This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, Army wife, and a Simply Recipes recipe tester and developer!
Wardrobes shouldn’t be the only transitional thing in our lives. Meals and ingredients should be transitional as well, if for no other reason than it helps lessen the stress of cooking and baking.
For me, I need ingredients that transcend recipes. If an ingredient can transform itself from breakfast to dinner, or from a cocktail to dessert, it’s going to find a permanent place in my kitchen.
Staple ingredients relieve the pressure on me to “make it happen” when figuring out what to make for dinner on any given night.
This week’s recipes can go from being served with eggs in the morning, to saddling up alongside a starch and veg for dinner later that night. Think of them as a dress (or a blazer) in your wardrobe that goes from work to cocktails with friends.
Yeah! Just like that.
One last thing: Looking for dinner ideas? You’re in the right spot! We just launched our new paid meal plan service. We have delicious meal plans to suit every taste and lifestyle — Healthy Eating, Family Favorites, and Vegetarian just to name a few. These one-week plans are $1.95 and, with them, you get a dessert and weekend prep recipe and a shopping list. They’re beautifully designed and perfect to print and save or simply load and cook right from your computer!
