For years, we have featured recipes from Chungah Rhee of Damn Delicious, from our Weekly Meal Plans to tips on how to feed a family for under $10. In fact, we just sang her praises again this past week as we prepped and cooked the annual St. Patrick’s Day feast.
What started as a Tumblr page in 2011 (no, really) has since grown into a beloved recipe resource for millions of people. Her recipes are focused on showcasing “quick and easy meals for the everyday home cook to show you that it really doesn’t take much to make a homemade meal completely from scratch.” You can find her delicious recipes on her blog of course, and also on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. And you can grab her cookbook: Damn Delicious: 100 Super Fast, Super Easy Recipes to take with you everywhere you go (because from experience, her recipes are a must-have in a Vrbo).

While every single recipe I have ever tried from Damn Delicious has turned out pretty much perfect, below are a few of my family’s favorites that are on repeat around here. Please do take some time and browse the entire blog and search for recipes that fit your likes/dislikes. And while you are there, be sure to check out the pictures of her Corgis. I mean they are just so damn cute.

This Korean Beef Bowl has been a busy weeknight workhorse in my kitchen for many years. This recipe is a twist on the traditional Beef Bulgogi. By using ground beef, it’s budget-friendly, and comes together in just 15 minutes from start to finish. And if you have leftover rice it goes even faster.

All the way back in 2016, Kate shared this recipe for BBQ Chicken Salad in a round-up of Kid Friendly Salad Recipes and it is the most requested salad for DIY dinner night from my teens. I usually use rotisserie chicken for this salad, but you could make it vegetarian by using bbq jackfruit.

Some days you just really need a comforting, creamy chicken dish and this recipe for Skillet Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Thighs is perfect. I made this last Sunday and it was a huge hit with everyone (even my kid who claims to ‘hate’ tomatoes).
What is better than combining tacos + a sheet pan? This recipe for Sheet Pan Shrimp Tacos is a fast, easy recipe that levels up #TacoTuesday. We are huge fans of frozen shrimp here at Cool Mom Eats as they are a nutritionally-dense source of protein that cooks up fairly quickly!

And finally, this recipe for Instant Pot Cheeseburger Mac n Cheese is my 18yo son’s most-requested meal during the week. He can nearly eat an entire pot after a late-night practice. This is not the “hamburger helper” you remember. It’s soooo much better. The last time I made this, I used ground Beyond Beef and no one even noticed, so I have worked it into our #MeatlessMonday rotation.
