    okay heres a good question...i recently moved out from my parents house and oooh i miss my moms cooking! i never cooked before, and i was lucky in that my boyfriend could cook wonderful meals. however we split after a bit of a violence issue occured (he even threw little henry! what gives!) anyways...now im stuck attempting to cook for myself! ah!

    im really picky....i only eat veggies and chicken, the odd time ground beef. Im dealthly allergic to all fish and seafood so all sauces and such have to be monitored.
    I find myself stuck eating mashed potatoes and salad every night now lol. i need heeeeeelp!

    The Food Network

    The Food Network is a great place to start. They have a couple of great shows that are pretty informative and entertaining.

    They also have a website that has tons of great recipes. Rachel Ray has lots of great recipes with all sorts of things that can be fixed up in 30 minutes or so.

    Here is a good one, I do not think it is from Rachel Ray:

    Turkey Burgers Parmigiana

    Real simple:

    1lb ground turkey
    1 small onion chopped up
    1/4 breadcrumbs
    1 tsp dried basil

    Italian Pasta Sauce
    Cheese (Mozarella or Provolone but you can use whatever you like)

    Mix the first three ingredients. Form into four burgers fry for about 10 minutes a side top a slice of cheese and with a couple of teaspons of pasta sauce. wait until the cheese melts and serve on a bun or not up to you. The best pat about using turkey is it keeps pretty well and remains pretty juicy.

    I forgot the side dish

    The side dish is even easier.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees

    Take small red potatos(4-6 per serving) cut up into small pieces and lay out on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season to taste. I like salt, pepper, and oregano but you can use tons of different things(dried basil, thyme, marojam, lowerys seasoning salt, you name it)

    Bake for 20 minutes or so

    We call that Italian potato salad. Except we add fresh tomatoes to it and lots of fresh basil. It can be served room temp and it's even better.

    I like your recipe better than mine

    That sounds really good. I will make those additions the next time I make the roasted potatoes.

    I was just watching the food network and they had a feature on hummus. A compnay that makes hummus has two flavors that I am going to make at home, kalmata olive and also roasted red pepper. Sounds too good.

    All the best,

    Shredded Beef Tacos

    This is for Shredded Beef Tacos or anything Shredded Beef. I can always go for a little mexican and unfortunately it is hard to find any that is worthwhile where I currently live so I make my own.

    I love the shredded beef that you find at most authentic places and here is how I make mine:

    1-2lbs of Beef (I usually use a Beef Brisket, but a Chuck Roast will work fine too)
    Two cups of water
    1 can of tomato sauce
    2 tsp of cumin
    2 cloves of garlic coarsely chopped

    Into the crock pot it all goes and let it cook for ten hours. It is really fantastic and lasts for a few different meals.

    I make enchiladas with it, chimichangas, tacos, all good stuff.

    we don't eat beef. you'd be amazed at what you can do with ground turkey! I don't buy the all white meat ground turkey..tooooo dry. the mix of dark and white meat is inexpensive, too. if I want a 'beefy taste', I add a bit of beef broth. I've made stuffed cabbage..peppers...meatloaf...spaghetti...all delish with the turkey.

    my fave summer meal:

    linguine (cooked per package directions)
    chopped fresh basil
    chopped fresh tomatoes (as much as you might like)
    extra virgin olive oil
    fresh grated romano cheese

    after cooking linguine, I toss with the basil, olive oil, tomatoes. top with grated romano. it's cheap...it's delish! for us...a bit of garlic is a must, too.

    sometimes I add hot cubed cooked chicken breast.

    Shhhhhhhhh Debi. Romano cheese is a secret. I have used nothing but Romano most of my life. It has a far better flavor than parmesan but we don't want everyone to know that. The price will go up!

    I'm tossing in this cookie recipe..cause it's easy, which means I LOVE IT lol

    refrigerated cookie dough...I use peanutbutter, sugar cookie dough will do
    slice...flatten....wrap around a Snickers MINI candy bar into a ball (seal well)

    place on nonstick cookie sheet...bake 10-12 mins. at 350

    when cool, you can drizzle with white icing (I now skip this part, but have used the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, milk..mix well....thin enough to drizzle over the cookie. at Christmas you can color the icing red and green)

    our other big summer fave is to grill boneless chicken breast (I marinate overnight in Zesty Italian dressing) ...slice thin

    lay over fresh spinach..mushrooms...thin sliced cucumber..tomatoes (whatever you like really...whatever I have on hand)

    top with a sprinkling of your fave cheese...we like Monteray Jack and Cheddar

    we live on this most of the summer. :)

    Deb you might like the traditional southern Italian frittata. You make it in cast iron with zucchini, potatoes, onions, romano and lots of eggs and spices. It cooks in the pan like a pie and you top the top off in the oven for a few minutes. Then you tip the pan over onto a plate and it's lightly browned on top and you slice it like pie and eat it with some nice crusty bread. If you use a dozen eggs and all the ingredients, it goes far too. Also great leftover!

    quick and easy!

    You can make this one with any veggis that you like, or what ever is left over, or what doesn't look yummy enough anymore to be eaten fresh.

    I (ushally) use:

    - Carrots
    - Mushrooms
    - Celery
    - Bell Peppers
    -Onions
    -butter/olive oil for frying

    (If you want to make it asian add:
    -Bamboo sprouts
    -Soy sauce
    -a little bit coconut milk)

    (If you want it to be more italien add:
    -Canned Tomatoe sauce
    -Parmasan (or any other cheese that you want)
    -olives)




    What to do:

    1) Cut up veggies.
    2) Put some butter/olive oil into a frying pan and put in some onions and let them turn a little brown.
    3) Add the veggies (if you are using mushrooms add them shortly before it done otherwise they'll be really mushy(lol...bad joke))
    4)Let the Veggies soften a little bit.
    If you are doing the tomatoe version season with italien herds, salt, pepper, garlic(powder), sugar(the tom. sauce has alot of acid in it, sugar tones it down a bit)
    If you are doing the asian version NO SALT!(Soy sauce is salty enough) season with pepper, (curry), paprika, a LITTLE TINY INSY bit cayenne pepper.


    5) Add the soy sauce/toma. sauce

    6) Let it warm up



    *If you want you can make basmati rice along with it. Try not seasoning the rice at all! I love i that way :D*
