is you have a crock pot or slow cooker– a jar of salsa and 2 chicken breast- 8 hours in the pot, at the 6 or 7 hour mark shred chicken with two forks let it simmer. prepare onions and pepers in fry pan —


have tortia wraps on plate, put peper onion combo on than put chicken top with sour cream, guacomoie and cheese and eat like fajta or you can put the chicken in the wraps and make tacquitos  buy frying the wrapped creation in some veg oil –til golden brown on both sides and then take it off pan – put on plate add cheese place in microwave til cheese is melted and serve all the tradtional topping– salsa,sour cream ,guacomie..

Pinterest has some really great, easy recipies. You can check out my board to get started: http://pinterest.com/amylchestnut/yummers/

The main thing about cooking (or getting back into cooking) is to try stuff out (you will have failures) and learn the basics. From there you can change the themes to make things more exciting.

We love the crockpot and use it (with crockpot liner bags for easy cleanup) as much as possible.

Sometimes we’ll go all-out and do a really interesting, elaborate meal (Indian, Greek, etc). Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are helpful for some of the non-standard marinades and side dishes.

I also always try to make sure that at least half of what we’re going to be eating is seasonal fresh or frozen (but never canned) veggies (sometimes that comes in the form of a side dish; sometimes it’s part of the actual main dish).

Some of our go-to’s are:

chili with cornbread (on sundays)

turkey taco night

chicken Caesar salad

pasta (variety of toppings/sauces–you can go all veg on this and it’s still hearty)


(beef, chicken, turkey and salmon) burgers (on the grill…even in the winter!)

pork loin

pot roast

fish (salmon, grouper, whatever’s looking good at the grocery store)

and of course chicken a million ways (try different dry rubs and marinades to make it exciting!)

Hope this helps!!

When I first started cooking for two, I only used websites that had a TON of reviews under each recipe. Websites like foodnetwork.com and allrecipes.com. Make sure you peruse the reviews, because most of the times the reviews will tell you if the recipe is worth it or not. I used to only make a recipe if it had over 200+ reviews (I hate to waste good ingredients on a crappy recipe).
