If you’ve read here long, you know by now that I am not known for my cooking skills. I do it out of necessity (it’s one of the best ways to stay within your budget) and because I know it’s healthier for us, but I am not a natural in the kitchen.
I rarely helped my mom with meal prep when I was growing up, so my skills were pretty pitiful when I got married and moved out. I could at least boil water, but it was still pretty bad. (Mom, I don’t blame you in the least! It’s my own fault for not taking initiative.)
Even though I still have a long way to go, I’ve made some progress in the past 11 years (it’s crazy to think I’ve been married and out on my own for that long) and I can slowly see some confidence building in the kitchen. Thank you, internet!
With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to post my top 5 basic kitchen skills with my favorite how-to posts. You can follow my Cooking 101 Pinterest board for all my basic cooking skill finds because I need all the help I can get!
