I’m going to introduce you to the not so scary side of Pinterest that includes easy recipes and that won’t make your kitchen a war zone or make you cry before going to a party, they might even impress your Mom! These easy recipes have all been tested by a clueless 22-year-old (myself) so If I can do it, anyone can.

1. Charcuterie Boards

This sounds super fancy but all you need to do cut up some different cheeses, some meat, and crackers. if you’re feeling really adventurous you could add some dried fruits and nuts. There is an Instagram account (@cheesebynumbers) that is basically a paint by numbers but with cheese and it could not be simpler. Hit up your local Trader Joes to get some unique cheeses on the cheap, they also have a good selection of crackers and dried fruits. This is such an easy recipe and a ~hip~ way to impress.

2. Rotel Dip

Every family party has that one aunt who brings the same thing to every party, right? Well, this is my easy recipe. This two ingredient dip is such an easy recipe and a staple for any party with apps. First off, you cannot go wrong with Velveeta cheese, whether it be in a grilled cheese or this dip. There are so many easy recipes including Velveeta. No cheese melts like this artificial goddess of a cheese. It is very similar to the queso at chipotle except it is a million times better. Talk about an easy recipe!

3. Vegetable pizza

I know the idea of vegetables on a pizza is alarming but use this to prove to people that you are a healthy queen! This easy recipe is super simple, I personally like this more in the summer because it’s not a hot dish and can actually be a somewhat refreshing easy recipe on those days so hot that you don’t even want to eat. My mom used to make this all the time and even the vegetable hating kids loved it.

4. Garlic Toast Pizza

From one healthy pizza to a not so healthy pizza, this is a great easy recipe for a night that you have absolutely no interest in being healthy. Which everyone has and if you don’t, you should TREAT YO’ SELF.  There are only three staple ingredients in this easy recipe, more if you want to add some toppings. Texas Toast is an untapped gold mine for some, there are so many things you can do with the perfect little toasts. This is an easy recipe that you can easily spice up. This pizza makes me think of getting dominos pizza after nights out in college because of the garlic crust. So if you’re looking to relive those glory days, make this easy recipe like, now.

5. Wedge Salad

The alpha of the salads. A good iceberg wedge is a perfect light dinner or lunch. If you add some bacon and blue cheese on top, it is the chef’s kiss. As long as you know how to use a knife, this easy recipe should be pretty doable for you. It’s also nice because iceberg lettuce is the cheaper of the lettuces PLUS when you make a wedge you only use a quarter of the head so you will have plenty of leftovers for another wedge or anything else you could use the iceberg for!

Who doesn’t love a baked potato? They are one of the best comfort foods out there and although they are also not difficult, this is an easy recipe! All you need is some potatoes, cheese and whatever else you like to include on top of your normal potato making this a very easy recipe. They are almost like a combination of french fries and the toppings of a baked potato which tend to be the best part. Like baked potato nachos! Such an easy recipe for a side dish, or main dish if you really wanted.

This is how you bring the sizzling pan at Chili’s home with an easy recipe! Cut up some chicken and peppers while sipping on a margarita and you’ll feel like you’re really there but the best part is you won’t have to deal with any other people! This is a good, easy recipe to know, its a very easy recipe and considered an “adult” meal as its not a frozen burrito or a box of mac and cheese. You actually have to use the oven for this!

8. Chicken Bacon Flatbread

Going to start you off by telling you what I add to this easy recipe to make it infinitely better. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing. Add it on top before you bake this flatbread, or just dip your pieces in it. It will change the game. There are only five ingredients (six if you trust me, which you should) in this easy recipe so it really is not that complicated. I promise you can do it, I believe in you.

9. Chicken Noodle Soup

Talking about comfort food earlier in this article got me thinking about the ultimate comfort food which is chicken noodle soup, especially in the winter. This easy recipe is quick and doesn’t involve a crockpot which is an added bonus for a soup recipe. This would actually be great to pair with the wedge salad above! An easy recipe for comfort food!

10. One Bowl Brownies

Box brownies are fantastic, do NOT get me wrong. But if you’re looking to say you made something homemade (and actually be truthful) these are the next best thing! Easy cleanup and not too many ingredients! An added tip from yours truly would be to buy a can of chocolate frosting and once these bad boys have cooled, frost the top! This is an easy recipe to introduce yourself to baking.
