How to Get You Started Cooking

Article by Harvey J. Sharp

While cooking is life skill (face it, we all have to eat), many people are unable to cook for themselves and resort to buying food from restaurants and eateries. This is problematic for two reasons, the first reason is that eating out is expensive and will eventually begin to eat (pardon the pun) into your monthly bills. For some people this is not big deal, however if you are paying rent or a mortgage, then you probably should be looking for ways to save money. The second reason why is it not such a good idea to eat out regularly is that most restaurant food is unhealthy and high in calories, sodium and fats. Overtime this will lead to increase weight gains and generally health problems, such as diabetes. Of course, this all depends on the restaurants you choose, however in most cases, if you don’t know how to cook a home cooked meal (canned foods, lean cuisines and Kraft dinner don’t count), then its probably safe to say that you could probably use a few tips to get you started.

Tip #1 – Start SmallChoose a recipe that is manageable for your skill set. While its good to be ambitious sometimes, you want to familiarize yourself with the cooking routine. The goal here is to build-up your cooking confidence so that you can cook more elaborate meals in the future.

Tip #2 – Read the RecipeYes, I know, it sounds ridiculous, but you’d be surprised how many people neglect reading the full instructions when making a meal. Its best to read the recipe over first and then collect the ingredients. Keep the instructions close by to make them easy to refer too.

Tip #3 – PracticeIf you are making food for someone special, don’t leave it to the big night before you try the recipe out for the first time. Select another night with less pressure and this will give you time to perfect the food. Most chefs don’t nail the recipe the first time, they practice and add their touches too it. You need to do the same.

So here are some recipes to get you started. Both are fairly easy to follow and should be flavorful at the end.

Le 17 mars 2011, Vers 19h30 (heure de Bruxelles), Mouammar Kadhafi s’est adressé aux habitants de la ville de Benghazi et à la communauté internationale en direct de la radio libyenne. Voici la traduction en direct grâce aux modérateurs de Livestream.com/libya17feb. A l’heure où la communauté internationale vote la résolution pour une zone de restriction aérienne sur la Libye, Kadhafi lance un ultimatum aux insurgés de Benghazi : Kadhafi : ” We are determined to stop this disgrace that happening now. You are happy that Qatar is doing this thing to you. They are making you baggers. Seriously the dogs, the sons of dogs put us in this state. We thought they were going to repent to get their minds back. (…) A couple of Muppets coming from Afghanistan and Egypt and Tunisia coming here to destroy your country to destroy Benghazi the loved city Benghazi, with its hotels and beautiful parks and its “korneesh”. They want to sell our pride and our history and the people are out of prisons and the junkies are outside! This joke will be finished, we are nearing the end ! (…) We will turn off the oil and water and we will hand ourselves over to them chained ! Disgrace, disgrace Anyone who drops his weapon, i will pardon him on my name throw away your weapon my son u and your family throw ! and go and sit home, we are going to search house by house and anyone who has one will be seen as an enemy, defend against who (…) throw away ur weapons and run away.
