Making quick and easy meals requires you to be crazy and original!
If you're having trouble getting started, I recommend doing this. First, go to a section in the FAQ. Read the ingredient list and hints. Then, link to the example recipe(s). Compare the generic list of ingredients to the ones used in the recipe. Now, pretend you had a different set of ingredients. Don't worry about if it will taste like something classic like "lasagna" or "stuffed peppers". Instead, take ingredients you like and experiment!
Obviously, this page needs more recipes like the one above. Can you help? If so, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your recipe. I might use it as the latest example or I might just incorporate the ingredients into the FAQ. Either way, it'll make you famous... Really!
