    Oh Lindsay, bet you were the youngest child.

    I have a recipe for a Ham and noodle Fritata that uses 2 minute noodles and is quick and easy. I'll hunt it out for you, its one of those things you can't stuff up and is actually more impressive than it sounds, quick, easy and just serve with some salad... also nice cold like a slice.

    mmmm so many yummy sounding things!!

    MG, I make a yummy potato and leek soup also...I love it!

    I have 2 which get commented on...first being a mince casserole type of dish which has vegies and pasta in it...doesn't sound like much, but it's yummy and everyone loves it.

    Second is lamb with lime marmalade and garlic - which I serve up with mashed potato, brocolli & cauliflower with cheese sauce.

    Both so easy and fairly quick to make.

    Ok... I'll hunt out my quick food book and chuck some nice easy things on here for you... Fritattas are great because they are really easy to make but look impressive.

    Just a trick... get one of those Chilli con carne flavour packets, and make the mince but then serve it like nachos... super easy, super quick and what guy doesn't like nice hot nachos. Its not something you could have every night but always good to have on the nights you can't be bothered... haven't really got time.

    Jelvie here is how I make pesto:

    Put washed and dried basil leaves into blender. We grow our own basil and I put in as much as will fit into my blender. Also add handful of roasted pine nuts and tiny bit of salt/pepper. Blend adding small amounts of good quality olive oil until its kind of like a paste.

    Then I freeze in ice cube trays or small containers. Easy and delish!

    Oh yeah I forgot about the parmesan cheese, I sometimes add that too. Haven't tried sundrieds but may have to now. You can also add black olives if you like them but I haven't tried that.

    Danni (and anyone else who is interested) here is the chicken recipe.

    I use chicken breast fillets (abt 1kg) but you could use thigh fillets I guess.

    Cut the chicken into strips abt 2cm wide and whatever length.

    Put the chicken into plain flour and then into an egg wash then into the seasoned breadcrumbs and cook in fry pan with some oil. If you want just colour the chicken in the pan and finish cooking in oven - 180 degrees.

    Seasoned Breadcrumbs

    I use Krummies multigrain breadcrumbs - gives crunchy texture but also works with ordinary breadcrumbs with some crushed cornflakes.

    Add some Masterfoods Piri Piri seasoning (chilli flakes, lemon peel, garlic) Now this is hot spicy so use sparingly - as you get used to it you will use more!!!

    And sometimes I add a small amount of grated parmesan cheese.

    Deosn't really need any salt/pepper - that is up to you!

    ENJOY!!!

    I also make a mean chilli pasta - a great fresh light dinner great for Sunday dinners or as an accompanient to the chicken or as side dish at BBQs. I will post it later if anyone wants.

    Hmmm - will try and remember what i do for the Mango, Macadamia and Chicken Filos.
    Don't have quantities i kind of play it by ear.

    Light thickened cream
    Chicken breast or thigh
    1/2 -1 small onion - finely diced
    1 clove garlic - crushed
    Tinned mango (i just keep adding diced pieces as i go til it looks like enough)
    Finely chopped macadamias (or other nuts eg pistachios, walnuts, almonds..)
    Cracked pepper and seasalt to taste
    Filo pastry - light

    Fry up onion, garlic, chicken..til browned. Slowly add cream (prob half a cup or so - depending on quantity - pretty much just til ingreds are covered and creamy). Add mango, nuts, salt & pepper. Add more cream if necessary - and a splash of white wine never goes astray either! Don't let it get too runny though. can add some breadcrumbs to thicken. Allow to cool in pan to thicken.

    Use about 6 layers of filo pastry and cut into rectangles. Spoon cooled ingreds onto one end of pastry and roll up. Fold up ends.

    Bake in mod oven until golden. Enjoy!

    Um, with the pesto, are you forgetting the garlic????? I luuuuuurve garlic, couldn't have pesto without it! Love the pesto with parmesan too mmmmmmmm.

    Some faves here are

    Spaghetti with prosciutto (Bill's)
    Veal Saltimbocca
    Crunchy pork (can be chops or steaks)

    Anything chocolate!
    Choc chip bread and butter pudding with butterscotch sauce (yuuuuum!)
    Caramel Banana SS pudding (Bill's)
    Nigella's alcoholic hot chocolate (not a meal I know, but any hot choccie with seven ingredients has to be great - and it really is!)

    I made Christy's banana choc chip cookies this week and they have been a HUGE hit with DH!

    Oh, and Lindsay, good on you for learning to cook (I hope your MIL is nice LOL!). The trick is not to be scared. Just follow the recipe, and you should be fine. Eventually, after practice, you get better at not needing the recipes so much. And remember.....we have all have disasters in the kitchen! It's good to have a laugh about them down the track Oh, and if your MIL is Italian, get her to teach you to make gnocchi one day.......yum!
