My TikTok “for you” page has been filled with recipes that look too good to be true. I decided to try some of these recipes for myself so that I could spice up my diet. If I’m being honest, I’m very lazy when it comes to cooking, but all of these recipes are super easy and taste amazing. So if you’re anything like me, these are for you!

Gigi Hadid’s Pasta — @mamainthekitchen

This recipe is all the rage in my apartment. It serves about 4 people and my roommates and I love it! To add some protein to this recipe we add grilled chicken or even use protein pasta.

½ red onion

2 cloves of garlic

6 oz tomato paste

1 tsp salt

2 tsp red pepper flakes

¼ tsp pepper

1 cup parmesan

2 tbsp chopped basil

1 tbsp butter

Instructions

  1. Cook your pasta and save pasta water
  2. Add olive oil to a pan and sauté onions
  3. Add garlic
  4. Add tomato paste and all spices
  5. Turn down the heat a little and add heavy cream
  6. Stir until everything is combined and add pasta water
  7. Put the cooked pasta into the pot with the sauce and coat all the pasta
  8. Add parmesan basil and butter in and stir
  9. Serve and enjoy

Yummy Baked Chicken — @nutrientmatters

I wanted to spice up my boring chicken and rice dish and this has been my favorite recipe so far. I usually double the marinade because I love a lot of flavors. This is amazing with rice or pasta and serves about 4-5 people.

Ingredients

4-5 pieces of chicken

1 tbsp mayonnaise

2 tsp mustard

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp dried parsley

½ tsp Montreal chicken

½ tsp red pepper flakes

½ tbsp honey

1 tbsp lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Make marinade by combining all ingredients in a bowl
  2. Rub on chicken
  3. Grill or bake chicken until fully cooked

Muddy Buddy Balls — @simply_unbeetable

If you love chocolate and peanut butter or muddy buddies, you will love this! The filling really makes this recipe stand out. Instead of mixing the chocolate and peanut butter together like you do in regular muddy buddies, you mix it into the crushed Chex cereal. This is my favorite dessert right now!

Ingredients

3 cups Rice Chex cereal

1 cup peanut butter

½ cup powdered sugar (1/4 for inside and a ¼ for outside)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups of chocolate of your choice

Instructions

  1. Add Chex cereal to a large bowl
  2. Crush the cereal into a fine consistency
  3. Add peanut butter, ¼ cup powder sugar, and vanilla to the cereal. Mix until the cereal mixture becomes moldable
  4. Chill the filling for about an hour
  5. Once chilled, roll the filling into balls
  6. Melt chocolate and dip the Chex mix balls into the melted chocolate
  7. Set them aside and wait for the chocolate cool and harden
  8. Coat each with powdered sugar and enjoy

Potato Wedges — @nutrientmatters

If you ever have a Sunday craving for Chick-Fil-A fries and sauce like I do, then this is perfect, as it’s basically just a fancy version of that! They can be made in an oven or an Air Fryer (which can make them even crispier). These are a perfect snack that can serve 3-4 people!

Ingredients

Potatoes:

6-8 potatoes

3-4 tbsp of oil of your choice ( I use olive oil)

1 tsp garlic powder

½ tsp oregano

½ red pepper flakes

½ tsp dried parsley

Salt and pepper

Dipping sauce:

4 tbsp mayo

½ tsp mustard

½ tsp honey

¼ of a lemon juiced or ½ tsp lemon juice

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp dried parsley

¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Wash potatoes thoroughly
  2. Cut potatoes into wedges
  3. Boil for about 8 minutes
  4. After potatoes are drained, poor the oil and spice mixture on potatoes. Make sure they are well coated
  5. Put potatoes on a baking tray
  6. Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes or until golden brown

These recipes are great for beginners and pros alike. Pick any one that sounds good to you, get your ingredients, and get to the kitchen!
