I'm 25 and me and my roommate are just starting to cook on our own. Our add water and microwave days of college are over. Plus we like to have friends over sometimes, and ordering a pizza makes for a lame dinner party.
Basically this just feels like something we should be doing, it's fun to try new things and in general, it saves money!
Some things I always liked growing up:
• Big Mac 'N Cheese fan
• Anything with Cool Whip...
• Mom makes this breaded chicken that got baked...
• Love salads, been trying to broaden my horizon in terms of dressing
I also always struggle with whether to buy the brand names or the store labels. Does it make a difference?!?! What do you guys buy and why?
Anyway.... I'd love to hear your ideas. I'd love some new easy recipes, but I'm really curious about the art of grocery shopping too. Discount store? Upscale store?
Thanks in advance!! If your ideas are really good, I'll have you all over for dinner. ;)
