There are lots of fun recipes that are great family dishes! I personally like simple pastas and meats like chicken and fish. What kinds of things were you thinking about?

When you say baking do you mean cakes, pies etc... Maybe muffins would be a good place to start if you want to start baking. We have many fantastic muffin recipes that are healthy and delicious. Go to recipes and put muffins in to search and you will get a ton of great recipes. Cookies are also easy to make.

This is true! Muffins are easy and fun to make with friends/family and are also quite easy to make with a health conscious diet in mind. Bran muffins and whole wheat flour based recipes are no harder to produce than a standard muffins and can be spiced up with many kinds of fruits, nuts, spices, juices... Muffins also take to being made with unsaturated fats lik oils and nut flours and/or low cal sugar substitutes like blue agave nectar. Check out Food52, tastspotting, foodgawker and even the website of Food network for lots of recipes then just have fun experimenting once you've got going a bit!
Also, who doesn't like cookies! :)

Hope this helps!

And don't forget the close relative of the muffin - quick breads!
