Calling all Chefs

Okay, all my culinary friends out there...I am embarking on a challenge. In an effort to cook more, I would like to collect recipes from all of you. Not just any recipes, though...

Send me your favorite recipes that do not require any fancy ingredients. I'm a very basic girl. I require simple instructions and no frou-frou fixin's. If you could keep the cost low too-all the better!

As I make each meal (probably 1 every week or so) I will blog about it to tell you how it went. This could get really interesting.

Not exactly Julie & Julia, but close. However, there will be NO boning a duck here...

That's it! I'm excited to see what comes my way!!


  1. Jumbalia (spelled wrong, LOL)

    2 packages of Knorr Mexican rice. Follow the directions for cooking that are on the package.

    1 cup of white rice cooked in the microwave

    1 package sweet itallian sausage

    1 can of corn (or you can use about a cup of frozen corn)

    1 can of black beans

    Chili powder
    Hot sauce (optional)

    Cook the knorr rice as the package calls for, cook the 1 cup of rice with 1 cup of water for 6min in the microwave. In frying pan add a little bit of olive oil (or vegi oil), thawed italian sausage and can of corn and black beans. Cook until sausage is no longer pink on the inside. (I cut my sausage up to bite size pieces after it is cooked because it is easier to cut and easier to eat that way) Mix all of the ingredients together into one big pot ( I cook my knorr rice in the biggest pot I have and then just add everything in there). Add chili powder and hot sauce to taste. (Takes about 30 minutes from start to finish)

  2. Yum. Can't wait to try this! =)
