Making Breakfast in Bed

What is your favorite yummy thing to make for breakfast in bed? I have eggs, bread for toast, a good amount of spices, and most other options. I need recipes, but nothing involving raw food or rare ingredients.

How to eat together, at home, with two different households?

My significant other and I don't live together, and haven't yet come up with a practical or efficient way to cook and eat a healthful dinner together on weeknights when we're both busy during the day and don't get home until late. Looking for suggestions from other couples in the same situation who have figured out tricks, systems, routines, or plans that will help us streamline our dinnertime process. [more inside]

In search of... some meal plans.

I used to be a pretty good cook and I enjoyed cooking, but haven’t done much of it in the last few years for various reasons. Now, I have an awesome boyfriend who makes me great food, and I want to do the same for him. What I need are some ideas for full meals—not just single recipes but main and sides, etc., and specific recipes or links to specific recipes to accompany them. [more inside]

Meal delivery service for grieving family

One of my co-workers has lost both parents within 3 months of each other. We are not super super close, and so far she hasn't accepted my offers of specific, practical things I can do to help (watching her kids, going to grocery store. etc.). I'd like to make her life a little easier anyway, so I was thinking about some kind of meal delivery service so she wouldn't need to cook for a little bit. [more inside]

It's not what I eat, but rather how I eat it.

I've just returned from an awesome, super-fun vacation during which I didn't give as much thought to the food I ate. I noticed that while the specific foods I ate were less "healthy," my eating patterns were far healthier, almost as if being less concerned about how "healthy" something was granted me a freedom that translated into a better sense of wellbeing. This trip provided me a window into "how things could be" with respect to eating patterns. I would like to take what I can from that to improve my habits. Details inside. [more inside]

Fast food/QSR-filter: Who typically gets their meal comped? And why?

Recommendations for an online meal planner?

I need to be better about managing my grocery budget and streamlining my time in the kitchen. I've just started poking around for options but I'm eager for hive mind recommendations. The main caveat is that I'm in Canada, which has ruled the promising foodonthetable.com. Something that allows you to cost meals fairly easily would be nice. Please pardon any typos--mobile AskMeing is a bit tricksy.

Cross-cultural meal times & frequency

Simple, tasty recipes for a nomad

For the next 8 months I'll be moving cities every 4 days or so and I'm doing a lot of couchsurfing. I like to prepare a meal for my hosts as a thank you and I'd like some suggestions for meal ideas. I can't travel with a fully stocked pantry, so meals that have few ingredients (preferably things readily available in South America, Europe, and Asia) are important.

Tasty no-fridge, no-cook shelf stable meals

In the past few months I have found two different brands of shelf-stable meals that I love: GoPicnic and St. Dalfour's Gourmet on the Go. The key things for me are: these meals don't require refrigeration, they don't require cooking, they taste good, they're usually less than 400 calories per container, and they are both healthier and cheaper than the fast food near my school's campus. Do you know of any other brands like this? I didn't even know these existed until earlier this year, and googling keeps getting me things that require cooking and/or are not tasty.

What are some meals that are nearly all fruits & vegetables?

The other day I made a meal that was nearly all vegetables -- sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus, and an apple, arugula, and feta salad. It was a great meal and I didn't even realize until I was eating it that it was basically all vegetables, rather than my normal routine of basing a meal around a starch (although the sweet potato does have a lot of carbs). I'm looking for more full-meal ideas where vegetables make up a lion's share of the meal. [more inside]

Freezable shortcrust pastry recipes?

For some reason, I have 4 packets of shortcrust pastry in my freezer taking up what little room I have. Can you a) recommend delicious recipes that best make use of this instead of say, puff pastry, and b) also if possible include recipes that freeze well as I'm about to have a newborn and would like to clear this space in my freezer and fill it with meals we can just defrost and cook/eat once the baby comes. Could the recipe say at what point to freeze (before or after cooking). Savoury preferred but dessert ok in a pinch. Extra points if they're toddler friendly. Even if they can't be frozen, anything that uses it up will be appreciated.

How to use up peanut butter?

I have a bunch of peanut butter that I need to use up, but I'm running out of ideas. I would particularly appreciate recipe ideas that I can use in meals, though all I can ever really think of is perhaps Thai-style chicken/noodles, or PB&J sandwiches, or fruit with peanut butter dip. I know there's also stuff like peanut butter cookies and other baking goodies, but I'm trying to avoid sugar-bombing my diet too badly. Please help me with ideas!

Delicious "no-cook" dishes in under 30 min?

I recently came across this awesomeness of a Daal recipe. It blew me away, not only with its amazing flavor, but the fact that you actually don't have to cook. I mean you chop one onion, dump all the ingredients in and less than 30 minutes later, you have an amazing meal. Which immediately made me wonder, are there any other awesomely tasty recipes out there which I could add to my repertoire of fast and easy?

Help me eat a balanced meal

I saw a nutritionist and she recommended for lunch and dinner I make sure that 50% of my meal be vegetables, 25% lean protein, and 25% a starch of whole grains with only a minimal amount of dressing or oil for cooking. Beans are great, but count as a starch and a protein. The vegetables can really be any vegetable except potatoes (too starchy). So far I've been (1) eating salads with chicken or pork and (2) vegetable fajitas with whole wheat tortillas and beans (maybe too starchy because it counts as two starches, but I like it). Any other ideas for these eating parameters? I need suggestions for things that I can cook at home very quickly (preparation and cooling 20 minutes or less really don't have a lot of time) and things that I can order in restaurants. Thanks!!!!
