Yummy In My Tummy

in #cooking9 months ago (edited)

Since I started working full time as a stay at home mom, I've found a new love for all things domesticated! Haha….not really...well, kind of. I get REALLY happy when my husband comes home with new cleaning products. You see, at my last out of the house job, I was working shift work and I never had time for any of this. My life was chaos.


I also really enjoy cooking and baking! The problem is…I'm so new in this role of 'housewife' that I don't really have a lot of recipes. My husband was the one with the 9-5 so he did about 98% of all the cooking for this house in the past simply because I was never home during meal time. Plus he's a WAY better cook than I am….!!

I want to know if anyone has any recipes they'd like to share with me! Keeping in mind that I am a mom of 2 small kids and quick & effecient is what I like because I just don't have time to cook big giant gourmet meals. I find myself loving recipes where I can prep ahead of time (during naps) OR a meal where I can make lots and lots and freeze it for a later date. Although I'm open to trying anything at all!

Something you love, family tradition you're willing to share with the world, anything, send it my way.

I could google and I do, almost daily, for new ideas but I thought this might be a fun way to get to know you guys and try something new that comes with a personal recommendation.

So ….. go nuts in the comments. I can't promise I'll make them all but I'll try!

Here's one that I make often because I do love me some cheesecake!

Kraft Mini Cheesecake

1 cup graham crumbs 
3 Tbsp. butter, melted 
2 pkg. (250 g each) Brick Cream Cheese, softened.
1/2 cup sugar 
1 tsp. vanilla 
2 eggs

Step 1 - Heat oven to 350°F.
Step 2 - Mix graham crumbs and butter; press evenly into 12 paper-lined muffin cups.
Step 3 - Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
Step 4 - Spoon mixture over crust. Bake 20 to 25 min. or until centre is almost set. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate 3 hours.

You'll know the center is almost set when they only jiggle a little bit. It should never be runny. If they are cracking, get them out - they are starting to over cook.

When they are chilled and ready to serve, top with anything you like really. We use strawberries or our favorite - caramel sauce. They are super easy to make and a delicious treat. You can also freeze them for a later date :)

I hope you enjoy.

OK. Let the record show that I really like the swiffer duster, too. Remember, I once owned a cleaning service and I have a genuine Ostrich Feather Duster displayed in my living room as art. I'd be better served if I used it a little more often, though...

I love veggies stir fried. Quick and easy cause I cheat. I start with the meat (usually chicken, sometimes pork or beef) in oil in the appropriate pan over medium heat. I listlessly stir a couple of times then add frozen veggies and cover the pan for 10 minutes (on the timer so I don't forget). Remove the lid, raise the heat a bit, season and stir aggressively for a few minutes and serve. Seasonings are generally flexible depending on my mood. Enough soy sauce will cure any mistakes...

Call it 20 minutes with only 5 spent over the stove and 2 for prep (cut the meat into small pieces).

I LOVE stir fry. Thanks for this!

Looks delicious :) use tags like OCD, archon, and gems to have better votes on such a beautiful post :)

I can cook but I hate utensils and dishes afterwards.
Go with combination of Rice -chickpeas or rice kidney beans for quick meal. Though you need to soak chickpeas /kidney beans overnight.

Thank you. I love chickpeas. So good!

You may not know this about me but I am almost a chef. I have been cooking professionally for over 30 years. So tell me what kind of food you like and I may be able to give you lots of ideas.

I did not know that! That's so cool. I wish I was a better cook. I'm hoping I can improve. My family says its good but sometimes I think they've just gotten used to low standards haha

We're pretty simple with our meals and don't venture out of our food comfort zones too often. To be honest I didn't have any set food in mind so I'll have to think on this. I know who to ask next time I have a cooking question! :D Thanks Mike
