    My dinner dilemma is finding food that fits our busy lifestyle of being out late several nights a week at sport, and that my extremely fussy children will eat. I am sick of pasta, and they are sick of the slow cooker - aaagh I can't win!!!

    My husband is a fussy eater and I'm tired of cooking something only to have him turn his nose up at it! I desperately need some new ideas. Cooking two meals a night is getting OLD.

    My dinner dilemma is cooking for one. I'd like to know how to make nice food quickly so I can stop eating spaghetti on toast for dinner :)

    My dinner dilemma is I should start learning to cook, otherwise I'll never be able to move out on my own and live by myself. No man would want me either [I doubt they want to eat sandwiches for the rest of their lives]!

    im a student so my dinner dilemma would be finding easy and nutritious food that is easy to make and needs little or no preparation. im so sick of take out and cup noodles, can someone find me a muscular firefighter to cook my meals? xD

    I get nervous when I see long recipes with lots of ingredients so I don't cook much. I'd like to do this class. It sounds perfect for me.

    As a recent transplant from the U.S. I'm struggling to adjust to foreign terms such as 'Celsius' and 'milliliters'. I'm loving this country, it's amazing food and my new Australian friends. It's these new Australian friends that I'm 'keen' to impress with my cooking skills. Please assist me in distinguishing between a pavlova and a pastry pie so I can host amazing dinner parties and spread my cooking school skills.

    I agonise over weeknight dinners when my husband's shift work sees me eating alone. While I wander aimlessly around the kitchen trying to think of something fast, simple, healthy and yet appetizing to make (that wont require dirtying a tonne of dishes!) I find myself snacking and grazing and before you know it I realise I've filled my tummy and that my 'healthy' dinner has just consisted of 4-6 various chocolate coated biscuits (that I convince myself I always buy for when my nephew visits... ha!), random pieces of bread smeared heavily with butter and handful after handful of hubby's super sugary breakfast cereal. To make things worse I usually end up hungry 2-3 hours later and wind up munching away on vegemite toast in bed. How sad. I'm tired of it and I want to learn a few 'fast, fresh, simple and tasty' skills that will teach me not to be fearful of whipping up a meal for one. Reclaiming my current carb loving waistline wouldn't hurt either!

    Thanks for the great competition, Helen :)

    Cassie, every American moving to Australia goes through the same thing. My first month here I lived at Southgate in Melbourne and would walk to the Queen Vic market and wander back and forth in front of the butcher shops. All I recognized were t-bone steaks. (we ate a lot of t-bone steak that first month)

    On my third visit to the market I wanted something other than steak so I walked up and down the row of butchers, peering into each meat case and wondering how the heck I'd cook a cut of meat I was unfamiliar with.

    I was stressing. My Aussie sweetheart would be home from work at 6 and I didn't want to serve steak (again).

    As I was staring into the window one of the butchers came out and said, "Darl, you've been looking in every window so long you must need a chair," and handed me a chair.

    That was it. I started to cry ! I didn't know Melbourne butchers were also comedians!

    I walked away and bought something from another butcher and 3 butchers started applauding. I've toughened up since 1996. :)

    I've also learned to cook meat and I can think in celsius - it will just happen.

    Day before payday, One turnip, half a fennel 2 onions, 3 carrots, and couple of potatoes. I cannot think of any reasonable combination, but after 12 months at the Stonesoup Virtual Online Cookery School, I'll be fine.

    I've been cooking a long time but there is one thing I wish I did better. My knife skills are crap. I wish I could use my knives with more skill. I learned cutting by Nigella Lawson - we get the job done but we're not clever.
