So, I thought I had shared 5 of my favorite dinner recipes, oh, a few weeks ago. Maybe a month or two, max. I thought maybe I’d make it a monthly or every-other-month regular thing.
Turns out, it’s been six months since I wrote that post. Whoops!
So here I am again, 6 months later, with 5 more of our favorite dinner recipes. I mentioned in my previous 5 recipes post that while I enjoy cooking, I get bored repeating recipes and would much rather try something new than repeat something I’ve made before. So a recipe only makes the repeat list of it’s really tasty, quick and simple to make, and a crowd-pleaser. With that criteria in mind, here are 5 recent favorites that are delicious enough to make again and again. (And, in case you are the suspicious type, this post isn’t sponsored or anything, and the people who wrote the recipe don’t know me . . . just dishes I love and think you might like, too.)
These tacos are quick and easy to pull together, and really delicious. If you don’t like the taste of Ranch dressing, you might need to keep moving, but these are always a big hit at our house. Even a certain picky someone who refuses to eat meat of any kind unless it comes in a hot dog package gobbles this up. Find the recipe HERE.
I know, chicken and rice soup sounds about as boring as it gets. But this recipe is a real keeper, and I’ve probably made it a dozen times this winter alone. I can’t put my finger on what exactly sets it apart from other chicken soups, but something about it is just so perfect and so delicious. Plus, it’s quite healthy, and makes for absolutely divine leftovers the next day. Find the recipe HERE.
You probably don’t need one specific recipe for this favorite—almost every recipe I’ve seen for German Pancakes is nearly identical—but this is the perfect last minute “the fridge is completely empty!” meal. It’s quick, it hardly requires any ingredients, and it tastes great. We like it best topped with butter, lemon juice, and powdered sugar. Toss together a fruit salad for a side dish, and you’ve got dinner on the table in like 20 minutes, tops. Perfect.
Another no-brainer here: quick and simple, you probably have all the ingredients in your fridge right now, and everyone always loves it. We rarely ever have leftovers of BBQ Chicken Pizza. If you’re feeling ambitious and have a little more time on your hands, you can step it up by making homemade pizza crust, but even on store bought dough/crust, this one is a favorite. Find the recipe HERE.
I can’t say enough good things about this soup. It is absolute perfection. Smooth and creamy and savory and just a tad spicy—delicious. The soup itself is delicious, but top it with some sour cream, avocado, lime juice, and cilantro, and you’ll be in heaven. It makes a lot, which I didn’t mind at all—I was perfectly happy to eat it for lunch every day all week before it finally ran out. This one will be getting repeated very often. Find the recipe HERE.
