Cooking, soliciting recommendations, boosts are cool 

Is there like a cookbook/website focused on extreme beginners, which has really basic recipes for the obvious meals everyone's heard of, and focuses on the core recipe first and then explains what each ingredient is for?

I feel like every recipe requires too many things that I don't want to keep in stock, so it's be nice to have simple recipes that helped you start small and add fancier ingredients as you experiment.

@emacsen Cool! I usually watch YouTube while having dinner, so those will be great inspiration :D Thank you!

I learned how to cook primarily from Good Eats, but those aren't "basics" for the most part. Ramsey covers stuff how how to cook eggs, how to chop an onion, etc.

I also highly recommend anything America's Test Kitchen. I've used many of their techniques, and they will sometimes change their own minds on techniques, or do things different ways.
