Why You Should Be Cooking your Meals at Home More Often

There’s no place like home – especially when it comes to dining. While eating out might be a fun activity, nothing measures up to the bond you make with family and friends over a healthy, home cooked meal at the dinner table. It doesn’t matter if you can’t cook well or have a busy schedule, these 10 recipes below can help you make home-cooked meals with ease.

Why Cook at Home?

The question should be, why not? There are many reasons why you should stay in and cook for your family. For one, you are sure that your loved ones get the healthiest and freshest food they deserve. No need to worry about possible allergies as well, because you are the one who does everything – from slicing the ingredients on high-quality wood boards – to serving the food with beautiful garnishing.

The best part about cooking at home? You get to save an insane amount of money! No need to pay for tips, fancy meals and gas money. Instead, you get to channel your money on more important matters, such as top-quality ingredients and new cooking equipment.  

10 Heavenly Meals to Try at Home

Whether you are a kitchen newbie or a cooking pro, these 10 recipes can help you create mouth-watering meals that your family will definitely love.

Ultimate Pot Roast

Season roast with salt and pepper. Add salt, celery, onions, thyme, tomato paste, garlic and bay leaves. Bake for 2 ½ hours and serve with your favorite vegetables.


Mom’s Roast Beef

Cook your roast in a Dutch oven. Use the same oven to make a sauce out of bouillon, water, coffee and flour. This is definitely a recipe to try!


Melt-in-your-mouth Chuck Roast

Mix flavorings and vegetables in a slow-cooker before placing the roast on top. Add the tomato mixture and cook the roast for 5-6 hours. Long, but worth it!


Best-Ever Fried Chicken

Dip chicken into the flour mixture followed by the egg mixture. Deep fry for 6-10 minutes or until golden brown for juicy, crispy fried chicken.


Turkey Salisbury Steak

Mix the turkey, sauce and seasonings in a bowl. Use a wood cutting board to make patty-shaped portions. Cook each side for 3-4 minutes and serve with the vegetables of your choice.


Beef and Mushrooms with Smashed Potatoes

Cook beef and mushrooms in a skillet and drain. Add pepper and salt, and mix in broth. Mash potatoes, add butter and cream. Top with beef and mushrooms and serve hot!


Spaghetti Pie Casserole

Cook meat, garlic and onion in a pan. Add the spaghetti sauce, salt and pepper. Transfer the spaghetti mixture to a baking dish and top with cream cheese before baking for 25 minutes.


Easy Meatball Stroganoff

Cook your meatballs, then add the cream and noodles to the pan. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the sauce is thickened. This recipe creates an easy but classic home-cooked dish.


Seasoned Crab Cakes
