I'm Bringing Cooking Back


I am running out of ideas for dinner recipes. I usually am on top of my game by preparing my weekly meal list on the weekend when I do my grocery shopping. Now my planning is nonexistent mostly from the lack of recipes I am finding. I have been scouring Food Network, Epicurious, etc. and nothing sounds good or sounds like too much of pain in the ass. I get home around 5:30-6 and the last thing I want to do is make a grand feast. I want to just grab a hunk of cheese and a loaf of bread go to bed and call it a night. Hey, at least I am getting two food groups.

I need suggestions. I am in a rut and keep making the same things or just simply making sandwhiches. Hubbs is not complaining (who by the way does.not.cook.what.so.ever). He will eat anything and does not care if it is gourmet or healthy. I care about the healthy part.

My Bottom Line: I am tired of strolling through Safeway with a blank look on my face.

I'm with you. I have the blank look. We've been doing toasted sammiches lately. Not very exciting.

I am of no help to you - I NEVER cook. I am the world's worst housewife.

I like almost every recipe I have tried out of Real Simple. As far as I can tell, all the recipes from the magazine are also on their webpage.

We're constantly in this struggle too.

I really like crock pot ideas. I have a Best Slow Cooker Recipe Book and it has all kinds of goodies, you can always throw it all in the night before in the fridge and pop it in the cooker in the morning before work...
