I seem to ask myself this question daily! What to have for dinner tonight? 

You would think as a food blogger, I would have a 5-course dinner on the table, every night (with a beaming smile). NEWS FLASH my friends, it is untrue! I scramble and struggle just like you.

The other day I was joking with my husband and son, as I scrambled to put something on the table; I said, I should create a meme of a food bloggers family — showing them eating, oh I don’t know…. apple piebanana bread or queso — for dinner! 🙂

My Favorite Sunday Dinner Ideas

Do you make a big meal for Sunday dinner? Sometimes I do, sometimes it’s leftovers or fend for yourself night. But as the weather cools, I love popping something in the oven or crockpot that will cook low and slow, so we can all sit down to dinner, relax and eat a healthy, delicious home-cooked meal.

Maybe you do too! Here are some of our family favorites.

Dessert, then Dinner?

My favorite tool this week is the pan that I used to cook the Mongolian Beef in, I use it for everything — in fact, it is actually called the EVERYTHING pan! It’s cast iron, part wok, part braiser, can go from the stovetop to the oven, I use it for so many things from cooking bacon to Penna alla Vodka.

It’s an investment, but for me it’s a worthy investment as you will have this pan for decades to come!
