Cooking from Scratch as Simply as Possible
The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook is the perfect way to get dinner on the table quickly and easily with recipes for tasty main dishes and flavorful side dishes, plus a sprinkling of sweet treats. The recipes in this book are made from scratch and each chapter conveniently separates them by cook time: 15–25-minute meals, 30–45-minute meals and 5–10-minute prep (meals cook on their own in the slow cooker or oven).
Looking for dinner ideas at the last minute? All your family will love Sweet Chipotle Chicken Bites, and they’re on the table―start to finish―in barely fifteen minutes. You probably have just five minutes now and you want dinner in a couple of hours, prep Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf and dinner will be ready when you’re. Want a delicious slow cooker meal you’ll be able to start now and have ready to eat tonight? Try Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork and pile the juicy pork into sandwiches, burritos or a tempting taco salad. With a couple of extra minutes but little effort, you’ll be able to wow your family or guests with Creamy Balsamic Skillet Chicken or Red Chile Beef Enchiladas.
Whatever your occasion, there is a recipe here that will help you get a fresh, great-tasting meal on the table very quickly. Each entrée provides notes for side dishes as well as tips for adapting the recipe. Many recipes are gluten-free or suggest gluten-free substitutions. With this cookbook, preparing a homemade meal can also be simple and stress-free, even on nights when you only have a couple of minutes to spare in the kitchen.
