Hey there. 

Even though many of us can assist in technique we can't assist to much in terms of gaining confidence.  My suggestion, take a course through centres like the National Federation of the Blind (NFB), not sure if the American Council of the Blind (ACB) has a similar program.  It's one thing to give technique, but confidence is another. Just a suggestion. Deborah is right though, you can tell when a pot is boiling by the steam coming out of the top. Also, there are products available that will whistle and indicate when the pot is boiling. For more products check out www.blindmicemegamall.com.

Once you get some confidence in cooking, you may find that you don't really need that recipe, or you'll start to make changes to suit your personal tastes.

I recently bought a Crock-pot, but I burned the food. Any advise is greatly appreciated. I have never followed a recipe before, and there is many things I don't know.
