What are some inexpensive and easy meals to cook for someone who does not know how to cook!?
- I cannot cook
- I am on a tight budget
- I also don't have much time, so the quicker the meal the better
If you are cooking for valentines day, You could do what my mom did to get her now husband. Find a restaurant in your area. Jamaican is best for warming up. Avoid Chinese as much as possible. Get 2 of the same meals on the lunch special. Store it in the refrigerator til 30 mins before he is suppose to be there. When its close to 30 mins chop up a full green pepper,onion and garlic. Put in a pot all together and leave it. It helps to also leave cinnamon sticks, butter and some random fruit slices in a pan for smell only. Warm the lunch food 10 mins before he comes in the microwave to clean pots and bowls. Go outside to the dumpster and throw away the containers. DONT LEAVE THEM IN THE HOUSE. Put the ones you used in the sink. When he walks in stir the food. Lol.
Pasta with tomato sauce. All you have to do is boil water to cook the pasta, and pour the sauce in a pan to heat it.
Want garlic bread? Buy sub rolls in the bakery section of the grocery store, slice them through the center, butter the insides, and sprinkle with garlic powder. Cook at 350 for about 15 minutes.
You could try stir frying. Easy way to cook especially if you like all or most vegetables. Just slice all the ingredients you like, you can have meat like chicken, pork, beef or lamb with the vegetables. Just slice the chicken, fry and add vegetables of your choice and keep stirring until the ingredients are cooked. Cook rice separately and eat it with rice. Not only these are nutritious, they cook in short time. You can even have prawn stir fry with the vegetables. This is delicious. Have fun cooking. Stir frying is the easiest method of cooking and also it takes less time to cook.
I feel your pain. I'm in the same way too. You can make sandwiches, pasta, soup, salad, burgers and hot dogs, easy egg dishes. Go to Pinterest or search online or even here for easy recipes. (I'm just having trouble boiling hard-cooked eggs though.)
Yeah those items are often my 'go-to' foods. I enjoy eating egg salad sandwiches. For hard boiled eggs, cook the egg in boiling water (high temperature) for 12 minutes. Hope that helps
Thanks for the tip Writerjrose. I hope this time it works out for me for lunch. Keep your fingers crossed. I love sliced egg and egg salad sandwiches too.

I was thinking, is it possible to cook a nice dinner in 15 minutes? Not a TV-dinner, something real, that needs preparation, not reheating. Any ideas? I am so tired of spending my late evenings in the kitchen, but I HATE sandwitches!

My Mom and Dad taught me how to cook at an early age, I would say around 11 or 12. Fried oysters, bacon and eggs, cornbread, baked grilled cheese and fried chicken were just a few of the first recipes I learned (I'm from the South, can you tell?) Their early teachings cultivated a love of food and...
