Ten Quick Dinners for the Weekday

Ten Quick Dinners For The Weekday

We are big on flavor. Sometimes quicker recipes seem to lack that pop of flavor we love so much. To get around this, when we need a quick dinner idea, we use ingredients that are developed, bold and flavor-packed. Below, we share ten of our favorite quick dinners where we use lots and lots of bright bold ingredients like orange juice, lemon, pesto and salsas.

    I hate to be naughty here… but I need more of your great 15-minute recipes… or even a list of recipes with 10 minutes prep (then pop in oven). When faced with spending the next 30 minutes in the kitchen cooking and another 15-20 later for cleanup, sometimes it is too easy to just pile the kids in the car and hit a drive-through.
