5 Recipes Every Adult Should Master

Isn’t being an adult way harder and much less fun than you imagined? Who would have thought you would need to do so much grocery shopping? When I was younger just feeding myself seemed like a daunting task. Over the course of a few months when I was 25 I slowly worked on my cooking stills and added more recipes to my repertoire. Today I am sharing 5 recipes every adult should master. These are recipes that teach a certain skill or generally make your life a little easier.

New Years Day Breakfast: Cheesy Potato Hash with Eggs and Bacon

1. Eggs. Let’s start with the simplest recipe. Eggs! Every adult should learn how to master making a sunny side up egg and scrambled eggs. It will make your mornings far more delicious. Making perfectly runny sunny side up eggs can be harder than you would think. The trick is to cook all of the egg white. You know how sometimes the very top of the white doesn’t cook? That’s no good. Learn my trick to perfect sunny side up eggs right here. And for light and fluffy scrambled eggs check out this post. (photo: Regan Baroni)

Lemon Garlic Roast Chicken

2. Roast Chicken. Growing up my parents made roast chicken for dinner all the time. And it makes perfect sense. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to feed a family. This recipe for Lemon Garlic Roast Chicken is my go-to roast chicken recipe.

3. A Drool Worthy Dessert. Everyone should have a wonderful but easy dessert recipe on deck – the type of dessert that everyone gets excited about when you bring it to a dinner party. My friends go nuts over my Caramel Cheesecake Brownies. My Mom brings her Lemon Squares to parties.

4. A Cocktail. Having a party? You will need to serve something to drink. Every adult needs to be able to make a cocktail. My friends love Cucumber Lime Gin and Tonics, which seems fancy but is easy to make. Plus it appeals to both men and women. Other fun cocktails are Grapefruit Lime Fizz (pictured), Strawberry Rosé Slushies, and Bourbon Lemonade.

5. A Quick Dinner Recipe. I remember coming home from my 9-5 job and being exhausted and not wanting to cook. It’s important to have some quick dinner recipes to rely on. My 20 Minute Sesame Chicken is one of my favorites. You can also try a 10 minute recipe for Goat Cheese Pasta, a 20 minute recipe for Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Salad, a 15 minute recipe for Naan and Whipped Feta Pizza, and a 25 minute recipe for Ranch Chicken Tacos.

This is such a great post! We start teaching our kids to cook when they're fairly young so that by the time they're ready to leave the house they'll know how to cook for themselves. I still remember being in college and having to call my mom and ask her how to boil chicken, haha. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Home Matters Link Party, hope to see you again next week:) #HomeMattersParty
