1. Baked Potatoes

The awesome thing about potatoes is the many ways they can be cooked with. This recipe instructs you on how to make delicious bite-sized baked potatoes (and the best thing is that they’re super easy to make!!)

  • First get your ingredients of cheese, bacon, and 6-8 potatoes (depending on how many servings you want).
  • Cut your potatoes in half and peel away the skin
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes
  • Meanwhile, put your other ingredients in a bowl and mix it with sour cream.
  • When the potatoes are finished baking, scoop out the potato and put the fillings inside.

Because the potatoes are hard, you may need to bake it a second round. Therefore, spread some butter on the potatoes to avoid them becoming too hard and bake them a second time for 20 minutes. You may put tin foil to wrap the potatoes with, or you can just leave it bottom part unpeeled.

2. Creamy Mac 'n' Cheese

If you love pasta, then this recipe is perfect for you! It hardly takes up much prep time and pasta itself is easy to cook, so don’t worry about complications!

  • Prepare the macaroni by boiling it in a large pot and stirring it from time to time.
  • Taste it to test if its ready and place it aside in a bowl.
  • Set the oven to preheat 375 degrees.
  • After the pasta is cooked, sprinkle some bread crumbs on top to make it nice and crunchy. Then mix it with the cheese sauce and put it in the oven to bake for 30 minutes.
  • Stir together to mix the bread crumbs in before serving.

 3. Sloppy Joes

Chop up the beef into minced meat and slice the onions. Place them in the pan and stir fry until brown. Drain the excess oil and grease. After that you can add any additional ingredients you want and let it simmer for 30 minutes. Feel free to mix any sauce you may have in your kitchen. Take it out and pour it carefully onto the buns. Add some vegetables (lettuce, tomatoes, etc) to make it a full-fledged burger and there you go!

4. Taco Lettuce Wrap

This is sooo easy to make. Prepare 2 lettuce wraps and minced meat. Its your choice of meat  to cook pork, chicken, turkey, or whichever just happens to be in your fridge. Cook the meat in a large pan until it turns brown and add some chilli powder and garlic to season the taste. Add onions, pepper and tomato sauce and simmer it on the lowest heat for 20 minutes. Wash and dry the lettuce. Separate the meat equally and place in centre of the lettuce. Squeeze some mayonnaise sauce on top, wrap and enjoy!

5. Roasted Vegetables

If you guys want a healthy and quick dish, this is it! Choose three to four vegetables of your choice- mine would be carrots, broccoli, potatoes, and parsnip. Chop them all up nicely and place them on a baking tray.  Cover them with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, or any other spices of your choice. Mix it up thoroughly and bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Perfect for a late-night snack if you’re aching for something to bite but wanting to avoid those calories!
