is illegal. if you see a bum going through the train yelling at people about how you are such a loser just ignore them and look down. don’t try to pick a fight with them because then they’ll never go away.

a couple of tips for the train. buy the 30 day unlimited metrocards. when you live in NYC you tend to use the metrocards a lot. unless you drive everywhere. during the summer if you see that theres not a lot of people in that one car more than likely that car’s AC broke so go to the next one quickly! it could also be that theres a bum there that stinks.

all in all just be prepared to move a fast pace. stay to the right on the sidewalks (and streets if you drive). and enjoy your life in the city =D

it’s an essay of who’s responsible for obesity in america… need help concluding

America, Home of the Fat
America, home of the free right? Wrong. America is one of the fattest nations in the world. We would think that one of the most productive and developed countries would be the healthiest. The truth however, is we are not. The question that is presented then, is who’s to blame? People always find it easier to point a finger and blame someone else. Americans are suing fast-food companies for “making them fat”, and such lawsuits are becoming more prevalent each day. Blaming the fast-food industry for obesity is like an alcoholic suing an alcohol company for giving them cirrhosis of the liver. Caesar Barber of Bronx, New York “filed a lawsuit Wednesday in Bronx Supreme Court, naming McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken” (<www.usatoday>) because he didn’t it was unhealthy. What has happened, to self control and personal responsibility? The individual and the parents are the ones to blame for American’s obesity.

It is a parent’s responsibility to care for their child and therefore they are also responsible for their health and what they consume. A parent would not let their child do drugs, so why do they allow them to overindulge on soft drinks and unhealthy food if they both harm your health. In The Battle Against Fast Food Begins At Home Daniel Weintraub states, “It is a parents – not the government, not the fast-food companies, not the video-game manufacturers – who are responsible for teaching kids healthy eating and exercising habits” (Weintraub42). Parents much teach children how to how to exercise and get involved in physical activities. If they fail to do so they are setting their children on a path of lifetime health problems. Many parents allow and approve their child’s sedentary behavior without thinking about the consequences. Eating junk food and playing video games everyday is not benefiting them in any way, and who is responsible to get them off the couch and shooting hoops? McDonalds, Burger King, Carl’s Jr, Jack in The Box? No, of course not. It is parent’s duty as the one who cares for the child. Some people may think companies lure kids into buying food with cartoons, truth is parents need to teach children how to look out for these marketing strategies companies use because that is something they will need to know when it comes to important choices in life, like choosing auto insurance, credit companies and so forth. If children obesity

An adult individual unlike a child can make independent decisions but Americans often make the wrong decisions when it comes to managing their diets. A trip to the market could save you money an unneeded calorie intake. You can cook your own meals and know what you’re eating and manage your caloric intake but Americans simply have become addicted to fast- food, and it is their lack of discipline that has made them so obese. Sue Widemark conveys in her article Reason for Obesity, that an attitude Americans seem to have is that of “Eating is some kind of pastime…and if we feel that we are denied a bit of this fatty and very unhealthy food which we crave, that we have no quality of life” (Widemark1). Folks simply do not know when enough is enough. In Obesity Epidemic: Overeating is to Blame Mark Fergusson explains “To return to the average weights of the 1970’s we would need to reverse the increased food intake about… 500 calories a day for adults.” An individual has nothing to blame but their carelessness of what they eat and their deficiency of self-control when it comes to how much they eat. Fast-food would not make anyone obese if it was eaten in moderation. Everyone knows that too much of anything is bad. David Zinczenko in his article Don’t Blame The Eater argues that when it comes to food “Advertisements Don’t carry warning labels the way tobacco ads do” but when do Americans plan on becoming responsible for looking for this information? Certainly people who follow healthy lifestyles would ask for calorie information about what they are going to consume and the rest must learn to do the same. Over-eating is definitely a main factor of American obesity. Now, combine A lifestyle of daily fast-food and inactive behavior and you are well on your way to becoming obese.

A person, who is not willing to stay active and yet, constantly eats fast food, cannot expect to be thin. Your body needs exercise not only to look good on the outside but to be healthy on the inside as well. No one neglect their body in a way that would damage their health, but that is exactly what they do when they gorge on greasy fries and soft drinks and do not exercise. Michael Lemonick in his article “How We Grew So Big” writes that “Fully two-thirds of US adults are officially overweight and half of those have graduated to full blown obesity” he

Thank you for your article. I was not knowing it earlier
