Cooking...skill of cooking is a skill I believe everyone should master. If not professionally then at least rookie level. Its a skill that might save you some money and health. I will present you dishes that I make on regular bases at home and/or with my friends. Most of them are simple to make. I would like to address a caution that time for making dishes can be a bit different in your country/place due to different products, but in general it should be close to mine. Also do understand to adjust usage of spices/toppings to your likings/taste, thus add more or add less of something you really want in dish you'r preparing. I'll be using basic cooking utensils, so don't do as my friend did after finding my recipes, when he had a shopping spree in a cooking shop. Most important utensils are: - Cutting board: Its better if its out of wood and at least 1.5cm thick - Chef's knife: ~12inch/25cm long knife. With this knife you'll do ~70-80% of cutting work. - Pairing knife: Small knife for peeling, coring and carving - Pans/Pots: For cooking they are both a necessity. Soups, stakes, veggies, fish or meat they all can be nicely done in them. I mostly use stainless steel pots and ceramic pans. But there are exceptions for some dishes I use different pans. - Measuring cup. Every rookie follows recipes to 90% accurately and before you train your eyes for portions measuring cup will help you. To save space and money, try getting one that has for sugar/rice on 1 side and flour on 2nd side - Tools: I'll just name them, basically you understand or will understand why these are basic - Potato masher, spatula, whisk, ladle, vegetable peeler, wooden spoons, tongs and grater - Oven mitts: I think i don't have to explain why. - Mesh strainer & colander In spoiler are pictures of kitchen utensils. Due to size and length I decided to put them in spoiler.

Oven mitts To help with difficulty of a dish and time spent on preparing i found this helpful icons Difficulty: More weights there are, harder the dish to prepare. Time spent on dish will also be added with clock icons. I believe everyone knows how to read clocks so this are icons for 15,30,45 or 60min.: or for fast 1-10min dishes Last part. -Menu. Due to size and constant changes in it, it will be placed into spoiler. I don't want recipes to move from page to page since menu will also show on which page recipe is. -Recipes will be placed in sub-categories (soups/salads,...) and labled A-Z. On left side I'll add them page number, so that they'll be easier accessible -With time amount of recipes will increase and i'll make more sub-sections (example: from main dishes; chicken/beef/pork/vegetarian/other, fish were already excluded).
