How about prepping and cooking together with a friend?

Sometimes, my friends and I may buy the ingredients together on the same day we cook it. Or my friend would buy the ingredients, I would read aloud the ingredients we need and the preparation instructions and we may either do different parts or practice the same thing. After that, I would try it on my own at home and get the hang of it after a few tries.

If I know how to make something like pizza, I would prepare all the ingredients and place them in a way my friend can decorate the pizza.

We usually choose simple things to start with.

I learned how to be more organized after doing things with other people especially giving clear instructions or receiving them, eg my friend will remind me to do something first before moving on to the next one. I needed more prompts initially before I can do something well on my own.
