PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not be scared to cook. I promise you, Hungry Girl recipes are SO easy to make. I am not a professional chef. I'm really a regular person with very basic kitchen skills. And that's EXACTLY the type of person that HG recipes are for. There are no fancy cooking terms or complicated instructions (NONE!). And the ingredients called for are familiar and easy to use. Most of the recipes are more like food "assembly" than anything else. To get you started, here are some insanely easy recipes now...
"Egg Mug" Scrambles - You don't even have to work a spatula to make these morning mini-meals. They cook up in the microwave!
Foil-Pack Recipes - People love these because they're basically foolproof. Just plop your food in the center of some foil, wrap it up (doesn't have to be perfect, I promise!), and toss in the oven. Then unwrap and eat!
Hip, Hip, Parfaits! - If you can get dressed in the morning, you can put together a parfait. It's all about layering. A little of this, a little of that, and you're good to go!
So do yourself a favor and work up the courage to go into the kitchen and try a few. Look for recipes that appeal to you at hungry-girl.com or in the book Hungry Girl 200 Under 200. They are CRAZY-SIMPLE and you will succeed with flying colors. I am sure of this! Just do it... for me? You'll be so happy you made the leap. Good luck and stay in touch! :)
