    Hi, I use cooks.com, or I type recipes – eating well for ideas a lot. You will be able to find some ideas that don’t use a lot of ingredients and some things that you might like to try. Start out simple so as not to get discouraged. Good luck! You couldn’t have picked a better time to start to change your ways. Are there any cooking classes in your area?

    Salads are really easy, and so are stir frys, start by getting veggies that you like. chop them really well. Bite sized is important, unless you want to choke. Now for a good(meal) salad, mix together with small pieces of lunch meat or hot dogs(if you like them cold). Or, for a stir fry, mix with chopped pieces of chicken or fish( which you have boiled for a half hour befor), and fry untill the chicken is fully cooked. I also suggest learning t fry/bake meats… then experiment with sauces on them… good luck! =D

    Cook’s Tip: A simple way to adjust the consistency of pasta sauce that is too thick is to remove about 1 cup of pasta cooking water using the Nylon Ladle before draining the pasta. Stir a small amount into the sauce as needed.

    Smoked Provolone cheese is smoked over applewood for a full-bodied, smoky flavor. Plain Provolone cheese can be substituted for the smoked Provolone cheese, if desired.

    Pasta with Spinach and Tuna
    – Pasta, frozen spinach, 1 large bottle of pasta sauce and 2 cans of tuna can make you about 4-5 meals. Add in chopped garlic for better taste.

    Sandwhiches
    – Bread and basically anything you like in it.

    Grill Fish and Mash
    – Grill the fish on a non-stick pan as opposed to fried which is unhealty. And replace chips with mashed potatos. Mixed bacon bits in the potato for extra flavour

    Breaded chicken Breast (good for sandwhiches, salads, meal with rice/chips)
    – Chicken breast, bread crumbs, egg, flour. Slice the chicken breast into half (so that its thinner), add salt, pepper and coat with flour. Dip in beaten egg and then coat with bread crumbs and bake.

    My hint of the night: I buy on sale when I can, and often cook enough for a family, then freeze it. Mince is the easiest: meatloaf, meatballs, crumbled mince to use in sauce.
    What I do is go to one of the recipe sites and look until I find something I like and then look for the easy recipe.
    A hint:
    If you don’t have something to put in, like mince garlic, or any garlic at all, I have noticed that it doesn’t muck things up too much to leave it out.
    I also live alone, like to eat well, and to some extent with a measure of health in my cooking.
    I hope this gives you a little encouragement.
