First step to write procedural writing!

People write for a range of purpose and procedural writing is a way to help people make or create something. This could be a recipe!

Before writing, we were given the opportunity to explore different types of procedural writing.
We figured that it is very important to have a title, subtitles for ingredients/equipments, and method in a procedural writing.
