well we are 3 brothers, so when i was like 13 (younger 10 and older 16) she came to us and said that she was gonna teach us how to clean, cook, do the laundry and all the house shore, she said that we had to learn how to live by oursleves and stuff.
When we tried the learn cooking the best thing i found was getting me one of those books that contain like 1000 recipes, just pick 1 up that you may like and try to make it, if it doent go right, keep trying, you will get the hang of it and it will actually help you when trying to make other dishes, the first tries where hilarious.

I am learning to cook too. (lol) And uhm when I watch dramas sometimes I think "oh I want to cook" then if I know what I want to cook I just google it in the net and find a simple recipe and try it.

Three days ago I made my first pie and it was yum yums. Mashed potato (properly made ¬.¬) ith baked beans mixed in it. <- filling

Fajita,
Egg Noodle in chicken soup
Udon noodles in light chicken soup with lightly fried chicken strips in apple juice (YUMMMMMMMMMMM) My own amateur creation. It is busy though for a soup has cabbage, mushroom, chickpeas spring onions

cooking is easy..... just get a cook book and follow the instructions....if you dont want to do that, have someone teach you, like when they are about to cook tell them that you want to do it but they need to show you how.

cooking is easy. dont stress over it. get yourself a rice cooker and read the instruction. Basic stuff is, learn how to cook yourself some eggs first. Start off simple, learn how to fry things until it is fully cooked. Experiment, learn how to add different things in a pan as you fry it. Use only a little salt at first, no need to pour in a lot. Taste test, if it needs salt, add salt. Work with dishes that does not need any other ingredients except salt and black pepper. Once you can fully cook like that, then, slowly advance yourself, into adding more ingredients. Once, you start doing so, don't be afraid of taste testing it as well. Then when you are done learning how to fry up everything and add different ingredients, sauces etc., start on the boiling and or making of soup. That will be a breeze as well. Good Luck!
