A lot of us have resolved to cook more often for a number of good reasons—to save money, to take control of our health, to spend more time with family and so on. But the hardest part of fulfilling that intent is to settle down to the actual cooking. It’s easy to fill a Pinterest board with recipes and pretty images of food, but actually pulling out pots and getting busy in the kitchen is another matter.
Don’t wait anymore. Just dive in and start cooking, even if you don’t have the kind of equipment you see on the cooking shows or the special ingredients that are called for in a particular recipe. Work with what you have; the results might not always be Instagram-worthy, but it’ll be better than anything handed to you from a drive-thru window.
