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!
My favorite dinners to make are those that are spin-offs on takeout. You know those meals that you’d normally order from restaurants? Those. Except that they’re made in the comfort your home.
Not only do we save money by making these dinners ourselves, but my family and I get to show our creative side by adding our own twists to them.
When it comes to takeout spin-offs, the key is not to feel intimidated. If restaurants can do it, so can you. You just need a solid recipe to get you started and a bit of inspiration to push you over the edge.
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!
