Tip No. 1

01. Follow A Recipe

Seriously, follow a recipe! Especially, when you are learning the basics. Recipes are there to guide you so that you learn to enjoy cooking and make food that actually tastes good!

Tip No. 2

02. Buy The Necessary Tools

Even if you buy the cheapest kitchen tools out there, make sure you get the necessities. Things like a ladle, spatula, whisk, grater, hand mixer, etc. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars, but take it from me you need the tools. It will make life easier and make cooking fun! I am just now getting a mixer and let me tell you I am so thankful!

Tip No. 3

03. Buy the Herbs

One thing I have learned after a lot of trial and error is that you need to buy ALL the herbs in the recipe. And the fresher the herb the better. It makes a huge difference on the taste. It’s expensive to buy the good herbs for each recipe but it does make a huge difference. So don’t skimp on the herbs!
