Everyone in my house is used to being waited on hand and foot and my mother deserves a break. Basically, I would like to start cooking and I have no clue where to start. What I am looking for is some simple recipes I can use to cook for about 4-5 people and something inexpensive, considering I would be the one buying everything.
If none of that made sense sorry I'm kinda rushing to get to work.
*needs simple ideas
Try roasting beef tomatoes.
Beef tomatoes, cut in half
drizzle olive oil, chopped garlic & basil over
roast for 40 mins Gas mark 6
mix 1 1/3rd balsamic vinegar with 2 3rds olive oil...shake vigorously & drizzle over the tomatoes, when cooked.
serve with French crusty bread...pulled apart
it's only 2 main ingredients but is incredibly tasty
& don't worry about there not being any measures for the garlic or basil etc it won't matter, I change this recipe every week, depending on how much basil etc is in the kitchen
you could always whizz this up when cooked & add to plain spaghetti
