    Hi all, I recently accepted a position as a cook at a nursing home. Twice a week I am working with a group of residents on a cooking activity. I am searching for ideas to implement in this respect. Please keep in mind that sometimes their attention may wander. Thanks in advance, Ralph.

    Here are links for catagories in our database that you might find helpful...

    Easy - 3 Steps or Less

    Easy - 5 Ingredients or Less

    Easy - Beginner Cook

    You might need to sort through the recipes using the "recipe sifter" (hover your cursor on "top recipes" box, the recipe sifter (blue box) is on the lower right of drop down menu) for dietary restrictions (low salt, low fat, etc).

    FYI there is a glitch that currently prevents the sifter from being used with the IE browser. icon_sad.gif

    If they are elderly, many of them have undoubtedly had significant experience in cooking. You might check with the residents and/or their families for some favorite recipe suggested that might be appropriate. Might stir some good memories.

    One recipe came to mind "omelets in a bag" so I typed "in a bag" into the search engine and multiple recipes popped up!

    Toss all the ingredients into a heavy duty ziploc bag, and voila!

    I like this one, they would have something to take home at the end of class.

    This is easy and tasty.
    I try to get the low sodium onion soup mix, or use 1/2 an envelope.
    You can make your own to control the salt content. There are recipes int he data base for that.


    Cranberry Chicken, I use canned whole cranberry
    Catalina-Style Salad Dressing I made this instead of using bottled for the dressing. I used 1/2 as much canola oil.

    I always have Perdue single serving chicken breast halves in the freezer for those days when am squeezed for time. They defrost in a flash.

    Depending on their condition and strength, they could mix and knead dough and use a rolling pin to make cinnamon rolls or bread. They could mix cookie dough, and either make drop cookies, rolled ball cookies or cutouts. Kneading, stirring and using a rolling pin double as being good physical therapy for upper body strength.
