There are plenty. Get a Nigella Lawson book, or even a kids one. The kids' ones are fun

Calumc's guide to cookery, in two steps:

  • Get some food.
  • Make it hot for a while.


Of course this only applies for hot dishes. For cold food, omit step two.

jamie oliver is the best for thrown together food... becuase im the same as you!! i reccommend (SP??!) the sausage and cider casserole:

fry however many sausages you want to eat till theyre brown on the outside, fry up one onion, and peel and core and slice and apple and brown that too.. then when its all sizzling, pour cider over it all, and whack it in a covered dish in the oven for however long you want, till its all cooked (anything up to 5hrs on low heat..gas mark 3..so cider can make sausages soft) and eat with piles of mashed potato (comfort food) and bloody good if you make it in the afternoon and just leave it in... couldnt reccommend strongly enough!! (ive got plenty more recipes if you really want some!)

I think that it is fun to just try throwing together different things that you think will be good. But it's really not that hard to just follow the directions from a general cookbook if it gets into fancy french terms then get another one.

Follow the instructions on the back of the packets of food of how to prepare, some of them have serving suggestions too. Like someone else said, get a childs cookbook. I remember in my childs cookbook i learnt how to make jam tarts and french bread pizzas. Mmm.. cheese! Lots of guides on the internet too. Also get tips from your friends and family. I have embarrasing stories about putting spaghetti on toast before cooking it, i didnt realise it had to be heated.. :eek:

I can and love 2 cook!!!! 1 of my recipes(my own recipe, all my cooking comes from me not a book!!!) Its called chicken & brown gravy!!!

1. Get some chicken parts any kind!! Wings, breast,etc.

2. Clean, and season them with seasoning of ur choice!!

3. Flour the chicken.

4. Heat a pot with a small amount of canola oil(never use extra virgin olive oil!!) Let it get hot.

5. Once hot brown the chicken lightly and take it out!

6. Drain the oil, put the chicken back in the pot!! And put water in the pot just slightly above the meat!!

7. Cut up an onion cover the pot, put it on low and let it simmer!!
Delicous!! Best enjoyed with rice!!! Makes the best brown gravy!! Yum!!
