    So growing up I was blessed to have a mom that was an awesome cook. Sadly I'm growing up. Last year at school I was in the dorms and was on a meal plan, but this year I'm depending on myself to cook my own meals.

    I have a few recipes under my belt, but was wondering if there were some any quick and easy favorites you guys have to share. I'm trying to think HEALTHY here.

    Personally, I just cook really basic stuff that can be done in a skillet and a couple steamed veggies, beans, grilled lean meats (mostly chicken breast, some fish), and eggs done in various ways.

    But then again, I don't really like cooking and washing dishes. I just do it because the alternative (restaurants and frozen dinners) would get me fat again.

    Recipes are great, to an extent. If you you want a really great reference, get a copy of the Joy of Cooking or How to Cook Everything from the bookstore and enjoy reading and experimenting.

    Paul has a good point. Simple stuff. Learn how to use several cooking techniques for the same food item. Learn how to use spices and herbs and veggies for flavor.

    Fact is, I am not much of a recipe cook. It is so much easier not to be worrying about exactly how much of this and that.
