  1. Tracy Says:

    It’s a mystery to me how you remain a bachelor with cooking skills like those! And the ability to somehow wipe off hardened Boyardee crud without using a jackhammer!

  2. Kelvin Kao Says:

    Well, this list certain has more French than I would’ve thought…

  3. Friar Says:

    Yes…my cooking influences have always been from French Haute cuisine.

  4. Cheryl Says:

    Works for bachelorettes too!

  5. CaptainPush Says:

    I got this recipe from one of my employees:

    One serving of “cup o’ noodles” which contains no nutritional value. To remedy that, he crushes up some potato chips and adds the “seasoning” to the dish.

    Sounds delicious but I admit I haven’t tried it YET.

  6. Zhu Says:

    And to think some France has the best cuisine in the world…! That’s it, I’m adopting all the recipes. I just hope I can follow the instructions. Next time, detail a bit more please 😆

  7. Friar Says:

    I’m disillusioned…I thought women were above this sort of thing!

    @Captain Push
    And the chips would count as your serving of veg, right?

    That’s about as detailed as the instructions get.

    Anything more than six steps is too complicated to make, and not worth doing.

  8. Friar Says:


    Whooops. You kinda got lost in my spam filter, for some reason.

    But those dried-on Boyardee stains come off pretty good..with those Mr. Clean sponges.

  9. Friar's Mom Says:

    @Wee Friar,

    In the latest copy of Mcleans magazine, an article mentioned Deep Fried Butter. I’m sure you’d enjoy it, but the recipe is not suitable for “Easy Recipes for Bachelor’s Who Hate to Cook”.

    Curious me Googled “Deep Fried Butter” and discovered a recipe for “Deep Fried Ice Cream”. I ask myself why?

    You can learn from Friar’s Blog.

  10. Friar Says:

    @Friar’s Mom

    I’ve had deep-fried ice-cream. It’s actuallq quite good.

    Not as bad as it sounds. It’s a frozen rock-hard ball of icecream. Put in batter and quickly fried. There’s not tons of dough or anything. It’m more like a thin, sweet crust.

    You can’t go wrong, with deep-frying. I am even willing to eat veggies if they are prepared this way.
