Like a lot of you, I had inklings early in the year for trips we didn’t plan or take: Visiting friends in Arizona. A food festival in North Carolina. Or heck, a voyage to the local public pool.
Not to worry, I have your back! The Simply Recipes archives are packed with fun regional recipes from all corners of the U.S. Queue up your driving playlist and join us as we cruise via food from Maryland (crab cakes) to South Carolina (chicken with mustard BBQ sauce), to Miami (Cuban sandwiches) to Texas (chilaquiles), and then hang a sharp turn north to the Ohio River Valley for a totally unique chili (Cincinnati chili).
You may be familiar with some of these; others might be totally new to you. Whatever the case, we hope one of these dinners will join your household’s regular rotation and that you’ll be able to enjoy it someday straight from the source.
One last thing: Looking for dinner ideas? You’re in the right spot! We have delicious meal plans to suit every taste and lifestyle—Healthy Eating, Family Favorites, and Vegetarian just to name a few. These one-month plans are $6.95 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!
