These recipes are pretty much impossible to mess up — and none of them break the bank.
It’s officially summer, which means you probably want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible. And, of course, the price of groceries (and everything else) is skyrocketing. So I’m on the look-out for realistic, low-effort recipes that call for as few ingredients as possible.
Which is yet another reason why I really adore Trader Joe’s. I always rely on TJ’s for creative and delicious products that I can turn into easy recipes without spending a fortune. So I wanted to share a few of my favorites easy meal ideas.
Without further ado, here are a bunch of my favorite meal ideas — all using four Trader Joe’s items. Besides the ingredients listed, all you’ll need are basic ingredients from your kitchen (think: olive oil, salt, and pepper).
