Dinner Recipes, or DinneRecipe for short, is a passion for me that I want to pass on to you. Think about recipes for dinner and the first thing that comes to your mind is planning. The bad thing about planning is that it takes a lot of time and effort to come up with a plan for a large meal like dinner. Who has the time to plan a dinner in advance, especially if everyone in your family is busy throughout your short day?
I created this website to end the problem many people face when it comes time for dinner. The problem with most recipe sites is that they provide great recipes, but when you start looking for ingredients for those recipes, you come up short.
Now you have another problem. You already got the urge to eat whatever it was you saw.
You have two options:
Go to the store and buy the ingredients you need (taking up more precious time and money), or you find something else to cook. Most people will take the unhealthy route and go out to eat.
Here's an easy solution, or alternative, for you to figure out what to make for dinner. Start in your fridge, pantry, and cupboards. Briefly familiarize yourself with what you have to work with. Then visit my website to find the recipe that works for the ingredients you already have on hand.
Most of my recipes are generic enough to base your decision on main ingredients like meats, vegetables, fruits, and starches, but give you options to flavor it up with spices and sauces you commonly have on hand. I make the recipe following process so simple, even someone whose vaguely familiar with cooking can make an excellent dinner for the family.
The secret to every day dinner isn't to be fancy. Every dinner should be nutritious, wholesome, and fill the everyone's' belly. This isn't a site glorifying recipes and making dinner look like it was served in a five star restaurant. These are home cooked recipes for the every day modern family.
Let's face it, when you come home from work and everyone is tired, no one wants to figure out what to eat, let along go through all of the preparation and cooking. The easy solution is to go out to eat and let someone else worry about it. But if you didn't know, this costs a heck of a lot more than eating at home. On average, if you eat out every night for a family of three (including a teenage child who loves to eat), you will spend about $1,500.00 a month on this "fast" dinner. Not to mention that most restaurants don't serve you the portions you should be eating so you end up eating two or three dinners in one evening. Not good on the body and definitely not good on your checkbook!
It may cost $600.00 per month to buy groceries, which seems like a lot,
but it really isn't if you are preparing and cooking most of the food
you buy every month. Most families buy groceries and only use half (at
the most) of the things they buy, either because they supplement meals
by going out to eat, or they forget what they bought. Where do unused
groceries go when you go shopping again? The garbage! This is a serious
waste of food and money.
Let's fix that. Take a quick inventory of what you have in your cupboards, fridge, and freezer and then find dinner recipes that work for you.
