Honestly, cooking can and should be very easy. The following pictures were taken two weeks ago when I was cooking before Passover for Shabbat. We needed good festive food to honor Shabbat, but because Passover was just a couple of days away, I didn't want to deal with anything fussy or unnecessary. That's why all the food was in disposables and to be baked in the oven. Even the kasha (buckwheat) which was baked with water and covered. It came out perfectly delicious.
I'm not going to list the ingredients in any of these dishes, because I want to stress that there's great flexibility and creativity in cooking. Don't blindly follow recipes.
Cooking should be fun and stress free. Use these pictures for inspiration, copy the freedom not the slavery.
