Help Me Teach My Cousin How to Cook

LanaD | Apr 15, 2012 11:08 AM

My cousin has never been much of a cook and has recently moved to Reno. I've forwarded some recipes that are easy with cooking tips, but it's not working. I realize that Reno is a higher altitude than Chicago (where I'm from) and I think this might be a contributing factor. I have educated myself on how altitude affects cooking, but it's difficult offering guidance from a distance. I've suggested she watch cooking shows for some basic techniques too. She's gotten disgusted with her progress after wasting alot of food. She can't afford to enroll in a cooking class either. Does anyone have a good source for (free) on-line instructions or good beginner recipe books? I'd like to help instead of just nominating her for Worst Cooks in America. Thanks!
