... and I want to do both at the same time. Where can I find recipes for food that - is geared towards beginners (not too much prep time, not too many ingredients) - has calorie counts per serving/weight - is not always red meat or grain-heavy - and doesn't require an oven? (I only have a microwave and two heating elements.) [more inside]
Are there any videos on YouTube similar to Great Depression Cooking, in that they feature completely amateur cooking? I mean people without great knife technique or whatever, just cooking regular meals in small regular kitchens like the rest of regulars, fearlessly and worrying not so much about presentation or perfection?
People who live with others but cook for yourself: What do you cook? How do you cook it? Requesting recipes and tips, please. [more inside]
Any cooking shows (preferably available on youtube, or in any case for free) that features some real-time cooking? I don't require sitting through four hours of braising footage, but I just want to have a reasonable sense of how much time other people put into prep and such, which means no mise-en-place chopped vegetables at the start of the thing.
