Question by mkshepherd33: How many people cook and love to cook? Any pointers or suggestions of good food to make??
I love going home after work and cooking for my family- but I’m running out of ideas for dinner. If you love to cook, can you give me some ideas for quick and easy, but yummy dinners??

Bake some breaded chicken patties, then top with warmed pasta sauce and heat in the oven for about 10 min. Then add some mozzarella cheese and return to the oven until cheese is melted. Serve over cooked multigrain pasta with a tossed salad.

Most versatile food—eggs. Best food—Italian. Easiest to make–anyting out of a box.

i grew up in a wild part of alaska and meat is plentiful. but lard is hard to come by. naturally, i love anything cooked in lard. i cook bread, eggs, moose, deer, fish, peas, tators, anything with lard. no matter what you cook, cook in lots of lard and i love it. i am just guessing everybody else will love it too. (have you every had a lard sandwich with just a little salt?)

This is one of my family’s favorites:

BBQ Boneless, skinless chicken thighs(can use any kind of boneless, skinless pieces of chicken)

Season thighs with whatever you like(salt, pepper, garlic salt or powder, onion salt or powder)
Pan fry both sides in about a few tablespoons of EVOO(extra virgin olive oil)
You do not have to get them completely done. take them out of skillet and place them on platter in oven to rest.
Put 1-2 minced cloves garlic and 1/2 cup onion in skillet you just took chicken from, add a little more oil if necessary. Saute a few minutes.
Add 1 cup chicken stock or broth(you can use water if you don’t have stock or broth) to pan and scrape bits off bottom for flavor.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce(we love the Jack Daniels brand). You want it to be fairly thin.
Return chicken to pan and cover with foil or lid and simmer for approx. 20-30 mins.(however long it takes me to finish the side dishes) the meat finishes cooking and the sauce thickens.
The meats so tender you can cut it with a fork.
This is excellent with mashed potatoes & corn or green beans.
The sauce is so yummy over the mashed potatoes since it is thin and not too overpowering. My hubby and kids LOVE it!

Good luck and enjoy whatever you decide to have!

Rachel Ray’s recipes from “30 Minute Meals” are pretty good. They use plenty of mostly healthy, fresh ingredients, and only take about 45 minutes to make (she moves fast).

One technique you might want to look into is “once a month cooking.” In this method, you “batch cook” once a month or once a week, then freeze your meals. This way, you always have something yummy and quick to make. I also keep in eye out for meats on sale (like rotisserie chicken, chuck roast, etc.). If you shred a rotisserie chicken (just the meat), double wrap in plastic, then put in a freezer bag, there are dozens of meals you can make in no time.

There is so much info about cooking, here are just a few websites to get you started! Also, the “Dinner Doctor” cookbook is a good, quick cookbook!

Sometimes the easy ones are the amazingly tasty ones.

My housemate turned me on to putting baby potatoes, fresh green beans (ends snapped/trimmed) and chunks of ham in the pot, covering them with water, and just letting it boil until the potatoes were done. It’s amazingly satisfying while remaining light.

I’m also a big fan of mashed potatoes with sauerkraut and kielbasa sausage.

breakfast for dinner is always a hit in our house. i buy no-sugar-added bacon when its on sale at my local grocer, and keep it in the freezer (it thaws in minutes). we do a big fry-up of bacon, hashed brown potatoes (get the shredded kind either from the refrigerated section by the eggs, or in the freezer section), eggs. i also try to keep a can of wild blueberries on hand (also bought in bulk when on sale) and pancake/baking mix so i can whip up pancakes in a hurry. drain the blueberries, reserving the water or syrup, and put half in your pancake mix and the other half into a small pan with the reserved water (add equal volume of sugar to blueberries) or syrup (don’t add sugar) and reduce the liquid by half for a yummy “homemade” pancake syrup. the whole production takes about 30 minutes, and you can do the bacon in the oven to reduce the mess. put the bacon on a rack in a shallow pan with the fat edge overlapping the lean edge of each slice; put in the oven cold, turn oven on to 425f and check every two to three minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn.

ok – i know this is not the most low calorie meal, but its one where everyone can help out and it’s easy to teach your kids (or husband) to make these food items for themselves and give you a break. its not a meal you’re going to make/eat every week, but its a nice treat, especially in the winter months. and who doesn’t love pancakes?
