Learning how to make a great pizza goes a long way. You can fine-tune most recipes to your own taste and purchase tools that will make your pizza cooking experience to the next level.

Seared Steak

Seared Steak is such a fast and fulfilling dish that will get you so many compliments. It’s a meal that you can make in various ways with a wide variety of sides. My favorite Seared Steak recipe is made with garlic butter and rosemary.

The hardest part of making a good Steak dish is to find the right meat. Often finding the right cut for Steak is not the cheapest option, try to find a local butcher or option for the more expensive ones in your local supermarket.

Simple Pasta Dishes

Every man should know how to make a simple pasta dish. Whether we call it mainstream or not, one of the simplest and perhaps most well-known pasta meals is Spaghetti Bolognese. That is why we recommend it as our pasta choice. You can get the ingredients at any local supermarket and prepare the meal in less than 1.5 hours.

Cheese board

It’s such a simple dish, the key here is the preparation and the way you position the food on the board. Despite its name, a cheese board not only contains cheese on it. Although most of the board is filled with cheese, you should include some sort of bread or crackers, fruits (fresh and dried), nuts, and some garnishes.

A cheese board will be the best snack option for when you plan to invite your friends over. Its simplicity makes it one of the most appealing options for snacks. It’s a fundamental dish for wine nights.

Chicken Noodle Soup

It may seem like an odd choice next to a cheese board and pancakes. However, it’s one of the greatest meals when you or a loved one is feeling ill. Knowing how to make a tasty bowl of Chicken soup is a skill every man should master. You can find many excellent recipes on the internet, which I can promise will be a thousand times better than the store-bought version.

In my opinion, pancakes are the best weekend breakfast. Ask anyone – the answer will be unanimous. Pancakes in bed are the best morning surprise. This is such a simple recipe that every person should know how to make it. If you don’t want to spend time in the morning, you can make the mixture the night before and just heat the pan, cook, and pour on some syrup, berries, or peanut butter.

Learning how to cook is not as difficult as you might think. I know it can be time-consuming and messy on your first try, but once you develop your style and purchase a few kitchen appliances, you will get better eventually.

The key is practice. Try new meals on your own, and if you get them right, you can make them for your friends and family. They will most likely be amazed by your cooking skills.
