My wife doesn't cook much anymore, so it's up for me to get healthy food back into the house. I'm looking for meals for 1 or 2 that are quick to prep, minimum baking time, and would like to start with a core set of fresh ingredients / spices that are readily available in the northern states (MN). One special consideration is finding foods my wife can eat because she has had stomach surgery a few years ago. I work full time so do not have a lot of prep time, nor do we eat much at once sitting - but leftovers for work the next day would be a huge bonus. My wife is a great asset to helping me, but she won't be the primary cook, or dishwasher hence minimal stuff to wash up after I'm done.
Lastly, I prefer lots of chopping and cutting (why else would I be on KKF?) and hate micro-measuring ingredients. I want to move more to vegetarian or at least minimal meat (and I love meat!) for most dishes primarily so it's easier to keep the weight off when I'm not active all winter.
Can you folks drop some links to you favorite foodie sited and forums?
