For years now, I’ve talked about how cooking at home can help you save money. You don’t need to be a gourmet chef, but knowing how to plan and execute healthy meals is an essential skill.
I spent the first ten years of my marriage eating out (expensive AND not healthy!) and we justified it because we were both so busy working. After having three kids, I was committed to learning how to feed my family. It does take work!
Consider taking some cooking classes or at the very least, teaching yourself from some of these best cookbooks for beginners.
These beginner cookbooks are not just for you–get the kids involved with basics like chopping vegetables and cooking breakfast. You’ll love seeing their pride as they work in the kitchen, and it will set them up to be independent and self-sufficient.
Some of these would make great holiday gifts for the tweens and teens in your life! Or consider giving a cookbook to newlyweds as part of a wedding gift.
