I LOVE Pinterest. I get all kinds of ideas from that site and many of them are actually pretty easy! I also use this site...

You type in the items you have in your fridge/freezer/pantry and it pulls up recipes using the items you type in. It's great!

Depends on what your family likes. I watch and log on to food channel network often. There are tons of ideas. Personally, I start by going to the grocery store and finding local items on sale. For example, if chicken or a certain vegetable is affordable and in abundance then I find a recipe for those ingredients. The last recipe I experimented with that was a big hit was Paula Deen's Gumbo http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula... Since the weather is getting nicer, you could try grilling more often to save you time and eat healthier. Other easy meals include buying a rotissery chicken, tostada shells and veggies/cheese - tostada night.

I have the same problem.....only thing is I only really eat things that are like stir fryed.....I dont bake (I'm always afraid it's undercooked and therefore don't do it).....I only cook for my 2 kids and myself because my husband works nights so sleeps through dinner......& my 7 month old doesn't eat food yet.....so I take the easy way out and heat up things for them to eat.....I need to stop that!! I have to try pinterest never thought about it lol

I hope you found some new ideas :)

I have been meaning to try a new recipe with my family every week. It hasn't happened yet, but I plan on doing it! I look through cookbooks, magazines, I steal recipes from my friends. I have a cookbook that is empty on the inside and you add your own recipes so that it's not full of a bunch of stuff that my family will never eat. I also love Pinterest. There are TONS of ideas on there.
