I have attempting to diet for a solid year now. I have been just attempting to bulk and it isnt working well to say the least. I need recipies that I can make in large quantities and keep in the fridge. I would like to just pull it out 2-3 times a day, bring it to school and be able to put on a good 10-15 pounds.

I usually just cook up a bunch of chicken breast, broccoli, and brown rice and put them all in tupperware containers:
6-8oz Chicken breast (or other lean meat)
1/2-1 cup Broccoli (or other green vegetable)
0-1/2 cup Brown Rice (or quineoa)
You can adjust all of the serving sizes to modify your cals and macros depending on your goals. Quineoa can substitute for rice to add some cals, and other green vegetables can be substituted for broccoli if you get tired of it.

One thing I make every other week is a tuna salad.
It makes about 5 servings, and it tastes sooo good even if you dont like tuna. A girlfriend of mine tried it, and freakin' loved it.
3 eggs ( i use 4, and leave out the yolk )
4 cans tuna
Light mayo (or alternative)
Spicy brown mustard
(salt, pepper . . . .spices of any kind really)
How to prepare:
Hard boil the eggs.
Drain the tuna
Chop up the hard boiled eggs
Mix tuna, eggs and all condiments and spices.
It is very easy to make, and has lots of protein.
I usually spread a huge heap onto 2 peices of wheat toast.
I dont really count calories, so see for your self what the breakdown is per serving. . . .
I am no Chef (my sister is though)
This just works for me . . .

Another good one is along with that chicken that Jet suggested is cooking whole wheat pasta and using that in place of the brown rice. A lot of times I like to put the servings in individual bags to nuke when I need a quick meal. Another thing I like to cook and freeze is lean beef.

Yes, yes..cook big pots of stuff!
Here's a good one:
sweet potato pancakes: make the batter and then take 5 minutes to grill them when you're hungry...I like to eat them with a couple of eggs.
A VERY tasty recipe I adapted from others online:
2-3 med sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed (3 cups)
1 tbsp oil (flax?)
1/3 cup oatmeal
1 tbsp honey
1 cup milk
1/2 cup wheat flour
3 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 tsp bak soda
1 tsp bak powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup wheat bran
Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, then together.
Cook pancakes on well oiled skillet (PAM) on medium heat

Another recipe I like is bean curry (light on the salt/seasonings of course)
Grill till light brown in a bit of olive oil (or pam if you're cutting):
a bit of vegetable curry pre-made mix to taste (can be found at any ethnic indian store)...you can also add your own spices to have more control over flavor
cook for a couple minutes
then add in canned kidney beans and cook for at least 5-10 minutes
You can play around with the ingredient amounts, I usually just eyeball it...depends on your tastes
This is a really tasty recipe...kinda spicy, but I like my food to taste good too....

oh btw, those both keep for about a week...the pancake batter gets a little browned, but it should be fine...I've been eating it...I'm not dead...obviously

I sometimes cook my beef. About 1-2kg or so.
I take a little fatter pieces for this.
I add some veggies to this(carrots and such)...
I cook it for hour or two. I have it in the fridge, and spread it trough 3-4 days!

I cook the entire bag of boneless skinless chicken breast at 1 time.
I cook a entire box of brown rice
2 Bags of steam broccoli
Dice a small chicken breast up (6-7 oz)
1/2 cup steamed broccoli
1/2 cup brown rice
Cook 3 egg white and when almost done add your rice
cooking on medium heat as all your doing is heating up. I add Hoisin Garlic Sauce (2 tbl spoons) stir in wok or non stick skillet. Add your Chicken and broccoli heat for a minute or 2 and enjoy.
I have also used lean cuts of meat in this as well and it is awsome.
