You’ll also find new recipe ideas for breakfast, snack and dessert so that cooking for your family is as simple as it possibly can be!
This Week’s Secret To Success
This week’s dinner recipes and meal ideas are loaded with flavors and favorites your family is going to love. But what are you going to love about it?
- new dinner ideas to breathe a little life into that dinner rotation
- not having to come up with meal ideas on your own
- the versatility of these dinner menus
- how easy it is to put these family meals together
This week’s meals work as to make your life easy by making the most of convenient cooking methods like the slow cooker, one dish recipes and 9×13 casseroles.
Additionally, balancing recipes that require a little more cooking (like fettuccine alfredo) with recipes that are quick and simple (like a big dinner salad) make it easier to put together a whole meal without a lot of time in the kitchen.
Lastly, these meals are versatile. Don’t have the time to make all the side dishes? Just make a big batch of slower cooker black eyed peas while you are at work, running errands or at ball games and use them to round out both meals, making this week even easier!
