10 Quick Dinner Ideas

Some nights the last thing you want to do when coming home is make dinner. What do you do those nights that you just want to pour a glass of wine and binge watch Gilmore Girls on Netflix? 

Ridiculously Easy Chicken Fajitas

You are not going to believe how easy this is. I almost couldn't believe it myself when I created it years ago. Anytime I ask Collin what he wants for dinner he always says fajitas. This recipe is ridiculously delicious, easy and quick.

Hibachi at Home

Who doesn't love hibachi?  It's a dinner experience.  I always like to have an arsenal of delicious foods that I can make at home and this is by far one of the best 'copy cat' dinners out there.  Amazingly simple it can be whipped up during the week or weekend for a quick, yummy, and fun meal.

Meat and Potatoes

Every now and then I look in my pantry and I have an exorbitant amount of potatoes sitting on the shelf.  Now when this happens I do a little happy dance because I absolutely love potatoes.  Mashed.  Fried.  Roasted.  You name it, I'll eat it.  

Fried Pickles

I've been fighting off a cold this weekend but I didn't want to miss the chance to share these delectable little pickles with you.  Easy, quick, and oh so good.  

Sautéed Tilapia with Capers

Tilapia is a staple fish in our household.  Not only is it relatively inexpensive it is quite delicious if you prepare it in the way I am about to share with you.  This dish is deliciously tangy with the hit of capers you get with each mouthful.  I often make this during the week for a healthy and flavorful end to the day.  

Zesty Spaghetti Sauce

Holy cow!  This spaghetti sauce is without a doubt the best I have ever made.  Collin thinks so too - although he is probably a bit biased.  I have been searching for new ways to make spaghetti as it is my all time favorite comfort food.  And I think I've finally found it.  

Mini Stuffed Peppers

Nachos without tortilla chips??  Strange but surprisingly delicious concept.  This is a fun take on a classically tasty meal.  I have made Collin quite a few variations of stuffed peppers but this may be the tastiest.  

Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

You will find as you read many of my recipe posts that I LOVE pasta.  I think part of me deep down must be Italian.  At least, I like to think I am.  This recipe is a favorite in my house.  The roasted red pepper flavor, Italian sausage, and salty Parmesan makes this an ultimate pasta meal for any day of the week.

Chicken Chow Mein

Noodles are my favorite.  Italian, Asian, any kind will do.  I simply love the darn things.  When I get in the mood for Asian food I always want to recreate a lo mein recipe.  I created this recipe and Collin calls it a "keeper."  

Chocolate Chip Toffee Crunch Cookies

Cookies are one of my all time favorite desserts.  Soft, gooey, and sometimes crunchy, they are the ultimate treat.  My favorite type of cookie is chocolate chip, of course.  That sweet smell, sugary taste, and gooey texture make any day that much better.  I wanted to put a little twist on my old favorite by adding toffee to the mix.  Here is how it went...

Cheeseburger Salad

Who doesn't love a good cheeseburger?  Exactly, we all do!  But sometimes I want a burger without feeling that - ugh - feeling.  I absolutely love looking up recipes and tweaking them to become my own creation.  I give you...the cheeseburger salad.
