Cooking is a lot of trial and error....and mostly error. Just stick with it. Find recipes that sound good, and try them. You will learn from experience what works. That's how I did it, and now I am able to do stove top cooking, as well as oven, wok, charcoal grill, and crock pot. Not everything has turned out well, but I've improved a lot. You can too, as long as you realize that it takes some experience to get it right, and that it's ok if something doesn't turn out perfect.
Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.
