5 Quick and Easy Recipes

...including breakfast. Enjoy!

NOTE: these are not supposed to go together. That's why lunch and snack are both pizza. Don't worry, though - lunch is a more filling pizza!

- BREAKFAST: oatmeal -
ingredients: oats, hot milk, sugar, fruit
  • oats
  • hot milk
  • sugar (opt)
  • fruit (opt)
directions: put rolled oats in bowl. Put milk in microwave, warm it until it's hot. Pour it over oats until oatmeal is clumping together. Don't add more, don't add less. It shouldn't be floating in milk, it should be clumped together. If you put in sugar, put it in until it's sweet-ish. If you put in fruit, put it in now and eat up! (warning: to those of you who don't like oatmeal, you won't like this.)

- APPETIZER: yogurt parfait -
  • yogurt
  • maple syrup
  • fruit
  • granola
directions: put yogurt in wineglass. Put granola on. Put fruit on top of granola. Drizzle maple syrup over fruit. Eat up! (warning: this is better with granola, so do not leave it out or sub something like rolled oats over it - that's gross.)

- LUNCH: bagel pizza -
  • bagel(s)
  • tomato/pizza sauce
  • cheese (preferably mozzarella)
directions: put bagel in toaster or oven until lightly toasted. Put on tomato sauce and put on cheese (I use shredded cheese because it will melt evenly over bagel, but if you use cheese sticks or slices of cheese, it may not melt evenly). Put in microwave (oven will brown your bagel even more, and your bagel may burn before cheese is melted) until cheese is melted and golden brown on top. Take out and enjoy! (warning: bagels aren't pizza dough, so you can also buy dough that comes in little circles and put pizza sauce and cheese on and then put it in the oven until either cheese is melted and golden brown or the dough is cooked and golden/lightly brown.)

- SNACK: mini pizzas -
  • tortilla(s), large if you're making more than four or five
  • tomato/pizza sauce
  • cheese (preferably mozzarella)
directions: place can as close to edge of tortilla as possible without going over it. Push down - hard - on can until you have cut out a circle with the edge of the can. You can also use a glass and a knife, but a can is easier. Cut out as many circle as is fitting for you (remember, as you're cutting this out, this is just a snack, not a full on meal. Only make enough to make your hunger pangs go away). Put tortilla circles in muffin tin (mini muffin tin, not those normal-sized ones - those are too big!). Put tomato or pizza sauce on/in. Sprinkle cheese over it. It has to be grated (or, pre-grated, for your convenience), not sliced because sliced will pool at the bottom once melted and cheese sticks you can't put on the edge - the cheese should be all around the tortilla circles. Then put muffin tins in oven and wait until cheese is melted and golden brown and then take out. Slide knife underneath tortilla and remove carefully. May burn you, so be careful! Put on decorative plate, if having guests over, or just put on normal plate if it's just normal you. Serve to either guests or normal you and enjoy!

- DESSERT: cookie in a mug -
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 T dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 T granulated sugar, white
  • 3 drops vanilla extract (or, a dash)
  • small pinch salt, kosher
  • 1 egg yolk
  • scant 1/4 all purpose flour (slightly less than 1/4 flour)
  • 2 T semi-sweet choc. chips (heaping)
directions: melt butter in microwave, add sugars, vanilla, and salt. Put in yolk, stir. Add flour, stir. add choc. chips, stir (it should now look like cookie dough. Cook in microwave 40-60 seconds, and start checking for doneness at 40 seconds (time may vary for different people's cookies). Do not cook past one minute, because like all other cookies, it will continue to cook in the mug until it's cooled off. if the cookie is dry and cake-like in texture, you've cooked it too long, so shorten the time the next time you make a cookie in a mug. Serve warm and enjoy! (note: if you like your cookies slightly coffee-like - add 1-1/2 t inst. coffee, stir until well-mixed, and then put in microwave.)
