I'm in a recipe rut. Care to share your favorite or go to recipe? I'm looking for weeknight stuff so nothing that takes more than around an hour from start to finish.

I also LOVE appetizers so if you have a fave please share!

Thanks!

 Hi there! I can give you a few weeknight ideas and I too love appetizers. You should post in Dinner Ideas--great group of gals there with loads of advice and recipes!    Tell me a few of your favorite things to eat/cook, what you make the most often, etc. and I am sure that the recipes will come spilling out!

Lately I have been into making pizzas! I either buy the crust already made or make them on wheat tortillas (crispier, less carbs/cals but can be flimsy for little ones). Mini crusts are best for picky families so you can make multiple kinds!
I usually bake them for a few mins before adding toppings to make them a little crispy. I put any kinds of ingredients...Alfredo instead of pizza sauce...etc! I've been making new pizza combos once a week & my hubby loves it! Pairs well with steamed veggies & salad!

I make a good boneless bbq rib dinner. It takes about an hour start to finish..maybe even less if you skip the one step. I preheat the oven to 425 degrees. I season the ribs and then sear them in a pan with just a little olive oil. I put bbq sauce in the bottom of a baking dish..just enough to coat it. Then I add the ribs. You don't have to brown the meat..it just sears in the juices a little more. I pour bbq sauce over the top of the ribs cover them with foild and bake for about 45 minutes. Usually with this dinner I make baked potatoes as well. I rub a little olive oil on the potatoes, sprinkle some sea salt on them and then put them directly on the oven rack in front of the pan of ribs. Cook them the same amout of time. The skins of the potatoes get crispy and taste DELICIOUS!! Then I steam a veggie of some sort to go with it. We don't do this meal often because it's not the healthiest, but it's something different every now and then and it's soooo simple. Not a whole lot of prep work.

That sounds amazing! I will definitely be trying that...I've always been a bit intimidated of ribs but you make it sound really easy!
