East Asian currys are really easy to make and are really good.
By that I mean japanese, or thai. Can't speak for the other types of currys.

As for baking, it's kind of hard no matter what since I feel like it's kind of really easy to fuck up :/ But I suppose pizza is somewhat easy and almost counts as baking?

Go for the thai green curry, literally all you need is to get thai curry paste and coconut milk and you're pretty much half way there already.
Don't forget to make the rice with coconut milk and salt too :^)

hamburgers. Flatten ground beef into patties and cook. They will shrink so keep that in mind

Chicken soup (not as fancy as in the picture)



And beef stew (not as fancy as in the picture)



are you interested in knowing how?

Make a quesadilla, they seem fancy but it really is just a tex mex cheese toasty ;p
I boil chicken then pull it as well as finely slice some sweet peppers to put in mine.

As for baking I suggest most kinds of drop cookie.. there are loads but most are just sifting all the dry stuff
together, beating the fat and eggs until smooth then adding the dry to it, after that the milk ( if the recipe needs it )
until it is the right texture.

try this one, it is simple and yummy, it might look complex but there is only really 4 steps:

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/9986/chocolate-peanut-butter-cup-cookies/

1/get the stuff ready to mix
( cut up the buttercups, sift ( this just means putting through a sieve) the flour, baking soda and cocoa in a bowl, then in a second bowl cream (this just means mix with the convex side of a spoon against the side until smooth ) the butter, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar.)

2/Mix it
( add the eggs to the creamed bowl one at a time beating it in each time, then the vanilla. After this is ready add in the dry bowl and stir throughly, then mix in the goodies! choc chips, buttercups and peanut butter chips )

3/ cook it!

4/LEAVE IT!
( honestly drop cookies harden after they are cold, so leave them alone after they are done )

you will be fine if you follow the recipe xP
Sorry about getting carried away, I do like baking xD

Stir-fry or fajitas is basically chopped meat and veggies in a pan. Grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup is easy, too. Can add some spinach to it if you're into that.

Do you have a particular nationality of food you prefer? Also although not required, knowing your city/state would help to know if you have access to ingredients. I live near Seattle WA USA so finding asian food ingredients is not difficult. However if you live in remote town in say... Utah maybe fish or some other ingredient would be a bit troublesome to find. CR has a manga cookbook I believe it retails around $13 I bought for a friend. Its really cute, easy to understand/make makes for fun meal times. Konpai!

Could also just experiment for yourself and see what tastes good and what doesn't. Anything involving meat, some type of sauce, and starchy foods are usually impossible to mess up on.
