5 recipes every guy should know?!

Question: 5 recipes every guy should know?
whether its the first time you have a girl over for dinner, or you just want to cook a real dinner, what are the top five recipes a guy can know?

mine (in no particular order).

home made pasta with bolognese sauce (or any sauce, only i prefer a heavy meat sauce).

home made pizza (including the crust, it always impresses girls when you toss it around)

caramelized fruits, with a yogurt or pudding beneath them

RIBS.... need i say more?

and... hot chocolate.

pasta is a dish that i love. i could cook it a million times, and it could taste differently every time. it just depends on what you want. it also has a certain appeal to it, when somebody hears "pasta", half the time they think of pouring noodles out of a box, and pouring some sauce out of a jar, and cooking everything for about ten minutes. but once you start making everything from scratch, it can turn into a real treat. its one of the tastiest dishes in the world, and with a bit of practice, its also one of the easiest to make. if you really want to make an impression, try singing "la donna E mobile" while you make it.

the pizza i always great for interacting and cooking at the same time. you can argue over what you want on it, and you can act like an idiot when you put the toppings on. you usually get a couple good laughs out of the cooking process, and in the end, it is delicious.

caramelized fruit is sooooo easy to make, and it is also very tasty. it impresses people when its really not impressive at all. it take a few minutes to make, and even fewer ingredients. on top of its simplicity, you can caramelize almost anything, not that you would want to.

the ribs take a bit more prep than the others, but the fact that you can leave them in the oven for hours worry free, and have plenty of time to do other things while they cook, are one of the reasons these made the list.

the hot chocolate is one of those special little recipes that everybody forgot about. your mom used to make it for you when you were a kid when it was gloomy outside, but since than you decided that coronation hot chocolate packs were "easier" to make. however, when you have a special girl over, homemade hot chocolate can make a very good impression. its easy to make, but almost everybody has forgotten about it. plus, it puts people at ease.

so... my question to you is this-
what are your top five guy recipes? also, for the women, what are yours?


my top 5:
-stir fry
-carrot cake

I think he should know 2 pastas lasagna or spaghetti a red sauce and a white sauce
A dinner creape and dessert creape
something comfy fried chicken meat loaf mashed potatoes
yes a great steak with conac cream sauce or pepper demi glaze some kind of nice sauce

cheesecake :) ,
chicken and dumplings!!

really good gravy!


Hey I found some recipes guys may like. I is to many to list here but her is where I found them.


Wow, all i'm going to say is that is good, and you don't need to worry about your recipes!

I think it is so manly if a guy knows how to grill a nice barbicue

. real tacos, with real ingredients...fresh home-made salsa, guacamole, etc.
. a vegetable pasta dish (also the wine to be paired with it)
. enchiladas with all the fixins...learn a failproof sauce recipe
. pizza, from scratch, like you said
. something with beets, chard, or kale...a good way to find out how picky she is

Except for the hot chocolate, your other recipes are "guy food". Learn a broiled fish with lemon sauce, stir fry chicken and vegetables with a homemade fried rice, a cold pasta salad, I make mine with shell pasta, chicken, celery, mandarin oranges and celery salt, omelets, homemade ice cream,, and every girl loves grilled cheese sandwiches.
