This easy weeknight meal comes together in one skillet, which means it’s super easy to make and clean up afterwards! Think of it as the grown-up take on the chicken casseroles you ate growing up — with no cream of mushroom soup in sight.
Yes, you can make creamy, dreamy sherbet (in a perfect millennial pink hue) with only two ingredients — watermelon and sweetened condensed milk — and without an ice cream maker. But act fast, because summer is almost over!
This method turns ordinary sweet potatoes into rich, caramelized morsels of heaven on a sheet pan. After you roast the sweet potato rounds with butter and salt for about 40 minutes, you’ll have a melt-in-your-mouth side dish everyone is sure to fight over.
If you think sad, dry, and bland when you think pork chops, this recipe is here to change all that. With zesty lime and bright cilantro, this quick skillet meal is basically a party in your mouth. Serve with rice or quinoa to round things out!
Having a good, go-to dressing recipe up your sleeve is the key to never being bored in the kitchen. And this two-ingredient — miso paste and fresh citrus juice — flavor powerhouse is a strong contender. You can play around with the miso paste and citrus varieties so you never get bored, either. Win-win!
Another roasted sweet potato recipe! This time with a coating of garlic and Parmesan — a combination you can’t possibly go wrong with. If you’re feeling extra fancy, sprinkle on some fresh chopped herbs right before serving.
Anything with French in the title is usually a winner in our book. The fact that this recipe also comes together in 30 minutes in one skillet makes it even better. At the end you’ll be left with crispy-skinned chicken swimming in a creamy, mustardy sauce.
This recipe is a total classic for a reason. It’s the simplest bread to bake at home, and it requires no stand mixer, no starter, no special knowledge, and, as the name implies, no kneading.
PSA: Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. And this salad is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser that should be on your holiday table. The key is the nutty brown butter dressing that really takes these simple ingredients over the top.
This soup is like a warm hug in a bowl. It takes a little effort upfront because you’re making your own enchilada sauce, but it’s totally worth it. After you’ve made your sauce, you just add corn, beans, and chicken and let the slow cooker do the rest of the work. Don’t forget lots of sour cream, avocado, and tortilla chips for serving!
