One Pot Meals

After a long day of work, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time preparing a home-cooked meal. We often find ourselves too tired to spend hours in the kitchen and instead opt for a frozen meal or takeout. An all-in-one meal that can be prepared with little effort and fewer pots is way more appealing. Believe it or not, using just one pot, you can sauté, toss, bake, simmer, or roast an easy and delicious meal for the entire family. 

Below are a few of our favorite one pot recipes to help you streamline your dinner prep and satisfy your family’s craving for a home-cooked meal after a busy day.

Toss It

For a twist on the traditional pot pie recipe, make this Skillet Chicken Pot Pie using Libby’s® Mixed Vegetables, which is ready in less than one hour.

Taco Creations

In honor of National Taco Day on October 4, Libby’s® wants to help you celebrate the beloved Mexican dish with a culinary fiesta. Tacos are one of the rare foods that can be consumed for any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The traditional taco consists of a corn or flour tortilla stuffed with your favorite fillings, including beef, chicken, seafood, vegetables and cheese. However, the taco has evolved over the years to be consumed in a variety of ways. Below you will find a few of our favorite non-traditional taco recipes to help you celebrate this special day!


Skip the tortilla with these delicious Turkey Taco Starters filled with Libby’s® Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, along with lean ground turkey, black beans and chopped vegetables. An easy spin on the traditional taco makes for an easy weeknight meal for the entire family.

How to Prep for the Worst: Storm Preparedness

Just in time for peak Atlantic hurricane season (and in light of recent predictions that winter 2016 will be particularly harsh), we pulled together simple tips for storm preparedness. Whether you’re at risk for extreme rain, snow, wind or something in between, take these precautions today and ensure your peace of mind tomorrow.      



Safety Comes First


Fully stock a First Aid kit that’s easily accessible. While you’re at it, set aside a seven-day supply of any prescription medications as well as medical items (i.e. contact lenses, hearing aids, glasses, etc.). Also good to stow away: a flashlight (with extra batteries), a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, a cell phone (with charger) and warm blankets and clothing for all family members.

Squirrel Away Sustenance


Section off a corner of your pantry with a three-day emergency supply of food and water. Allocate one gallon of water per person per day. On the food front, non-perishable, low-sodium snacks, like canned fruits and vegetables (Libby’s® has a wide selection) are ideal, as well as canned juice, canned meat, peanut butter, jelly, unsalted crackers, energy/protein bars, trail mix, nuts, cereal and cookies.

Protect Valuables

Store important documents—passports, Social Security cards, birth certificates, insurance policies etc.—in a waterproof container. It’s also a good idea to make several copies of each and stash them in a separate, secure location, like a family member’s house or a locked cabinet at work.

There are plenty more prep tips for all types of emergency situations available through the American Red Cross. Visit the for more.

Are you cooking with Dexter? (or Kate or Josh?)

If you read the New York Times, chances are that you have come across “Cooking with Dexter”, a wonderful little column about a man who frequently cooks with his son Dexter. Dexter is five years old, and the father and son embark on many funny and touching culinary adventures that ultimately bring them closer together.

So here’s the big question – are you cooking with your kids and, more importantly, should you?


When was the last time you had a conversation with your teen? Yeah, exactly. Cooking encourages you to spend time together and catch up on each other’s day.

You wouldn’t send your kids out in the world without teaching them how to drive, would you? Cooking is a vital life skill. When your children grow up, they will thank you for teaching them how to fend for themselves. Now if only you could make them appreciate ballet…

You chop, I stir. Cooking encourages teamwork. Break down dinner into manageable tasks, and suddenly everyone is invested in the final result.

So that’s what a calorie is! We’re always talking about eating healthy, but actually making your own meals puts things in perspective. When kids can see exactly what they’re putting into their bodies, they’ll understand nutrition a lot better than if they read about it in a textbook.

Making mistakes and burning the potatoes together is half the fun. The best thing about cooking with your kids is that neither of you has to be a culinary genius to do it. And now, nobody can complain that they don’t like what’s for dinner.

My New York Celebration of Get Back to the Table Month!

Sara EvansYesterday, I joined Libby’s Vegetables to celebrate Get Back to the Table Month at South Street Seaport in New York! It’s always fun to meet fans, and judging the Libby’s Table-gating Recipe Contest was a great experience! All of the finalists were a delight and I definitely have a lot of new ideas for recipes to make for Jay and the kids when I get home. Everything was delicious, and I want to extend a special congratulations to Karen Fausz, who won a trip to Daytona Beach, FL for her family! My most cherished memories from my childhood took place during family dinners. My mom prepared a home cooked meal every night and there never was any question that we’d all come together at the end of the day to eat and share stories. I just couldn’t imagine not providing the same experience for my own children. As a mom, dinnertime is still a tradition that is near and dear to my heart and there are a lot of benefits to eating as a family. I’ve made it a personal goal to eat dinner at home with my family at least three times a week. You can read my own family dinnertime tips and stories here. Plus, if you haven’t already, listen my version of the classic Libby’s jingle on the Get Back to the Table homepage! And, there is still time to celebrate Get Back to the Table Month with your family! Check out the finalist’s recipes in Libby’s CANvenient Recipe Database and get cooking! Be sure to check out Libby’s new Twitter feed to get delicious recipes, great tips and pictures from yesterday’s event!
