5 Cooking Tips For Beginners

1. Use Quick Recipes Online

Lots of quick meal recipes are available online on websites such as Fine Cooking and Table Spoon. These recipes come with full instructions. You can even find videos of a variety of recipes on Facebook pages such as Tasty or websites such as the Food Network. Videos make it easier for you to understand and follow the recipe instructions. Simply buying the required ingredients ahead of time and following the instructions will usually lead you to your desired results. Start with simple recipes at first instead of jumping into complicated recipes. No one is expecting you to make Paella Valenciana on your first cooking trial.

2. Use Basic Ingredients

There are some ingredients that can be used in almost any meal and save your meal if you are short on ingredients. Find them below.

  • Salt: Salt is used in almost every meal. It should be used moderately so as not to lead to bloating and/or taste overpowering.
  • Pepper: Pepper, just as with salt, can be used – moderately – with almost any meal to give it better taste.
  • Butter: Butter can be used as a base for all kinds of meat, poultry and seafood to make it juicier. Use non-processed natural butter for a healthier option.
  • Olive Oil: Just as with butter, olive oil can also be used as a healthy base for almost any meat, poultry or seafood-based meat.
  • Garlic: Minced garlic can be used with almost any meal as well. To mince garlic, simply peal off the non-eatable pieces, wash it lightly, cut it into small pieces and then put it in the mincing pot and start mincing it.
  • Rosemary: Rosemary can be used with baked potatoes or any meat, poultry or seafood.

3. Have the Right Equipment

Make sure to have the right equipment before you start cooking a certain recipe. Lots of meals won’t work out if you use substitute equipment during preparation. I once tried to bake potato rolls without yeast and parchment paper and the result was a disaster. The right equipment can save you disappointment and your hard work going to waste.

4. Have Fun!

Finally, have fun! Cooking should not be a stressful and tiresome job. Taste the food that you are cooking, let your loved ones help you, have fun decorating the dinner table, invite friends over and have a bottle of wine. Don’t worry so much if the food didn’t turn out to be the way you wanted. There’s always next time and practice makes perfect.
