Classic Shrimp Scampi

We can't get enough of shrimp scampi! Do we love it because it&rsquos simple but seemingly fancy? Or because it&rsquos done in 30 minutes? Or because we just can&rsquot resist a buttery wine sauce? All of the above!

Turmeric Chicken Flatbread

Turmeric is popular in smoothies and juices, but we upped the ante and used it to season boneless chicken thighs. Mixed with pumpkin pie spice, it makes a flavorful seasoning for boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Served on top of crispy naan and drizzled on a tangy yogurt sauce, you've got a complete meal in just 20 minutes!

Sweet and Sour Glazed Shrimp

You won't believe how easy it is to get the perfect balance of flavors for this shrimp. Just mix Chinese plum sauce, ketchup and rice wine vinegar.

Sesame Pork Milanese

Pounding the pork chops thin helps speed the cooking process, allowing you to pull this whole dish together in just 30 minutes. If you don&rsquot have a meat mallet you can use a heavy skillet, instead.

Chicken Scampi Pasta

Chicken takes the place of shrimp in this dish inspired by the Olive Garden classic &mdash making it even more weeknight friendly. This recipe gets you in and out of the kitchen in less than 30 minutes.

BLT Bean Salad

All the flavors of a classic BLT sandwich come together in this hearty bean salad. The homemade herb-mayo dressing adds freshness while the crisp bacon and croutons add a welcomed crunch. It's a great way to use up those pantry beans.

Indian-Spiced Pepper Steak

The secret to this quick dinner's Indian-spiced flavor is a mixture of warm, earthy spices with bright vegetables and hot peppers.

Hot Sausage Cast-Iron Skillet Pan Pizza

The key to a pan pizza is preheating the pan so the dough starts to cook right after it is placed inside. That'll help you get a super crispy crust on the bottom.

Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas

Stuff corn tortillas with a cheesy Buffalo chicken filling for a mashup you'll crave again and again. It's an easy weeknight winner, thanks to rotisserie chicken.

20-Minute Sausage and Pepper Ravioli Skillet

We took the favorite Italian flavor combo of sausage and peppers and put them in an easy weeknight dish that can be on the table in just 20 minutes. Cook the store-bought ravioli and colorful sauce at the same time, then finish by heating them in the same pan. Melted provolone is the crowning touch.

Pork Chops Pizzaiola

Crispy Chicken Thighs with Caramelized Lemon Rinds

The next time you juice a lemon, don't toss the rinds! Instead, wrap them up and save them in the fridge, then make this easy chicken recipe. It works with zested lemon rinds, too. The rinds get cooked down with the chicken and maple syrup, resulting in sweet and tangy pan drippings designed for drizzling over everything.

Pretzel-Mustard-Crusted Pork Sliders

Playing off the classic pairing of pretzels and mustard, we've transformed the everyday pork tenderloin into something truly special. First, we slice it into thin cutlets. Then we coat the cutlets with an egg and mustard mixture and roll them in pretzel crumbs. Fried until crisp and tucked into adorable slider buns, they're topped with a creamy, tangy mustard sauce for an irresistible weeknight meal.

Escarole and Bean Soup

A hearty dinner doesn't need to include meat &mdash just ask Giada. This classic Italian soup is filled with tart escarole and hearty cannellini beans. A chunk of Parmesan is the secret ingredient that makes the soup silky and rich.

Stuffed Cabbage Cups

This fresh and faster take on classic steamed cabbage rolls takes half the time but does not sacrifice on flavor. It's also a cinch to prepare, with no fussy filling and rolling each cabbage leaf before cooking. Instead, the sauteed filling is simply scooped into boiled cabbage leaves and topped with a creamy tomato sauce before serving. It's a meaty, hearty and completely satisfying meal for a busy weeknight.

Ravioli with Lemon, Peas and Pancetta

We love a good quick-fix dinner &mdash like this one, made from packaged ravioli. We elevate the pre-made pasta by creating a simple, homemade sauce with lemon, butter and cheese. Peas and pancetta make it a meal.

27 Fast and Easy Quick Bread Recipes

Quick breads are easy to prepare and bake, and they make a fabulous sweet breakfast or snack bread. Or serve the bread slices as a dessert. You can jazz a quick bread up with a dessert sauce or icing, or serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream.

When preparing the batter for a quick bread or muffins, combine and mix the dry ingredients thoroughly and then mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Make sure you have your oven preheated and pans greased and ready. The instant the dry ingredients are mixed with the wet mixture, the baking soda and baking powder begin their work, so get it into the pans and oven as quickly as possible. Mix the batter gently and don't worry about little lumps an overmixed batter will result in a dense bread. If you use self-rising flour in a quick bread recipe, omit the baking powder and salt.

And don't worry about having too much. Leftover or dry quick bread can be used in bread pudding or layered desserts, like a trifle. Treat your friends and family with these excellent quick bread recipes.

3. Consider make-ahead or slow-cooker recipes.

4. Maintain a well-stocked pantry full of ingredients you feel comfortable using, such as dried spices, garlic, rice, or whatever your family enjoys.

Easy Quick Pickles

Quick pickles are the simplest pickles to make and can last about a month in the refrigerator without any complicated canning steps. All you need to do is make a simple brine of vinegar, water, salt, sugar, and some toasted mustard seeds and peppercorns, then pour it over the vegetables. You can use almost any vegetable, like cucumbers, baby carrots, cauliflower, green beans, zucchini, or even okra, and after one day’s pickling time, they’re ready to go on your favorite sandwich or burger. Feel free to experiment with the brine by using different spices like coriander, dill seeds, or chile flakes.

What to buy: Don’t confuse packaged baby-cut carrots—which are mature carrots whittled into a smaller “baby” size—with fresh green-topped baby carrots. True baby carrots are tender, immature carrots with their skin intact.

Special equipment: You can use glass jars like these to make the pickles in. The wide mouth allows you to easily fit the vegetables inside, and the glass lets you see what you’re doing, as well as not absorbing any off odors from the pickles.

Game plan: If the baby carrots are smaller than 1/2 inch in diameter, you can leave them whole. Peeling them is optional, but make sure you give them a good scrub.

These pickles will last in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Watch the CHOW Test Kitchen’s Christine Gallary make these simple pickles in an episode of our Easiest Way video series.

Food for a Crowd: History of the Potluck

Ah, the potluck. We've all probably been to a few in our day. Everyone brings a dish and shares in a meal together. Nice concept, but where did it come from? Let's take a look at the history of this tradition.

It began back in the Middle Ages as a term used to describe an impromptu meal one would serve to travelers or unexpected guests. In a time when very little was thrown out, these guests would be served leftovers or the "luck of the pot." On occasion, a potluck referred to a communal meal made by several people, where each cook brought something to contribute. This was usually thrown together in a pot and has been called "stone soup" and other variations over the years.

Americans adapted this tradition around the late 19th century and the concept of people each bringing a prepared dish to share took hold. Today, potlucks are held for all sorts of reasons. Holidays and other large, celebratory gatherings often prompt the need. Having a potluck is a super cost-effective way to provide food for a crowd, and in theory, everyone should have plenty to munch on and leave fully satisfied.


Potluck Hazards:

1. People with diet restrictions or allergies are more than likely not going to be able to eat much at a potluck.

2. Potlucks are often free-for-alls, which leads to duplicate dishes. Did you want 6 chicken casseroles? Because here they are.

3. Sometimes, no one is manning the event or the person in charge doesn't have the proper food-safety training. How long has that mayonnaise-based potato salad been sitting out? Yikes!

1. If you volunteer to bring food, make sure it's ready to serve when you get there. Don't bring something that will need to be defrosted or reheated.

2. Bring all the tools you'll need don't expect them to have tongs or a serving spoon.

3. Don't show up with a bag of groceries and expect to cook there.

4. If you don't want to cook, bring something else! Showing up empty-handed is bad etiquette. This is what store-bought fruit, veggie, and cookie trays were invented for.

5. If you are hosting the potluck and people leave their dishes with you. Make sure to wash and return them in a timely manner.

6. If you are attending a potluck, on the other hand, bring disposable containers when possible to avoid lost or broken dishware and easy cleanup.
