What makes a “go-to dinner”? One pot is good. 30 minutes or less is better. But we’ll use every cookie sheet and pot in the house if it’s 1) not pizza and 2) all of our kids will actually eat it.

Margaret’s Go-To Dinners
Beef Empanadas (use refrigerated pie crust for the dough)
Green Soup (Margaret adds chicken)
Amy’s Go-To Dinners

Rebecca’s Loaded Potato Soup
Mollie’s Chickpea Tikka Masala
Diane’s Asian Noodles (kudos to this brilliant bit of improvisation):
