Brownies are one of the most popular desserts in America. Easy to make, but with little variation. No matter if they turn out cake-like or fudgy, every batch tastes the same. As fall turns to winter, why not add a taste of winter? Melting a layer of chocolate thin mints on a regular batch of brownies will add serious flavor to this sweet treat. Give this cool easy dessert a try — it is a cinch to make anytime of the year.

This easy guacamole is as simple as chopping a few ingredients and then mixing them together. If you don't have time to chop, dice, and mince to the recipes specifications, try giving everything a rough chop — except the garlic, which you should pass through a garlic press or mince by hand — and then toss the ingredients in a food processor. After a few quick pulses you'll have a creamy and delicious dip.Click here for more of our best guacamole recipes.

To say I love peanut butter is an understatement. Then combine the creamy, nutty goodness with melted chocolate, and it's like heaven on Earth.There are so many peanut butter cookies out there — some crispy, others chewy, and yet more rich and dense. These easy cookies are gluten-free, as there is no flour, as well as dairy-free. Better yet, they don't require any mixing equipment. Whip them up, bake them off, and then you have a light and airy treat in a matter of minutes.Click here to see more easy cookie recipes.

While I roasted this lovely piece of meat, you can also easily butterfly it and cook it on the grill during the summer (of course, remove the bone first). When using such high-quality meat such as Lava Lake Lamb, there isn't much that needs to be done. So in this simple recipe, I used the classic lamb pairings of rosemary and garlic, plus some fresh sage and then salt, pepper, and olive oil. Of course, you're welcome to get a little fancier and create a Dijon marinade instead or try basting the lamb with Dijon periodically while it's cooking. Up to you.I suggest serving this with crisp, roasted potatoes and some quickly roasted tomatoes as well.Click here to see more Luscious Lamb recipes.

Gingersnaps are typically eaten during the holiday season, but they're a comforting cookie to bake any time of year.Recipe courtesy of Rachel Cooks.

These tacos, with crispy fried white fish and fresh avocado, are perfect for warm weather. It's the perfect weeknight meal after a busy day at work. Pop open a cerveza, pass around some chips and salsa, and kick back and relax.Check out Everything You Want to Know About Avocados.See all recipes for tilapia.

What is more comforting on a cool winter night than roasted fingerling potatoes and rosemary with a nice big slice of meatloaf? Not much.This easy and utterly delicious recipe is inspired by a recipe of my grandmother's. While she grates her onions, so you can't detect the texture, I instead opted to sauté a finely diced onion and then combine it with fresh herbs for a new twist. You could cheat and top the meatloaf with ketchup, like many "easy" meatloaf recipes suggest, but the cloyingly sweet topping is nowhere near as delicious as a homemade topping.Serve with those crisp-roasted potatoes and some roasted broccoli. Comfort food at its finest!Click here to see Cozy Comfort Food Recipes.

10 New Ways to Eat Empanadas

Empanadas are, hands down, the best snack food ever. They really are. Punto. The dough is super easy to make, and then all you do is stuff it full of your favorite filling (meat, chicken, fish, olives, eggs, it's all good!), close them up, and bake or fry until they're crispy and golden-brown. Here are 10 mouthwatering recipes.

1. Beef and potato empanadas. Traditional beef empanadas are good. These ones, courtesy of blogger Jonathan Melendez of the Candid Appetite, are better.

2. Chicken enchilada empanadas. A little different than traditional fare, true, but when it comes to food, it pays to keep an open mind, and these rolled-up pieces of goodness are delicious.

3. Empanadas Mendocinas. A recipe for those craving the traditional Argentinian mix of beef, olives, and hard-boiled eggs.

4. Three sisters' empanadas. This vegetarian recipe is named for the filling, which is made up of beans, squash, and corn. The Kitchn reports that according to Iroquois legend, these three veggies need less tending when grown next to one another, hence, the "three sisters" nickname.

5. Mushroom and cheese empanadas. Raisins + fontina cheese + mushrooms = a suuper rica end result that's both savory and sweet.

6. Empanadas de jamón y queso. This recipe is simple, flavorful, and oozes with cheesy goodness.

7. Pumpkin cream cheese empanadas. Forget about the pumpkin spice latte and try this pumpkin-tinged recipe the next time you feel your sweet tooth taking over. It's like a tiny, perfect-sized pumpkin cheesecake to go.

8. Chocolate dulce de leche empanadas. The perfect postre, this recipe includes chocolate, dulce de leche, sea salt, and cinnamon (um, yum!), and is best served with a scoop of ice cream.

9. Fried cheese empanadas. Fried dough and cheese is always a good idea. You literally cannot go wrong with this recipe.

10. Crab empanadas with potatoes and queso fresco. Get your seafood fix with this light and refreshing recipe.

Dried Fruits and Nuts

Trail mix is among the best camping foods because the mixture of nuts, grains, and dried fruits keep well, are easy to carry, and provide plenty of nutritional value. You don’t have to settle for the mainstream fare, either. Pick up your favorite ingredients and create your own trail mix recipes. Don’t forget to add some tasty goodies like yogurt-covered raisins or dried bananas and pineapple to give the mix a sweeter flavor.

Nuts by themselves are perfect for an RV camping trip, but shell them ahead of time or buy them ready-to-eat. The great outdoors is ours to protect and even though nutshells are biodegradable, a trail of peanut hulls is not what the people behind you want to see underfoot.

Recipe Summary

  • 3 pounds fruit (see options, below), cut into 1-inch chunks if large, stone fruit pitted
  • 1 1/2 pounds sugar (3 1/3 cups)
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Stir together fruit, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved and mashing fruit with a potato masher. Add lemon juice continue to boil, stirring frequently, until bubbles slow, chunks of fruit show at top, and mixture clings to a spoon but falls off in clumps, 10 to 12 minutes. Skim foam from top.

Ladle jam into clean containers, leaving 3/4 inch of headroom. Let cool completely. Cover, label, and refrigerate up to 1 month, or freeze up to 1 year.

30-Minute Meal-Prep Recipes to Save Time on Sunday Funday

Meal prep is a strategy that makes it easier to eat healthy, home-cooked meals throughout the week. That’s why we keep the whole meal-prep thing short and sweet — and sometimes spicy.

These easy, healthy meal-prep recipes take just 30 minutes or less. That’s what meal-prep is really about: creating nutritious meals easily and efficiently. That way, they’re ready when you are.

1. Quick and easy chicken spring roll jars

Your grab-and-go meals are as attractive as they are tasty with these mason jar noodles (you could also put them in other containers, but this way is more fun).

With spicy chicken on the bottom, rice vermicelli on top, and fresh veggies sandwiched in between, they’re a healthier and more refreshing alternative to fried spring rolls.

2. Meal-prep sesame chicken pasta salad

Pasta salads are a no-brainer for meal prep: They last a few days, and the flavors get even better as the ingredients hang out together.

You’ll love the sweet and tangy sesame dressing of this dish even more on the fourth day than you did on the first.

3. Spicy peanut chicken wraps

Even counting the time to cook the chicken, this recipe comes together in 20 minutes flat. Tuck the shredded meat into tortillas along with broccoli slaw and a sriracha-spiced peanut sauce and scratch off four lunches from your to-do list this week.

4. Honey sriracha glazed meatballs

These easy baked turkey meatballs are glazed in a sweet and spicy sauce. Bake 40 of these as a tasty protein component of your make-ahead meal.

Freeze them or keep them in the fridge to use throughout the week. Top salads, grains, pasta, or cauliflower rice or tuck them into a whole-wheat pita.

5. Smoky green bean turkey skillet

Short on time and groceries? Turn to this five-ingredient skillet meal to save hours in the days ahead. Frozen green beans, jarred salsa, and a paprika-garlic-basil salt jazz up ground turkey.

6. Meal-prep Vietnamese beef and riced veggies

No need to wait for rice to cook with this meal when you’ve got frozen riced veggies to keep the prep time short (and the carb count light).

Top the colorful bed of faux grains with tender chunks of beef and store the peanutty hoisin sauce separately to drizzle over everything when you’re ready to dig in.

7. Salsa verde taco meal-prep bowls

This recipe makes eight servings and is a good use of leftover brown rice or quickly cooked cauliflower rice or quinoa.

There’s no guac or cheese in these to-go bowls, and you won’t even miss them — salsa verde, cumin, and oregano give the ground beef plenty of Tex-Mex flavor.

8. Dijon steak nicoise salad

Meal prep goes (sorta) gourmet with this simple but refined steak salad. As long as you keep the dressing, veggies, and meat separate until it’s time to eat, you can enjoy a bistro-style lunch or dinner several times a week.

9. Cumin spiced beef wraps

Bite through these crisp rolls to a spicy beef filling. Lettuce wraps like these are designed for meal prep. Keep the leaves and the filling separate until chow time, so there’s no chance of the leaves getting soggy.

10. Meal-prep tuna salad

We usually whip out a can of tuna when we’re tight on time. But make tuna salad in advance, and life gets even easier. In this version, it’s cushioned with fresh tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs in your lunch box.

That’s how plain ol’ tuna becomes a real meal. (Bet you didn’t notice there’s no bread.)

11. One-pan baked cod and veggies

Yes, cod is meal-prep friendly. Once it’s cooked, you can keep it in the fridge for a couple of days… if it lasts that long.

This terrific one-pan recipe makes four servings, which can be one special dinner for two followed by lunch the next day.

12. Healthy sheet pan tilapia and veggies

Having leftover brown rice is key to making this a complete meal in 30 minutes. If you don’t have any, the roasted fish fillets and veggies go equally well with quicker-cooking grains like quinoa.

13. Shrimp teriyaki zucchini noodles meal prep

Spiralized zucchini makes this a salad in noodle form. Shrimp and veggies are tossed in homemade glaze. We reduce the amount of honey to 1 tablespoon to ensure the dish doesn’t become an accidental sugar bomb.

14. Honey BBQ baked salmon bowls

Quinoa cooks up in less than half the time rice does, so it’s a great meal-prep candidate. Here, the fluffy, protein-rich seeds are topped with nutritional powerhouses like salmon, avocado, and pumpkin seeds.

15. Healthy meal-prep bowls

Go back to basics with these simple, straightforward meal-prep bowls. Calling for neat and colorful rows of veggies, chickpeas, quinoa, and feta, this no-cook recipe makes it easy to eat the rainbow.

16. Meal-prep veggie stir-fry

The key to this timesaver is prepping all the veggies at once, so you’ll be ready to stir up a sizzling mix in minutes throughout the week. This blogger has scoped out non-plastic containers for meal prep and carrying to the office.

17. Greek kale and quinoa salad meal-prep bowls

This vegetarian salad smiles back at you. Massaged the kale in lemon-olive oil dressing and layer it over fluffy quinoa. Then add crunchy cucumbers, savory olives, salty feta, creamy hummus, and whole chickpeas.

Garnish with fresh dill and lemon wedges. Their bright flavors will make you happy to eat this satisfying salad 3 days in a row.

18. Tofu burrito bowl meal prep

Chipotle sofritas, step aside! The spiced tofu mixture in these meal-prep burrito bowls is tastier and healthier, and it takes just 15 minutes to make. Score!

Plus, since the recipe makes enough for five meals, the cost per meal is just a fraction of what you’ll pay at a fast-food joint.

19. Quinoa fajita bowls

Quinoa is the protein source in these vegan fajitas. Fajita seasoning and jarred pepperoncini are smart shortcuts that punch up the flavor in this bowl of goodness.

20. Sun-dried tomato chickpea one-pot pasta

You’ve got options with this one-pot recipe. Either combine all the sauce ingredients in advance so all you have to do is dump them in a pot with hot pasta come dinnertime, or make the whole thing on Sunday night and divvy it up in individual containers.

Spending all day meal-prepping is a thing of the past. With these recipes, you’ll have food on your plate (and ready for the rest of week) before the end of that Netflix episode you’re watching. Now that’s what we call fast.

Discover Tilly's recipe for Lean Machine Chicken Skewers. The combination of pine nuts, Parmesan and sun-blushed tomatoes is amazing.

What Pressure Cooker/Slow Cooker Do You Use?

Most of the time I use my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.* I love this slow cooker (you can see me talking about it in a video here). It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.

For pressure cooking I use my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.
