We have over 165 dinner recipes on this blog of ours. And that is not including the over 200 other recipes that could possibly also be classified as “dinner.” (Lunch Burritos we’re looking at you).
But there are some recipes we keep coming back to again and again – these 10. These are the recipes that keep making their way back into our kitchens. And yes, we love all of our recipes – we shed a tear when this salad and these enchiladas didn’t make the cut. And yes, we cook and eat ALL our recipes.
But this list just highlights a few that we think are just a little bit special. And maybe, when you are staring into your fridge or pantry unsure of what to make for dinner, this will be a good starting point for some dinner-time inspiration. Because we all lose our cooking mojo from time to time.
Our 10 Go-To Dinner Recipes
The title says it all. Three kinds of cheese, homemade tomato sauce, and a package of gnocchi. Can’t go wrong. Plus we tested a version where you don’t even have to boil the gnocchi ahead of time – bonus!
Once you try our simplified version, you’ll never go back. It’s all the delicious flavours of the classic, without any of the messy breading or frying.
If you’re looking to get started cooking with tofu, this is the perfect gateway recipe. We took one of the classic takeout dishes and made it easy enough to make at home, without sacrificing any flavour. We probably make tofu once a week, and this is one we just can’t get enough of.
This is literally the easiest soup recipe EVER. Made entirely from your pantry, it doesn’t get much simpler than that! And there’s peanut butter in it – so you know it’s going to be delicious. It also makes quite a large batch so you can freeze some for one of those crazy weeknights.
This pizza has quickly become our new favourite homemade pizza – and that’s quite a long list. Every time we make it we receive rave reviews. It’s a food mashup of the best kind!
This is the third time that three ingredient tomato sauce is featured and for good reason – it pretty much makes every dish taste so darn delicious! And this lasagna is no exception. What we love most about this dish is how much simpler it is than the traditional lasagna. It makes lasagna an achievable weeknight dinner.
An oldie but a goodie! A good standard fish taco recipe is the kind of dish that never goes out of style. And it comes together in under 30 minutes. That’s what we call a weeknight dinner win!
Anyway that we can do less dishes, we’re in! So a one pan meal is always a favourite in our kitchens. This One Pan Burrito Bowl is the perfect DIY dinner – one of our favourite family friendly meal ideas. Everyone can choose their own burrito toppings and customize their bowls to their liking. Dinner time fun for everyone!
We made this cheesy casserole on our very first Virtual Meal Prep Class! It is so flavourful and delicious with so few ingredients – which is just one of the reasons we can’t get enough. It’s also a really great meal to bring to a new mom as it freezes really well and is super easy to whip up a double batch.
We discovered the secret to crispy baked chicken strips and you’re in luck because we are sharing it with you! We bake the panko and coconut prior to cooking the chicken, which results in a really crispy exterior and super moist interior. So it’s pretty much the world’s most perfect chicken strip. And you’ll think so too!
Let us know some of your go-to dinner recipes, we’re always on the lookout for more! And as always, if you make any of our recipes, please share! We love seeing what you guys are cooking up!
