We want to know!
We all know the scene. It’s the end of a looong day — and you’re starving by the time you get home.
You want something more substantial than say, boxed mac, but you also don't want to spend two hours in the kitchen.
So you turn to your go-to easy dinner: something that tastes amazing, and doesn’t take long to make.
Maybe it’s something you can just quickly toss on a sheet pan (and eat ASAP):
Cubing the chicken first means that everything cooks through in about 15 minutes.
Or an odds-and-ends bowl you can whip up with whatever’s left in your fridge:
Like rice, a fried egg, and whatever veggies — tomato, broccoli, avocado — you have on hand. (Plus plenty of hot sauce!)

Maybe it’s something that cooks itself in a slow cooker — and makes for great leftovers:
You can let this simple soup cook all day long in the Crock Pot. Then, when you get home, just blend everything and enjoy!

Or maybe it’s turning to a five-ingredient recipe that you never get sick of.
In this case, there's only a few ingredients — olive oil + garlic + tomato paste + chickpeas + pasta (and rosemary, if you want!) — but there's a ton of flavor.

Or maybe it’s just quickly upgrading a classic, like instant ramen.
It takes all of five minutes to fry some bacon + an egg. (Plus some green onions if you're feelin' fancy.)
