10 Recipes to Make for Dinner

what to make for dinnerBourbon Flank Steak from Brenda at Meal Plan Magic – She has had this meal on her regular family dinner rotation for years and gives easy instructions on how to make it into a simple freezer meal that is sure to please.

Stir-Fry Orange Beef Lettuce Cups from Christina at A Closet Writer – I share her love of lettuce wraps and she has found this recipe using beef which ended up to be her favorite dinner recipe from the entire month {which means it had some pretty tough competition}.

Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps from Jessica at My Baking Heart – Yay!   I am so excited to have another lettuce wrap recipe to try.   This one is based on my very favorite lettuce wraps in the whole world…Pei Wei’s.   Since there is NOT a Pei Wei within 20 miles of my house, this dinner recipe is going on the ASAP list.

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos from Arena at The Nerd’s Wife – These look AMAZING.   Oh, and easy!   Arena put them into the slow cooker before church and served 10 adults in the afternoon.   This is a definite must-try.

Spicy Italian Crockpot Beef from Lori at A Day in Motherhood – Another slow cooker dinner recipe to try which makes me really happy! She tweaked a few things about her husband’s favorite recipe to improve the nutrition, and it was a great success.

Natchitoches Meat Pies from Trista at Mommy Upgrade – Yes, she even explains how to pronounce that!   She tries out several modifications of the famous meat pies highlighted in the film, Steel Magnolias.   I loved that she worked on a healthier update, and you will be interested in her conclusion!

Texas Pioneer Pot Pie from Allie at Screwed Up Texan – She had me at pot pie, and with closer examination I can’t wait to try it!   This looks SO good and I can just imagine how the kitchen would smell with an oven full of pot pies just before dinner.

Dijon-Wine Steak Kabobs from Crystal at Crystal and Comp – Crystal promises that this dinner recipe only take 30 minutes and are perfect with the mushroom wild rice recipe that is also included.   I think my kids would love the idea of eating off a stick.

Mushroom Swiss Steak and Potatoes from Amy at Mom’s Toolbox – This recipe is one of her family’s favorites from $5 Dinners which makes it not only yummy, but affordable.   Amy also has some great ideas for frugal pairings.

Pizza Runzas from me here at June Cleaver Nirvana – I pizza-ized my family’s favorite recipe {dinner OR lunch}, Cheeseburger Runzas, to decrease the fat content and increase the vegetable content.   It was a big hit and something that I will make again.

I hope you will try some of these favorite dinner recipes.   It has been a pleasure to work with the 9 bloggers mentioned above for the last month.   The photos that you see to the right were borrowed from each of their posts.
