Instead of turning to pizza delivery or fast food, start using some of these 17 ideas and tips Bon Appetit offers to keep healthy and easy dinner options right in your kitchen so you can throw something great together in just minutes and look like you have been thinking about it all day. Check it out!

Tomorrow should be the day our new appliances come, and hopefully, that will complete our kitchen. It’s been tough trying to cook meals just using an electric pressure cooker, a sandwich press and two small electric burners we borrowed, so it will be great to have a stove again that I can with each day. Fingers crossed it works out tomorrow, and I can get back to recipes!

Even under the best of circumstances, most of us are going to have days or nights where you want your dinner to be as easy as possible. Beyond getting your meals from a restaurant or take out place, this means buying items that make cooking fast and easy for you and your family.

Serious Eats has put together 22 items that you should try to avoid buying and instead make use of better tasting alternatives, often things you can do all on your own, to save you money and give you better flavor.
