I believe that the easiest path to success would be to start with some of their favorite things to eat. You're guaranteed at least half a win on that. Even if they don't like the cooking the food will be a winner. There's plenty of time to experiment after their interest is piqued.
Chocolate chip cookies. The recipe is on the bag, as I recall.
If she wants to make a "grown-up" meal, broiling a steak, baking a potato and steaming a vegetable is pretty simple, but the results are impressive. Serve with a Zinfandel from Sonoma County made by a winery with an Italian last name. (For you and her other parent, not for her.)
If that's too expensive, hamburgers in buns are pretty good. Bonus points for grilling them over mesquite charcoal instead of broiling them. Negative points for frying.
Do they like deviled eggs or egg salad sandwiches?
Good opportunity to learn about using the stove and boiling water safely and it's pretty hard to screw up a hard-boiled egg.
I think the first things I learned to cook were pancakes (from an "add water" mix), grilled cheese sandwich and a bechamel sauce (I wanted to know how to make a proper macaroni and cheese). I'm telling you...learning how to make a roux and basic sauce is one of those skills I use all the time and I'm always amazed at how many adults have no clue how to do it. Thanks mom!
