It all started a week into quarantine when my boredom peaked to the point that I was willing to cook something just so that I can have something other than schoolwork to do. Mind you, I have never cooked anything more than fried eggs and instant noodles, so if I can make these, I can almost guarantee that you can too. But for the sake of some people that have never even boiled water, I’ve divided the three recipes into categories of easy just so that everyone can make something. So get to the kitchen and scroll down for three easy recipes categorized into levels of easy.
