Don't Be Afraid, It's Just Food

It's just food, a stove, and maybe a couple of other cooking essentials. Television chefs and amazing cooks in your own family can make the process of cooking look intimidating to the novice, at-home cook. Or like many younger people they have never been taught or even allowed into the kitchen while growing up.
