  • If you rarely have done any cooking start small and keep doing it . Eventually buy yourself any gadgets that you need start small,a good peeler,or a good grater. Gadgets make it easier to do and it goes faster, much less like hard work. It can be great fun and accomplishment.Stuffed french toast is an easy start. - by NORASPAT
  • Great point!

    Plus cooking usually means healthier food because you know whether or not the ingredients are fresh and are in control of additives (few unwelcome surprises). You also get to control the sodium to a large extent. Plus it's usually cheaper than take-out or whatever. - by MINKABONET
