Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

We’ve all been there- an unexpected visitor pops up or your family decides it’s your turn to host New Year’s celebration- only someone forgot to tell you that, or didn’t do so with enough notice. Now, you’re under pressure to present a suitable dinner that you know everyone will love.

Or what about a hot summer day, when you have a spur-of-moment revelation that the pool in your backyard would be so much better with friends to enjoy it with, and now, you’ve got little time to prepare snacks for your guests.

These scenarios, and others like them are part of life, and though the mere thought of these occurrences can seem stressful, they certainly don’t have to be! That’s because there are plenty of all-star recipes that can be made in less than 30 minutes and are terrific for any occasion. Take a look at some of our favorites.

Cheddar Stuffed Burgers

So your kid’s friend came over to study and now he’s staying over for dinner. The problem is, you had decided on leftovers, but there simply isn’t enough for your new guest. The answer is simple. This Cheddar Stuffed Burger recipe can be prepared in just twenty minutes and uses staple kitchen items like ground beef, cheddar cheese and avocados. Out of ground beef? No problem. Grab that beef round or sirloin steak out of your freezer because you’re going to whip up Classic Steak Sandwiches instead. All you need for this speedy meal is seasoning courtesy of beef Bouillon, sandwich bread and a jar of good old-fashioned mayo.

Creamy Black Bean and Corn Salad

Maybe it isn’t you, but a close friend that decides to do a last minute get together. You’re invited of course, but you don’t want to show up empty handed, so don’t! A black bean, corn, tomato and onion salad can quickly be assembled in just 10 minutes. While the preparation is simple, a twist of lime will make sure the flavor isn’t! And if it’s a heartier dish you wish to present, go with a flavorful Beef Picadillo that takes just twenty five minutes to cook. This dish’s combination of flavorful ingredients, like ground beef, olives and raisins, will knock everyone’s socks off.

Tacos de Carne Asada

It’s a lazy summer afternoon and you’ve spent the day indoors. Wanting to break out of the funk, you gather a last minute group of friends and head to a nearby park for a fun afternoon fiesta featuring Carne Asada. Don’t worry- you don’t need beef that’s been marinated overnight. Instead, try our trusty Tacos de Carne Asada recipe, which guarantees tasty tacos without any overnight prep and takes just 25 minutes from start to finish. The tasty cabbage slaw is an added bonus! Don’t forget to top your tacos off with a memorable guacamole recipe, just like our unique Vegetable Guacamole. Everyone can smash an avocado, but this unique variation adds a package of Vegetable recipe mix that adds tons of flavor. It’s sure to be one of the best guacamole recipes your friends have ever tried.

Coconut-Curry Shrimp

Ever spaced on your spouse’s birthday? It’s just been such a tough week at the office and you honestly just haven’t had any time to think about a birthday party, or to go out and buy a gift. Not to worry. If you’ve got 30 minutes before your spouse gets home then you’ve got enough time to make it a special evening. It’s exceedingly easy to put together an exciting Coconut-Curry Shrimp dinner, but the flavors are so complex and exotic it really seems as though it takes much more effort. Pair that entree with a glass of champagne and some soft music and voila! You’ve got a romantic birthday dinner date your spouse will love. Of course, no dinner date would be complete without dessert, so keep the theme going by inviting your significant other to make dessert with you. The fresh flavor of a Cantaloupe Soup with Chipotle Cream is the perfect way to end your meal and it’s a super easy and fast way to spend some quality time with your spouse on their special night.

Southwestern Taco Salad

Sometimes, we’re expecting a night out only to have our companions cancel last minute. When that happens, there’s usually no dinner planned. Thank goodness for staple pantry ingredients! With flour tortillas, canned black beans, Spanish Rice sides and cheddar cheese, you can whip up playful Southwestern Taco Salads that can be dressed up with your favorite ingredients. What’s that? But you were going to have Italian? No problem, you still can. With a convenient Alfredo Broccoli Pasta Side, chopped tomatoes and chicken breast, you can enjoy a delicious Alfredo Broccoli with Chicken dish in less than half an hour and from the comfort of your home.

So you see, a last minute change in plans doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Add our all-occasion quick & easy recipes to your growing list of tried and true dishes and you’ll never be unprepared in the kitchen again!
