Culinary skills encouraged

Dear Editor:

Although I believe responsibility holds the key to success, I find difficulty in independence in the kitchen. Students state their culinary skills or lack of skill in Kristina Palmerís Oct. 4 article, ìTeens plate independenceî.

For a lack of creativity and a consuming laziness, cooking dinner no longer appeases me. I would rather drive to pick up my food than slave in the kitchen to make it. In the article, Palmer lists a few simple foods, making the idea of an independent dinner not as inconceivable.

While the stove was still a foreign object, I attempted to make Top Ramen for the first time. In my naivity, I placed my hand on each burner to determine which one I had turned on. Needless to say, I burned my hand.

While some prove themselves as skilled chefs, Palmer notes their occasional mistakes. As one who often messes up while cooking, knowing that experienced cooks make errors as well provides me with encouragement.

In the future I hope to perfect my culinary skills, all the while continuing to learn new recipes. This ultimately leads to independence in the kitchen, aiding me as a teen.
