One of my favorite go tos:


Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy
Ingredients: 
2 lbs. Stew meat (I like using cubed roast) 
1 can cream of mushroom 
1 packet brown gravy mix 
1 packet dry onion soup mix 
1 small can mushrooms 
1 cup water
 
Directions: 
1. Place meat in slow cooker 
2. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over meat. 
3. Set to low and cook all day (8 to 9 hours). 
4. Serve over potatoes, noodles or rice and enjoy!

If I don't feel like cutting up the roast before hand, I'll shred it with some forks and make burritos instead.

Pasta e ceci (Pasta with chickpeas)


The preparation of this dish is similar to making risotto, but with small pasta instead of rice. For me, the most important and unique elements are the chickpeas, pecorino cheese, and the rosemary.

Ingredients:
-desired amount of small pasta (ex. orzo, ditalini, large pastina if available, otherwise macaroni will do)
-can of chickpeas (or dry chickpeas which have been sufficiently soaked)
-1 onion or shallot
-1 small red chili pepper
-package of passata di pomodoro (plain tomato puree/sauce)
-sprig of fresh rosemary
-red or white wine
-small block of pecorino romano or parmesan cheese (optional if you want a vegan version)
-large pot of vegetable stock
-olive oil

Directions:
1. Prepare ingredients- chop onion into fine pieces, chop small pieces of the chili pepper, rinse off canned chickpeas, cut about 10 thin slices of pecorino/parmesan

2. Set water for vegetable stock to boil (you may want to add more salt to it)

3. Make a soffrito- saute onion and pepper on medium/medium low heat in a deep pan. When it starts to simmer, add the desired amount of wine and let it evaporate

4. Add in the chickpeas before wine is completely evaporated, let them soften and crush them with wooden spoon or ladle

5. Add a generous amount of tomato puree, desired amount of rosemary leaves ripped from the stem, slices of cheese and stir

6. When the vegetable stock water is boiling, add dry pasta into the sauce, and start ladling in vegetable stock until pasta is covered,  keep adding stock so that it does not evaporate, until pasta is al dente or your desired consistency. Note: Some prefer this dish to be like soup, others want it to be less watery. I go for something in between. 

7. Turn off the heat and let it sit for about 5 mins 

8. Serve with extra pecorino

might be my favorite pasta Ever: this creamy pasta and tomato sauce recipe
original recipe link: https://www.thespruceeats.com/creamy-tomato-pasta-481963

Ingredients (including my substitutes for picky eaters lol)

-1 tablespoon unsalted butter
-2 tablespoons olive oil

-1 medium coarsely chopped onion (substitute with onion powder)
-1 (26-ounce) jar tomato pasta sauce, or homemade.
-3 tablespoons water
-1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained (I leave this out, I can't really do chunks)

-1 pound spaghetti (I prefer to use penne)
-1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

Steps:
Gather the ingredients, Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium
heat. Add the onion. Cook and stir until the onion is tender and just
starts to brown around the edges, about 5 to 6 minutes Add the pasta sauce to the onion mixture. Add the water to the empty
jar, close and shake to loosen the rest of the pasta sauce, and add to
the skillet along with the undrained tomatoes. Bring to a simmer,
stirring frequently, so the mixture doesn't burn on the bottom.
Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in the large pot of boiling water
according to the package directions until al dente. Test the pasta by
biting into it. If the pasta is firm but tender, it's done. A few minutes before the spaghetti is done, add the cream cheese to the pasta sauce.
Cook and stir, using a wire whisk, until the cheese melts and the sauce
is creamy. The cream cheese may not dissolve completely in the sauce
because the sauce is acidic, but that's OK. It will add the desired
creamy texture and flavor.
Drain the pasta and immediately add to the skillet with the sauce. Toss for a few minutes, then serve.

Zucchini carrot pancakes! Doesn’t need much but so delicious!


You’ll need:
  • 1-2 medium zucchini;
  • 2-3 medium sized carrots;
  • 2 garlic cloves;
  • Fresh dill;
  • 2 eggs;
  • Salt;
  • Lots of oil, preferably canola or sunflower oil since it’s cheaper.
Preparation:

Peel your carrots. Then cut off the stem and bottom of the zucchini (if the zucchinis have a hard skin the you’ll have to peel them too). Then grate the carrots and zucchinis on the grater. Then add a big tablespoon of salt and mix it in the veggies. Leave it to rest for 20-30 minutes so the water can separate.

After the time has passed, drain the liquid via your finest sifter (a flour sifter works rather well) and then with your hands press out the majority of the liquid in the veggies (NOT ALL OF IT because then your pancakes will be too dry). When that’s done, finely chop up your garlic and add to the drained veggies. Then chop up the dill and add it to the bowl. Add two eggs to the mix and mix it in until everything is combined. Add your flour bit by bit and stir it in until the mixture is resembling a pancake dough (don’t add too much flour because it has to help bind the veggies together, not overpower it).

Cooking:

Preheat the pan on medium high heat with the oil added. Don’t be stingy with the oil because otherwise the pancakes will stick to the pan. Add a spoon on each side of the pancake mix and fry both sides until darkish brown. 

Serve it with sour cream with dried basil sprinkled on it.

 I love making Shakshuka. It's a super simple North African dish that leaves plenty of room to add your own spin on the recipe. 

My favorite recipe come from Chef John at Food Wishes.

instead of linguini i use spaghetti noodles (not a fan of linguini)

i also throw in some dark soy sauce instead of just light soy sauce, parmesan cheese when mixing but pecorino romano cheese to serve, and orange olive oil when making the garlic oil.
