Of course that's not necessarily true, and the frozen food industry is taking steps to get the word out that frozen entrées can be healthy and appealing.

One of Swanson's 1950s ads appealed to convenience with the tag line, "I'm late — but dinner won't be." And we've never looked back; households are busier than ever, and grocery stores are saturated with choices.

Frozen dinners are still convenient and cheap, but if you don't do a little label-checking, that convenience can come at a different sort of price when it comes to your health.

In 1954, the Swanson company appeared on the frozen national food scene and marketed their frozen meals as a "TV dinner" — the phrase we still associate with these quick and easy meals — since at the same time, televisions were becoming commonplace in homes.

These quick and easy meals were also timely because in the years following World War II, women were increasingly working outside of the home, yet still largely held responsibility for preparing meals as well.

Luckily, we've got just the thing for a last-minute motivational jumpstart. You just dump the ingredients together, throw your pan in the oven, watch some TV while you wait, and before you know it, you've got a home-cooked meal on the table.

The following four recipes are all baked, healthy casseroles that take 10 minutes or less to prep.

So, you promised yourself that 2017 would be all about spending more time in the kitchen.

But, after a weekend of hangover-induced Seamless orders, it's a few days into January and that resolution hasn't even been close to implemented. Whose idea was it to start the new year on a Sunday, anyway? That term might sound less than appetizing, but a dump dinner is just another take on a one-pot wonder, except easier because it's exactly what it sounds like.
