Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Labeling Foods

kitchen quick tips

Don't use labels!  Use a Sharpie or old fashioned grease pencil to label food packages for the freezer, canning jars or other food storage containers.  A Sharpie can be cleaned off using rubbing alcohol or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser while a grease pencil will wipe off with a little rubbing.
