Popular Quick and Easy Recipes

There's definitely a place for multi-hour braises and slow-simmered soups, but sometimes you just need a quick and easy recipe to get dinner on the table. But fast doesn't have to mean skimping on flavor - sometimes it's just a matter of using time-cutting techniques and ingredients. (Simply buying meat and produce pre-cut will save you a huge chunk of time, for example.) There are hundreds of easy chicken recipes you can make in less than 30 minutes, as well as beef, pork, pasta, or whatever else your family likes. Making the most of tools like your microwave and slow cooker can also speed things up. Even if you've had a long day, it's worth a few minutes at the stove to avoid eating dinner out of a box, isn't it?
