Cooking With Convenience Foods

Collection of convenience food recipesjump to the recipes

Of course, if we had the time, money, and energy to make everything from scratch we would, wouldn't we? But let's face it, that's not a reality for most of us (at least not every day!). So, cheat a little and sneak some convenience items into your recipes without anyone knowing! Another bonus is that canned and boxed goods have a longer shelf life than fresh ingredients so many of these recipes can be made without a trip to the store.
