It was 4 o’clock again, and I had forgotten to let any sort of meat thaw for dinner. Dinnertime was rapidly approaching, and my plans of any kind of decent meal were flying out of the window because… no meat, no dinner. I live with some total carnivores! But then I remembered I had ham in the fridge, and that’s when ham and cheese lasagna roll ups popped into my mind. They’re the perfect effortless weeknight meal.

Chicken Divine

Looking for a down-home chicken recipe that the whole family will love? This cheesy chicken broccoli lives up to it's name-- Chicken Divine. It's truly divine, and is delicious served over rice or pasta. It's a great weeknight dinner that doesn't require a ton of effort.

I love when a recipe truly lives up to it’s name. Divine…. that’s a lot to live up to, a name like “Chicken Divine.” But I have to tell you, between the melty cheese sauce, the tender chicken, and the perfect pieces of broccoli, this is truly a divine dish. I also love when I can try out a recipe that’s been in the family for awhile. Now, this recipe didn’t originate with our family… my grandfather was given the recipe by a client (he was a hairdresser), who passed it along to him after she’d tried the recipe with much success in her own home. It wasn’t unusual for clients to pass along recipes they’d loved to my grandparents. That made this the first time I’d ever tried making this truly divine chicken for myself, but certainly not the last.

Mushroom Noodle Bake

Ever have those nights where you have the perfect main dish planned out, but can't think of a side to go with it? This easy mushroom noodle bake is the perfect side dish for pretty much any meat, or can be served on it's own for a delightful vegetarian casserole. Plus, since it's only got 5 ingredients, it's a great option for throwing together-- fast!

I love a good side dish. You know, those sides that can take an average dinner of chicken breasts thrown on the George Foreman from good to, well, great. I like a side dish that is hearty, that helps stretch a meal (because come on, guys, you have to eat more than just meat, right?) and, most importantly, takes very little time, effort, and crazy ingredients to make. Luckily, this mushroom noodle bake has only 5 ingredients, takes just a few minutes to throw together before popping it in the oven, and pairs well with literally any meat dish. And hey, if you’re not a carnivore, it actually makes a pretty great vegetarian casserole option, too!

Can you believe that back-to-school is just around the corner? I’m a little bit shocked, but stores already have backpacks and pencils galore, which means it’s time to start figuring out what to fix for dinner now that school is just about back in session. Being a homeschool family, it’s hard sometimes because even though we’re home all day, coming up with a dinner that won’t interrupt teaching, field trips, and more can be really tough. But this slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is perfection! It fits in perfectly with the weeknight rotation of spaghetti or tacos, and takes minutes to throw together.

Easy Cheesy (Dinner in 8 Minutes) Biscuit Pizzas

These easy cheesy mini pizzas take minutes to make, and have ingredients you probably already have in your refrigerator! That makes them the perfect candidate for an easy weeknight dinner or lunch plan! And kids love these pizzas so much!

Ugh. It was nearly 5:30, and I had forgotten to lay anything out for dinner. Again. It seems like in the summer, this happens more and more often as busy schedules take over, and Zach needed to eat before baseball practice. I asked what he wanted, and he said “Pizza!” Pizza? Usually that takes me all day because the crust has to rise from morning. How were we going to have pizza in time for practice? Easy. With biscuit dough.

Meat Lovers Pasta Bake

Do you like meat? And easy recipes? And recipes that can be made with leftovers and ingredients you have on hand?

If you answered yes, then you’re going to absolutely love this meat lovers pasta bake. If you answered no to the meat question, stick around… you can make this dish with veggies instead. But the meat part? Oh-so-good.

Crockpot Cashew Chicken

In our area, back to school is coming up fast. Today, we took our exchange student school supply shopping and just days ago, the last of Zach’s curriculum arrived for the year. There’s no shortage of planning and preparing for the school year, and that means a whole lot of busy days ahead, both as we soak up the last days of summer and prepare for the school year, and in the days ahead where we’re going to be teaching, working, and keeping the house clean.

Luckily, I have a crock pot. And trust me, I use it and use it often. I love being able to use my crock pot to keep meals easy, and starting a meal early means I get to work on other things and not worry about dinner.
