I need a recipe, i'm starving. I have hamburger thawed out and I want to make some kind of casserole or something, but the thing is, unfortunately I have no cheese so I need to make something that doesn't require cheese. (dammit, I love cheese) I have rice and pasta...not sure which one I want the meat with.

Simple and easy. This used to be the only tofu dish my husband would eat.
TacosCollapse )

Again a simple yet tasty recipe. Hits the spot when you're craving chinese.
Hot and Sour SoupCollapse )

And for the sweet tooth BrowniesCollapse )
