I am a really bad cook and I have a family that I have to cook for. I only know how to make a few things, so it seems like we are eating the same thing every week. Any one have any really good recipes that's really easy to make and that the kids would love?!

My family LOVES this recipe and it's easy as can be.
1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken
8ox Cream Cheese
2 Cans of Cream of Mushroom soup
1 package of dry Italian dressing

Boil the chicken for about 20 mins. Then take it and shred it with a fork.
Get a baking dish out and put everything in it. As you are shredding the chicken add it into the baking dish.
Stir it all together and bake it at 375 for 45mins. 15 mins before it's done take it out and stir it up more.
Serve over rice.

Good easy recipes. I just signed up to be a consultant. That is how I am learning how to cook for my family. My mom always said recipes are just a guideline. Add your own flair to the things you know how to cook. Good Luck.

The absolute favourite in our house is what my kids like to call sloppy tacos.
1 pound ground beef (or chicken or whatever you like)
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1 can tomato soup
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups of instant rice
nacho chips
whatever taco toppings you like

In a pan fry ground beef with taco seasoning until cooked. Add can of tomato soup, rice and water. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes or until moisture absorbed. Dish into bowls and top with whatever it is you like on your tacos (cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, sour cream, etc). Eat with the nacho chips.

The other thing I started doing in my house is have my husband and kids pick meals. I get groceries every two weeks that means they each get to pick two of the meals within that time. Two out of three of my kids are old enough to look through cook books or go online to different recipe sites but they have to provide me with a meal and ingredients. This cut way down on the constant "I don't like that" or "Why are we having this again???". It is working like a charm.

I hope some of this helps and good luck.

I go online and find all kinds of crock pot recipes, because I work all day and love coming home to a meal already done. Pot roast is a family favorite.
Put potatoes cut into chunks on the bottom.
Put carrots on the potatoes.
Cut up an onion and add to carrots and potatoes (optional)
Put pot roast on top of the veggies.
Pour 1 packet of dry onion soup mix (off brand works just as good)
Pour 1-2 cans (depends on size of roast) of cream of mushroom soup on top (off brand works just as good)
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

We don't get home until around 6 so ost of our crockpot meals cook longer, but everything is always so tender and yummy. Alexis, my 11 month old, LOVES the veggies from the crockpot. The meat is too stringy for her right now.

Iva,

We all have to start somewhere....try not to be so discouraged about your skills. It will get better! i introduced my girls to Kraft.com or Kraft.ca...they receive wonderful easy recipes that YOU can determine what level and what area you're looking for...ie., easy, kids, 30 minutes or less...budget wise....and then when you have the basics... experiment towards your families likes and dislikes!
You will soon be enjoying the experience!

Here is a really simple crockpot recipe that you can add whatever you and your family like to it. I served it over rice, but you can use totillas, rice, salad, potatoes, etc..

crock-pot salsa chicken AND twice baked potato ♥
(the chicken with it's "salsa" sauce may not look delectable, but it's one of my favorite delish meals so far)

salsa chicken:
4 medium chicken breasts - FROZEN
1 package of taco seasoning
1 cup of salsa
1 cup of sour cream
1 250ml can corn (optional)
1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
1/2 cup of chickpeas (optional)

(I just added corn this time)

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a crockpot. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the chicken. Pour the salsa to cover the chicken completely. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. When ready to serve, remove the chicken from crockpot, stir sour cream into salsa. Add in optional ingredients as desired. Return chicken to crockpot and allow 5-10 minutes to heat through. Serve with rice or with salad and tortilla chips. (Makes 4 servings). I served this with twice baked potato! :)

The best cook book for "simple" cooks is the 4 Ingredient Cookbook series! I love these books. All the recipes are simple and seriously only 4 ingredients! I strongly suggest starting ther! I am a good cook, but I am a very busy single mom of a 10 year old girl and an 8 year old boy with autism. I dont always have the time or money to cook big fancy meals, but I do want to cook good meals FAST! Hope this book helps you!

I know a lot of Moms have given you suggestions on buying cook books but don't forget your local library. If your kids are small take them to story time and you have half hour to hour to look around. Check them out for 28 days and then get more.

I have a slow cooker and it is great. I use it quite a bit. There are many things that you can make. My favorite is Mushroom Chicken and noodles. Put Chicken in slow cooker and a can of Mushroom soup (can also use Cream of Chicken). Let that cook all day. When ready, remove the chicken, bring the 'soup' to a boil, and then add egg noodles. Cook until tender. Fix whatever vegetable you would like. Maybe some rolls or biscuits also.
There are a lot of recipes for slow cookers. They are fantastic and easy for busy families.

When you are trying new recipes, do not let your children negative opinions hurt your confidence. Make out your meals according to the food pyramid and write the menus down and post them on the refrigerator. I know it is important to please your children but you have opinions too so have fun and relax. The more confident you become the more love will show through your cooking. When you have a flop, laugh it off.

Start with a frying pan, add olive oil and 2teaspoons of minced garlic, sauté on low, theres nothing like the wonderful scent of sautéing garlic to encourage you to go on. Add chicken or beef or pork strips, a can of sliced mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, stir and serve over rice. Don't know how to make rice? Buy a pint from the local Chinese takeout for $1. Make a salad, use your imagination, add sliced almonds, dried cranberries, olives. You can do it, you have to believe you can.

Hiya Iva,

While Im not knocking peoples choices I was actually surprised at how many people would make something with potato chips for a family... Doesnt seem the healthiest option. I always try to opt for stuff with lots of veggies and meat in it. This is the reason I LOVE my slow cooker. You can put a roast on ( even if it is frozen solid) first thing in the morning, and let it cook all day on a high heat setting, with either a cup and a half water or wine, or a mix of the two and it comes out beautifully. You should always season with garlic and salt and pepper, these spices/seasonings should be a staple, but other nice ones include oregano and rosemary ( oregano for beefs and rosemary for chicken pork can use either one) you can either throw in some chopped potato and carrot into the pot a few hours before dinner, or do them seperately on the stove ( especially if you want mash potatoes) you can even make a nice gravy from the liquid left over in the slowcooker. Also I found this website for cheap meal ideas, it even calculates how much it will cost per serving, if youre on a really tight budget http://www.cheapcooking.com/
oh yeah and for those veggies that kids arent really into (aka broccoli, cauliflower parsnips etc) you can always make a quick and easy cheese sauce. Shred about 1/2 cup cheese ( the sharper the better but any cheese will work) Melt a reasonable amount of butter (1/4-1/2 cup) in a sauce pan, mix in about 1 cup milk and salt to taste, mix about 2 tbsp of cornflour or if you dont have it regular flour works too ( you just have to watch that it completely dissolves) into 1/4-1/2 cup COLD milk, slowly stir that into lightly boiling milk/butter mix, keep an eye on it so it doesnt thicken too much or too quickly and keep stirring, ( i always find a metal wire whisk works best for me) add in cheese and stir stir stir until it melts through and pour over top of cooked veggies ... its delish! anyhow hope this helps :)

One thing you could make is homemade pizza. Buy the pizza dough and toppings that everyone likes and let everyone participate in making the pizza. You can make a breakfast pizza with the dough and add eggs, cheese and sausage or regular pizza with meat cheese and other favorite toppings. You can buy smaller pizza rounds for individual pizzas.

Here is another idea, when my kids were little. every weekend I use to have pizza night on Fridays or Saturdays. they were able to make their own personal pizza. Here is a good recipe for pizza crust. i have a standing mixer so it is easy. But if u don't and you have a bread machine u could mix it in that , just don't cook it. or u can knead it by hand and it wont take but ten minutes. depending on how thick your kids like their crust. This should make 4 to 5- 8 inches pizza crusts.
use fast rising yeast
3 cups flour, 1 cup warm water, 2 table spoons yeast , 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste) 1 Tablespoon olive oil (or any fat) mix all together. the dough should feel "silky" not sticky. If it is sticky, add more flour. let rise about 30 minutes. punch down. section off balls of dough and let the kids press into a greased 8 inch cake pan. or whatever pan u have about that size. pie tins work also. let it rise about 10 to 15 minutes each. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F. let them top their pizza with whatever they like ; bake about 15 minutes in a 400 degree F oven. your done. You had QT with kids and they feel proud they "made" dinner :)

Hi Iva, here is a real simple recipe. It is just my hubby at home now but it works for any size family.

Stir fry
This will serve 4-6 people.
Ingredients:
2 lbs meat
2 T olive oil, or margarine
2 bags frozen California blend veggies (any brand) we use Kroger brand. they are usually $1 a bag
1 bag stir fry Veggies
1/3 cup Teriyaki sauce
garlic powder ,salt, pepper to taste

Slice meat very thin, (it is easier if the meat is particularly frozen, u can get it very thin, which will make the beef very tender)
In a very large skillet or wok, heat oil until, just before smoke on Med high heat. Add meat. Let cook until half cooked. Add seasonings and all the veggies, let cook about 5 minutes or at least heated threw if u like "crunchy" veggies. Add Teriyaki sauce simmer 2 minutes and your done. A one pan one dish meal. You add or delet veggies to your family's tastes. Some times we just have beef and brocclie. you can serve it over rice or noodles also.

This is the link to the pizza crust recipe that I use. I think it's really easy. Then you can top it with whatever toppings your family likes. Tonight I just buttered it, sprinkled it with garlic, oregano and cheese. It was garlic cheese bread to go with spaghetti.

Cooking is not hard you just have not done it enough to know taste and smells and how to put them together. I am about to become a distributor for Homemade Gourmet it is a big help to me. They make it very easy to get it right and my kids love it!

If you can send me an email jonesiegal@gmail.com I can get you some of my easy recipes and send you some info if you want.

I steam frozen veggies because they taste more fresh and have better flavor than can. I use brown rice and pasta but have just figured out how to make brown rice taste good. I make a killer spaghetti sauce, a wonderful Lasagna, an excellent roast, a very good Stir Fry. If you can send me what you already know how to make then I will be able to see how to help you supplement. I also need to know how many you are cooking for.

I prep my meals on the weekend, It only takes a very small amount of time, I put the ingredients in bags label and put them in the freezer. I pull one out each night to thaw in the refrigerator for dinner the next day. Then it is all about the sides. My meal planning has become a breeze. I am happy to share any helpful hints I can.

We have a local community college that offers a bunch of non credit classes. You might look into a local community college and see if they offer cooking classes. Also ask your friends for recipes to try. If you are on Facebook post a status and ask everyone to submit their favorite recipe. And don't feel bad about asking your husband to cook (if he can). I know of quite a few families where the husband is the main cook. My maternal grandparents included.

Garlic Mashed Potato n Hamburg Bake: In casserole dish combine 1/2 can cream mushroom soup, 1 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk. Cook n brown 1 pound hamburg. While hamburg cooking make 2 cups mashed potatoes. Mash using remaining cream mushroom soup, 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder. Once hamburg is browned, drain and mix into casserole dish stirring to coat well. Spread 1 can mixed veggies over meat mixture.

Hamburg can make soooo many different dinners, ie: meatloaf, hamburgers, tacos, casseroles, soups, chili, goulosh, burritos, lasagna and the list goes on!

my favorite recipe is, what my family calls, Macaroni and Cheeseburger. It's Kraft's Mac and Cheese dinner with about 3lbs of scrambled hamburger and onions. While boiling the pasta for the Mac and cheese, I heat about 2 tsps of oil in a frying pan. Add half a cup of diced onion (you can skip this if your family doesn't like onion) and 1 tsp of garlic (Add the garlic when the onion has turned brown. Watch the garlic closely, it burns quick, if this happens you will have to start over). After the garlic and onions are combined, add the 3lbs of hamburger. By now your pasta should be done, drain and mix with cheese. Add the hamburger mixture. Heat a vegtable or add mushrooms to the mixture and dinner is done. If you would like more quick recipes, send me an email. I cook every night of the week except Saturday and I am rarely in the kitchen for longer than 30 mins.

My kids favorite is when I buy hotdogs and cresent rolls. They get to roll up the hotdogs in the "blanket" and then they bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes at 425. We then make a salad to go along with it.

My husband and I joke that when we first moved in together I used to burn water LOL

get chicken ..whatever is your favorite ..we prefer chicken breast and then I slice it into thin strips

you can put veggies in the pan after you cook the chicken ..with a little olive oil (we like onions, zucchini, red peppers, yellow peppers) use whatever you have in the fridge for veggies
once everything is tender add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup

serve with rice or potatoes YUM!

Join dinnersmadeeasy.com or Betty Crocker.com and there are some great easy recipes. My favorite recipe is juicy chicken. Ingredients: chicken breasts, mayonnaise and bread crumbs. Directions: Heat your oven to 350 degrees. If you have a meat tenderizer, tenderize the chicken, spread mayonaise on each chicken breast and then dip each piece in bread crumbs. Put the chicken in a baking dish and bake the chicken from 20-25 minutes. Its delicious!

I feel you, when i had my first child i was just turning 19 and was clueless in the kitchen..I am still not that into cooking but i mange..Things that i make that are easy are: Pastas, lasagna, homemade pizza, casseroles, tacos, mashed potatoes with meat and veggies, soups, hot sandwiches (turkey, etc)...Meals do not have to be elaborate to be healthy and good, use what you have on hand and get a little creative..Also, make large batches and freeze portions so if you are pressed for time or don't know what to make you can just reheat some leftovers...You don't need to go out and buy a bunch of cookbooks to learn to cook, trust me i tried this and now they are all full of dust and still haven't been read...Especially if you have the internet, there are millions of recipes online, just Google easy dinners, etc...Best of luck..And honestly as far as lunches go, the simplest things can still be a nutritional lunch..A good old PB & J sammy on whole wheat with a glass of milk and a banana is a well rounded and nutritional lunch for a child, and something they will actually eat!! Don't stress yourself out!

Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks - . Place the chicken in a large baking dish. Mix together about 1/2 cup soy sauce and a few tablespoons of honey (quantity will depend on how many you are cooking for). Drizzle this sauce over the top of the chicken, and bake for about 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Serve with a nice big salad of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and whatever else you like. Very easy and the kids love it.

Soups are generally very easy to make.
My kids love chicken and sweet corn soup. This is very similar to the one I make, and I usually add a handful of frozen peas for some extra vegies and serve with some bread rolls:
http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/16901/ch...

Or you can make a super easy vegetable soup by combining the following in a large pot:
1 kg packet frozen vegies
1 cup dry soup mix (ie dried peas, barley & lentils)
1 onion, diced
10-12 cups water
4-5 tsp of chicken stock OR bacon bones
Bring to simmer and cook for several hours until the soup mix has softened.

Remeber the best way to get better at cooking is to just experiment and try new things. Maybe try to do one new recipe each week so after a few months you will have a dozen new recipes that you are able to make!
