WHAT SHOULD I MAKE FOR DINNER?

I'm tired of the same old stuff...not much of a cook either (I can follow directions and all, not a chef by any means)...looking for something different...fairly simple...tasty as hell.

My answer to that question will forever and always be "Ravioli."

Based on what you said (and it won't help you tonight)you should look for a book called "The Dinner Doctor". It helps you take ordinary food, often prepackaged or "easy" stuff and jazz it up into something interesting. Actually some good stuff in there for when you don't want to spend too much time.

When all else fails...a stirfry will feed the nation'n'imagination! So many combinations of meat, sauce'n'vegs...rice or fresh noodles. You can make a different'un every night!

I got a chicken casserole that never fails.

Bake 6 frozen or fresh chicken breasts until cooked according to directions. Allow to cool slightly. Tear chicken and place in bottom of casserole pan, creating layer of chicken. Mix 1 c. sour cream with one can cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup (according to your own preferences), add 1 T cooking sherry to creamy mix and stir thoroughly. Add layer of creamy mix on top of chicken. Finish off with layer of crushed Ritz crackers (I use one roll of crackers with 1 T of melted butter in to make crust really nice). Cook at 350 for 30 mins or until center of casserole is hot. I usually use a large casserole pan and double the recipe -- heats up really well for leftovers.

We had risotto ... chop up onions, garlic and whatever random veg you have handy, start sauteing them gently. Add risotto rice, and mix it all up till the rice is coverd in oil. Add some water or stock (I use water because I don't like things salty, but if I could be bothered to make my own stock that would work) and simmer it, stirring regularly, until the rice is cooked. Add a knob of butter and plenty of parmesan

No doubt hopelessly unauthentic, but easy, filling and tastes good

Put boneless country pork ribs in your slow cooker in the morning, on low. Dump a bottle of bbq sauce on them and when you come home, OMG, heaven!

The crockpot has become my friend since I went back to school full time. Ribs, pot roast, chicken breasts, chili, even meatloaf...you name it, I am bound to try cooking it in a crockpot. My one of my boys likes the meat loaf and the last time I made it in the crock pot, I told the boys we are having meatloaf. THe son who likes it says "oh, meaploaf in a crackpot....my favorite!"

The crock pot is one of the best inventions of all time. I cook down chicken or a roast on Sunday and then just make tacos, enchiladas, flautas, bbq sandwiches, etc with what I cooked down during the week. Lasts a few days and boy does it make meal planning easy. I am also a big fan of just the good ol' chicken stir fry served with soba noodles or brown rice.
Good luck and Happy eating!

Besides the crockpot I use my roaster all the time - with the cost of gas (my oven is gas) it is so much more cheaper and economical to use my roaster and it is wonderful in the summer when you want a nice meal, but don't want to heat up the house - I would be lost without it - and either one of my crockpots - btw - I have ribs on now for dinner tomorrow night - just like was said earlier.

The website allrecipes has lots of quick & easy meals. I think you can look it up by that.. I know you can look up recipes by ingredients.
