Best 5 Easy Dinner Recipes

by in Recipes, April 24th, 2012


Though there’s a certain time and place in which it is exciting to experiment with hands-on, over-the-top recipes that require planning and patience, your busy kitchen at about 6 p.m. on a weekday is not it. Instead, that time calls for a no-fuss meal that your whole family will enjoy, and that can be quickly and effortlessly prepped. We’ve rounded up Food Network’s best five go-to dinner recipes, so that even on the busiest evening, you can cook up a complete, feel-good meal.

5. Grilled Pork With Grape-and-Arugula Salad — Lean boneless pork chops need just 5 minutes to marinate in a shallot-thyme vinaigrette to ensure they adopt bold, full flavor.

4. Tomato Gorgonzola Soup — A drizzle of cider vinaigrette before serving balances the richness of the creamy, cheesy soup, made with sweet onions, fresh garlic and crushed tomatoes.

3. Halibut With Tuscan Beans and Endive — A meaty and firm fish, halibut is mild in flavor and pairs nicely with cannellini beans, roasted red peppers and rosemary.

2. Chicken With Sun-Dried Tomato, Eggplant and Basil — Top garlic-laced chicken cutlets with a dollop of soft ricotta cheese and a warm sun-dried tomato, pine nut-eggplant mixture.

1. Caribbean Rice and Beans — Complete with turkey kielbasa, healthful brown rice, collard greens and black-eyed peas, Food Network Magazine’s hearty dish (pictured above) is a full, balanced meal.

    Not true. Logic/common sense should tell you that if the mucless in the face are exercised, which as with any other muscle exercise, will cause the muscle(s) to grow and firm up, the larger firmer mucless will take up more space in your face, giving it a fuller and more toned appearance.
