How To Cook
Getting to know how to cook doesn't have to be hard. When you see people cook it probably looks hard, but it's really not. If you can read and measure, you can easily cook anything that the pros can cook in your own kitchen even.
Like with any kind of craft you want to learn, you need the right tools if you want to cook. Pots, pans, spoons, forks, and everything else need to be high quality and not too expensive at first. You're going to make mistakes, so you don't want a top of the line pan to cook in that's hundreds of dollars. When you do get good at cooking and want to move up to new tools, make sure you know how to care for them and that you know what to shop for since quality does not always mean a high price.
Cooking takes practice, but you may not always want to share your results if they are not good. It can help to work on something that you're good at and then add a little more to it here and there until you transform it into a new meal your family loves. You can also try adding in new sides or cooking on the weekend for yourself to see if you like it. You need to not be too hard on yourself if you mess up and consider the mistakes you made to be learning experience that you won't make again.
The way to learn how to cook is to keep trying. Use the advice you were given here and start cooking regularly if you want to do well at it. Anyone that wants to do something like this is better off just jumping in and trying until they get it right.
