Cooking Is Not Hard

Posted by mikenopolis on April 30, 2010

I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember. And when I say cook I don’t mean instant noodles or make a sandwich. I mean really putting in fresh ingredients, spices, pots, pans, stove, oven and grill, etc. Part of the reason I’ve cooked for so much of my life is because both my patents are handicapped so I did a lot of the thing around the house to help out. I am who I am today because of all the things I had to do for them as a child.

A few of my friends saw a recent video I posted up on YouTube of me making wontons (basically Chinese raviolis). I made the video because someone had one and wanted me to teach them how it was done. Many were not only surprised that I cooked, but that I cooked authentic Chinese dishes. Really it’s not that hard. One simple search on Google and you’ll be making great dishes in no time!

For those of you who don’t cook or are “afraid” to cook. You need to learn it. Not only because it’s a good skill to have. But because depending on someone else is never a good idea. And eating out everyday is not only expensive but also extremely unhealthy.

Recipes are to be followed but there’s usually no need to be perfect (unless you are baking a cake, then it is crucial). Make something a few time and before you know it you’ll just be addind a “pinch” of this and a “dash” of that.

Most important things. Make sure you always cook pork and chicken thrououghly. Have good clean up habits. And always taste test before you serve others!
