Jeanie, Welcome! One thing that a lot of people do here is post what they made recently, and then other people say "Hey! Do you have a recipe for that?" if it sounds good (or interesting). I do that with cookbooks, too. Just reading them, like Karen was saying. I get an idea from it or mix a few recipes. It's good to start out cooking according to the recipe, I think, till you get a feel for cooking, if you're a complete novice. But the big fun is experimenting, lol. Check out the threads on what people are cookin/eating.

I love to collect cookbooks, I enjoy sitting down and reading them too. But when it comes to fixing a meal I never go grab a cookbook and follow their recipe.
I am a experimental cook, if it sounds good together then I put it together.
For instance I had some kidney beans cooking, and cooked up some brown rice, so I mixed it all together and added a little hamburger with TVP, some Chipotle sauce and called it dinner. Friends and DH loved it with a salad on the side. I cook with grains a lot and mix in veggies, and a little meat. I eat things now I never thought I would, like bulgar, turnips, kale, lentil and cous cous. Tofu and TVP has become my staples. I have fun with foods now.
