Quick Cooks

Recently I have gotten into cooking, and not to sound like I am putting myself down or underestimating myself, but I am actually shocked that I am decent at cooking. I have to admit I was kind of intimidated a little by it…I’ve always been more into baking than cooking, after all, how badly can you mess up something who’s main ingredients are sugar and butter? 
In all honesty I thought cooking would be a lot harder than it is; I definitely built it up way too much. I will say that I have come to the conclusion that all recipes lie about how long it takes to prepare something; I’ve learned you need to add at least 15 minutes onto the prep time. At the risk of sounding lazy, I always go for recipes that seem doable and take 30 minutes or less to prepare and cook. For today’s post I thought it would be fun to share my top five favorite recipes that take 45 minutes or less, from start to finish.

I honestly had no idea that an entire meal could be prepared in one pot. This dish is the per cold night dinner. Comfort food at it’s best and easiest. 

This is probably the recipe I make the most. I have tweaked this recipe a little bit…. Instead of chicken breasts I use two packs of chicken tenders, and I also add a little bit of honey to my bbq sauce before I  spread the mixture over the chicken
Confession, I am a chicken enthusiast, I just feel like its healthy and there is almost an endless amount of things you can do with it. This dish is simply delicious, and in all honestly it taste more like a summer dish but in my book it’s always the right time for chicken! I cook the chicken about five minutes longer than the directions suggest, I do one less teaspoon of lemon juice and instead I slice up a fresh  and place it in the baking to cook.

When the word ‘easy is used in a title I am instantly drawing to it. This was super easy to make, and is there anything else out there that screams winter comfort foods like pork chops and green beans?

I know…I know, not a dinner at all, but I love baking and Ina Garten seriously has the best Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!

What are some of your favorite  quick cooks?
