We all have to start somewhere. Whether you are a young person at home with your parents who can teach you, or are a bachelor or bachelorette out on their own for the first time, the art of cooking is more than microwave dinners. First thing to know is you’re not going to need to start with a full course turkey dinner with all the trimmings. You can start with simple step by step recipes of the easier variety. For beginners working with a recipe that’s simple is a good start and as a beginner, you will want to make sure you are following the directions precisely; this isn’t’ the time to experiment or improvise. You will have plenty of chances to be creative as you become more familiarized with cooking.
Two of the easiest recipes is boxed macaroni and cheese; a simple measuring and boiling process for starters. Making ‘rice crispy’ squares is also an easy 5 step process.
Keeping to a few simple recipes like these is a good start, as you become more comfortable with these simple cooking methods, you will be able to branch out from there and eventually discover the cook within.
Cooking isn’t “for” everyone, but, knowing the basics is; for some cooking to be a fun and relaxing time. It may just take a little time and a few burnt dinners until you find their groove but, with persistence and patience you too can learn to cook.
