    Really Quick for Dinner!

    Too often I have not really planned ahead and need to make something quick to dinner. I've started going through recipes I have posted and made, and a few that I have not yet made but I think are likely to be winners, and collected them into this cookbook, so that I can easily find something when I really really need it fast. For some of the recipes you need to have cooked meat, but most of us have something in the freezer that can be zapped.

    I was obsessed with this dish from Macaroni Grille when I was pregnant. This is the closest I could come to recreating it at home so it didn't cost so much! This is also great without the chicken. Make totally vegetarian by substituting veggie broth for the chicken broth! I have also used fat free half and half for the heavy cream with decent results but in order to make the dish as rich and creamy as they do, you need to use the heavy cream.

    When cooked, there will be layers of salmon and peas near the surface. A quick and easy quiche. I like hot ketchup on top of my pie slice.

    I couldn't live without canned tuna. I always keep a supply in my pantry. Here is a simple way to turn your can of tuna into a dinner treat.

    Recipe #40984

    This dish turned out perfect with my minor additions in order to suit our tastes, adding the optional "heat" of Sambal Oelek, which I would strongly recommend. The coconut milk tends to lessen the intensity of the heat. I did not use low sodium products as originally suggested, but it's an option. Mixture is very wet to work with. You may want to spray your hands with oil to prevent the meat from sticking to your hands. I got 20 medium size meatballs using a 1/8 cup measure. Recipe by: Family Circle Magazine, April 2013

    Recipe #501422

    Okay, casseroles aren't made in a skillet, but this is a really easy substitute for tuna casserole. Everything is done on top of the stove, and it is great for a weeknight after working hard! Definitely not gourmet fare, so if that is what you are looking for, please don't try and review this recipe. This is just a simple, everyday quick and easy dinner.

    A delightful summer main dish. The cakes can be made ahead and frozen. Make small cakes to serve as an appetizer. This recipe is from our special friends - Ray and Anita. They were our next door neighbors for 23 years. Our children grew up with 2 sets of parents.

    Recipe #64246

    A great substitute for chili rellenos.

    Recipe #301005

    I think this originally came from "Best of Bridge". It is a great way to use leftover ham.

    By FN chef Ellie Krieger published in the USA Weekend magazine. This recipe relies, pretty much, on pantry ingredients. If I did not have fresh ginger for the sauce, I would mix mayonnaise with Thai chili sauce or sriracha.

    Recipe #138288

    An easy, tasty stew with Spanish flavours. Served on its own, it can be served as a tapas or as a main dish over buttered noodles.

    Recipe #61820

    This is a favourite recipe that I found years ago in our local newspaper.

    Recipe #64635

    I know that purists will be horrified, but these are quick, easy and delicious for a work night dinner. Serve with applesauce and/or sour cream. These do not require much oil, and can easily be fried on a hot griddle, to make them faster. Just brush the griddle with oil before placing the batter. Instead of chopping the green onion, just snip it into rings with kitchen shears. (My sister says that the milk can be replaced with chicken stock, but I have not tried it).

    Recipe #377759

    From "5 Spices, 50 Dishes" by Ruta Kahate. You can use raw beef for this, but the far more useful trick is to use leftover beef or lamb roast. (Author suggested beef roast, but I tried it with lamb and it was great). I think you could also use rare deli beef also, for a quick meal. And I'll make potatoes like this even if not making the rest of the dish. This is a popular dish reflecting the influence of the many cultures that colonized India.
