Learn to Cook

Angelina Ruiz, Writer

I have a recommendation for you: cook. Even if you’re not good at it, give it a try. You’re going to have to know how to do it someday if you don’t already, right? If you’re going to be home alone even if it’s just three hours, you might get hungry, so you’re going to wish you knew how to make great food. You’re probably thinking right now, “I’d just eat snacks if I was home alone.” Seriously? You should learn how to cook.


It’s not just something you can enjoy; other people can too if you cook something they enjoy eating. Fixing food builds relationships with others, and it should be appreciated that you made a meal even if it didn’t turn out good because at least you tried (hopefully). If you decide to cook with others, it helps bring up your social and communication skills. They can help you, and you could learn from them. It’s a greatly important and independent life skill to have, it could help with so many things without you even realizing it.


Cooking is educational as well, it requires following instructions, reading recipes, which also leads to math and a lot more learning skills. It’s great for children, just simple easy recipes. Making food can help kids with a reading by them being interested in what the next step is to build a delicious meal. Also, youngsters who love math would probably be entertained in what some of the directions are. Needing to know how to measure, weigh, the temperature and time number, along with much other math involving.


Anyways, you’re going to need to know how to do it for most of your life if not the rest (if you’re able). Even if you already know how to cook, trying new baking/cooking recipes and learning new ones can improve many of your skills in different ways. It’s great to learn a new recipe that way you have something new to make. Or even teach your younger people, they might love it. Try a new life learning experience.
