Quick Dinner Recipes to Make for Your Family
I try to cook 5 nights a week. That doesn’t mean I’m cooking elaborate meals 5 nights a week but I certainly do my best to put at least something healthy on the table. That means if I server hot dogs, there is also going to be a veggie tray.
I usually give myself an hour to cook but try to make recipes that take about half an hour. Any longer than that and I end up running behind and getting dinner on the table later than I want to.
I reserve more complicated home-cooked meals for Sunday evening when I have less stress and more time to try new things.
These quick and easy dinner recipes will feed your family and they might not hate it. You never really know with kids.
