We’re all busy, but that doesn’t mean we have to eat like we are. You don’t have to settle for feeding your family commercially packaged meals full of sodium and preservatives or fat-laced fast food. Quick and healthy meals from your very own kitchen are easy with delicious recipes like
Southwestern Baked Cheese Dip
Thai Chicken Wraps
Walnut Spinach Salad
Homestyle Mac & Cheese
Slow Cooker Pork Chops
Oven Roasted Orange Chicken
Grilled Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches
Spicy Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry
Mexican Chocolate Mousse
and many more
From quick meals made on the grill or in the sauté pan to crockpot dishes that require little prep and cook while you’re out for the day, the recipes in this cookbook are tasty and nutritious–and require less hands-on preparation than traditional meals. Easy appetizers and desserts; one-dish casseroles and pastas; simple soups, salads, and side dishes; and even fast breakfasts round out the selections. Meals that are freezer-friendly are marked for those who want to make ahead.
Give your family the best–the easy way!
There was a time in my life that I enjoyed making dinner. I loved the experimentation and the joy of cooking for my family. I felt like I accomplished a great task by satisfying the hunger of my family with a delicious meal. My pride enjoyed hearing the compliments and my children asking me to make their favorite meal. Then something happened. I had two more children, gained a business, a job, and had middle school, elementary school along with Kindergarten to homeschool in one year. My love of cooking dwindled along with the time on my hands. Instead of casually setting out to make dinner I was in a constant rush. I started to make quick meals that lacked in quality and taste. I figured that “mom’s cooking” was just not going to be something my kids missed upon moving out. Now, there is a good chance that even with no time on my hands my kids will remember good home cooked meals with Don’t Panic, Quick, Easy, and Delicious Meals for Your Family. The recipes are easy to follow with ingredients easy to find, with no more than 30 minutes of prep time if that. Some recipes take about ten minutes! You will find breakfast, appetizers, dinners, desserts and crockpot recipes. I am making my way through this book since so far everything has been a hit!
