  • We need some Dudecipes.

    For those of us dudes that don't know the difference between a frittata and a frito-lay. Simple stuff. Tasty stuff. Primally amazeballs stuff.

    My cooking skills go as far as placing dead animals on a fire then waiting until black smoke signals that it's time to chew some bunny rabbit charcoal. I'm the Alton Brown of flavoring burnt salmon.

    What are your quick, simple, but so good it'll make you have to change your shorts tasty recipes?

    Also, please hurry. My wife gets home in an hour and I want her to think I'm awesome.

    Aw! What a sweetie.
    I've got super simple recipes on my blog. Many are ready in an hour and require minimal prep. Meatloaf is probably one of the easiest. It just takes a while to cook.

    2 lbs ground beef
    eggs
    lots of herbs and spices (a good combination is oregano, garlic, parsley, pepper, and some parmesan if you got it. Parmesan makes great filler)
    Mix well. Form into loaf. Toss in oven in glass pan. Cook at 350F for 45 mins - 1 hr.
    You can put strips of bacon over the top prior to cooking if you wish, and some tomato sauce too

    I bet there's several recipes on there you could pull off (waldorf salad, bruschetta chicken, bacon-wrapped scallops, etc)

      Omelets are always good.

      I like to throw ground beef in a pan, cook it with a bunch of cumin, chili powder, salt, garlic, and cayenne

      While that cooks slowly, turn on the deep fryer. Cut some plantains into 1" long chunks. Fry them a little. Take them out, smash them, fry them again until they're crispy chips (these are called tostones). Salt them.

      Toss the meat in a bowl. Put the bowl in the middle of the plate and put the tostones on the perimeter of the plate.

      Serve with guacamole and/or salsa and/or sour cream. These are all available ready-made and preservative free in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.

      Kills the GF's mexican jones every time. I usually grab a spoon after the first few tostones. Bastards are starchy.

        That's actually the exact opposite of what I'm looking for. Granted on slow days when I have few clients and plenty of time to prep/cook I'm down to be extravagant. But on normal days, when the hunger kicks in, I'm lucky to just get home and down a still-frozen chicken before I eat my shoes in the car.

          A frittata is an open faced omelette which has the ingredients mixed in as opposed to set on top. It is also flipped instead of folded.
          A frito lay is a demonic organism which sheds its skin and sells the rancid skin chips to humans.

          Also your wife will think anything that you cook is amazing as long as you do the dishes.
          In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

            Frittatas are so easy to make (and the wifey will be super impressed). Chop up some bacon and toss in a pan, have it render out some of the deliciousness over low heat. Meanwhile, chop up some veggies-- bell pepper, green onion, and mushrooms usually make an appearance in my frittata. Cook veggies in bacon fat with bacon over medium heat. Meanwhile, beat up a dozen (12) eggs with cream or coconut milk and a little pepper & tarragon. Pour into pan with bacon & veggies. Allow to sit on burner until the eggs start solidifying. When that happens, open your oven and throw under the broiler for about 8 mins. Carefully pull out, cut like a pie, and serve with salsa and other favorite fixins (homemade guacamole, cheese, etc)
            It's perfect to pull together on a Saturday morning. Make a point to get up early (before the wife) and cook it. See if it doesn't get you some serious attention

              My wife loves my caveman stirfry. 2lbs of ground beef. 1 big onion. Some garlic and whatever else I feel like throwing in. Usually orange and red peppers, some mushrooms and half a stick of butter. But here's the kicker, stem and half about 10 Brussels sprouts, let it all cook in 1 pan for 8 or 10 mins on med. Some carrots, cauliflower and broccoli always work good. If you have some bacon that will only make it better.

              I Don't mean to crow, but my better half will ALWAYS reward me when I make caveman stirfry. Wink, Wink!

              She loves Brussel sprouts!

                  +1 to housework. I've been trying to lean out and get ripped for her. Who knew she only wanted me to run the vac and clean the bathroom.
                  A good meal only greases the wheels! ( if you want to call it the wheels)

                  Women are a complex machine!

                    I'm actually banned from doing the dishes. I tend to break more than I put away. Ever seen a bear try to open a jar of mayo? It's like that only angrier... and no mayo.

                      Yes! My boyfriend does the dishes (I cook everything but steak) and I will NEVER leave him, short of a restraining order, and even then I'm not really sure.

                        Dudecipes are on my blog. The most difficult ones have been the Indian meals, ie. butter chicken and curried lamb. Everything else is stupid easy and delish.

                        Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                              I don't think there are any divine recipes. Just work with your ingredients and figure it out. Cook the stuff that has to be cooked, and don't cook the stuff that shouldn't be cooked. It sounds like you already know what to do.
