My mother always tried to get me to cook, she was a wonderful cook, but I was not interested. ( I was a teenager) I remember coming home from school and she had a pot of vegetable soup cooking on the stove and homemade bread coming out of the oven. It smelled delicious and was!
I remember going to my grandma’s house as a child and everything she cooked was delicious. She cooked at the schools for many years, I never thought when I was out of high school and married that is what I would pursue.
My life career has been cooking for my family, cooking at schools, retirement centers, and my last job was at a Alzheimers Facility for 13 years. That was my favorite job.
I was the head cook at one of the schools I cooked at. I use to make homemade croutons once a week, this delicious smell went through the school and I had all the teachers lining up to get some.
When it comes to cooking, it is important to keep in mind that everyone started somewhere. I do not know of a single person who was born with a wooden cooking spoon and ready to go.
I have learned so much through the years let me share some tips that help when you are cooking.
You always want your food to taste delicious so taste and season as you go.
This is a must! Clean your wooden cutting boards….Cut a lemon in half and dip the cut side with coarse salt. Use it to scrub your cutting board clean, then rinse.
Do you have a recipe that calls for buttermilk but don’t have any? You can make your own by putting a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice into regular milk.
Keep notes on recipes that you try…..Soup could have used more tomato? Chicken needed ten more minutes in the oven?
Burgers on the grill are delicious, but you have to take steps to keep them juicy. To keep them moist, put an ice cube in the middle of the meat before tossing it on the heat.
Instead of Chocolate chips add a chocolate bar. Chopping your own chips creates pockets of melty chocolate throughout your cookies—delicious!
Make sure you have white vinegar in your kitchen……works great if you burn yourself.
Try these Homemade Spice Mixes From Real Simple Good…..You will never go back to store bought again. Recipes included for all.
