Lately I’ve been relying a lot on my arsenal of go-to dinner recipes. We all have them. There are some you probably don’t even consider recipes because they’re so quick and easy. They’re the ones you have memorized. The ones you know will get eaten without a fight. The ones you turn to when you just don’t have any energy left at the end of the day.
They’re my favorite kinds of recipes. When I talk to people about meal planning, I encourage them to try 1-2 new meals a week and then fill in the other days with recipes like this, plus a leftover night and a dinner out.
The problem is, even your go-to recipes can get a little boring on occasion…especially if you rely on them too heavily.
So I reached out to some of my fellow food bloggers and asked them to share their favorite blog recipe that falls into this category of go-to easy dinner ideas.
Then I rounded them up for you so that you can try them. Hopefully you’ll find a few that are new to you but quickly get added to your own go-to list!
