Jeeter's right. You really need to get theeself a crockpot and learn to use it. It's truly a lifesaver.

It's also good to learn basic, staple dishes that can be expanded and improvised on. Cooking is as much about intuition and practice than anything else. Recipes are great as a base, but after awhile you'll learn what does and doesn't work, what you can change, what can be omitted, etc. You'll also learn to work with the ingredients you have. Sometimes the best meals are the ones where I assemble random ingredients that need using up.

It's also important to learn good knife skills. That starts with having decent knives. I love my santoku knife. I got it 70% off at Canadian Tire, for around $30. It sharpens well, and because it's not flexible like some bigger knives it powers through pretty much everything. My dad complains that things like stir fry take too long, but that's because he has terrible knife skills. I can prep a stir fry in less than 10 minutes, and then cook it in 10. The noodles or rice with it usually takes longer than that!


Here's one good for a side dish. We often have "veggies and dip" as a side dish. Chop up your favourite veggies (juicy red peppers, broccoli florets, carrot sticks, celery sticks, mushrooms, cucumbers, snap peas, grape tomatoes, or whatever else you find appealing), and then whip up this easy dip. Let everyone take some veggies and a big scoop of dip on their plates (licking the plate optional).

Dilly Dip

1 cup sour cream (can use a thick-set yogurt instead)
2-3 tbsp buttermilk (recommended) or regular milk (works in a pinch), to thin to desired consistency
1 tbsp dried dill (or a handful of chopped fresh baby dill if you have)
1 tsp dried parsley (or sub fresh)
2 tsp onion powder
salt to taste

Mix well. Thin to desired consistency.
