Maybe if you find a cooking show/competition you like you'll get some unique ideas :0 I just cook the same things I like a lot but some times I'll google "(food name) variations/etc." I like to bake more often though. Sometimes finding recipe for foods from shows I like is fun. Lembas from lord of the rings is yummy, I've made butterbeer cupcakes with similar flavored buttercream frosting. Pumpkin chocolate chip + nut bread is one of my favorites. Maybe look at other cultures too. I tried making ontbijtkoek once but I think I just don't like anise. Recently I made homemade bagels, some strawberry and some chocolate.

MyFridgeFood - Home lets you enter in what ingredients you own, and gives recipe suggestions. Maybe something fun could come of that.

Would you say you're looking for meal ideas or snacks?
I know you mentioned having some spare chocolate chips. Chocolate chip pumpkin bread is a favorite treat of mine around this time of year.

Admittedly it's more of a cake than bread but I've always heard it called it pumpkin bread anyway, haha.
Anyway:

1 box spice cake mix - I'm sure you can make this from scratch & it's likely even better but I'm lazy and never do.
14 ounce can of Pumpkin Puree
1-2 cups of chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Mix cake mix and pumpkin puree until you've got a smooth texture
  3. Stir chocolate chips into the batter. Once the chips are evenly mixed in, pour your mixture into a greased bread pan.
  4. I like to add a layer of chocolate chips across the top too but it's not required. I just think it looks (and tastes) nice.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about an hour.
  6. Test with a toothpick to see if it's done. Should come out clean. Let it cool and enjoy!

to be fair, I eyeballed my first sponge cake and it turned out amazing. So I'll try this out from scratch.

You'll probably nail it and have something far better than my laziness awards me.
Hope you enjoy and good luck!

Let's stay on topic.

I'd like to know what to do with a bunch of chocolate chips.

If you're still looking for ideas for those chocolate chips, you could make homemade peanut butter cups. You only need a cupcake pan and liners supplies wise. Ingredients wise you only need peanut butter, confectioners sugar, and butter. plus the chocolate chips of course. you'll need a lot.

I don't really have any recipes, but honey marinated chicken with rice and curry sauce is good and simple. I always buy pre-marinated ones so I don't have to worry about that.
Noodles with anything is good. Usually I throw in an egg or two to boil with the water and add some veggies or meat.
Mac-n-cheese is nice.
Potatoes in any form with meatballs and brown sauce is also good.
Sausages with veggies and macaroni is good too.

I don't have much spoons so all of these recipes can be done in like 30mins.
