There is a simple solution to your problem. Watch your mom cook. That is what I did when I was young. I wasn't doing it to learn, but I just enjoyed watching my mother cook different dishes and I just picked it up. Believe me it helped me in college. I learned to be creative and use anything that was available, especially when there wasn't much food lying around. I got so good at it that all my roommates in college always wanted me to prepare the food. I could do wonders with mac and cheese. It really isn't that complicated to learn and is a great way to spend more time with your mother.

Hi cutepink! Oh..There are various ways to learn how to cook. It is best to start from the basic and set your worries aside on how to be a "good" cook. Try simple recipes that doesn't require lots of ingredients and complicated procedure or steps. You can start searching on the net which one are easy to prepare, browsing some magazines and cook books may also help you to learn and develop your skill in cooking. Actually some of the easy step recipe I know are from the back label of some products. But more importantly you have to enjoy what you are doing. You must have atlest some passion with it. As they say we have to cook with love! Hope I was able to help you! Happy mylotting! :)

The first thing needed to become a good cook is interest. I have learned cooking after deciding to get married. People usually say the best way to get into the heart of a man is through his heart. Now, I am interested in cooking and download different recipes from internet on weekdays. I buy the necessary ingerdiants for the stuff and cook the dishes during weekend. Some came out well and some were a big flop, but that is ok.

Hi cutepink_13 cooking is not that difficult.. In the begining you try to help your mom in cooking by cutting vegetables and all.. Later on try making simple salads by yourself and ask your mom to taste it.. Then try small recipes and finally you will be a good cook.. cooking requires interest to learn so that you can be a good cook soon.. All the best for your cooking..
