Pot Sticker Stir-Fry

by Coco Morante

Pot Sticker Stir Fry

I'm always on the hunt for new ways to get a healthy dinner on the table and fresh flavor combinations to keep things interesting. When a cookbook checks both of these boxes, it earns a special place in my heart.

Enter my friend Michelle Tam's latest release, Ready or Not!: 150+ Make-Ahead, Make-Over, and Make-Now Recipes by Nom Nom Paleo. It's geared toward all different kinds of meal prep situations — from meals that require some more advanced planning to emergency weeknight dinners.

 

Turkey Meatloaf

by Sally Vargas

Turkey Meatloaf

Ah, meatloaf…the American classic supper!

Despite her desperate five o'clock scramble, my mom – an artist and mother of four — always managed to pull off a mean meatloaf.

I remember her frantically pulling apart a slice or two of bread to make crumbs, and then throwing them into a bowl with an egg, some ketchup, grated onion, and ground beef. And then there was the grated carrot, which qualified as a vegetable (along with the ketchup).

She shaped it into a mound, threw it in the pan, drizzled the top with more ketchup and tossed it into the oven. Phew! Let's just say her motto was "I'd rather be painting."

Meal Plan for October Week 3

by Summer Miller

Meal Plan for October Wk 3

Welcome to our new series of weekly meal plans! This month, Summer Miller will be sharing with us what meal planning looks like in her house. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.

Life is busy. Leftovers are nice.

Eating leftovers wasn't at the top of my “to do” list when I was a single 20-something. Now that I'm feeding a family of four, and doing so three times a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, I welcome the opportunity to double up a dish so I can freeze some for later or pack it up for lunches the next day.

Sesame-Crusted Pork Cutlets with Crispy Shallots

by Sally Vargas

Sesame-Crusted Pork Cutlets with Crispy Shallots

I love these crunchy, sesame-coated pork chops, and placing them the on top of a fresh spinach salad turns them into a complete meal.

I sometimes make an extra chop just to have for lunch the next day. Heaven!

5 Cookbooks for People Who Always Need More Ideas for Dinner

by Carrie Havranek

5 Cookbooks for People Who Need Dinner Ideas

Dinner. It's an inescapable occurrence, 365 days of the year.

Many of us have our go-to moves when all else fails — template meals that are easy and easily adaptable. Tacos. Egg scrambles. Pasta. Soup. And then there are the nights when it's more about desperate calls for take-out. (It’s ok. You’re among friends. We understand.)

Yes, dinner. If we don't plan it properly, it sneaks up on us at 4pm — or, yikes, later! — and we are faced with the perennial question: "What are we eating?"

Because we all get tired of the same-old same-old, I thought I’d share five favorite cookbooks for those of us who could always use more ideas for dinner.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

by Elise Bauer

Pumpkin Gingerbread

This pumpkin gingerbread is one of our favorite treats for fall!

We almost always have extra pumpkin sitting around this time of year, either puréed and in cans, or fresh. Two of my favorite sweet quick breads are pumpkin bread and gingerbread.

This recipe started as an experiment to combine the two. The result? A tender, richly flavored loaf—spicy, molasses-y, and pumpkin-y. 

Pressure Cooker Saag Tofu (Indian Spinach and Tofu)

by Coco Morante

Pressure Cooker Saag Tofu

A few weeks ago, I was digging into a meal of saag paneer at one of my favorite Indian restaurants (Zareen’s in Palo Alto!), when it occurred to me that the texture of the soft fresh paneer cheese in the dish was very similar to the texture of extra-firm tofu.

I decided there and then to come up with a vegan riff on this dish so that everyone can enjoy it, even if you’re eating dairy-free.

Pumpkin Chili

by Aaron Hutcherson

Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin and chili: two things we all crave every fall. This recipe combines them into one dish. It’s the best of both worlds!

The pumpkin provides some natural sweetness, which plays well with the different spices. If you aren't able to find fresh pumpkin, then butternut squash, acorn squash, or any other hard squash would be good substitutes.

Meal Plan for October Week 2

October Wk 2 Meal Plan

Welcome to our new series of weekly meal plans! This month, Summer Miller will be sharing with us what meal planning looks like in her house. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.

Summer is definitively over, and now we find ourselves squarely in the throes of fall. It's time to trade in our swimsuits for sweatshirts and swap out our grills for slow cookers.

To help you warm up to the cooler temps, I’ve put together some of fall favorites. Most are easy meals you can get on the table in about an hour, and the one that isn't is a slow cooker recipe where the crockpot does the heavy lifting for you.

Caramel Apple Monkey Bread

by Cindy Rahe

Caramel Apple Monkey Bread

In the category of “Not Terribly Beautiful Baked Goods That Taste Amazing,” this Caramel Apple Monkey Bread is a clear winner!

No, this may not the prettiest dessert in the galaxy, but what it lacks in presentation, it more than makes up for in sticky, gooey, pull-apart deliciousness.

5 Small Ways to Add Big Flavor to Any Recipe

by Carrie Havranek

If you cook frequently, you may find yourself hitting a proverbial wall—you want to improve your dishes, but sometimes, after adding more salt and pepper, it's not always clear what to try next.

Improving our cooking skills is always admirable task, but will that effort pay off in a better tasting dish? Here's five tiny tips that can make a huge flavor difference.

Chicken Enchiladas Verdes

by Elise Bauer

Chicken Enchiladas Verdes

Do you ever cook with tomatillos? They look like little lanterns, with their green papery husks.

Sometimes people mistake them for green tomatoes (doesn’t help that their Spanish name is “tomate verde”); they are nightshades, like eggplants and peppers, and therefore distant cousins of tomatoes, but the taste is quite different.

The tomatillos I grow in my garden here in Northern California ripen in September and October, but most of the tomatillos we get from the market come all year round from Mexico. When my tomatillos are ripe, I make a large batch of Mexican salsa verde, perfect for tortilla chips, great with eggs, and awesome in these enchiladas!

Creamy Potatoes with Cheese and Tomatoes

by Elise Bauer

New Potatoes with Cheese and Tomatoes

This recipe for creamy potatoes with cheese and tomatoes is adapted from one we found in Sunset Magazine years ago, and is inspired by a classic dish in Colombian cooking—papas chorreadas.

Potatoes are boiled in salted water, then smothered in a sauce made with fresh tomatoes, onions, cream, and cheese. So good!

 

Parker House Rolls

by Sheryl Julian

Parker House Rolls

One day in Home Ec class when I was younger, we learned to make Parker House rolls. As they came out of the oven, we grabbed the hot rolls off the baking sheets even though the teacher protested that we'd burn ourselves.

Of course they were too hot to eat, but that didn't stop us. Tender, buttery rolls with a hint of sweetness shaped like puffy half-moons – who can wait? They looked like Pac-Man, and they were delicious!

Pressure Cooker Butternut Squash Soup

by Coco Morante

Winter squashes are my favorite vegetables to cook with during the cold weather months. They're so hearty and sweet, and especially well-suited to making delicious, comforting soups!

How to Cook a Whole Butternut Squash in the Pressure Cooker

by Coco Morante

Pressure Cooker Butternut Squash Soup

Do you hate peeling and chopping raw, hard butternut squash? Here’s another way: cut it into quarters and steam it in the pressure cooker!
