Family Sized Pizza (using Rotisserie Chicken & Homemade 2 Ingredient Pizza Dough) Maybe I’m a bit lazy. Maybe its just smart. Not sure. But I do know that making a half sheet pan pizza is a quick way to get a whole lot of pizza on the table without the fuss.
Pizza nights have now become super easy. No more cute round individually customized pizzas. Uh uh. Those days are long gone. Now its half an half oven tray pizzas (usually two because that’s how many I can fit into my oven).
Easy Mac ‘n Cheese. This Clean eating Mac and Cheese recipe is a family classic that shows up regularly in our house.
Before we started eating clean, I would buy those nasty boxes of mac ‘n cheese from the Supermarket. The ‘just add one ingredient’ type. It was a quick meal that everyone loved, so it was also one of the first meals that I decided to remake using real ingredients.
And I’m SO glad I did. This is not only healthier and made with Real food ingredients, but it tastes so much better.
Meal on a Stick: Beef & Vegetable Kebabs. Add some fun to a mid week dinner with this easy, All-in-one Meat and vegetable dinner with a twist.
Absolutely no after dinner clean up and guaranteed to delight every member of your family.
Healthy Chicken Stroganoff. I’ve been making this Healthy Chicken Stroganoff dish for years and it’s one of the recipes that’s part of our families regular dinners.
It tastes like way more work than it is: I’ve made this for dinner parties and made this when time’s short, either way it always turns out good and the kids and adults both love it. Total time? 20 minutes :)
Kids Carbonara. One of our kids’ favorite weeknight meals. This fast and easy kids Carbonara pasta dish made with spaghetti and bacon in a creamy sauce, and ready in 20 minutes!
Quick Soba Noodles. Can’t decide what to make for Dinner tonight?
Try these 20 Minute, rather delicious weeknight quick soba noodles. Tender strips of chicken, sautéed broccoli and a sweet and tangy noodle sauce.
Pop all the ingredients on the table and let the kids make their own. Top with a creamy mushroom sauce for the best burger ever.
20 Minute Skillet Chicken & Parmesan (this recipe uses a store bought pasta sauce. Check ingredients to make sure it contains only real food ingredients like tomato and herbs and you’ve got it covered)
15 minute garlic lime cashew zoodles (I make quite a few changes to this recipe when making it for my family – I use standard wholewheat fettuccine or rice noodles because I don’t have a spiraliser and I also purchase ready shredded carrot and cabbage veggie mix in a bag – as a fast food option).
Chicken and Noodle Stirfry (We make this at least twice a month)
You can add anything to these as long as you include cheese: some of our combinations are: chicken, cherry tomatoes, cheese | ham, tomato, mushroom, pasta sauce and cheese (tastes like pizza) | shredded chicken, Avocado and cheese | You are only limited by your imagination.
