  • ummmm. well everything is pretty easy ebcause its all about following instructions if you use recipes. My advice would be to start out of buying a book that has cooking terms and its definitions. So you're not reading recipes going "what does that mean" you can look it up. Then i would go with that first recommended site, i find excellent recipes off of it all the time! Just start out with recipes that have not so many ingredients if that scares you. Good luck!

  • Go to the library and check out a couple of kids cookbooks. No, I am not kidding; they have simple, easy to follow recipes. My favorite is Pretend Soup.

    Once you have mastered the basics, go back to the library and start checking a few out.
