Top Ten: Easy, Quick and Delicious Recipes So Dad Can Do The Cooking On Mother’s Day (or more realistically, so mom can make something easier than usual)

Chef_RamsayWhether you’re a husband looking to do something nice for Mother’s Day (this weekend, folks) or a mother in need of more recipes (and more time) this Top Ten may be for you. The following meals take very little time to prepare and are enjoyed by my 3 and 5 year olds, special needs teen and husband alike, which has to mean it’s more than empty bragging when I offer these meals up as solutions to the dinnertime crunch.

The recipes that follow only call for a few ingredients, require even fewer steps to prepare and as an added bonus don’t really need to be measured that carefully. Like garlic? Add some more. Don’t like onions? Nobody will miss them. In the end, chances are in your favor that the meal is going to look good and taste even better.

For those of you mothers who (like me) plan to cook dinner on Mother’s Day as usual (and be spoiled in other ways, of course!), maybe this list can bulk up your “I don’t feel like cooking but this barely counts and is better than take out again” recipe collection. Add a loaf of bread, salad or some green veggie (frozen peas count) to most of the meals below and you have a complete, delicious, and most importantly, easy dinner on the table.
