You'll find speedy 5-Ingredient Favorites like Bacon & Cheddar Chicken and Melinda's Mexican Manicotti, plus Virgil's Veggie Fettuccine, Deep-Dish Skillet Pizza and other tasty One-Dish Dinners. On chilly days, warm 'em up with recipes from Soup's On! like Tom's Chili Con Carne and Hearty Healthy Minestrone. Slow-cooker recipes like Beef Tips & Noodles and Easy Cheesy Enchiladas can't be beat for cook-all-day convenience. We've even included easy crowd-pleasers like Italian Hamburger Mac, Luau Baked Beans and Old-Fashioned Butterscotch Bars...they make extra-large servings so they're perfect to share with friends or tote to a last-minute potluck or bake sale.
Many dishes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, using familiar pantry ingredients.
The latest crowd-sourced salvo from the folks at Gooseberry Patch (101 Hearty Recipes) focuses on meals that can be prepped in minutes. Armed with a trusty can opener, a sharp knife, and little else, harried cooks will be able to whip up Cheesy Black Bean Soup, Best-Ever Shredded Beef Tacos, and a Quick & Easy Italian Slaw in no time. Expected fare like meatballs, chili, stuffed peppers, and Foolproof Potato Soup dominates. Diversions from classics range from the serviceable (chicken breaded with crushed pretzels) to the terrifying: cream of mushroom soup is employed with abandon incorporated into everything from Spaghetti Amore to Chicken Corn Chowder and Lemonade Chicken is an unholy union of chicken thighs, a can of frozen lemonade concentrate, brown sugar, catsup, and balsamic vinegar. Hutchins and Martin have clearly found their niche, so those already familiar with the brand will likely find a lot to like here. Those watching their caloric and/or salt intake there s a lot of bouillon and processed cheese in these recipes as well as those with an aversion to overly processed foods like Velveeta and bottled salad dressing, will likely want to give this one wide berth.
