Since the community seems to not be dead...  
I have a few recipes I don't mind sharing:

Sausage and Potatoes
Cooking time: 20ish minutes
Cost: Around $5 if you get the stuff on sale, $7 if you don't
Serves: 2-4

  • 1 bag frozen potatoes o'brien (freezer section)

  • 1 sausage. NOT the breakfast kind. They're found by hotdogs. (I use turkey sausage or the light of whatever's on sale)

  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese

It works best if you have two people. Turn the stove on to medium-high. Have one person start putting the frozen potatoes into a pan by medium handfulls. Don't bother to use any oil or butter since the sausage will provide that. As the person chopping gets a reasonable amount of sausage, transfer it to the pan so the sausage and potatoes warm up, which will help get the next handfull of potatoes to melt faster. Eventually you'll have a very full pan... At that point, just fry it 'til the sausage and potatoes are brown. When it's done, mix in some cheese and voila, you've got a yummy dinner.

English Muffin Pizzas
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Cost: Depends on ingredients. $5-6 for basic stuff
Serves: 3-4 from one package of English muffins

  • 1 package plain English muffins

  • 1 can pizza sauce

  • Mozerella cheese

  • Optional: Any other pizza ingredients (I like turkey pepperoni, black or green olives and canned mushrooms)

Put the oven to broil and let it heat up. Cut the English muffins in half and arrange them on a cookie sheet. Put them under the broiler for about 30-45 seconds to toast them (WATCH THEM CAREFULLY!) Have people make their own with the sauce, cheese and ingredients. Broil the pizzas again (again, WATCH them!) until the cheese turns bubbly and starts to brown.

Baked Spaghetti
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Cost: $5
Serves: 4-6

  • 1 package spaghetti noodles

  • 1 jar of your sauce o' choice

  • Mozerella cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Boil a pot of water and cook the noodles according to direction/taste. When the noodles are done, drain them and dump them in a 9x13 pan. Mix in the sauce and put it in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the top is crispy and brown. Sprinkle with cheese and broil (fast) or bake (slow) until the cheese is melted and brown.

Enjoy! I know that my friends and I certainly have.
