Published on



That’s where JOW comes in. JOW helps you create optimized grocery shopping lists, taking the whole family into account so you always buy exactly what you need. Then, we arrange for you to either pick your groceries up at a local store or to have them delivered, so that you can spend your time doing what matters most to you. We put together a list of some of our favorite recipes for 2021 that are easy to make while satisfying all of your family’s needs. 

Corn Chowder

Ah, chowder. The soup of champions! This hearty, filling, and scrumptious recipe for Corn Chowder will satisfy the entire family, no matter what time of day you serve it. 

With four minutes of prep time and only 20 minutes of cooking time, this chowder is going to taste as good as it smells. Get ready for your family to go for seconds—and thirds.

All you need to make this satisfying chowder is canned corn, garlic, potato, bacon, liquid cream, vegetable broth, and yellow onion. This recipe provides 12 grams of protein, giving your family the energy you need to have a fun-filled day together.

It’s a summer classic, but you’ll want to serve this chowder all year round. Bring it to your next summer potluck, or save it all for yourselves.

Almond Chia Pudding

Sometimes, the first meal of the day is also the most difficult. Not only do you have to get yourself ready for the day to come, but you also have to get your children ready for their days, too. 

Between waking the kids, checking early morning emails, and trying to shake away any 7 AM grogginess, breakfast can easily become relegated to take out pastries, sugary cereals, or toaster waffles.

This Almond Chia Pudding only takes 5 minutes to prepare and 5 minutes to cool, and it can help your family start their day off right with 11 grams of healthy protein. Chia seeds are also packed with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, making them a powerful source of nutrients. 

Maple syrup adds sweetness, sliced almonds provide even more protein and fiber, and almond milk gives this pudding its satisfying squish.

Best of all, this recipe is so simple and quick, you can take the time to sit down with your family in the morning and connect before a busy afternoon.

Veggie Lasagna

This delicious Veggie Lasagna dish is a family-favorite choice for vegetarians and meatless Mondays.

It only takes 10 minutes to prepare this Veggie Lasagna. Then, you can leave it in the oven for 50 minutes and spend nearly an hour bonding with your family while you wait for dinner to be ready. This meal tastes incredible, and its low-maintenance bake time makes it a wonderfully easy and simple dish. 

Gather lasagna noodles, zucchini, tomato sauce, Paris mushrooms, and a mozzarella ball using JOW’s optimized grocery lists to make this dreamy lasagna a reality.

Pair this veggie lasagna with bruschetta, breadsticks, or garlic bread to transport your family to the Italian Riviera for an evening.

Pasta Gratin with Ham

This is another hearty dish that will produce a filling meal that can easily feed the entire family, despite being easy and quick to make. Our Pasta Gratin with Ham is packed with flavor and only requires 3 minutes of prep time before it goes in the oven for 25 minutes.

The only key ingredients you’ll need to gather for this pasta gratin with ham dish are macaroni pasta, grated cheese, strips of ham, and clotted cream (which you can swap out for creme fraiche or sour cream in a pinch). 

This is the perfect comfort dinner for a chilly autumn evening or a great addition to any summer barbeque.
