Needless to say, not only is this totally not healthy for our persons, it's unhealthy for our bank account too. I'm trying to get back into the swing of home cooked meals but my food creativity bank has seemingly run dry and the internet has way too many recipes. Meal planning for a week will take me two weeks at the rate it takes me to find recipes that 1) sound tasty 2) are simple enough to make in an hour and 3) may have some ingredients I already have or at least share a common ingredient with another recipe.
I can make a mean stuffed pepper, there's baked ziti baking away in the oven right now for my lunch and the lovely's dinner (I work nights this week) and have on occasion been known to make a tasty salad, but most of the time I find myself cooking the same foods over and over again because they're familiar and ridiculously easy. To be quite honest, I'm getting tired of lemon chicken and rice, cayenne beef with rice and mixed veggies... I'm tired of making the same stuff twice a month.
That's where I need your help. I know a lot of you are domestic goddesses (and gods!) and can probably whip up some delicious dinners on the fly. Please share your favorite recipes here with me either in the comments or, if you want to keep your recipe a secret, email them to me at artful.danni(at)gmail(dot)com. I'm interested in anything you'd like to share, but if you have some awesome summertime receipes to spare making my sweltering apartment any hotter, share those first! Also, if you have any favorite websites you use to find recipes or have any meal planning tips, share those too!
My appetite and my poor, food bored husband, will thank you!
P.S... I should probably note here that I'm allergic to shellfish. So unfortunately, will not be able to try any recipes containing shrimp, clams, scallops, crab meat, etc.
