I know you need that super quick, no fuss, no work dinner once in awhile. Maybe even more than once in awhile. I got you. It’s not too pretty, but it’s mighty tasty.
There are few foods in this world as comforting as a hot, steaming, fragrant plate of chicken tikka masala. But that’s just like, my opinion, man. I love how it makes my kitchen smell, I love eating it, and I love how easy it is to make at home. That’s enough talk, right?
This is my go-to vegetarian, cheap, and easy meal. It hits all these points while being nutritious and delicious. Also, my kids eat it without complaints and that’s always a win.
Every summer I get just a little bit closer to mastering the grill. It’s like I’m slowly accruing experience points and when I made this pork tenderloin, it felt like a level up. Yes, I use this analogy quite often. No, I will not stop. That’s exactly what it felt like! It was perfectly cooked, guys. I took a bunch of pictures, but then I had to replace my phone, so I guess you’ll have to take my word for it. I made this with the intention of putting it in a pork fried rice (as in, it wouldn’t matter if I over-cooked it), but we ended up making a main dish out of it, using the leftovers for the fried rice. I highly recommend either way.
I know, I know, it’s a big claim. Just sit there. Keep reading. We’ve been making chicken fajitas for years and have tried many different recipes from simple and easy, to multi-step madness. This is the best and easiest recipe, by far. The marinated chicken comes out so flavorful and juicy, the peppers and onions come out perfectly cooked, wrap it in a tortilla and just try and tell me I’m wrong about them being the best in the world.
Yup. You are 3 minutes away from having a bowl of delicious guacamole sitting in front of you. On your chips. In your taco. On your burger. My kids eat it with a spoon if I let them. Whatever transportation vessel you chose, you need this guac in your mouth. This is the recipe I use when I need guac in a hurry. Like, oh no, I just pulled the nachos out of the oven and forgot to make the guacamole. Not even a problem, man.
This is a sauce that cooks almost all day, has tons of flavor, and is great for many different applications. We’ve used it for spaghetti, lasagna, and zoodles (zucchini noodles). Best of all, it’s basically half vegetables! If this isn’t one of those trick-your-kids-into-eating-healthy things then I don’t know what is. It does take a bit of effort, a bit of standing over a hot pot in the kitchen, but it’s all worth it. You will be swimming in bolognese for weeks. (It’s a good thing, really.)
