Delicious dinner cooking can be both simple and challenging at the same time. Perhaps, the menu compilation is one of the most difficult stages of all. First, we have to consider who we are cooking for: the menu might be totally different whether we cook for a family or guests as well as whether it is a holiday or an ordinary evening. For the latter, the table setting usually looks more ordinary; however, important occasions require more formal setting. Some people think that, if you are having guests, you should choose complex and unusual recipes. This is not always true and to the point. An unusual and complicated recipe can be too difficult to implement, so we start to worry and feel anxious; this anxiety gives us a good chance to confuse ingredients and do something wrong. That is why sophisticated recipes do not always come as we expect and how we imagine them. We can see the picture and try to do the same; however, the more complicated the dish is, the more chances there are to spoil everything. In contrast to complex recipes, there are simple and familiar dinner courses you can cook fast and well, at the same time making the dinner look fine and delicious with guarantee. You may even have some extra time to decorate your masterpiece. Exquisitely and elaborately decorated dishes will be long remembered both by your family members and guests!
Let us start with appetizers. Our first choice is going to be the recipe of stuffed mushrooms. This dish is very delicious and beautiful, and it is perfect for festive table decoration whether you cook for a celebration or just an ordinary dinner. Being a cook, you will appreciate the fact that stuffed mushrooms are fast and easy to cook and, at the same time, are very good-looking and delicious. These stuffed mushrooms will make your dinner look exquisite!
Nowadays, champignons are the most common mushrooms in the world. Both the way of cultivation and the excellent taste contribute to the uniqueness of this sort of mushrooms. However, in the last century, champignons were considered a rare delicacy! They were grown in small quantities only for those who could afford them. Fortunately, times have changed, and today, we can easily decorate our tables with this no longer rare but still very original and delicious delicacy.
Here is the list of products that we need to start cooking the stuffed champignons:
Champignons (preferably large) - 500 g
Onions - 2 pcs
Chicken meet (boiled) - 300 g
Hard cheese - 150 g
First, you need to wash the mushrooms well and cut off their stems carefully. Put aside the caps, we will not need them for a while. Let us start cooking with chopping the stems and onions. The pieces should be about the same size, not too small but not too big. Both champignons and onions tend to shrink while being cooked, so you should keep it in mind while choosing the size of the pieces. The next step is to fry chopped onions and mushrooms until they become smooth golden brown, which means they are ready to be removed from the frying pan. Do not forget to add some salt and spices! The amount depends on your idea of a perfect taste. While the vegetables are on the frying pan, we have to grind the chicken in a blender and grate the cheese. Enjoy the process, it is really relaxing! After doing this, mushrooms and onions can be removed from the frying pan and mixed with chicken and cheese. The mixture that we get resembles a salad. Actually, if you try it, you will see that it also tastes like salad and can be eaten just like that; however, let us be patient and complete the cooking of our appetizer! Now, it is time to return to the mushroom caps. Once again, we wash them thoroughly and start to gently spoon the mixture that we have prepared into each mushroom cap, imagining it to be a small bowl. Do not forget to round each mushroom so that the mixture does not come out. To finalize the cooking, add some grated cheese on top of each cap, but be careful not to put too much. Place stuffed mushrooms in a baking dish and bake them for about 20 minutes at 300°C. In the end, our mushrooms should be golden brown.

Well, the appetizer is now ready. What about the main course? As a rule, this is the most important part of the meal. Therefore, we should give it some special attention. Now, it is time to think whether any of your guests are vegetarians and whether you know anything about possible allergies or other problems. Choose a dish that is likely to appeal to each and every guest of yours!
We suggest you cook another dish in the oven. It is not only delicious but also useful and very easy to cook. The dish of our choice is chicken baked with potatoes. Poultry is not less popular than other types of meat. Chicken contains the same level of protein as beef or pork but requires less time to cook. Moreover, it is assimilated by human body even easier and better. This makes chicken recipes very popular in our busy lives. Furthermore, potatoes are especially nourishing, so your guests will not complain that they remain hungry!
For this entrée you will need:
Chicken fillet - 300 g
Potatoes - 500 g
Cream - 200 ml
Eggs - 2 pcs
Bread crumbs - 3-4 tablespoons
Salt, black pepper
In order to get ready for cooking, we need to peel potatoes and wash the chicken. That is our first step that is simple and quick. It is nice to have an assistant for such matters, but anybody can handle it anyway! The next step is to cut our chicken and potatoes into pieces. Here is the question whether the pieces should be big or small? Basically, there is no difference: it is up to you and your imagination. Keep in mind that the smaller the pieces are, the less time they need to be baked. Remember as well that chicken and potato reduce in size noticeably, so you do not want to cut them into pieces that are too small!
Here is a hint for successful cooking: boil potato just a little bit before baking. It makes the dish twice as delicious! While potato is boiling in the pan, we whisk two eggs with cream, salt, and herbs. You should add 1/2 spoon of salt and 1/4 spoon of black pepper right into the whisked eggs: it will give your dish a better taste.
Now, it is time to take a baking dish and put the chicken into it; add a tiny bit of salt and black pepper on the chicken as well! The next layer is potatoes. Our potatoes should be slightly cooked and not fall apart! One more thing that we have to do is to pour our whisked eggs onto the potato layer and strew breadcrumbs all over the dish! Almost ready! Now, we can put the baking dish into the oven and bake it for around 40 minutes at 375°C. What we want to see is the golden brown top of our dish with crispy egg. Now, it is important to carefully move our chicken and potatoes on a large platter. You can decorate the dish with chives, but they should be added just before the serving because heat can destroy the flavor. Bon appetite!

Now, it is time to move to dessert! How to choose from a huge number of options? Not a simple question. For starters, let us concentrate on the simplest and the most delicious desserts. What could it be? Ice cream? Fruits? Or a pie? Perhaps, a pie is just perfect for our dinner. We can decorate it with ice cream, fruits, or chocolate. In addition, the pie that you make with your own hands will definitely surprise your family and guests!
Here we chose a recipe that stands out for its simplicity and amazing speed of preparation. You might even call it a "super-speed" apple pie if you would like. The process of cooking usually takes less than thirty minutes. Even if your guests call telling you that they have already left their house and want to make you a surprise, you can win over the situation and make a surprise for them cooking this pie fresh and hot! Note the time, and you will be surprised how quickly you get this pie done!
For the "super-speed" pie you need to have:
Flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Eggs - 5 pcs
Vanilla sugar - 0.5 tsp
Apples – 1-3 pcs
First, let us clean the apples from the skin and cut them to pieces. The bigger the apple pieces are, the more apple taste you can notice in your pie! If you want the taste to be less noticeable, you can grate the apple finely and mix it with the dough. It is up to you, and you can also try several ways and choose the one that you like the most. Now, we prefer large pieces and chop our apples accordingly. When done, put the pieces into a baking dish. Do not forget to grease it with oil: it helps our pie not to get burnt. So, the stuffing is ready.

Now let us start with the dough. Take a large bowl and pour one cup of sugar in it. Add five eggs and begin whisking those eggs with sugar. There is no need to separate whites and yolks; the only thing required is to obtain a homogeneous mixture with consistency of liquid glue. Usually, the process takes about 1 or 2 minutes if you use a mixer. Add flour and vanilla sugar to the acquired mixture. And continue to whisk! The most important thing is to get rid of the flour lumps. When the dough is ready, just pour it into a baking dish directly on top of the apples. Apples should be completely covered by dough, and this is the only secret to a successful preparation of this pie! After it is done, the pie needs to be baked in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. The perfect temperature is 300°C, but it depends on what kind of crust you like. Add some more heat if you like it brown and crispy!
Here we are. The dinner is ready; it looks good, smells fine and is very delicious from beginning to end! Now, you can enjoy your appetizer, entrée, and dessert. We hope you also enjoy all the compliments you are about to receive for this dinner. Good luck!
