Posted: Updated:

By Kate Rockwood; Recipes by Marcia Kiesel and Liz Pearson

Grocery list as long as your leg? Pass. A shopping cart full of expensive, exotic spices? No, thanks. On nights when the question "What's for dinner?" induces dread, a streamlined recipe can be the stress-relieving answer. To ensure a dish retains its most deliciously essential components, reach for ingredients that pack bold flavors, such as bright lemons and spicy Spanish chorizo. Clever uses for packaged items -- like transforming premade pie dough into the flaky crust of a Latin American–style turnover -- can also cut prep time. With these uncomplicated dishes, you'll find that good things really do come in threes.
