I usually look for recipes that are semi-homemade. Easy recipes I can make with some store bought ingredients but enough ingredients that my meal will not have too many preservatives or additives.
I good example is french toast. I wouldn't make the bread but I would use store bought bread and make the rest from scratch.
I also like to look for twists on old classics. New ingredients making burgers taste better or different ways to make fried chicken or meatloaf.
