You're busy, we get it. But that doesn't mean you don't want/need/deserve a solid home-cooked meal. That's where we come in, with five recipes that take way less time and effort than you--or your guests--might think. 

All you need is one bowl--and a secret ingredient--to whip up this perfectly rich chocolate dump cake.

Another one-pot treat we're loving? This ultra-creamy mac and cheese that comes together in just 30 minutes. 

File under boring: Stirring risotto. Try our low-maintenance version and wait for dinner to cook itself.

There's a time and a place for 10-cent ramen (3 a.m., a college dorm). Up your noodle game with this veggie-filled soup that's almost as easy as the packaged variety. 

Nothing beats a flaky, buttery croissant on a Sunday morning, and our simplified recipe saves time without sacrificing taste.
