In our grandparent’s time, cooking from scratch was the norm. People the didn’t have aisles and aisles of frozen, ready to eat meals, nor the extensive selection of deli items we enjoy today. As more and more women entered the workforce, with full time jobs, families began to rely on the ready to eat and take out options in order to put food on the table quickly. Busy schedules don’t allow for lengthy preparations of food, as was the case in the past.
As a result, cooking has become somewhat of a lost art in the American kitchen. Now, we find that, with food costs jumping substantially, it’s time to start cooking more meals at home. If you feel the need for some instruction in basic cooking skills, you ought to look into the Cooking for Dummies series to get you up to speed in a hurry.
Don’t let the title names put you off. These cook books offer far more than how to make a tuna sandwich or fry an egg. Also, there are several titles available, emphasizing techniques, special dietary requirements as well as particular cuisines. Do you love Mexican food? Try the Mexican Cooking for Dummies book, which goes into the ingredients, seasonings and preparation techniques you’ll need to produce most of the dishes you’ll find in your favorite Mexican restaurant or supermarket freezer section.
If Chinese food is your thing, look for the Chinese Cooking for Dummies title to get you started. If you require low fat recipes, the ‘for Dummies’ series can fill the bill. There’s even a book devoted to cast iron cooking, providing an array of versatile and easy recipes requiring nothing more than a couple of cast iron pans, such as a frying pan and a Dutch oven to cook your way to successful and delicious entrees. Another interesting title in the Cooking for dummies series is designed for the grown up beginner cook who wants to teach their kids the cooking basics. The step by step procedures allow you to learn right along with the kids!
The original title in the series is the plain Cooking for Dummies. These easy cooking recipes offer everything you need for all around menus, from how to cook chicken to broiling steak. While you may think this is overly simplistic, you’ll be surprised to learn that there are indeed little tricks that can greatly affect the final results. For example, did you know that you can get a juicy and tender fried chicken in half the time, by partially cooking your chicken pieces in the microwave and then finishing it in the frying pan? This works well because you’re assured that the inside of the meat is cooked, without burning the outside. This method also allows much of the fat to run off before it gets to the frying pan. These books make it easy to learn to cook. You don’t need to know a thing about cooking. All you need is one of the Cooking for Dummies books. Save a lot of money at the grocery and have fun!
