Do you love to cook? My friends think I love to cook every day and that I’m always making amazing and complicated meals. Not true! I’m just like everyone else who loves to cook, but maybe not every day. My friend Lucy reminded me that not everyone likes to cook…ever.
Whoa! Take a pause. Not like to cook ever? I feel a little sad for those folks and want to rush into their kitchens and give them a hug…and then cook together. But it’s true, there are some people who don’t like to cook. They think it is messy with dishes and pans to clean and takes too much time and effort. They are right… cooking can get messy and takes planning and effort. I just think anything worth having is worth effort. We all have to eat, right?
I also think there are a lot of people who haven’t had the chance to learn to love cooking. So I wanted to give some tips to help inexperienced cooks further develop their comfort and expertise in the kitchen.
