Stick To The Cheeks

Solve the two riddles. The answers should be anagrams of each other.

(Thing 1)
You use me when you want to cook
For friends or family.
But, whether written down or not,
It's best you stick to me.

(Thing 2)
I like to think that I'm a skill,
Not just some old technique.
People do me to their ears,
Or nose, or tongue, or cheek.
