Staff Picks

The SE staffers weigh in on their favorites.


Some days you just don't want to think too hard about dinner, but you also don't feel like ordering take-out. These are the recipes we've turned to time and again, and they still always hit the spot. Chickpeas and arugula with pasta shells, a 15-minute tomato soup, frozen dumplings (hah) and more in the slideshow.

How about you—what are your go-to dinners in a snap? (Most of these average around 30 minutes.)
