Easy Recipes, Kitchen Shortcuts, and Cant Live Without Meals

I don’t cook a lot of fancy Instagram-able recipes. I don’t pride myself in being a gourmet cook. And if buying a frozen meal helps you eat at home – then it’s worth it!

But, I do love having a family that eats at home – skipping the restaurant calories and prices. So, I have found a lot of easy recipes, kitchen shortcuts, and “must have” dinner ideas to make this possible! Please excuse the cell phone photos – the recipes are way better than they are :).

I also co-wrote a menu plan for exactly the same purpose. This menu plan has simple ingredients – a short grocery list – and is the perfect solution when you don’t have time to cook dinner! Make sure to check it out here.
