No Recipe Required + Simple Side Dish(es) = Easy Dinner!

Sometimes you just want to cook without having to put a lot of thought into it.  Or any thought into it.

A while back I wrote a series on No Recipe Required ideas.  Simple things to do with chicken, fish, beef or ground beef.  I may add to this series in the future and cover smoked sausage, ham, pork chops, etc.  But for now, this seems like a good time to show off these posts again.  Sometimes the good stuff gets buried on the blog.

Resolutionize Your Kitchen and Cooking: 25 Meals in 20 Minutes or Less

25 meals in 20 minutes or less

Resolutionize: verb Enacting a mini revolution on your New Year’s Resolution. Small action with big impact.

I like eating out, but not when it means an unplanned trip through the drive-thru for so-so food that is expensive.  I know I can make much better food at home for less money.  And a good meal doesn’t have to take a long time to fix.

Here are a few tips for super quick meals:

  • Keep a list of quick meals and recipes inside your pantry door or near your calendar.
  • Keep the ingredients for those meals in your pantry and fridge.
  • A freezer stocked with cooked chicken and hamburger helps speed dinner to the table.
  • Pasta and egg dishes are often fast meals.  As a bonus, they’re inexpensive too.

And now for the list of 25 meals that can be made in 20 minutes or less.  I’ve also added a list of quick side dishes to round out your meal.   As a bonus, if you subscribe by email to Eat at Home you will have access to 5 more meals that can be fixed in 15 minutes.  These 5 meals have printable recipes that include several variations on each meal to take into account what you may have available in your pantry.
