  10. My favorite dinner tip? Have pre-cooked chicken on hand in the freezer, always!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Buy ground hamburger when its on sale. Form patties in between wax paper and place 5-6 burgers in a freezer safe ziploc bag. and keep in freezer. When you want burgers quick just pull out a bag of burgers, defrost, and cook! :)

  12. When cooking rice, I always cook extra, which I then portion out and freeze flat in freezer bags. Then on busy nights I can have rice ready in just minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  13. When making mashed potatoes, I always make more than I need. Then, I store them in a plastic container in the refrigerator. When I want to make Shepherd's Pie or another casserole, the potatoes are already made.

  14. I just found your blog and I'm loving it! I'd also love to win :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I make pre-cooked ground beef (fry it up with dehydrated onions, salt and pepper - package in 1 lb. containers) and chicken (grill it on the bbq and package in about 1 lb. containers.) I freeze it. When a recipe calls for ground beef of chicken, it defrosts in 2-3 minutes in the microwave. So much faster than defrosting the meat raw and in a block, and it is already cooked.

  16. My #1 dinner tip since I live alone is to always know how to turn your leftover into totally different meals so I'm not stuck eating the same thing all week long.

  19. My favorite tip is to spend one day a week prepping for meals (chopping onions, shredding chicken, etc.) so that meals are easier to prepare during the week.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wash a week's worth of salad greens to keep in the refrigerator! :)

  21. The crockpot is a wonderful invention...just dump it all in an we come home to a wonderfully smelling house and dinner ready.

    I check local ads to see what is on sale, then plan meals using what's on sale.

  24. My favorite dinner tip would be don't stress about pleasing everyones taste preferences and give them a chance to try something outside of their normal!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a fun giveaway. I love reading everyone's responses. My one dinner tip? Have fun and relax! Cooking should be just as enjoyable as eating. Thank you so much for sharing with me tonight...and thanks for all the sweetness you leave on my blog...it means so much to me!

  26. This are great tips, I don't know what else to add! Well, one tip I have is a shortcut to making meatballs. Just spread the meat out in a baking pan and bake, then cut into squares. You can use them in pasta sauce or as slider patties.

  34. Plan dinner the day before. That way, when it gets to be dinner time, you won't be overwhelmed and be tempted to go out to dinner. Plus, cooking at home not only saves you money, but you can control the healthiness of your meal! :-)

  35. Crockpots are awesome and save so much time!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My favorite dinner tip is to have a plan - I try to plan out meals at least a week in advance to know what I need to buy or defrost. Avoids last minute trips to store or those time for the drive through because it's all frozen nights.

  41. favorite kitchen tip . . . condense utensils used so the dishes aren't as bad!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Favorite kitchen tip - chop up the veggies or any other prep ahead of time, either that morning before work or even the night before. It saves a lot of time when everyone gets home from work/school and is starving.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I do my prep work for dinner in the morning or early afternoon. I'm usually crabby when I'm hungry and it saves me from chopping off a finger when I'm in a bad mood!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My favorite tip is to plan ahead. Make a list so you don't have to go to the grocery store more than once or twice each week. And use the crock pot when you can.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I like to make a one pot dish once every week to finish up the left over vegetables and before I start grocery shopping for the following week..Thanks for this great giveaway...

  47. my favorite dinner tip, use a rotisserie (cooked) chicken for a quick and easy meal (soups, burritos, chicken nachos)

    ReplyDelete
  48. My favorite dinner tip is to cook a whole crock pot of chicken in 7-Up, then freeze it in 2 cup quantities. Perfect for BBQ chicken, chicken pot pie, soup, lots of things.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My dinner tip would be to plan, plan, plan. If I don't have my dinners planned out for a week, then I have no idea what to make and no groceries in the house. It makes it much easier on me to just look at my list of dinner ideas on the fridge and know that I have everything to make them and it's all planned out.

    ReplyDelete
  50. In a hurry make eggs. You can do lots with them fast and cheep.

  51. My tip is to make a weekly menu and follow it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Meal planning is also my tip! It helps with my indecisiveness when I am super hungry and everything sounds delicious. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. That is very nice of you to spread the love; thanks Deborah!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I try and plan dinners around the current grocery ads.

  60. My fav dinner tip would be to always cook extra for future meals, then disguise it...ie leftover roast chicken becomes chicken quesadillas. Extra cooked pork chops are sliced and become a Chinese stir fry two days later.
    I never serve the same thing two days in a row and my family never gets leftovers, just do overs!

    ReplyDelete
  61. My favorite dinner tip is keeping my freezer stocked with bread, frozen vegetables, and meats :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  62. although it's completely unoriginal, one of my best dinner tips is to break out the crockpot--hands-off cooking at its finest!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Favorite dinner tip: Whenever I have extra veggies (onions, carrots, celery, etc.), I always pop them in a zippered baggie and toss in the freezer. These are great for adding to soups, stews, etc. AND, whenever I make casseroles (I am the queen of casseroles!), I make 2-3 extra and freeze them!

  66. Dinner tip: Chop veggies and get as much as possible prepared before. I pick one day a week and chop veggies and put things into baggies for the whole week. Or at least I TRY to.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I do as much advance preparation as possible but my best tip is to have your husband fix dinner! LOL Mine gets off work at 3:30 and I get off at 5:00 so he has dinner on the table for me every night. I cook on weekends though.

  69. My dinner tip is to plan out your meals so that you can use your leftovers to make the next day's meal; - like using leftover chicken to make chicken soup.
