What sort of things do you want to make? Just meals or baking as well? Though baking well can take a lot of practice.

@meglor:  One of my favs is poppyseed chicken casserole. Pretty much impossible to mess up. All you need is chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, ritz crackers, butter, and (optional) rice or noodles. What I do is boil and shred the chicken (as much or as little as you like) and boil 2.5 cups rice (for a family of five).. Mix one large, family-sized can of cream of chicken with a small container of sour cream (add more or less to your liking), then mix the rice, chicken, and the soup mixture and add to the bottom of a baking dish (I use 9×13). Then crush up some ritz crackers (I use a whole sleeve) and coat well with melted butter. Top the casserole with the crackers and a sprinkle of poppyseeds, then pop in the oven at 350* F until the crackers are brown and the casserole is hot (around twenty minutes, give or take). 

I love this recipe because you can change it so easily. You can leave out the rice and serve it over noodles, or serve it over rice instead of adding it in. You can play with any of the ingredients and it will turn out fine. I’ve alao heard of adding cheese to the top underneath the ritz crackers but I’ve never tried it.

One of FI’s favorite dishes is Tater Tot Casserole. I adapted the recipe and make it with tater tots, vegetarian beef crumbles, onions, and cheese. It’s delicious! 🙂

@meglor:  I’ve been baking all my life, and never really learned to cook properly, haha. I wish I had some decent cooking recipes to share with you. Usually I just throw stuff in the pan and make it all up as I go along.

Mexican stuffed shells are my favorite!!! 1 pound ground beef, 1 package of taco seasoning, 1 package of cream cheese, 1 bottle of taco sauce, 1 box of jumbo shells, and 1 package of shredded cheddar cheese. Brown the beef, add the taco seasoning according to packet, then add the cream cheese. Cook it all together until the cream cheese is melted and it’s all mixed together. Cook the shells, let them cool and then put about a tablespoon full of the mixture into each shell. I like to line my pan with aluminum foil. After it’s lined, spread taco sauce around on the bottom and put the shells into the pan. Pour the remaining taco sauce over the top of the shells. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes is up, remove the  tin foil and cover the shells in the shredded cheddar cheese. Bake uncovered 10 more minutes. Then take out and enjoy! They’re out of this world! But sooo bad for you.

@meglor:  I made mac n cheese last night. I have an obsession with this mac n cheese from a local restaurant and they wont give out the recipe.  I found a site that supposedly has their recipe.  It was soooo goood!!!!  It could have used a little more sharp cheddar but that is the cheese lover in me.  It was 1 cup Dukes mayo, 1 cup sour cream, 1 3/4 uncooked noodles, 2 cups mozzarella, 2 cups sharp cheddar and a little salt and pepper to taste.  Top with crushed buttery crackers.  Cook the noodles, drain add in the rest of the ingredients except the crushed crackers.  Place in over safe dish, top with the cracker crumbs and put in the oven for 30 mins at 350.

I love to make homemade alfredo sauce instead of buying a jar- it’s so much better and very easy. Dice 2 garlic cloves and cook it with 2 tbsp butter in a medium saucepan. Then add 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir until it starts to boil and the cheese melts down. Serve over fettuccini or whatever noodle you want. Garnish with fresh parsley and some more parmesan cheese. Great with some proscuitto, shrimp, peas, breaded chicken, clams, whatever you want 🙂

 

Another easy recipe is breaded chicken tenders with gorgonzola dip (finger food) – make sour cream mixture of sour cream, some lemon zest and red pepper flakes. Coat skinless chicken tenders with the mixture and then cover in breadcrumbs- I usually do a mixture of Italian crumbs and panko. Then bake until done- 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. For the dip, mix 1/2 c sour cream, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, 1/2 cup mayo, and 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese, and some parsley. The dip is to die for!
