Dinner Recipes so Delicious, Your Partner Won’t Leave You
Love to eat but hate to cook? I find cooking cathartic.
After a long day at work, getting in the kitchen is fun and exciting. Even if it's tiny and lacks a dishwasher. It seems to me that many people in my life either hate to cook or are just not confident in the kitchen. I was lucky enough to grow up with parents who loved to cook thus teaching me some valuable go-to recipes. Some couples might argue about food (or let's be honest, clean up) but let me tell you, these simple recipes will have your partner gushing.
So now it's my turn to teach. Below are some of the easiest go-to recipes, some of which I prepare religiously. Cooking doesn't have to be daunting but let's start with some easy steps. Your partner will think you ordered in, it's that good! Here are some of the easiest to-go recipes for everyone.
Fasolakia is an easy Greek delicious dish. I make it all-year round, with or without chicken, hot or cold. As you can tell it's very versatile. You likely have a few cans of tomato sauce in your pantry and beans are easy to find at any given time of year. Throw this dish on the stove, you can walk away and do something else for a few minutes. Add some feta on top and your partner will think you're the next Gordon Ramsey.
2. Cheesy Chicken & Rice
If you hate doing dishes this one-pot dinner option will be your favorite. You'll only need one bowl to eat it out of, a welcomed addition to your weekday. This recipe is super simple and very delicious. For a healthier version, skip the melted cheese at the end!
3. Penne alla Vodka
Ohhhhh penne all vodka is delicious, isn't it? Step up your pasta came with this simple recipe. Add chicken if you want a heartier meal. Your partner will be impressed by your dedication to detail. Italians everywhere will be cheering you on!
4. Swedish Meatballs
Love your crock pot? Well you'll love making Swedish meatballs for dinner. It sounds like a complicated and overwhelming recipe, but it's not! And you'll impress your dinner guests with a new recipe. The ingredients are simple and scarce which is great for a new cook or struggling chef.
5. Balsamic Chicken, Avocado, & Feta Salad
Need something healthy but filling? Try this salad. It has a ton of vegetables and you can add chicken for a hearty dish. Check your local grocery store for the freshest and ripest veggies so your salad will be fresh for dinner. Swap out any ingredients you can't find and make it your own, whatever season it may be.
6. Roasted Garlic and Kale Spaghetti Squash with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
For our vegan friends, try this delicious spaghetti squash recipe filled with great vegetables. Spaghetti squash is a versatile vegetable and turning it into spaghetti is easy and frankly, fun. Cut the squash into two and bake or grill that bad boy and you'll have a great dish. If you're cooking for little ones, they'll love how fun and interesting the squash feels and tastes.
