    What are some of the most common dishes you or your family tend to cook for dinners? I'm looking for some new ideas or even recipes (if I should get so lucky).

    Thanks. :)

    It's better than salt and pepper sandwiches.

    Depends on the day, and how much time I have:
    Varying pastas (Alfredo, wine sauces, tomato sauce)
    Stuffed chicken, fajitas, tacos, steak and potatoes, stew w/dumplings, soups, beef roasts, meatloaf, pizza, hamburgers, chicken or beef stir fry, chicken and waffles, and chicken casseroles. Small snapshot, not everything I make of course.

    Pork Adobo with Potato Recipe

    Pork Adobo with potato over rice used to be one of my favorites before I turned vegetarian.
    Not too hard to make either.

    Oh, my wife can make a good pasta carbonara actually. Spaghetti noodles, bacon, eggs, milk and cheese. It is really good and easy to make. :thumbsup:

    I make a big variety of stuff for dinner, that can include dish options and choices from traditionally breakfast, lunch, or dinner dishes. For dinner though specifically I try to eat something lighter and smaller, a "glorified snack" of sorts. But for a dinner, some of my favorite is breaded chicken parmesan, pizza, breakfast burrito, grilled or toasted sandwiches, shrimp with a dipping sauce, I'm fond of baked potatoes, eat the potato part, put cheese and seasonings on the skin and rebake it, fried chicken/rice/veg (usually lots of peppers) and a sauce, pulled pork BBQ (after it's sat in a slow cooker all day), pot roast (again with the all day cooking), and a bunch of other stuff. I can pretty much cook any recipe you put in front of me, so I tend to experiment and often try new recipes (including making my own new ones).
    But, definitely overall, if I cook for someone as I cook for me, expect lots of heat and spice. Not always, but I do like my popcorn to be hot. But the heat that comes from cayenne and chili powder, and peppers that are hotter. I try my best to keep it so meats don't require a knife for cutting, for the most part, but the chicken might make it feel like your tongue is being burnt off with acid (though I promise no actual harm is being done because it literally is all in your head when it comes to peppers).

    I tend to use McCormick's cajun a lot and have a good cajun chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and peas.

    I also like jambalaya and gumbo soups smacked with Cajun spice.

    It's easy to make and cheap. I pour in the McCormicks and shake the chicken like shake and bake until it's well coated with Cajun. HOT!!!

    You also might be surprised how good ramen can be made into a tuna casserole.

    I use use that cheap Nissan ramen soup with the chicken flavor adding albacore tuna and peas with mayonnaise cook/bake and stir and wallah!! I found it to be surprisingly flavorful.

    Once I get the time, I would also love to try to make a bowl of Chanko Nabe. A Japanese recipe. It's extremely high calorie though.

    My father also used to make baked sandwiches with tuna with mayonnaise stirred in, tomato slice, covered with cheese until brown. Mmmm

    How about Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta?

    You need a BBQ chicken (pre-cooked chicken cut up into bite sized pieces, no bones)
    a small tub of mushrooms sliced. (or six med sized mushrooms)
    1 Large brown onion, cut in half and sliced.
    1 cup milk, 1/2 cup cream,
    1 level teaspoon tumeric, 1 level teaspoon paprika, salt and pepper to taste,
    1 chicken stock cube. (be careful not to add too much salt as the cubes are fairly salty)
    1/2 cup finely chopped parsley.
    1 good dessertspoon honey.
    1 Tablespoon corn flour to thicken, 2 cups pasta, cooked to your liking in salty water.
    I like bow ties or curly pasta for this dish.

    Saute' onion in a little olive oil and add mushrooms and spices, cook till tender,
    then add milk and and stock cube and cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
    Add the chicken, honey and cream and after stirring a few minutes, thicken with cornflour in a little water.
    Lastly add the chopped parsley.
    Serve over pasta and enjoy.

    One of my family's favorites. ;)

    We have our differences, but this is the most egregious.

    Mate, invest in an air fryer.
    I burn eggs and can’t be bothered cooking most days. And even I can cook everything from fish and chips to pizzas and even fried/marinated chicken thanks to its wizardry.

    Also non American here, what’s a sloppy Joe?

    Wheat tortilla (Roti), rice, lentils, vegs. Eat that while grumbling all the time. I am a non-veg. person. Or give me something deep-fried with lots of oil, salt and chilies. Pickles too. 'Tamasic' food, considered good only for evil persons in Hinduism. Family likes 'Sattvic' food, food for sages, with less, less and less of everything.

    It's chopped up ground beef cooked in a skillet with brown sugar and ketchup served up on a hamburger bun. I think it's horrible.
