AskReddit (How to Cook)
This time of the year — more so than much of the rest — can inspire folks of all culinary backgrounds to either skillfully or perhaps bullishly, naively try their hands at cooking various dishes for family and friends.

Fortunately, a recent AskReddit thread has provided us with a solid and quick yet highly effective list of invaluable cooking secrets.
