4 Delicious Dinners I’m Making This Week

I’ve meant to cook more meals at home for my family since the New Year, but life’s been so busy that I’ve been resorting to the same round up of dishes I’m used to making.

This week, I chose 4 delicious dinners to make that I haven’t prepared in a long time. It’s hard to satisfy my picky boys, but I think these choices will work for everyone in the family.

I don’t know about you, but there are so many recipe options out there, it’s hard to know which to choose. I find many are too complicated for everyday cooking, involve too many or specialty ingredients, or are just too labor intensive to prepare.

The recipes below have each been tested by me in the past. I love when I taste something made by one of my friends, and I can make the dish at home. I’m hoping you get the same type of inspiration here.

I’ve linked the recipe sources for Dinner 1 in this post. The other recipes will be made into separate future posts, so stay tuned if they look tasty to you. If you want to make it sooner than later, just shoot me an email and I will send you the recipe!

Dinner 1

Lemon Chicken with Shallots, Couscous with Toasted Pine Nuts and Roasted Green Beans


Recipe Sources

Lemon Chicken with Shallots

Couscous with Toasted Pine Nuts  Note: use 1/2 the onions and chop very fine

Roasted Green Beans

Dinner 2

Korean Barbecue Flank Steak with White Rice and Steamed Broccoli

Basic comfort food! Who doesn’t like Korean Barbecue? Flank steak is easier to find (and less fatty) than traditional Korean ribs. The recipe for the steak is in my 6 Kid-Friendly Recipes post.

Dinner 3

Homemade Chicken Stock with Boiled Chicken, Rice-a-Roni Wild Rice, Garlic-Roasted Cauliflower


This meal is easy to make, but the broth does take some time to cook. It’s best to plan this on a day you will be home for several hours. I make homemade chicken broth routinely!

Dinner 4

Chicken Caesar Salad

What’s unique about this dish is the delicious caesar dressing recipe I have! A friend brought it over for a potluck, and everyone devoured it.

Ok, time to get cooking on Dinner 1! What are you making for dinner this week?
