What new and fairly easy recipes can I teach my daughter, she’s 18?

She is at the age of “going to move out soon” and doesn’t know how to cook alot.

She knows how to make spaghetti (better than I do and I TAUGHT HER!!..LOL), and she can make macaroni, cook hamburger, and pork chops, Open cans and make ramen.

Any easy recipes out there would be appreciated.

BTW..I am making her a recipe box of MOMS RECIPES she loves to have as a helpful guide.

    Buy her a good kitchen guide , (not a cookbook) that explains foods, types, measuring, substitutions, helpful hints, and fix-its.
    This type of book helped my son alot as he learned how to cook. I still use mine.

    I’m 19 and I love to look up easy recipes. My favorite is stir-fry. It’s simple and all you have to do is throw your favorite ingredients into a skillet with a little oil. You can add seasoning to your taste and whatever veggies or meat you like. It’s quick and great with minute rice.

    one of my favorite and EASY ways to cook chicken is to take chicken breasts, dip them in eggs, and then ITALIAN bread crumbs and fry them in hot veg. oil in a skillet.
    If she doesnt have eggs on hand, she can use mayo.
    This can also be done with boneless pork chops…
    using a mallet on the chops first would be a good idea to make them thinner before frying them.
    mmmmmmm so simple! but yummy!

    Teach her how to improvise and how to use left-overs. That are probably the two most important skills for somebody moving out and living on limited budget.

    My favorite for using left-overs is old fashioned German fried potatoes: Take the left-over boiled potatoes form last day, cut into slices and fry in oil/butter/ left-over fat from yesterday’s pork chops (gives a good excuse not to do all the dishes :-)). Make sure the fat is hot before adding the potato slices, otherwise they just soak up the fat and get greasy but not crisp. When one site of the potatoes gets browned, turn them, cut up an onion and mix it in (this would also be a good time to add some chopped left-over meat or ham-slices, if you have some). By the time the onions are browned the fried potatoes are ready. – Add some salt. Fried potatoes go well with almost everything as a side-dish, but they are fine as a main dish, too.

    here is one of my simple favorites:
    serves 4

    4 medium potatoes sliced thin
    1 small onion chopped
    1lb polish sausage or kielbasa
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    margarine

    fry potatoes and onions in margarine on high heat until soft ( about 20 minutes) turn the potoes often so they don’t burn
    slice sausage and throw in pan with potatoes add a couple tablespoons of water and cover pan reduce heat to medium
    When the sausage appears to have softened ( usually about 10 min) sprinkle cheese all over pan and replace lid turn heat to low and serve when cheese is melted.
    Season with salt and pepper
    This is great served with cornbread and fresh tomatoes

    Cornbread – Jiffy Mix has a corn muffin mix that is really easy to use for the inexperienced cook or those that are pressed for time.

    A tuna pasta bake type dish would be good, because it’s really easy easy to cook and reasonably healthy – You can pack it full of brocolli and other healthy veg, tuna is a good oily fish and if you use say a mushroom soup it’s quite low in fat. The only unhealthy bit would be the cheese and breadcrumbs on top but in moderation should be fine!

    Risotto is really nice and although it’s a bit tricky to start with, once you get the hang of it, it’s really rewarding and you can alternate the ingredients to make quite a few different flavours.

    Stews or soups are also really easy. Make sure that when your daughter moves out she gets a slow cooker.
    Basically you can just chuck all your ingredients in there with some flavouring (depending on your preference, personally I love Bay, thyme and basil) a load of stock and then just leave it.
    Although if you’re putting meat in there I would recommend browning it in a pan first (you can use packet type ham or chicken straight from the pack if you have no time)
    I use different veg depending on my mood but you can really do it with most things, potatoes, celery, carrots, onions, pepper, yams, swede, leek – anything really!

    What a cool idea!

    I like to cut boneless skinless chicken breast(s), cook lightly on both sides at med-high heat and then turn heat down and cover with a can of broccoli cheddar soup. Cook it on low about 20 minutes and it’s done. I usually put it over some minute rice.

    Also, another easy recipe is chili dog casserole (if she has an oven) and that’s just: pour part of a can of chili on the bottom of a baking dish, wrap a hot dog in a flour tortilla (however many she wants to make) pour the rest of the chili on top, cover with cheese and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

    I have a lot of easy recipes actually, I work full time and my husband is gone a lot so easy is about all I do. You can email me if you would like some more. 🙂
