How on earth can you figure out what to eat each and every day? When I was single the best thing I used to do is to call for delivery, but now, since I got married, I have to cook as much as I can. And because I know only few recipes, I just can't figure out what to cook every day. I go to lots of websites and search for new recipes. I think Albert Einstein wrote them. They are so complicated. So what do you do? Help ... pleeeeeeease !!!

[i]Hi angel, LOL! I can relate to that since I am not a good cook! My hubby cooks most of the time for dinner. I have a very limited recipe also. I admire those women like my Mom who can just prepare great meal each day! I guess we need to have a list for variety of recipe we need to prepare, I hope someone can share to you their ideas! [/i]

True ... my mom is great ... she never asked us or my father about what would we like to have for lunch or dinner. Although she was a school teacher. My husband is really really a bad cook. Believe me ... I tried :s I think it's a good thing doing a list of the week recipes ... I hope it works.

Sometimes its hard. When I do my shopping I try to plan meals for the weak , but my plans don't always work . There is a great website for all types of recipies allrecipes.com is wonderful! They have simple to hard recipes. People also write in about each recipe to let everyone know how it turned out and how they can make it different . They rate the recipes . I have used it alot , and everyone I've made has turned out real good .

I do not cook yet and neither does my fiance. My fiance is also very picky so the things I do cook will basically be a number of things that can be counted by the fingers and maybe the toes! lol! I would suggest, if you can not find recipes that are easy to read, to try and alter the food you do know how to make, so it will be original! lol! Add cheese, don't add cheese, buy a different kind of bun, bread, roll, or chop the chicken, steak, or pork up differently! I hope that this helps! http://www.idea-queen.com/recipes-for-mom.html Here is also a link for RECIPES that are easy and is NOT A REFERRAL link.

That is such a great piece of advise ... I never thought about it like that before ... why not give it a try ... Yesterday I made the same spaghetti that I'm used to do it all the time, but instead of adding minced beef I added chicken. Next time I'll do it with chicken but instead of tomato sauce I'll add white sauce ... delicious ... thanks

Hi ! Try allrecipes.com I use it alot and have always been happy with everything I've made from that website . It's great! They let you rate the recipes and people will tell if the recipe turned out good or bad . I only try recipes that have 5 stars ! that way you know it's got to be pretty good . I've told my daughter about the website and she is now trying to learn how to cook using it .. Good luck !!
