of course cooking is important. to me, it is a skill in life. lol out of all my cousins, i'm the best "chef."
my parents always used to tell me to learn how to cook because one day i'll have to cook for my own family. lol all they ever thought about was how i'll need it after marriage. but i always did watch. i mean.. you don't have to cook things you don't like to cook.
i started off by cooking my boxed items.. lol kraft mac & cheese. i started off by learned how to use the stove top.. oven.. toaster.. etc.
and then from their i started challenging myself.. cooking home made foods. i even bought cook books.
then.. i took the challenge to cook indian food. lol i'm not a big fan of indian food. i'm waay to picky. soo i only make things i eat.
i even make roti. lol i can never make an exact 360 degree roti like my mom haha.. but atleast it tastes good and all.
i guess you should start off like that.
you can't expect to have your parents cook in the future.. unless your hubby happens to be a chef. and you really can't expect to eat fast foods and restaruant foods forever.
soo try little steps at a time.
it might be cause cooking is my hobbie.. but try.
