Following a recipe is a good way to learn to cook.

How to Read a Recipe

"Recipes look too confusing to follow."

  • Always read through a recipe completely and make sure you have all ingredients on-hand before starting to prepare and cook.

  • Serving size tells you how many people the recipe will serve, or for baked goods like cookies, how many dozen the recipe should make.

  • Become familiar with measurements, like tablespoons and cups, to better understand the ingredients list.

  • Directions are sometimes included within the list of ingredients. For example "1 onion, chopped" would mean you would need to chop the onion before adding it to the recipe.
