Chicken Breasts

Boneless, skinless chicken breast is an easy and filling dinner. Cubing or slicing the breast into thin strips takes away the worry of over- or undercooking it (the "cut a little piece and peek" method often leads to drying out the meat). Or, cook the breasts on the grill like in this easy Mustard-Lime Chicken recipe pictured at left.



Fish is healthy and, depending on what type of fish you buy, can be on the less expensive side of proteins. For cooking seafood like scallops or fish fillets, check out this chef’s tips for perfectly cooking fish (it’s basically foolproof). Fish, however, is very versatile and can also be baked in foil packets or cooked in a skillet, like this tilapia recipe or this salmon recipe.



Bacon is a perfect side dish for breakfast on the weekends or can be crumbled and added to salads, sandwiches, or even vegetables like this Brussels sprouts dish with bacon. For tips on making bacon, check out this how-to recipe.

Though one of the easier foods to make, it is possible to overcook pasta, ending up with a hot, gummy mess. To improve your pasta-making skills, check out the advice of TDM’s editorial director, Colman Andrews, in his piece "What to Know When Cooking Pasta." To serve this simple dish, forget the sauce, and keep it easy: Toss it with butter and freshly grated cheese or make a cacio e pepe dish, pictured at left. For a more rounded out meal, try topping the noodles with a fried egg like in this Spicy Garlic Pasta with Fried Eggs recipe. Or, make this quick-cooking sauce served with pasta in this Spaghetti with Crushed Cherry Tomato Sauce recipe.



Fluffy and hearty or thin and crispy, pancakes are a brunch special. Popular blogger Joy the Baker shares her tips for making perfect pancakes, but feel free to be creative with the toppings used and the mixed-in ingredients, maybe adding blueberries both on top and inside like this Honey Oat and Blueberry Pancakes recipe.

Slow Cooker/Crock-Pot

A favorite childhood dessert, cookies are probably one of the easier baked goods to make. Check out these tips for making perfect cookie dough and take a gander at this delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe from New York City’s Milk & Cookies bakery.

Steamed Vegetables


Choose whatever vegetables you like broccoli, carrots, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, or green beans and place in a steamer basket above boiling water. Close the lid and let cook until theyve softened to your desired level of doneness (some prefer vegetables on the crisper side while others may enjoy them softer).


Here is one vegetable that’s packed full of nutrients and vitamins and is unbelievably easy to make. Drizzle the beets with oil, wrap them in foil, and roast in the oven. Once tender, simply slip off the skin, cut up, and serve with crumbled goat cheese or fresh herbs like in the roasted beets recipe pictured at left.

Fried Egg


Nutritious and filling, a fried egg is one of the easier things to make. Here’s how it goes: Heat a heavy pan (preferably cast iron) over high heat. Once hot, add a little oil and gently crack a room temperature egg as close to the cooking surface as possible so that it doesn’t spread out too much. Turn the heat down to medium-high, and once the edges have started to brown and curl, and the egg whites are just set, your work is done. From there, put the egg on top of wild rice, pasta, or just serve it on its own with some toast.

20 Easy Summer Dinner Recipes

When the weather warms up, it's only natural to want to spend less time in the kitchen. So check out these streamlined summer dinner recipes whether you're eating in the backyard, having a picnic on the lawn, or just gathering around the dining room table. Designed to keep you cool, these quick and easy summer dinner recipes that rely mostly on pantry staples will give you more time to enjoy lazy days and take full advantage of the season and all that summer has to offer. Recipes with short ingredient lists and very little prep ensure that dinner will be ready in 45 minutes or less.

Foil-Wrapped Fish


  • 1 pound skinned and boned fish
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the fish in the center of a sheet of aluminum foil.
  2. Place the onions and seasonings on top of the fish.
  3. Fold the aluminum foil up around the fish to seal.
  4. Place the packet on a grate or in the ashes at the edge of the fire.
  5. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.
  6. Use care opening the packet.

3. Apples

An apple a day may keep your waistline at bay.

Apples are rich in antioxidants — specifically, polyphenols — dietary fiber, carotenoids and other nutrients, and a review published April 2018 in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition revealed that these micronutrients promote anti-obesity effects.

A medium-sized apple has about 95 calories, per the USDA, and provides the filling soluble fiber pectin, which, according to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, may keep you fuller longer, so you won't feel the need to reach for something else (with a ton of calories).

Sip on this Golden Delicious Green Juice Smoothie if you’re looking for a fiber-rich snack. Or try one of these 8 other healthy apple snacks.

Using hearty kale (and collard!) leaves as wraps is a winning idea right now, and all the better that these dark green leaves score high on fiber and Vitamin C. Add chicken breast and squash for a kale wrap that's fresh and filling.

The patties in these crowd-pleasing 'shroom burgers are packed with lots of tasty (and good-for-you) ingredients: Greek yogurt, mushrooms and edamame. Plus, the cayenne pepper's surprising kick makes it so much better than your average backyard burger.

Plain Yogurt

It’s loaded with calcium, high-quality protein, and probiotics -- bacteria that are good for your gut and may be linked to healthier cholesterol levels. People who eat yogurt are less likely to be obese or have heart disease, and full-fat yogurt is better for that than low-fat. Eat it with fruit or granola, or use it instead of sour cream to lighten up desserts and stews.

Easy Recipes That Kids Can Make

Whether you’re looking for an extra set of hands to help you meal prep or have a little one that loves to help in the kitchen, these simple, family-friendly recipes are the perfect way to get your kids cooking.

Get the Kids Involved

From breakfast to dinner (and all the meals and snacks in between), these easy recipes are perfect for kids who are ready to get their hands dirty in the kitchen &mdash with a little bit of grown-up supervision, of course!

Sloppy Joe Sliders

This is the perfect sloppy joe for little hands but with a flavor both kids and adults will love. For little kids: Let them measure out the vegetables. For big kids: Help them stir the meat and assemble the sliders.

Crunchy Breakfast Tacos

Add some crunch to your morning with these egg-filled breakfast tacos. Both little and big kids can help measure, and big kids can help scramble the eggs.

Taco Cheeseburger

Here are two things children (and adults!) love, in a fun little package. For little kids: Let them help tear the cheese and measure the salsa. For big kids: Let them help shape and season the beef patties and shred the lettuce. Everyone can assemble his or her own taco. The generous amount of taco seasoning on the burgers, plus cooking them in a cast-iron skillet, gives them a crispy, flavorful crust.

Waldorf Chicken Boats

Turn kids on to salad with this one that's fun to assemble and eat. For little and big kids: Let them whisk the dressing and scoop it into the lettuce leaves or cups.

Pizza Skewers

In this mash-up recipe, pizza meets kebabs on the grill. For little kids: Let them dump the ingredients into the bowl, stir them up and tear the basil leaves over the skewers. For big kids: Let them measure out the ingredients, roll out the dough and thread the skewers.

Baked Tofu Tenders

These tofu tenders are crisp on the outside and creamy inside. Serve with the sweet and spicy sauce in this recipe or with any condiment you have on hand. For both little and big kids: Let them help measure and bread the tofu (make sure they use separate hands for the wet and dry ingredients when breading, so little fingers don't get breaded themselves).

Roasted Turkey and Basil Cream Cheese Pinwheel Sandwiches

These colorful pinwheels can be made in the morning and kept chilled for an easy lunch or afternoon snack. For little kids: Let them wash and spin-dry the lettuce. For big kids: Let them layer the ingredients and roll up the sandwiches.

Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

This all-in-one milk-and-cookies smoothie makes a nice change of pace for a summer breakfast or afternoon snack. For little kids: Let them help press the buttons on the blender. (Be sure to let it run for a full minute before you add the ice, so the oatmeal-and-raisin mixture gets as smooth as possible.) For big kids: Let them measure the ingredients &mdash it's the perfect time to teach them the difference between wet- and dry-ingredient measuring cups.

Cheese Fondue

As an appetizer or main dish, this cheese fondue is a fun and interactive meal your little ones can help with. For both little and big kids: Let them help shred the cheese and stir it into the simmering apple juice, and choose and help prep all the dippers.

Raspberry and Cream Cheese Brownie Bites

Who doesn't love the classic combo of chocolate and raspberry? Add some sweetened cream cheese and you have the perfect dressed-up bite-sized brownies. For little and big kids: Let them help measure, mix and fill. For a bittersweet grown-up version, use strawberry jam or orange marmalade.

Watermelon Split

Cool chunks of watermelon topped with ice cream make a perfect split for the dog days of summer. For little kids: Let them help mash the berries with sugar. For big kids: Let them measure the ingredients. Everyone can pitch in to build the sundaes.

Ricotta, Blueberry and Grape Toasts

These pretty toasts are simple to make. For little and big kids: Let them help measure and spread the ricotta on the bread. For big kids: Let them cut the grapes in half.

Homemade Bread

Nothing smells better and is more fun and messy than making fresh bread with your kids. Both big and little ones get to measure all the ingredients and squish them together in a resealable bag. Let them take turns kneading the dough, then practice patience as they wait for it to rise, bake and cool.

Mini Lasagna Cups

These genius little lasagna cups are made with a surprise ingredient: ravioli! They fit perfectly into muffin tin cups and add an extra bonus pocket of cheese. Little kids can help measure the ingredients and big kids can help make the sauce. Both can help fill the cups.

Chocolate-Marshmallow Mug Cakes

Kids will love these copycat mug cakes, which are made in the microwave instead of the oven.

Chicken Nuggets

Prepare the breading in a plastic bag, then cut chicken breasts into bite-size pieces. Once the chicken is in the bag, have the kids shake it up until every piece is coated and ready to be fried.

Black-and-White Spotted Animal Cookies

What is black and white and sweet all over? These chocolate and vanilla cookies. Plus, this is the perfect baking project for kids &mdash let them help drop and roll out the dough. Then dunk in a tall glass of cold milk.

Apple Granola Stackers

As Ree says, these apple stackers &ldquoare so much fun to make and even more fun to eat.&rdquo Core and slice an apple into rings and let the kids top decorate each slice with peanut butter, granola and a cinnamon-sugar topping. Once the slices are finished, stack &lsquoem up and snack away!

What's an Heirloom Tomato?

Those funny-shaped, weirdly colored varieties are heirloom tomatoes, grown from seeds passed down for generations and prized for distinctive flavors. "Mortgage Lifter" is one large, beefsteak type with a spicy, less acidic flavor. "Green Zebra" is golf-ball size. It's both sweet and tart in flavor, with a hint of citrus. Find heirloom tomatoes at the farmers' market, or try growing your own.

This is the perfect treat for Thanksgiving, but it's so good, you'll want to make it again and again throughout the entire year.
