How do I make supper more exciting?? I know that while my hubby is on the road I am just cooking for me and 2 kids, but we still get bored and have been eating out a lot because there is just nothing to cook that is good.

You can visit your friends's and ask for recipes of novel dishes. And you can download cooking book and search some recipes interest you. Try to change your way of cooking somewhat and there are no definite way of cooking. Try to change and there will be wonderful dishes.

I have been cooking for over 50 years and I was a professional cook for 30 of those years, and I do not remember ever being bored. but I can understand how some might be. Things you might try is to duplicate or create your own recipes. I have found that cooking from scratch not only saves you tons of money it is far more healthy, soups stews and chili are wonderful when home make because they contain what you want in them, and it doesn't have to be beef stew it can be the whole meat isle to choose from as well there are great vegetarian stews. Soups are best when you clean out the fridge and fill up the soup pot , you can start with a tin of cheap soup and put in vegetables, pasta or rice , you are only limited by your imagination. As well meat loaf, or meat balls, are simple to make. Get out a cook book , if you do not own one go borrow one from the library, you will have hundreds to choose from my favourite is 5 ingredient cook books . simple quick and good tasting. At least give it a try, you may never know until you do and have several favourites soon.

I cook for myself, and I am bored also. What I do now is try a different recipe weekly that has help. I like recipes from Kraft. You might want to try kraft.com. They have some great recipes and they are easy to make.

yep, try some "foreign" food. you will find loads of recipes on the internet for all kinds of exotic dishes. good start: chicken filet with chocolat sauce (be generous with chili powder and cream so it is not tooo chocolaty) best served with rice. and for example fried mushrooms. delicious.
