People who say they can't cook are either lazy or can't read. It would be better just to say, "I have no desire to cook anything." It is obvious that you are not illiterate. If you can read, you can cook. Start with a good easy recipe cookbook. From there, one can branch out to more elaborate recipes, if they want to. Though, there is really no need to do recipes with endless amounts of ingredients.

Yeah... Lord knows those microwave meals, TV dinners, and restaurants are just as good as homemade food... Granny's old fashioned hand-me-down recipes just don't matter anymore to modern obese, chemical, and preservative-filled Americans.

I sure do hope that isn't true in Georgia, one of the finest capitals of southern cooking. I have resolved to learn all the old recipes from older cooks. My Grandma's, cousins, aunts, etc. have all taught me a lot. Many of the old southern recipes are easier than I ever dreamed. Southern Biscuit flour, buttermilk, and salt mixed together and dropped into chicken broth and cooked while adding condensed milk will yield incredible dumplings (same mixture for biscuits). Roll chicken in it with salt and pepper and paprika and you'll have awesome fried chicken in an iron skillet. Cole slaw requires a little vinegar, cabbage, sugar, salt, and mayo. Potato salad is cooked potatoes, sweet pickle chopped, boiled eggs chopped, and chopped onions mixed together with a little pickle juice, yellow mustard, and mayo. These are just some of the things I can now cook just like Grandma.
