For less stress in the kitchen, try these recipes that require only one dish or pot for easy clean-up, such as a crock pot, instant pot or Dutch oven.
Recipes that freeze well, such as those for soups and stews, can make it easy for your family members to reheat whenever they get hungry.
To limit trips to the grocery store, look for recipes that are ten ingredients or less and that call for common freezer, pantry items or easy substitutions.
