More people are starting to cook from home and try out new recipes. It’s a great activity that encourages creativity and produces delicious meals. Don’t know what to make for dinner? Here are three easy recipes to make from pantry ingredients in your Farmington Lakes apartment.

Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Everyone loves cheeseburgers and delicious pies. Combine those two things and you have a dish that’s sure to be a winner with everyone in your household.  

In addition, cheeseburger pie is easy to make with items you have on hand. It also has the added benefit of using leftover ground beef and cheese to stretch your food budget. This makes the meal not only a crowd-pleaser but also cost-efficient, which is something everyone can appreciate.  

Most importantly, this dish is made with simple ingredients like ground beef, Bisquick, cheese, milk, and eggs. It’s a matter of browning the meat, combining it in a pan, and baking in the oven. Toss a salad and call your crew to the table for a dish sure to make everyone smile. 

One-Pot Chicken Pasta 

Chicken and pasta both inspire immediate feelings of warmth, comfort, and contentment. One-Pot Chicken Pasta is one of those foods that radiate love. It’s made in one pot and with ingredients you have on hand.  

Cook some chicken in a big pot, pour in some chicken broth, and throw in pasta, vegetables, and spices. Then, let the entire pot simmer on the stove for a bit.  

Before you know it, you have a delicious meal ready to enjoy. More than that, this is another one of those dishes that will have everyone asking for seconds.  

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

There’s something about moist, thick peanut butter cookies that just brings a smile to everyone’s face. These cookies require only three ingredients, and if you happen to have a peanut allergy, any nut butter may be substituted for peanut butter.  

To make these cookies, you only need a cup of peanut butter, a cup of sugar, and an egg. That’s it. You simply combine all three ingredients, shape them into dough balls about an inch big, and flatten them with a fork. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about eight minutes and you will have some of the best homemade cookies you ever tasted. Grab some milk, a plate of cookies, and settle in for a chat as you enjoy them.
