Is there a diet for high cholesterol?

I am the primary cook in the house and I want to make sure I am not cooking anything that is high cholesterol to help my family.  Is there a diet that anyone can recommend that I can use as an example when preparing our weekly menus?

I found this in the health pages but I am virtually clueless of what trans fats are and what they are in:

Hi gymdandee,

Do you have a link?  I am new to the site and I don't know how to find my way around here just yet, but would love to see your feedback.
