Cooking Education

I believe that everyone can learn to cook. There was definitely a time when I was a newbie in the kitchen and did things like putting a pre-prepped casserole straight from the fridge to the oven. Let’s not discuss how long that took to cook… I would much rather people say things like, “I don’t want to learn to cook” or “I don’t want to spend my time in the kitchen” than things like “Cooking is too hard” or “I can’t cook.” Sure, it takes time and a willingness to figure things out, but it is possible to learn to cook. Here are a list of websites/articles that have great pieces of information. Reading through these is what helps me be a better cook. Oh and watching a LOT of Food Network.
