How to Cook

If you're looking to become a better cook, you've hit the jackpot with our extensive guide on how to cook. In our decades of cooking in the Better Homes and Gardens® Test Kitchen, we've learned a thing or two -- and we're happy to share our tips on how to cook like a pro. We have cooking charts, essential for times and temperatures you need to know to cook meat, poultry, and vegetables to perfection. There are tips for testing doneness, too, in case you lose track of time. All cooking pros know how to improvise; if you run out of an ingredient in the middle of cooking, you can still pull off a delicious dish with help from our substitutions and equivalents guide. Adjusting recipes is especially important in high-altitude cooking, which often involves different recipe requirements -- we've got a guide for that, too. We also have fantastic how-to videos that allow you to see skills in action. Watch to learn how to master all kinds of kitchen skills, from basic to complex.
