    if you're a big fan of chinese food the easiest recipe that I'd suggest would be chicken and sugar snap peas in black bean sauce!

    2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 cup of frozen sugar snap peas
    4 tbsp black bean paste (available in the ethnic aisle in most grocieries)
    1 tsp corn starch
    1/2 cup of water

    throw chicken in a saucepan- cover with water and boil until done- about 15 min or so
    cut chicken into strips after it's cool enough to work with
    add chicken and sugar snap peas into the pan
    mix bean paste, water and cornstarch in a small bowl with a fork or whisk until well mixed
    add to the pan and cook until the peas are done
    serve over rice which you hopefully haven't burned!

    better and cheaper than ordering takeout!

    one english muffin
    sausage patty (I prefer spicy/hot over mild)
    hard boiled egg
    shredded cheese (preferably cheddar or pepper jack)
    cream cheese
    ketchup
    hot sauce (preferably lousianna, but what ever you like)

    1.Toast English muffin lightly in toaster (I use thomas's, but you probably could use a bagel)
    2.Fry sausage
    3. Slice a piece of the egg, prefferably from the middle eat or use the rest on a salad for later or whatever.
    4. Spread creamcheese on half of the muffin put on sauage followed by egg then cheese. Put under broiler just enough to melt the cheese, and reheat muffin
    5. take other half of muffin and squirt ketchup and hot sauce on it. spread it around.
    6. Put lid on eat

    If you don't like spicy food you can leave off the hotsauce and use mild sausage. You can do this however you want, this is how I created it orginally

    -fry sausage, or thick slice of ham, or use cold sliced ham, or nothing
    -slice some cheese, or use the fake sliced stuff if you want
    -cover liberally in pepper/salt if desired
    -add tomatoes/onions/lettuce etc if desired (I like to add spinach if I have it)
    -assemble into sandwich form

    I make this probably a couple times a week cause it's super fast, cheap, and delicious. And reasonably healthy.

    that sounds good. but I mean you can boil the egg a head of time and fry sausage as well just re heat it. and you could use slice cheese I just never have any.

    oo this is a simple one

    pasta cooked and drained

    Pesto:
    basil (fresh)
    pine nuts
    garlic
    olive oil
    parmasean (not kraft)
    I like to toast the pine nuts slightly but you don't have to put basil pine nuts and garlic and cheese in food proccessor taste adjust as needed. slowly ad olive oil till you reach desired consistancy.

    You can also buy this already made. but I find it simple enough to make from scratch. I never measure I'm good at eyeballing.

    Alfredo
    a cup of heavy cream
    1/4 cup butter
    garlic
    parmasean (not kraft) or something similar.

    melt butter add cream and let simmer for roughly five minutes add cheese and crushed garlic

    shrimp and prawns sauted

    put everything in large bowl toss with pasta and serve feel free to add different vegetables I sometimes add spinach and mushrooms.


    now this one I made pesto using lemon and parsley and garlic. and it's completly vegetarian

    Put into a food proccessor.
    A bunch of Parsley
    about a half a lemon completely peeled (I did use the juice of the second lemon)
    3 clove garlic more or less depended on how garlic you like (I used roughly 4, it was fairly garlicy)

    blend, taste adjust accordingly

    paramesean cheese as much or as little as you like blend again taste

    while food proccessor is on slowly add olive oil, when you reach the consistancy you like turn off and set aside. You can also stop the food proccesor every now and then to check, and if you get it too thin add more parsley.

    I didn't measure formally so use your judgement

    Slice/chop fresh mushrooms depending on how you like them put frying pan on stove with minimum amount of olive oil. The pesto already has alot of oil you just don't want the mushroom's to stick.

    While that's cooking. chop tomatoes in half for the last minute or so of cooking the mushrooms throw them in to heat them up a bit.

    Somewhere between the pesto, mushrooms, tomatoes make the pasta. It's going to depend on whether you're using fresh pasta which takes less time, (about 2 minutes too cook) or boxed (6-10 minutes) when pasta is done drain put in bowl, pour pesto sauce add tomatos and mushrooms add goat cheese (I used to crumbles) toss and serve.

    Serve with salad and bread. If you want you could even make a nice steak to go with it.

    I didn' put measurements because it's one of those dishes that depends on personal taste, and you know you're own taste better then me. I also don't remember how much of what I used except it was good. The key is tasting frequently.

    I tend to love to cook and be creative in the kitchen.. The second pasta dish I created for my mom for mother's day. I also post this on another message board. glad I did cuz I could not remember exactly what I did. BTW my mom made home made pasta for this as it was a special occasion. Just didn't get around to making it until my brother birthday (June 14)

    I'm going to try that, I love alfredo sauce and I've never gotten around to experimenting/looking up a recipe for it before, for some reason.

    I miss cooking, but I have no one to cook for. My mom use to have me make dinner occasionally. I really don't like cooking for myself, I like the food I make I just don't want to cook for myself I like making something with someone else in mind.

    Easy Marinara sauce: 1 or 2 cans tomato puree, a few cloves of fresh garlic, chopped or crushed (you can use garlic powder if you must, but it's not as good), and olive oil (enough to coat the bottom of a pot).

    Heat up the olive oil in a pot, then stir in the garlic. Add the tomato puree and let simmer for about 40 minutes.

    You can throw in some Italian sausages, too, but if you do, cook for at least two hours, to make sure they're fully cooked.
