Everyone’s favorite – steak – goes ‘round the world in three completely different fast dinners for the week. Sunday’s Jamaican Jerk Flank Steak morphs into Steak Fajitas with Fresh Guacamole later in the week and then turns into an all American Philly Cheese Steak. With easy, clever sides, and an Angel Food dessert – divine!
In this half-hour, host Robin Miller (nutritionist, author and host of Quick Fix Meals) meets with two families. First is Madeline, a single mother of two who is also a full-time student and has no time to cook properly for her kids, one of which is a very picky eater and was recently diagnosed with asthma. She is concerned that she is hurting them by what she cooks. Robin helps her fill the pantry with her "10 must-have" staples, and cooks a delicious chicken tender that introduces healthy alternatives and is a dish even the pickiest eater will love.
She then meets with Mike, a father of two who has poor eating and snacking habits, has gained 40 pounds and is concerned that hes being a poor role model for his kids. They go to the store to show Mike new food choices, and they create new snacking and sauce options to inspire Mike to lose weight and change his habits.
Eaten one too many burgers? If you think beyond the bun, you can create quick and easy dinners for the week using ground beef as your base. We’ll kick things off with a simple Beef and Cheese Lasagna, followed by some tasty Tacos. Midway through the week, move onto some super easy Sloppy Joes and sides. Be sure to save room for dessert?
A little chicken goes a long way when it comes to dishing up quick and easy meals. On Sunday, make a fast and simple stir-fried chicken and vegetable dish you can stretch into a Stew with Parsley Dumplings for another time. Later in the week, leftover chicken finds its way into Stuffed Squash and Herbed Goat Cheese.
Its the week after Thanksgiving and weve got leftovers. With a little imagination and some very simple ingredients, you can turn your leftovers into quick and creative dishes your family will love. Well start off with a quick and easy turkey soup that cleans out the fridge! Later in the week, well whip up a frittata. Then, well put those leftover sweet potatoes into a delicious pasta dish, and finish things off with a perfectly easy pumpkin parfait.
If you have pre-cooked chicken on hand, it’s even easier. Sunday’s Garlic-Lime Chicken Breasts with Olives become a Mexican-inspired main course the next day. Later, they make their way onto a Caesar Salad.
The holidays are a time for elegant and festive meals. Does that mean fussy recipes that take a bunch of time? No way. You can put together colorful holiday meals that will be ready in a flash. How? By starting with pre-prepared ingredients like honey baked ham and fully-cooked turkey breasts, then sprucing them up at home. So whether you're cooking for surprise visitors or your favorite elves, get a little help. It's a quick fix for the holidays.
Even the short order cook loves breakfast food at dinnertime. Why? Because it’s tasty, heartwarming and so simple to put together. You can have breakfast any time of day in a flash. Inexpensive and easy eggs are the basis of these menus that offer great nutrition and a reason to get in your pajamas.
It starts slow but finishes fast! The slow cooker is your friend when it comes to all day flavor that takes no time at all. Beef brisket slow cooked in a slow cooker works into 2 healthy, quick and delicious meals. We’ll also make Jambalaya that your friend the slow cooker will take care of for you while you’re busy doing something else.
A delicious sauce featuring tangy tomatoes and salty olives becomes the base for three totally different quick fix dinners. Italian Pasta Puttanesca one night, Chicken with a tasty tomato chutney the next, and a crabmeat salad with a fresh and easy presentation trick. And save room for soup -- a little extra Puttanesca sauce is the base for a no-sweat soup n’ sandwich meal.
There’s nothing like a little comfort food to pick up your spirits at the end of a long day. With some solid prep ahead strategies over the weekend, you can create three warm, and delicious meals that are easy to serve up during the week.
Healthy food does not mean bland and boring. It can be delicious and fast! Everybody loves fried chicken, and we will fake it in the oven. Barbecue-Roasted Salmon, hearty Pasta with Roasted Vegetables, a take on Mashed Potatoes and a simple salad with a fabulous light dressing are all good for you and good for your schedule.
Quick fix dinners are in the bag when you use your pal, the resealable plastic bag. I’ll show you how to make dinner a snap by putting prepped ingredients for three different entrees in a tidy bag and then refrigerating it till it’s ready to be cooked and eaten. Get this all done on Sunday so weekday dinners are a matter of opening a bag and throwing in an easy side dish.
