Many of you know I'll be the Foods teacher this year at my school. Now I enjoy cooking and baking, but I've never been formally taught it myself (Home Economics was never offered at any school I attended).

my students: generally low to middle class, considered at-risk, some struggling to live on own

my kitchen: pretty small, no fan, will probably fit 5-6 youth at a time BUT I have a food mixer and a food processor and an oven/stove along with maybe a few other nifty items

my class: I'm holding it every Thursday for 3 hours; the youth will need to attend at least two to three classes in order to earn a high school credit; the bonus is that they get to eat for lunch whatever they cook

my ideas: I'm considering a few themed classes along the line of holidays or nationalities, but mostly I want to focus on nutrition and affordability

What fabulous recipes or dishes do you think these youth should learn or would like to learn? So far, a few of my ideas include crepes (savory and dessert), quiche, pizza, homemade pasta, taco salad, sushi, chicken caesar salad, fajita, hummus, lasagna, bannock, chili with cornbread (although I could use a good tried and true recipe for both)...
