Cooking doesn't have to be a chore. Why make it difficult—when it can be easy?

When you're juggling a job, kids, pet, house, spouse, you-name-it—it can be tough to resist the urge to toss a frozen meal in the oven and call it a day. Stacie Billis knows the challenge of feeding your family well, without stress. Make It Easy's 120 recipes prove that you don't have to be only a scratch cook or convenience cook. You can be both, and there's no shame in using store-bought ingredients when you're in a pinch. Stacie's got a guide to the healthiest shortcuts in the supermarket and three big tips for making it easy:

1. Go between scratch and homemade with her handy shopping guide.
2. Mix and match recipes that build on the same ingredients.
3. Break any rule that makes you want to bolt from your kitchen.

With recipes for: Blueberry Almond Polenta, Country-Style Greek Salad, Slow Cooker Hoisin Pulled Pork, No-Fuss Roasted Paprika Chicken, Chili-Rubbed Steak Tacos, Salmon Rice Bowl, Parmesan Roasted Broccoli, Easy Food Processor Pizza Dough, Gingered Peach Crisp, Hummingbird Muffins, Bacon Cheddar Waffles...and many more!
