These are some quick things I've been cooking up while I've been at college to save money and eat healthier and more fulfilling meals. Cinnamon French Toast
2 slices of wheat bread
1 large egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbs butter
Warm up skillet with butter on medium heat. Wisk cinnamon powder and egg together in a bowl. Dip each slice of bread in egg and cinnamon mix to completely coat. Place slices side by side on skillet and flip over when bottom gets light brown. Remove from heat and serve with maple syrup on top. Angel Hair Shrimp Pasta
1 lb wheat angel hair pasta
26 oz. any white based pasta sauce of preference (I used a three cheeses tomato flavor-delicious!)
1-1 1/2 lb peeled, raw large shrimp
3 cups of water (or how ever much is indicated on pasta box directions)
2 tbs butter
2 tsp basil and olive oil spread (optional)
cherry tomatoes (garnish)
1 bag of broccoli steamers (2lb)
1 clove garlic
Cook pasta according to directions. Mince garlic. While pasta is cooking, heat 2 tsp of butter on skillet. Add 1 tsp of basil and olive oil spread and garlic. Add shrimp to hot skillet and cook until pink. Turn off heat and set aside. Heat up broccoli according to directions in microwave. Drain pasta and set aside. In the empty pot used to cook the pasta, heat up the pasta sauce by simmering. Cover for about 5 minutes. Turn off heat. Mix pasta, broccoli, and shrimp into pasta sauce. Serve with a few fresh cherry tomato halves on top.
More things I have cooked in the apartment:
Green Curry Chicken
Beef and Chicken Stir Fry
Spagetti with Turkey Meatballs
Most of these recipes have cost me $5-$10 and can serve as much as four people! That's so much better than one meal from a restaurant that costs $15.
