As eggs seem to be the foodstuff of the moment, I feel it would be criminal to not mention an ommlette. A very simple recipie.

Take 1 egg (for a snack) or 2 eggs (if your hungry)

A splash of milk (around 1/4 of a cup probably, i dont know, i always add 'a splash')

A knob of butter

optionally you can add chees, pre cooked meat, vegetables, or whatever the hell you want.


Whisk (thats stiriing really quickly and violently to get air in the mixture, if you dont have a whisk use a fork) the eggs, milk and butter in a bowl.

Heat a small amount of butter in a frying pan on a medium - high heat until the butters melted.

Tip the Omlette mixture in on pan

Once the omlette is is the pan you can add the meat, veggies or cheese.

Cook for around 5-10 minutes, pushing the edge of the omlette away from the pan regualrly. the mixture will gradually start to set as it cooks. When the top side is just starting to set (or if you lift up one side of the omlette and see the underside ios nearly burning) you will need to flip it over.

The easiest way to flip it is to lay a plate on top of the pan that is slightly bigger than the pan itself. Invert the pan so the omeltte falls out onto the plate. Then put the pan back on the heat and gently slide the omlette off the plate and back into the pan.

Cook on this side untill it starts to brown off. Tip onto a plate, and enjoy!

One recipe that is getting me through my second year at uni.

You need about a bowl full of pasta (not full, full, after all, pasta expands once it cooks)
Onions, Green or Yellow or Red Peppers, mushrooms and any other veg that you wouldn't mind frying.
Cheese (if you want it)
Dolomio sauce (or anyother pasta sauce)

Take the pasta, stick it in a pan of boiling water, don't forget to add some salt, I don't know why, but that's what all the books say. The pasta should be done in about 15-20 minutes

Once done, cut half an onion up and then cut it up some more into oniony chunks, if you want some peppers, then half of a pepper (any colour will do) again cut up into smaller chunks of peppers (don't forget to cut out the fleshy bits and the seeds, and if you desire mushrooms, a handful, sliced up.

Frying pan, or just a regular pan, bit of olive oil (or any oil for that matter) heated up. *At this point make sure you ain't cooking naked.* Throw in the veg, step back, and then once you feel brave enough, step up and keep the veg moving, otherwise it'll burn on one side. Once the onions are browned, throw in about a quarter to half a jar of the pasta sauce, turn down the heat a little, mix it all up. Depending on the sauce, 5 minutes should be enough for the sauce to be done.

By now the pasta should be done, taste it, it tastes cooked, it probably is. Drain the water from the pasta.

Now you can approach the next phase in three ways, the first is to relocate the pasta from the pan to a plate, and then stick the sauce on top.

Or you can mix the sauce into the pan with the pasta, and then serve.

Same as above, only grate some cheese, stick the pan back on a low- medium heat and mix the cheese in until it melts, and then serve.

Grind some peppers and salt if desired.

Eat.

Another handy recipe, is that of bangers, mash and beans.

Peel and cut some potatoes up, stick 'em in a pan of boiling hot water and cover. They'll be ready when they're ready, but the way to tell that they are ready is to jab 'em with a fork. If the fork slides into the potato like it would into butter, or something like that, then they're ready.

Grill sausages, turning occasionally, don't forget to prick 'em.

If you want fry some onions! (mmm...onions...fried...)

Once potatos are ready, drain, a touch of milk, a spoon of butter and then mash! Throw in the onions you fried, leave on a low-low heat. Stick beans in a bowl and nuke - microwave - them. Once sausages are done stick everything on a plate and eat!

Finally the student special...

Beans on toast.

Baked Beans - microwave them.
Bread - toast them.

Butter toast. Place beans on top.

Okay, I've got one.

INGREDIENTS:

1 egg
several large bars of chocolate.
medium size bag of marshmallows. (though chocolate white mice can be used if you have a sweet tooth)
1 bottle of port (can be substited by drink of choice though should be sweet tasting)

METHOD
Melt chocolate in a bowl floating in hot water and rest in front of log fire.
Place marshmallow on kabab stick.
Dip into melted chocolate and continue until all gone.
Accompany with bottle of port.
Finally, take egg back to kitchen. (if you are able - this I find is good excercise after eating chocolate.

Not a recipe, but something I've been doing often recently.

Take 2-3 bags of preferred cheesy snack (works best with Wotsits, but any will suffice).

Eat the first bag.  Do not swallow any of the resulting cheesy gunk.

Eat the second bag.  Do not swallow any of the resulting cheesy gunk.

It will be very, very difficult to proceed beyond this point without swallowing because of the delicious cheesy mass.  For the true experience, the intrepid eater must deploy a third bag.

Eat the third bag.  Do not swallow any of the resulting cheesy gunk.

You will now basically have three bags of cheesy snacks in your mouth.  Here comes the difficult part.  Without swallowing, get as much of the gunk off your teeth and gums, deploying your tongue and what little saliva you can muster, until it's simply a solid mass in the centre of your mouth.

Now, swallow.  This is the cheesiest taste experience ever.  You will find that you are 'cheesed out' afterwards, but this feeling fades with time.

Very well, I shall do an actual recipe to restore the thread's dignity.

The "Fat Bastard."

Fry two rashers of bacon.  It is best still going oink, but some people prefer it crispy.  They are wrong, but do not apply a red hot spatula to their face.  It often offends.

Place the bacon on a slice of bread.  Add a splash of tomato sauce.  Overlay the bacon with a slice of cheese (the pre-packaged single slices of plastic cheese are best).  Push the second slice of bread down on top, creating a compact sandwich.  Leave time for the cheese to melt, then consume.

Delicious.

Agree with you on the bacon. Not so sure about the plastic cheese >:] I also prefer salad cream (herecy, I know).

Here's an easy one.

You'll need a bag of blood oranges and some black pepper.  Peel the blood oranges, and slice them up.  I find thick slices work better, as thin ones just fall to bits.  You can try half-oranges, if you're hungry.  Take a bowl and chuck the slices in it.  Dust with black pepper, so the pepper sticks to the exposed juicy sections.  Scoff.

I made some for a friend and then nearly ate the lot.   >:]

Don't forget to drink the spicy juice out of the bowl afterwards.  Yum.

Do you not just chuck it all in a pot and bring it to the boil?

Absolutely not! Fresh herbs are best if chucked in the pot after the rest is done. This way the most of the aromatic oils is preserved.

Dried herbs need cooking though.

There comes a point where soup turns to stock turns to stew.

And you really don't want to overcook potatoes...
