These are the recipes that I make on repeat. They are crowd-pleasers!
Enchiladas – This recipe is the best! It is most certainly a weekend meal as it takes a while to prep, but it is easy to double so that you can enjoy it on a weeknight later. I like to swap the ground beef for poached chicken; a shredded rotisserie could also work in a pinch.
Big Mac Salad – You can find this recipe in our beach vacation meal plan and boat food, and for a good reason. It’s easy to make a big crowd-pleaser. Half the meat will do. I use the other half to make burgers in the same pan for my boys. If you aren’t on the Keto diet, use regular sugar and taste as you go, I find that about half the amount works for my family.
Cheeseburger Helper – You won’t find any preservatives in this homemade version of Hamburger Helper. It’s easy to double, uses ingredients you may have on hand, and everyone in the family will love it.
Penne Ala Vodka – This recipe from Serious Eats comes together in less than 30 minutes.
Granola Bars – Are you looking for a kid-friendly snack? Look no further. Granola bars are so easy to make and delicious. To make them nut-free, omit the almonds and replace them with equal parts Rice Krispies.
Fancy Pants Chicken – This is THE recipe to impress guests. No one will know that it came together in MINUTES. I’m not exaggerating. It’s that easy. If you can’t find the garlic and herb seasoning, substitute an Italian dressing mix.
Creamy Italian Salad Dressing I have tried so many creamy Italian dressings, and this is my favorite. I almost always have the ingredients on hand plus, it’s easy to make and delicious! Be sure to use Duke’s Mayo.
Potato Salad – Bring this to any potluck and it will be gone in a jiffy. The secret is in marinating the potatoes while they are hot. Don’t worry about the pickle juice being overpowering, it just adds a tang.
