Sorry, i didnt really mean that its just that im going to colledge next year and beans on toast is about the exhaustive extent of my culinary skills, im sorry, i know i should have learned by now but that dam tomboy inside wouldnt let me!!

I was just wondering are there any cookbooks with really easy basic food to make for teenagers out there. my eating style would definately lean towards veggie.

please if anyone knows of any or any easy recepies help me coz im on this stupid independance thing with my mom at the moment so cant ask her!! (forgot about food didnt i? doh!)

i live in ireland by the way so they would have to be able to be bought over here.

thanx

Many of my college-attending, apartment-renting colleagues swear by the Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer. Not only does it teach you pretty easy, healthy recipes, but it breaks down the scientific aspects of cooking: why certain temps are needed to bake or cook, what kinds of things you can substitute in a recipe if you're missing an ingredient, etc.

I checked on Amazon.co.uk, and it's available on there, so it should be widely available in the Ireland.

There are also a TON of recipes available online now too. I like some of the things available from the Food Network. Many of Rachel Ray's recipes, for instance, can be found there and they (for the most part) don't require any weird ingredients or tools to prepare (and hers often are finished within 30 minutes to boot!). There are some other websites that give great recipes as well -- so I'd suggest a Google search or two.

epicurious.com is a fantastic recipe site...some of the dishes on there are a bit complicated, but it's got literally thousands of recipes, and it's a really easy site to navigate.

In addition to recipes, I'd really recommend observing/helping friends who've already moved out and are cooking on their own. I'd taken cooking classes for years, but there was nothing like seeing things firsthand. For example, I have a friend, Daniel, who I call my "cooking inspiration" for being able to whip up amazing vegetarian dishes from scratch and without recipes. It also helps to look through supermarkets for what's seasonally cheap. Because I don't have a lot of money for food (or in general), I base my meals on what cheap produce I find that day/week. And you can definitely start practicing now!

There are quite a lot of cookbooks out there written for teens in your situation, such as "The Survival Guide to Cooking in the Student Kitchen" by Susan Crook.

If you google something along the lines of "student guide to cooking", you will get plenty of results
