  • Depends on what kinds of foods you like.....I like using fresh veggies and make a salad or stir-fry....if I make a stir-fry it is with some sort of meat, and served with brown rice...

  • lol i of my fav receipies is Mayonaaise chicken.....soo easy! Sounds weird I know, but I promise your family will love it. Preheat oven to 425, take chicken breasts, and dab them with dry paper towel to get moisture off, then spread mayo on them, sprinkle seasoning salt lightly over them, and top with dry parmesean cheese....then top with tiny slivers of butter.....bake uncovered for 35 min.....YUM!!!

  • Here's one:
    1pkg hot dogs
    cheese shredded and sliced
    9x13 casserole dish

    Measure 2-2 1/2 cups of rice and cook. Slice hot dogs lengthwise, but not all the way through. Cut cheese into 1/8 inch sticks and stuff into hot dogs, ends will stick over a little bit. When the rice is done lightly pack evenly into pan. Place cheese stuffed hot dogs on bed of rice, evenly spaced. Cover with desired amount of shredded cheese. Bake in oven at 350 for an hour or 375 for about 45 minutes. Until cheese is melted and bubble and the hot dogs may be attempting to arch backwards.

  • It would help if we knew what "the same old dinners" were - what might be something special to someone else might be one of your ordinary dinners. What do you normally cook that you want to replace?
