Whenever a friend tells me she’s in a cooking rut, I have a dozen go-to recipes to share. These are the biggest crowd pleasers around, the ones with the least amount of complicated instruction you can possibly find. Trust me when I say that these will be keepers for your family too.
Don’t stop reading because of the veggie here. This is legit one of the best recipes I picked up while we lived in Italy — and it came from my international subscription to Food Network Magazine!
Sweet honey mingles with tangy mustard and a flavorful bite of fresh rosemary to transform everyday chicken.
This really is perfect. It's ready in a hurry, and it comes together with only a few ingredients. Sold.
This isn’t your average pork and apple pairing. There’s a secret ingredient at work here (you probably have it in your fridge right now), and it brings out all the tangy apple goodness!
This is my favorite dish to recommend to parents of picky eaters. If your kid like cheeseburgers — and whose doesn’t — there’s nothing but love for all the flavor of a cheeseburger nestled inside puff pastry.
Not one of my kids is a fish lover, but every single one of them loves this recipe. The secret is definitely the sauce. Thank you, Melissa d’Arabian!
This showstopper can be assembled entirely ahead of time, then trusted to cook politely all afternoon. The results are soft vegetables brimming with lemony flavor, the kind that you absolutely must serve with a loaf of crusty bread.
Make your own sauce or start with your favorite store-bought brand, but do call friends because this recipe make plenty of mouthwatering ‘cue to share!
Marinade your meat for at least two days — trust me — and you’ll ONLY have enough of this London Broil leftover to possibly squeeze out a couple of our favorite Roast Beef Sandwiches ever. Maybe.

If you haven’t added this one to your rotation yet, stop everything and pick up two things: prunes and olives. I know. I know. Just do it. You and your whole family will thank me.
