15 Quick and Easy Family Friendly Dinners
I can hardly believe it, but the kids are going back to school in less than a month. I know the lazy days of summer will be missed and we will be back into crazy schedules with school, work, swim and scouting. When the days are this crazy, I need meals that can be done in 30 minutes or less. I’ve compiled a collection on foodie that includes 15 family friendly recipes that are quick, easy and kid friendly. You can see any of the recipes by scrolling through below or clicking on the collection.


Check out 15 Quick and Easy Family Recipes

You’ll notice some slow cooker recipes in this collection. My slow cooker is my go to as I can throw everything in it in the morning, not think about it all day, and then have a hot meal for my family when evening rolls around.




There are also some recipes that I haven’t tried before like the easy baked flounder recipe. My boys are definitely a fan of fish, so I’m sure it’s one that will be a hit.


Do you have meals that are your go to when you need a quick and easy meal?

    This is great for back2school time as well. I use my slow cooker all the time too, it allows me to get them going in the morning when life is not quite as hectic. Or before I’m picking kids up from school etc.

    My “go to” meal is probably meat loaf, baked potatoes, and peas. Pretty simple. I also like to make soup ahead of time and freeze so I can just throw in the crock pot in the morning.

    The “Easy Barbecued Ribs” would be a hit in our house!

    Lots of yummy sounding recipes here! My go to meal for quick, easy and healthy is quiche! It’s not only a perfect one-pot-meal but just as delicious in lunch boxes the nest day and can be eaten hot or cold 🙂 I make quiche so often I published a recipe book with over 20 of my recipes 🙂
