7 Secrets on How to Have Fun While Cooking

Our mood affects the meals that we prepare in the kitchen. While some are aching to give it their all in the kitchen, others need more than just a nudge. Cooking is a skill that we need to learn in order to survive. And if we continually stuff ourselves with salt-drenched fast foods, then we’re in for major health trouble. Cooking at home is inexpensive and healthier than eating out. And if preparing meals is something that you dread doing, here are few secrets and tips on how to make the kitchen your favorite place at home.

1. Cook with good company- It’s always fun to cook with family and good friends. Cooking is also a time to talk, socialize and catch up on each other. You can also share recipes and tips for an improved cooking experience. Cooking with lots of laughter and good conversation around you, never fail to lighten up anyone’s mood. Or how about do it with a loved one, like your kids, cooking with your kids will make the experience a lot happier.

2. Go with simple food recipes- Leave the multi-course meals to special events. With ordinary days you can do well with simple, laid-back and economical meals that don’t take long to cook. Reserve fancy meals to occasions that need elaborate cooking. Day to day dishes need not be upscale; it would only stress you out.

3. Live out a positive point of view- A positive outlook always does the trick. Think of this endeavor lightly, like when you're playing cooking games. It also helps to envision yourself as a flourishing cook. Look at cooking not as a menial task but rather as an opportunity for learning and creativity. If you’re unenthusiastic about cooking, it will reflect on the dishes that you’ve prepared. So be optimistic and feel good about cooking.

4. Relax while you cook- Learn to forget whatever it is that you’re stressing about. Relax, take a deep breath and leave your worries before you start cooking. Listening to music also helps ease the stress.

5. Relish the aroma of the different ingredients. Cooking is aromatic. Take a whiff of spices, fruits and vegetables laid on the table. It’s really good for the senses.

6. Take pictures. Taking pictures of your dish encourages you to improve your food presentation. It’s fun unleashing your creativity and keeping memories of your fun cooking memories.

7. Concoct your own signature recipe- Cooking experiments are fun and challenging. You can always perfect your dish through dozens of trial and errors.

An innate love for cooking starts in you. So ditch your worries and learn to defy your cooking fears.
