What to cook this week

Slow Cooker Maple Oatmeal By Casey Barber

Whip up this slow cooker maple oatmeal before bed and wake up in the morning to the aroma of warm cinnamon and maple syrup. Not a bad alarm clock, right? The only step left is to whip up a self-serve toppings bar filled with chopped nuts, dried fruit, brown sugar, toasted coconut, chocolate chips, and more.

Chicken Chili Tacos with Creamy Dipping Sauce By Casey Barber

To make this easy taco filling even easier, do yourself a favor and buy a rotisserie chicken. Chop chicken, add canned chiles, cheese and sauce and spread over tortillas, then roll up tightly. If you put them ahead, reduce the baking time to five minutes and then store them in the refrigerator or freezer until you’re ready to reheat them.

Tuna Macaroni Salad with Balsamic Vinegar By Gary Barande

This mayo-free macaroni salad is packed with Mediterranean-inspired ingredients like olives, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh basil. Add a can of tuna (or both) to a protein-rich lunch, dinner, or side dish. Also, this salad tastes best only when left in the fridge.

One Pot Chicken and Wild Rice in Honey Mustard Sauce By Casey Barber

Wild rice can take up to 40 minutes to cook fresh, but this recipe calls for a clever shortcut that will cut your total cooking time in half: instant rice. Add honey and mustard to the top of the cooked rice evenly with the shredded chicken breasts, then add the broth and herbs and bring to a boil. Finish by popping it in the oven until the chicken is cooked through and enjoy this delicious weekend panic night miracle.

What could be better than a cheesecake? No-bake cheesecake, that’s it. Make this creamy filling with cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and a little lemon juice and pour it over prepared (or homemade) graham cracker crust. Store it in the freezer until ready for dessert.
