Welcome to back-to-school season! Isn’t it great? Ah, breathe it in; you can practically smell the high blood pressure. And do you hear that? Listen closely; it’s the meditation app playing from the car behind you in the morning drop-off lane at school. With keeping up with after-school activities and making time to help the kiddos with homework the second you get home from your full-time job, carving out hours of your day to make a complicated meal every weeknight for the family is damn near impossible. But with the help of Ina Garten’s easy weeknight dinner recipes, you can crank out a meal in 30 to 45 minutes and it’ll taste great.
Garten, for those who may not know, is the Food Network queen. She’s equal parts bubbly and resourceful, and she has — hands down — the best recipes, ranging from quick-and-easy, yet flavorful dishes to more advanced dishes that’ll impress even the pickiest of guests. Garten is so popular, in fact, celebrities like Jennifer Garner, Meghan Markle and Taylor Swift are mega-fans.
So, don’t even break a sweat over what you’ll cook for dinner on weeknights this school year. Instead, turn to these quick-and-easy Garten recipes.
