Never wonder “What’s for Dinner?” again! Here you’ll find all of our best main dish recipes for dinner inspiration.

I’ll admit it. Although we cook for a job and enjoy creating recipes for you, I often find it really hard to find something to put on the dinner table. I often think I need to always have new main dish recipes to try, but sometimes grandma’s old fashioned recipes are just what I need.

This website is our collection of some of the best old classics, peppered with twists on original recipes with beef, chicken, pork and more. You’ll even find vegetarian recipes for Meatless Monday!

What is the difference between dinner and supper?

Dinner usually refers to the main meal of the day, whether midday or in the evening, and is normally formal. Supper is a term for a meal served in the evening, normally light and informal.

What time should you eat dinner?

Generally speaking, it is better to eat your main meal of the day before 6:30 PM. Of course this all depends on your schedule, but if you eat a large meal too late in the day, it can affect your sleep and may not be the best for your health. It’s good to let your dinner digest slightly before heading to bed.
