Skillet Meals

I love the versatility that comes with skillets. They are the do-it-all pan that can move effortlessly from the stovetop to the oven. Whether you're in the mood for a stir-fry or a cheesy chicken dinner nestled on veggies, all you need is a single skillet to bring it to life.

Sheet Pan Suppers

Arm yourself with a sheet pan and 30 minutes and getting dinner on the table will feel like a snap. As an added bonus, cleanup is just as easy. You can go as simple as meal of meat and potatoes or make a party out of it with colorful fajitas.

One Pot Wonders

A lot can happen in a single pot. Freezer shortcuts and pantry ingredients are the secret to bringing soup, curries, and quick braises to the table fast.

The Power of Pantry Ingredients

From canned beans and tomatoes, to dried pasta and a jar of curry paste, your pantry holds the solution to quick and easy dinners. Keep things simple with tacos, a one-pan pasta or a sauté of veggies, beans, and shrimp.
