But in terms of easy dishes, I cook things like pasta with chicken or veggies grilled with a side of roasted potatoes. Quick meals are always simple to make involving a meat or poultry and a veggie and side.
Salmon is very easy to make and cooks in 10 minutes in a broiler. The key is to not let your food dry out. Just breathe and focus on your goal. It is not terribly difficult as people seem to make it. I wish you well.

My standard advice is to start small. Once you are comfortable in the kitchen, you can start to expand. Too often, I've seen people start off big and get discouraged if it doesn't work.
I think everyone should have a copy of "The Joy of Cooking". It is a great resource! It's not a pretty book with lots of pictures, but technique and foods are very thouroughly described.
Martha Stewart has a new cookbook that I think is called "Cooking School" or something similar. It does have pictures to guide you along.
Palua Dean has a kid's cookbook out now that I love, especially for new cooks (of any age)! Each recipe is a "normal" food, they are quick and easy, and the instructions are very detailed.

I can talk about cooking for hours, it is my favorite hobby and very relaxing for me. I bake too, but that gets me in trouble cause I love homemade desserts. I agree with kat81 about the slow cooker, great way to start off. Soups, stir frys, and pastas are easy. Meats are harder but once you get it you get it.

i also like to get together with friends to try new recipes. we did a supper club for a while where everyone brought something & the recipe. it didn't stick though.
