If you’re like me and love to cook, then you know that sometimes it’s just easier to make your own food instead of going out. What if all you had to do was buy some ingredients, put them together in a pan, and get dinner on the table? That’s exactly what this list is for!
Pizza is a great comfort food, and you can make it in a variety of ways. You can make it in a variety of styles, whether it’s a thin crust or a deep dish. You can even add your own spin to the toppings and sauces!
Burgers are one of the best foods you can make at home, and they’re especially easy to make if you have a grill. The meat should be lean, but not too lean—you want it to be flavorful but still soft. If you want more flavor, add some Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce before cooking; this will give your burger some extra heat and depth of flavor.
As for toppings on burgers (and other foods), always go with fresh ingredients! They’ll taste better than anything pre-made in the store. For example:
- Try onions instead of pickles or lettuce; they’re healthier than pickles anyway!
- Use tomatoes instead of ketchup—they’re sweeter and softer than condiments like mayo or mustard (which can be too sour).
A nice bowl of pasta
Pasta is a great comfort food. It’s quick and easy to make, and you can put different sauces on it to make it fancy. There are so many ways you can spice up your pasta, but I love adding garlic to mine!
You don’t need anything fancy for this recipe—just some elbow macaroni or penne pasta (or any other kind), olive oil, salt & pepper (and maybe some parmesan cheese). Just cook the pasta until al dente; drain the water; add butter or oil if desired; then toss with sauce ingredients like Parmesan cheese or crushed red pepper flakes!
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are a classic. They can be made with any kind of bread, and there are countless variations on the theme. You can use any kind of cheese—cheddar, Swiss, mozzarella—and add different kinds of meat (ham or bacon). Instead of using mayo or chicken salad as fillings for your sandwich, try using fresh tomato slices instead! If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some dill pickles to your sandwich as well; they’ll help balance out the saltiness from the cheddar cheese while still giving it an added kick.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to grilled cheese sandwiches: just remember that whatever combination you choose will taste amazing!
Chicken pot pie.
Chicken pot pie is a classic, and there are so many variations on this theme. You can make it with or without meat, you can use vegetables other than those in your favorite mix, and you can even swap out the tater tots for mashed potatoes instead of the traditional crust.
This recipe is easy to follow and tasty (even if you aren’t a fan of chicken). It’s also flexible enough that if one night you feel like making something different, just swap out ingredients accordingly!
Enchiladas are a traditional Mexican dish that uses corn tortillas to wrap up meat and cheese. The best part about enchiladas is that they can be made in advance, so you don’t have to worry about anything after you’ve eaten one!
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Half cup onion, diced (about 1 small)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon cumin seed powder (Optional)
- 1 teaspoon oregano leaves (Optional)
- Half teaspoon chili powder (optional)
- Roast chicken and vegetables.
- Roast chicken and vegetables.
Chicken is a good source of protein, and it can be made in a crockpot or oven. You can add potatoes and other vegetables to make this meal even more nutritious. This dish is also great served with gravy or sauce, rice or bread so that you have something to eat when you are done eating the chicken!
Chili or soup you make in a crockpot.
Chili is a great, quick way to make homemade food. If you want to make your own chili, here are some tips:
- Add the meat and spices at the beginning of cooking. This will help them cook evenly and prevent them from burning as much on the bottom of your crockpot as they do when cooked in an open pot on top of your stovetop.
- Don’t add any water or broth until after about 30 minutes or so of simmering time has passed (you can add these last if needed). Doing this will keep all of those delicious flavors intact!
Spaghetti and meatballs.
- The ingredients are easy to find.
- The recipe is easy to follow.
- The food tastes great, and it’s healthy! There are so many reasons why this pasta dish should be at the top of your list as your go-to homemade meal when you’re craving something tasty and filling that is the best for a healthy diet.
Also, it’s super easy to make—just throw everything in a pot and let it simmer while you do other things around the house (or work). And if you have kids who might not enjoy eating meatballs by themselves, try serving them with some sauce or bread on the side for dipping purposes!
Tuna Noodle Casserole – with cream of mushroom soup, peas, and lots of onions.
- 1 can tuna (in water)

- 1 cup frozen peas (thawed)

Pour into a lightly greased 9×13 pan and bake for about 50 minutes or until bubbly around the edges of the casserole dish.*You can use this method if you don’t have time to cook your pasta separately from the sauce!
Sometimes you just want to eat homemade food.
Sometimes you just want to eat homemade food. You can make it from scratch, using your own ingredients and recipes that you’ve developed over time.
It’s much healthier than store-bought foods because they are made with lots of preservatives and other chemicals that aren’t very good for your body. And it’s usually cheaper too!
So there you have it, a list of our favorite homemade foods. We hope these recipes will inspire you to make some of your own. Remember, the most important thing is that they taste good—and that can come from anywhere!
