Not a good cook!

Looking for advice.

Sick of eating the same crap all the time.

Anyone out there that isn't the best cook and don't have tons of time that has found a solution to making better meals?

Remember, not the best cook.


Re: Not a good cook!

  • Nosey asked something similar the other day, and there was some pretty good stuff mentioned.

    OMG - thank you SO much SLouWE.

  • aw I wasn't here for the recipe post the other day so I'll add a few here... these measurements are kinda vague but you cant really mess these up too much.:

    salsa chicken - throw frozen or thawed boneless skinless chicken breasts into a crock pot (as many as you want). cover with salsa. They don't have to be "soaking" in salsa... for 5 breasts, I usually put 2 12 oz jars in there. cook on low all day while you're at work... I serve them over white rice with a little shredded cheese on top. N looooves these and its SUPER simple!


    Italian beef sandwiches - buy a beef roast, throw it in the crock pot with 2 jars of banana pepper rings and 2 packets of italian dressing mix. cook on low for 8 hours. If the juice from the jars of banana peppers doesnt cover the roast, just add water. when its done cooking, tear meat apart and serve on hoagie rolls. I personally, put the meat on hoagie rolls, cover in mozzarella cheese and bake until the cheese is melted but thats just a personal touch.


    chicken/stuffing casserole - put 4 thawed, boneless skinless chicken breasts in the bottom of a baking dish, cover each breast with a slice of provolone cheese, cover with cream of mushroom soup, top with a box of dry stuffing mix. drizzle a little butter (maybe 1/3 cup) over the top.  bake on 350 for an hour. 


    tuna casserole - (I'm not a fan of tuna but this is really easy and doesn't taste too tuna-y) - boil egg noodles and drain, add 2 cans of drained tuna fish, 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, about a 1/2 bag of mozzarella cheese. Stir together. place in a casserole dish. Spread the rest of the bag of mozzarella cheese over the top. bake until the cheese is melted and you can see the cream of mushroom soup bubbling. ( I think I normally cook this for about a half hour) 


    I don't know if anyone else posted this one but its pretty good and easy too:

    This is really good too. I've been making my own version of this for years and I made it for dinner last night for N and his mom. They both said it was the best meatloaf they've ever had, hands down.

    Hope that helps!!!
