In dire need of recipe help!

First, this is what it looks like when we have been eating all-you-can-eat-chinese-buffet. Om nom nom. It was absolutely delicious!

Second, I need some inspiration for recipes! I don’t care if they are vegetarian or vegan or packed full of meat or fish, I just need some serious help getting the cooking going. The thing is – I absolutely love food, eat it, look at it, take pictures of it, discovering new food I haven’t tasted before… however, I can not cook. It is not that I am so terribly bad at cooking (well, not anymore!), it is just that no matter how hard I try, I can not find enjoyment in cooking. The more I cook, the more I dislike it. I enjoy making salads and things that does not involve boiling or frying or any kind of heat, but the moment heat is involved I don’t like it. But, a girl has to eat, so I need some suggestions! All I am asking is that they are simple enough so I can possibly pull them of without hurting myself or others in the process. Another thing is that I need to be able to find the ingredients in Japan, and cook them in Japan, which means no big turkey to put in the oven I do not have. Please share any recipes you might have which are easy, fun and taste decent. Thank you very much!

      Det høres kjempegodt ut! Nå må jeg bare finne ut av hvordan jeg lager den tomat-tingen. Ja, for så basic nivå er jeg på – jeg må slå opp hvordan man koker vann og sånn. Men det pleier å gå bra til slutt, tusen takk for godt tips, dette skal prøves :D

    I discovered recently a salad with couscous and lentils (hope these ingredients are easily to be found in Japan). Boil the couscous and the lentils according to the instruction on the package. Then I add oil, mustard, vinegar, fresh cucumber, white cheese and onion. I guess you can have with your salad and some fresh fish. Hope u like! :)

      Thank you so much! I will have to try this. I have made couscous before, so this should be doable, even for me.

    Jeg har nylig oppdaget at man kan putte mye spennende i vanlige pannekaker. Pesto, kesam, soltørkede tomater og baconbiter feks. Vips så har du noe godt, enkelt og mettende som er søtt og salt på en gang.

    Tomatchutney kan lages på mange måter,her er min variant: Kutt tomater,vårløk (evt rødløk) og basilikum i små biter,surr det hele i panna med olivenolje eller hvilken som helst annen olje til tomaten og løken er myk. Så er den ferdig:D
