Cooking Tips For Newbies

 How nice it must be to be a child, and have an adult make all of your meals for you. Once you’re in the real world, you’ll have to be in charge of preparing meals for yourself, and that isn’t always a fun experience. And it’s even less fun when you don’t know what you’re doing. It feels like we spend a lot of time learning unnecessary things in school when really the time would have been better spent ensuring we know how to feed ourselves!

But don’t worry if you’re a complete beginner in the kitchen. You’re never too late to learn how to cook up a storm! In this post, we’ll look at some handy tips that’ll put you on the right path.

Make Your Kitchen Appealing

To begin, you’ll want to ensure that you have a good kitchen. Cooking can be a challenge at the best of times, but you’ll be even less inclined to do it if your kitchen is cluttered, dark, and without the basic cooking essentials. So step one will be to create a kitchen that you genuinely enjoy being in. This doesn’t require a complete makeover or anything; even a lick of paint, improving the lighting, and investing in some good cooking equipment are often all that’s needed.

Start Simple

You might have grand ambitions of feeding your friends and extended family, but if you’re new to the world of cooking, then that’ll have to come later. In the early days, just focus on becoming familiar with the process of making food. There are some exceptionally easy dishes that anyone can make with just a few ingredients. This might not feel like you’re doing all that much cooking, but that’s ok — this step is just to get you familiar with being in the kitchen, preparing your own food. 

Make Something Delicious

Once you’re used to being in the kitchen, you’ll want to step things up slightly by making something that’s a little tastier. Once you’ve made a dish that you genuinely love eating, you’ll be hooked on the art of cooking. These dishes don’t even have to be all that complicated — they just need to be delicious! This quick recipe for Korean short ribs, cooked in an instant pot, for instance, is relatively straightforward yet tastes divine. Plus, there’s nothing like getting awesome feedback from your friends and family to encourage you to keep on improving your cooking skills. 

Stay Organized 

If you’re going to learn how to love cooking, then you’ll need to learn how to handle the annoying aspects of cooking. For example, cleaning up. There’s no avoiding the fact that you’ll have dirty pots and pans, and if you let that frustrate you, then it won’t be long before you give up on cooking altogether. One way to get around this is to clean as you go — it’s much easier to clean while waiting for water to boil, rather than waiting until after you’ve finished eating to clean everything. Keeping your kitchen organized will also help.
