A good idea would be my built like a fighter article, it will give her some basic strength training along with some more cardio hitting weight training.

Routine A
Squat - 5x5
Bench Press - 5x5
Barbell Row - 5x5

Routine B
Deadlift - 5x5
Overhead Press - 5x5
Chin-Ups - 3xfailure
Dips - 3xfailure

Increasing the weight each session if all target numbers are hit. Done three times a week, alternately i.e. ABA, BAB, on alternate days. Easy.

That is way too much for somebody just starting out on their weightlifting journey. Stick to just doing the StrongLifts routine by itself. You say it's too quick and easy, wait until the lifts start getting heavy. When you are squatting over 300 lbs, it will take a lot longer to get trough the routine and you won't want to be doing much more. It's not about how long you spend in the gym, it's what you do while you're in there. Get stronger!

I did SL for twelve weeks and it became brutal towards the end. I also achieved, what the program said I would.

I thought it was a joke at first, I wasn't laughing at the end.
