Just wondering if anyone else finds cooking a scary task? I'm pretty good at it when I really try, but I am always in a rush and looking for great, quick, non-challenging recipes (although I am going to get out of my comfort zone and try Effie's Greek macaroni looking dish at least once ) Here are a few tried and true delicious recipes that even the worst cook can't screw up. Please contribute some of your own.
Mississippi Pot Roast (as a whole, I HATE roast, but this is so delicious)
1 package of ranch
1 package of au jus gravy
1 stick of butter
Put in crock pot on low and cover for 6 hours. I serve over mashed potatoes and left overs make great sandwiches. It has a pulled pork texture. Some people double the flavor packets, but that's a little too much sodium for my taste.
1 graham cracker crust (some use chocolate...too much for me)
1 jar (13 oz, I think) of nutella
1 bar of cream cheese softened
1 tub (8 oz?) of whipped topping
Spread 1/3 of Nutella on crust. (I heat it so it will spread easier) mix remaining Nutella, whipped cream, and cream cheese together. Pour mixture on top and chill pie for 4 hours. This is VERY rich, so know your audience when making this one
Chicken and Noodles (this is so simple, but such a comfort food...kids love..it's almost like a lazy man's chicken and dumplings)
1 package of chicken thighs
2 boxes of chicken broth(or whatever fills it up)
1 can of cream of chicken
1 stick of butter
tThe biggest package of egg noodles they make
Pour the first four ingredients in a crock pot, cover, and turn on low for 6-8 hours. Chicken should almost dissolve into the broth. Put egg noodles in and turn on high for 45 minutes
None of these are exactly healthy, sorry, but they are quick and delicious, even for picky eaters. Anyone have any others? Please give them to me in the simplest terms imaginable. Imagine you are teaching a six year old child to cook.....
