Ah, everything. But I find making manicotti from scratch relaxing

@NK2012:  I LOVE this hummus-crusted chicken with veggies. So easy & simple but delicious and healthy too! I also love that I can swap out the veggies listed in the recipe with pretty much any veggie I want or have in my fridge. Add to that the fact that there is ALWAYS hummus in my fridge & chicken in the freezer & it’s become a regular weekly meal for us!

i don’t know if this is considered actual cooking but chicken stir fry. cube chicken breasts, cook in a pan. add it to a pot of mixed veggies (broc, carrots, peas, water chesnuts) and toss w/ teriyaki sauce. serve over brown rice. our favorite cause it is so quick to make and yummy!

I LOVE making bread. So easy (with a stand mixer). DH’s favorite meal for me to cook and one I like cooking would have to be greek pizza:

Make a pizza dough you like (I use one off All Recipes that has bread flour and then I add some dried herbs)

Make hummus: 1/3cup Taheni sauce, 1/3 cup lemon jouice, 1 can chickpeas (drain and reserve 1/3 cup liquid), 1T olive oil, cummin, paprika, and minced garlic to taste.

USe the hummus as pizza sauce and top with pre-cooked chicken (poached ot sauted works well), grape tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, and anything else you want.

The hummus as sauce sounds odd but it is amazing!

Cha Shao (Siu) Bao is probably my husband’s favorite thing that I make (I can post the recipe, but it’s pretty involved).  I think I like pot pie casserole the best because it’s so easy (mashed potatoes on bottom, chicken pot pie filling, biscuit crust).

Any desserts, but I am especially good at cookies and bars or brownies.

I love making persian food!  It takes forever but the results are oh soooo yummy. Ghormeh Sabzi is my favorite dish.  You have to have a taste for it, though–some people can’t get over the fact that it looks swampy. My husband is finally developing that taste, so I’m going to start making it more often. 

Victory is mine!!!

Anything in 1 pot!  I love cabbage and kielbasa cooked in bacon grease.  Or Indian curries or other dishes.

Tater tot casserole.


1 lb lean ground beef (or whatever meat you choose)

1/2 bag of frozen tater tots

1 can of green beans

1 can of cream of celery soup.


1. Brown the hamburger meat and drain the excess grease if there is any.

2. Spread the hamburger along the bottom of the crockpot

3. Add green beans and cream of celery soup on top of the meat.

4.  Mix the ingredients together

5. Spread tatertots evenly on top of the mixture.

6. Cook on high for 3 hours.


You can also do it in a 9×13 baking dish at 375 for 45 minutes.

Anything that I can improvise! I hate following a recipe.

Japanese curry!  There are from-scratch recipes out there, but I like the boxed sauce mix the best, even though its probably full of MSG and other not-healthy things.  Its very easy (saute veggies & protein, add water & bring to a simmer, add sauce mix, plop on top of rice), a tasty comfort food, and it makes tons of leftovers to freeze.
