You deserve more than leftover pasta at the end of a long day.
1. One-Pan Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders With Green Beans
Nothing unites a home like a platter full of crispy, juicy chicken tenders. Pair with lightly salted green beans and tender tomatoes for a balanced meal. Recipe here.
2. Slow Cooker Pork with Cuban-Style Black Beans
Cook the pulled pork in a crock pot for 8-10 hours (i.e. while you’re at work) for moist and buttery strands. If you have leftovers, stuff them into corn tortillas and take them to lunch the next day. Recipe here.
3. BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza
The only thing you’ll have to clean up is a cookie sheet and the crumbs off the dinner table. Recipe here.
4. Strawberry Bacon Salad
Like most memorable meals, this salad has the perfect balance of sweet and salty. Recipe here.
5. Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta
Use a flat (or textured) pasta like fettuccine to load the most creamy, thick flavor in every forkful. Recipe here.
6. Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili
You can hate on Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but you can’t touch pumpkin chili. Recipe here.
7. Pizza Margherita Grilled Cheese
The classic grilled cheese sandwich and its combination of simple ingredients is uncommonly easy to elevate to a gourmet meal. For this version, use thick slices of crusty sourdough bread and fresh mozzarella, and pair with tomato soup for an even richer dinner. Recipe here.
