I’m Cooking on YouTube!

If you are like me, cooking isn’t second nature…

So in my recipes my goal is to cover everything that I thought you might ask – actually everything that I’ve had to ask at some stage – I aim for easy kids recipes.  I’m building a library of YouTube ‘How To’s – how to bake a potato, how to cook a steak, how to stir-fry vegetables etc. They are really short and I’ve tried to make them entertaining – the first few make me look like a rabbit stuck in headlights but I am getting better!?! You need to cut me some slack!?

To give you an idea, in the YouTube where I show you how to boil potatoes – I’ve covered – do you have to peel them?, what size do you cut them? How much water to put in the pot? does it matter if it is hot or cold? how high do I have the heat?, how long do you cook them for? and how do know when they are cooked? It‘s all common sense really – once you know!

You’ll find the YouTube links on the VIDEOS page  (on the button above ) – I have done quite a few now – tips, recipe and some general ones to try and convince you to have a go at cooking!!??
