bakicisns: easy to use blogging sites?

The abbreviation stands for "because all knowledge is contained in social networking sites".

My dad has been living on his own for the first time in 50 years, since my mom recently had to go into a memory care facility. When they were together, his cooking repertoire was mostly limited to barbecue. Now he is turning cooking into a hobby and I'm really proud of him. I suggested that he start a blog, "Learning to cook at 77" and he seems interested.

He uses a Mac and is fairly computer-savvy, but I think a simple blog would be best. Which blogging site/software is easiest to use, in your opinion? I don't think he would need the privacy features of LJ or Dreamwidth, but he might need comment-spam management. The cost should be no more than $50/year.
