How to cook independently
I’ve always been a baker; Brownies, Cookies, Cake…you name it, I loved to cook it. Unfortunately once you move out you can’t, or shouldn’t, live off of this. So in preparation for going to University I combined some of my favourite recipes with some homemade recipes and started to learn.
Everything I’ve included below is super easy and doesn’t take up more than half an hour out of a busy day. So, let’s begin! You will all be chefs in no time.
Starters (Or Quick Fixes)
Leek & Potato Soup
Glasgow Caesar Salad
Turkey Mince Stir Fry
Sweet and Sour (Mix with any meat/vegetable desired)
To become lasagna, make cheese sauce
Chicken and leek carbonara
Cheat’s Chicken Rissotto
Chicken Stir Fry (Alternate meat or eliminate for Veg. Stir Fry)
Tomato Sauce (Can be added to many dishes)
Tuna Pasta Bake
Mac & Cheese
Finally, here are some top tips:
-Don’t be afraid to experiment
-Ask for help
-Research, research, research
-Always be cautious and careful of expiry dates, allergy information and anything you could hurt yourself on.
-It’ll take practice and that’s okay - don’t get disheartened if you burn your first baked potato, we’ve all been there.
-Cooking together can make it more fun. Design a rota for you and your flatmates and make it enjoyable.
