Here are a few more recipes that are easy to begin with.

Fish topped with relish

You can use salmon or any mild white fish with this relish. I have used tilapia, scord, and flounder.

Just brush fish with a little olive oil. Put in oven on 350 and bake until done. Top with relish.


tomato (scoop out some of the liquid inside), and chop
seedless cucumber, chopped
shallots or vaidalia onion, chopped

Put into bowl with 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 cup white vinegar and toss.

Taco salad

1 lb. ground turkey, or beef
1 package taco seasoning
iceburg lettuce, shredded
tomato, chopped
green onion, chopped
cantalina dressing
cheese, shredded
sour cream

Brown meat and drain. Add seasoning. Let it come to room temperature. In a bowl combine lettuce, tomato, green onion, and cooled beef. Add cantalina dressing, just enough to coat, and toss. Put fritos onto plate. Top with lettuce mixture. Grate some cheese on top and add a dollop of sour cream on top.

Go Sooners

Remember, Kurt - ask questions about everything! We have everything from beginners to pro chefs here. Best part is, we all like to help each other out.

Good luck on your searches! Oh, and one more thing - I've also found good old cookbooks on ebay. I prefer the older ones, as they have real ingredients, and most have good, solid nutritional information (none of the new trendy stuff).

As everyone mentioned on here, check out the various forums, lots of info on here. Other than that I would say to head to Borders book store, they have lots of great cookbooks, but I assume since your 17 you dont have lots of money to spend on books, so cutting and pasting recipes from here is alot less expensive

Another good place to find cookbooks is your local library. Check some out to get an idea of what you may want to buy. Also, libraries often have book sales where you can get books very cheaply. Ask about when your library might have one.

Your local newspaper can be a good source of recipes also.

Kurt, there are some great recipes for beginners here:

My grandson is 16, and he's an avid hunter also. There are some great venison recipes here.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Send a message via MSN to crewsk
www.kraftfoods.com is another good site to check out. They also have a free magazine you can sign up for that comes out 4 times a year.

I personally love to go and "surf" Kraftfoods.com it will send you newsletters every so often with new ideas on easy meals. The best way to learn though is to just get in there and start throwing things together. Taste test often and experiment on your own! That is how I have came up a with a few good dishes that everyone raves about! Find one that seems good...alter to your own taste and make it great!

The sweetest sound in the world is the gentle snore of my three year old while she sleeps on my chest! Finally... some peace and quite!!! *smile*
