Favorite quick fix meal?

I’m looking to experiment in the kitchen and while Pinterest has been my main source of inspiration – I’d love to hear your favorite meals!

  1. Pinterest is my main source, too, along with a few Williams Sonoma cookbooks. My favorite quick fix is a homemade pizza. On weeknights, I suggest getting whole wheat dough from Publix, Whole Foods or a grocery store near you. (If you aren’t sure if they sell it, ask someone in the bakery.) Here’s one of my favorite recipes: http://www.pauladeen.com/recipes/recipe_view/smoked_gouda_and_sweet_potato_pizza/

  2. One of our favorite quick meals is Red Lentil Tacos. And if you are in a real pinch you can substitute the spice mixture for a taco seasoning packet. Looking forward to hearing other quick fix recipes from others.

  3. I love buying rotisserie chicken from the store and using it in a number of quick meals. You can shred it up for chicken salad or add it to low-sodium chicken broth with baby spinach and tortellini for a quick and hearty soup. It’s great added to pasta salads with fresh veggies like broccoli, carrots, peas and corn with a light dressing of olive oil, white wine vinegar and grated parmesan to finish it off. Or for a more filling pasta, add the chicken to penne with sliced sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and a splash of warmed heavy cream and parmesan. And who doesn’t love chicken quesadillas with some sliced roasted red pepper, cilantro and a side of fresh guacamole?!

    1. I do this too, use the breast part for a fettucini Alfredo. I add peas, broccoli, and carrots and my little ladies eat it up.

    2. I took your advice and made chicken quesadillas last night with a store bought rotisserie chicken. Delish and SO easy!

  4. Stir fry! I always have veggies on hand and it takes less than 30 minutes from prep to chow time! Sometimes I take the “breakfast for dinner” route, too, and omelets are tasty any time of the day. 🙂

    2. Natalie – in general, corn, peas and carrots go over well. But with stir fry, snow peas and even small pieces of broccoli are good.

  5. My favorite meals are usually the simple ones. The food that is light and fresh, not the heavier comfort foods. For example, I am in love with my spicy arugula and shrimp pasta and my black bean and avocado salsa right now. Both are super easy to make but taste amazing.
