Best At-Home Dinner Ideas this Winter

Monday, February 1, 2021

          Sometimes a home-cooked meal is one of the most comforting things we can enjoy during a cold, winter evening.  With so many blogs and ideas out on the web, cooking dinner at home does not have to be this elaborate event.  From weekly meal prep to the variety of meals made from a crock pot or slow cooker, this is the time of year to stay in and enjoy a meal made right from home.

          But, before you start planning your weekly meals, start jotting down your favorite ingredients and recipes on your computer or on paper.  This way, you will always have a list on hand in case you really aren’t sure what to make.  Going forward, in case you try something new, simply keep adding items to the list so you don’t forget that one special meal you made a few weeks ago!

          Now, let’s explore the various ways you can make cooking at home easy, so you can enjoy your meal and your time at home!

Slow Cooked Meals

          Slow cooking or crock pot dinners are one of the easiest and most convenient ways to make a large portion of food.  Whether you’re feeding your family or prepping for the upcoming week, slow cooked meals are convenient.  If you don’t already have a slow cooker, you can find them at most major retailers as small as 1.5 quarts to larger 12-quart cookers.  Here are some popular crockpot meal recipes online where you will find tasty meal ideas:

          Another incredibly easy method of cooking at home is the convenience of baking your meals all on one pan.  You could save yourself the trouble of using multiple pots and pans by choosing to bake everything all at the same time in one pan.

          Let this method be your new go-to for dinner resolutions that save you so much time in the long-run.  Here are several resources for one-pan oven meal recipes:
