Meals in Minutes: Easy Dinner Recipes

Posted by  ·  January 16, 2015  ·  Last Updated: August 19, 2017

Weeknights are busy nights! We are running between work and sports and then there is homework, often dinner becomes an after thought at my house! We are in need of easy dinner recipes. With some planning I think we can do a bit better. Many times I need my husband and kids to help with dinner prep and these recipes are so easy they can make the whole meal! Here is a collection of recipes I love, and many I have found to add to our new dinner routine.  How do you make meal times work at your house? I would love to hear in the comments.
