If there is one positive thing that came from the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s reigniting peoples love for cooking.

During lockdowns that were implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19 globally, people took to their kitchens to experiment with recipes as most restaurants were closed.

Things have somewhat gone back to normal (finally) but some people might still need the inspiration to make their own food. As much as a drag cooking might be, it does save money and it makes you feel good when you are able to make your own food from scratch.
