What is Cooking Skillups?

Most cooking sites and food blogs tend to favor elaborate recipes that requires a lot of skill, some luck and hard to find ingredients. As a home cook, I know how difficult it can be to find simple meals that you can easily prepare for your family on a daily basis. Because of this we get caught in a rut of making the same meals over and over, or worse relying on frozen and packaged foods to keep our family fed.

The goal of Cooking Skillups is to give us normal home cooks a place to share recipes, ideas and experiences; as well as successes and even failures. So together we can help each other figure out new, cost effective and delicious ways to bring joy to our dinner tables.
