My basic requirement is that recipes don't require a lot of skill. They aren't all necessarily short though. Some require a lot of preparatory cutting unless you have a food processor (like latkes).
Notes: Use a lot of salt in the pasta water. Don't burn the oil you toast pepper in, but do let it toast for as long as possible (before burning).
Notes: Two bunches of spinach. Never enough spinach.
Notes: Use generous amount of sugar. The result won't be sweet but it better brings out the contrast with vinegar and spice.
Notes: Swap potatoes for any root vegetables (turnip, sweet potato, carrots, onions) for variety. Serve with sour cream, pickles, and/or apple sauce. Without these toppings you'll need to add more salt than you think or the latkes will be pretty bland.
Notes: Keep the soup and bread separate so they can be stored easily. Serve bowl-at-a-time by dishing soup into a bowl, covering with one or two pieces of bread, topping with generous amount of sliced Gruyere/Emmental/Jarlsberg or (American) Swiss cheese and microwave for a minute or two until the cheese melts.
Notes: Unlike many recipes here the flavor in this dish is not extremely strong. But it's still a good dish. Make sure to use feta stored in a brine.
Notes: You'll need a nearby HMart or other Korean grocer.
Notes: Easy way to eat tons of veggies. -1 for involving processed meats, however.
