A roundup of over 50 easy meals including quick weeknight recipes, slow cooker recipes, and one-pot recipes to help feed your family delicious food.
Instead of sharing one recipe today, I’m sharing over 50 easy recipes. The recipes below are divided into major categories (chicken, beef, pasta, etc.) and are ALL weeknight-friendly. Whether that means 30 minutes or less, one-pot, slow cooker, or just 5 ingredients, I’ve collected all my favorite simple dinners from my blog and from around the food blogging community. The recipes are easy and many of them are fresh and fairly inexpensive so you don’t have to break the bank to get your family’s nutrients in.
I took the time to create this huge easy meals recipe roundup because SO many of you have told me that you struggle with planning easy meals for your family through the week. Now that it’s back-to-school time, that problem is even more challenging. I hope this will help you as you plan out your meals! Let me know if I’m missing any of your favorite recipes from other blogs, I’d love to add them in! One last note, the recipes are all found via the link below each picture. Please click over to that link to get the recipe and if you want to pin that recipe to Pinterest, please do it from that link so the pin points directly to the recipe!
