After living at home and getting her associate's degree, my daughter (20) will be going away to college in January and for the first time in her life will have to be responsible for her own cooking, cleaning, laundering, etc. (She will be in a house with some other girls). The cleaning and the laundering parts I think she can handle, but she doesn't know a spatula from a colander. The sole item in her culinary repertoire is scrambled eggs. I am not making this up. She has asked me to teach her the basics over the next six weeks, and I was thinking along with the cooking "lessons" of putting together a loose leaf binder with some simple (and simplified) recipes. I tried searching "five ingredients or fewer" in the search box but only got one hit. Do any of you have some easy-peasy recipes with not-too-exotic ingredients available at the local supermarket? Hopefully ones that don't contain cream of mushroom soup, ramen noodles, macaroni and cheese mix? Thanks so much!
