6 Easy Dinner Recipes You Haven’t Tried

It’s the flu season again, and this year it has turned our life upside down. Everyone in our family has been more or less unconscious over the last few weeks. So far, the bug hasn’t reached me (knock on wood), which is great because I have been trying to hold everything together! It’s not always easy to take care of your sick kids, while trying to work from home, and serve dinner to anyone who still has an appetite. Thank goodness I have a bunch of easy dinner recipes I always turn to, when I need to cook something super tasty with very little effort.
These are some of the recipes I have been making lately, and I guarantee they are scrumptious! If a 5-year-old, feverish child with a runny nose wants a second serving, I think it’s safe to say the food is good, haha!

These comforting, easy dinner recipes have been true lifesavers, and I am actually making #3 tonight (a steaming hot bowl of savory soup will make anyone feel better in an instant, right?) If you’ve tried some of these recipes already, I’d love to know which one was your favorite. So don’t forget to leave a comment below!

Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to throw something together for dinner and not have to burdened with standing in the kitchen for hours? Pasta casserole is a wonderful make-ahead meal for an even better time-saving measure. Simply put together all of the ingredients into a greased casserole dish and cover with aluminum foil.
