I’m working on creating a section of my website that is not solely dedicated to producing recipes. Yes 90% of what I am planning and doing is cultivating easy to make recipes for anyone to cook, even if you’ve never cooked before. But I want to create another section of this blog as well, something that’s fundamental for everyone. How to do the basics!
I was lucky enough to live with and learn from my mom for many years. She has done so much to inspire me along with giving me the knowledge I needed to create delicious meals. But she recently told me that she never learned to cook until she was married to my father! She was not provided with the same knowledge that I received growing up.
Though that hasn’t stopped her from becoming an amazing cook. However, she has mentioned in the past that she typically played it safe in the kitchen. Typically, only working with what’s she’s used before, or using extremely detailed recipes from co-workers and friends. When I’m working on something in the kitchen, she comes in and mentions that I’m braver than her. I love to try new things and just because I’ve never used an ingredient before – doesn’t mean I can learn on the fly!
She made me consider there may be a lot people out there that may have not received any form of basic knowledge when it comes to cooking. So I’m hoping with some of my How to posts, you can find inspiration to make something you’ve never tried before!
