Cooking can seem like something that only professionals can do. But if you have some good information and tips of the trade, then even those who burn toast can make a delicious meal. All it takes is the right techniques and a little bit of knowledge to turn you into a chef.
When making your own whipped cream, store the mixing bowl and beaters you plan to use in the fridge for 30 minutes or so before whipping the heavy cream. Your whipped cream will have stiffer peaks and a better overall consistency than starting with warm or room temperature utensils.
To make applying butter to corn on the cob easier and less messy, melt the butter in a bowl or cup and place it on the table with a pastry brush. Your dinner companions can add as much or as little as they like, without the need to pass around a droopy stick of butter.
If you cook using only recipes from your favorite cookbook, try something new. Getting a few new cookbooks of different varieties is the first step towards diversifying the meals you cook.

Always keep a variety of canned goods in your pantry. Canned corn, both creamed and whole kernel, is a particularly tasty dish by itself. So too are green beans.
