Does anyone have a go-to recipe?

    When I was in university I made my own creation: Poor Man’s Tuna Casserole. I’m a terrible and lazy chef.

    Step 1: Make a batch of Mac-n-Cheese (KD or offbrand KD if you’re Canadian).

    Step 2: Add a can of tuna.

    Bon appetit!

    • Mac and cheese is such a great base for meals! We do the same, and sometimes with burger. We often add peas to the tuna version, and onion to the burger version.

      This is a really great suggestion! Once you have the mac & cheese, you can create a bunch of different dishes!

      Also, my wife can’t have dairy, and we found a fantastic vegan mac & cheese by a company called Daiya. In our opinion, they’ve got the best-tasting dairy substitutes. They have a vegan cheddar cheese sauce and an alfredo sauce that’s really good, and also make standard mac & cheese boxes for quick-and-easy.

      Americans tend to think if mac & cheese as unhealthy comfort food, but it’s a great basis for a variety of dishes.

      +1 on your suggestion!

    A one pot pasta and lentils. In a pot caramelize onion and bell pepper, add lentils and tomato sauce, then after boiling them add the pasta.

    My go to recipe is a screw driver. One packet of orange tang, one pint vodka, one cup of water. Shake well. Chill before serving.

      Would that go well with orange cake?

    • Food: French onion soup
    • Dessert: Fruitcake
    • Cocktail: Cubata (my favourite) or Mojito (my friends’ favourite)
  • The one recipe I make, more than any other, is bread. It’s fast, simple, and aside from being a nearly every-morning staple, it forms the basis for many if our lunches. I make this once a week, throughout the year, and I doubt we make any other single, non-trivial recipe more frequently.

    Unless “martini” is a recipe.

    Getting good at making a simple pasta or rice can be super useful. I like making a Mexican bowl with beans, capsicum, beef mince, garlic and whatever else and then either having it with rice or corn chips etc
