Let’s keep dinner simple tonight, shall we?
We love the ease of preparing delicious dinners with a short list of simple ingredients. In fact, we have our own special name for them: Dad Dinners!

We love these kinds of dinners so much we put together a little roundup of our favorites from around the web.
