Accessibility Tips:

  1. Set a timer so you don’t burn your food!
  2. Put a note next to the stove so you remember to turn it off once you’re done!
  3. If you can’t stand for long, bring a chair into the kitchen to sit on while you chop the ingredients
  4. Take out all your ingredients before you start to make sure you have everything you need
