Dinnertime during the week can sometimes be completely chaotic. You’ve had a long day at work (or maybe you’re a stay-at-home parent, which that comes with its own challenges), the kids are cranky, there’s homework to be done, and everyone’s hungry!
Fast-food is not an option in my house, we have the occasional pizza take-out night, but for the most part, everything is home cooked.
We don’t always have a lot of time to spare during the week to make dinner, so I teamed up with Joy to share her favorite (and some of my favorites from Joy, too) go to meals that take under an hour to prepare and cook. -Virginia
SESAME CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI SHEET PAN DINNER
This recipe requires a marinade. You can easily prep it the night before, so when you’re ready to cook dinner the next day, it’ll be soaked up in deliciousness!
HOMEMADE HAMBURGER HELPER
Y'all, I used to love hamburger helper. I thought my mom was getting fancy when she whipped out that box and threw together this meal! Here is my version so you won't have to use anything out of a box. It will bring back childhood memories for you, and your kids will be happy too!
This is a classic around these parts. It's in almost every restaurant you go to. Back in the day, when I didn't know much about food, but knew you couldn't mess up pasta (or so I thought at the time, wink wink)- this is what I would always get.
I love spice and love pasta. This dish brings both to the plate. Don't be scared of crawfish if you haven't tried them! Just be sure to buy the ones that aren't imported.
Okay... No secret here, I love pasta. And this pasta has everything I love in it! Veal, briny capers, mushrooms, cream oh my! Anytime I can make pasta into a main dish,
I'm in heaven!
