That said, I have a one-year-old who either wants to be held or entertained - and doesn't appreciate her mama cooking for more than 20 minutes at a time. If she does decide to entertain herself, she almost always wants to set up camp right around the oven or under the stove, which is not at all safe.
For these reasons, I find myself returning to my five favorite recipes every single week: (1) chicken enchiladas, (2) angel hair pasta with tomatoes, basil, and avocado, (3) beef stew, (4) bean and cheese burritos, and (5) soup and biscuits.
These recipes are great, but I need a wider selection to choose from. The catch? I need recipes that can be prepared and cooked in 20 minutes or less (emphasizing the word, less).
Please share cookbook titles or full recipes that meet that criteria. I'm planning to expand my cookbook library within the next month.
