    There are some great kids cook books available, maybe see of the local library has a few to check out?

    In the mean time, just have her start helping you. Have her make meat balls for spaghetti night, or tear lettuce for salad, shes old enough to learn to peel vegetables too. Just supervise and make sure shes safe while she does it

    Grilled cheese. Italian soup. Chili. Pasta. Cooking is really easy since it’s mostly guess work with the measurements, baking is where it gets technical

    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.

    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!
