Back in August, we shared a list of 25 main dish dinners for people who claim they can't cook (though if this is only their

Or if you, friend, are the hesitant one who—after some scarring experience (tasteless potatoes, a burned lasagna or five)—thinks that you cannot cook, let these recipes ease you back into things.
