  • baked chicken, super simple.. spaghetti, meatloaf, baked pork chops, stir fry. I name those only because when I was a jr in highschool I had to take over the cooking because my mom wouldnt, couldnt whatever her excuse was, and those were the basics that I made often cause I knew how. Now I know alot more, but those were the basics I stuck to

  • meatload, spaghetti, lasagna, pasta salad, lentil soup... oh the list could go on and on for me. i guess it just depends on the woman and her perspective on cooking. to me, pretty much any meal is "easy" to prepare. not trying to sound stuck up at all, i'm just saying cooking comes more naturally to some people than others and there is nothing wrong with that.

  • They should be able to brown any kind of meat. Whether ground or otherwise. It's super simple as long as you just watch it and keep it on the proper temprature.

    Grilled Cheese. It's too simple and it takes mere minutes to make.

    Those are the two that I can think of.

  • Lets not forget to teacher our sons as well as our daughters to cook some basic dishes. I wont raise a helpless man! - LOL (His future wife will thank you) Spaghetti, stroganoff, caseroles, are all pretty easy. Anyone who can read can follow a simple recipe tho, so dont be afraid to try new ideas.

  • EVERY woman & man should be able to make (at least) a few nutritious, tasty meals. mrsmom110 makes an excellent point, we have to get our daughters and sons in the kitchen.   :-)
