I don’t know about you, but dinner has become quite the challenge as of late. Every night it seems someone has to be somewhere. The concept of a nightly family dinner is a sad joke in my house. If we can sit down once or twice a week with the majority of us – I take that as a win! So most nights I am throwing chicken nuggets in the oven, mac & cheese on the stove and some nights, it is a quick bowl of cereal. On the nights that we can actually sit down for dinner, I am usually still running a carpool here, there and everywhere and don’t have much time to even throw something together AND then, who knows who in my family will actually eat it (we have some picky eaters around here) – top that off with my lack of cooking skill and Houston, do we have a problem!!!
This challenge motivated me to try to find some better alternatives for dinner – when I say “better” – I mean quick, easy and ingredients that I would already have in my house! So, here is my list of some new quick and easy family friendly recipes that I am going to try around here!
Homemade Pizza Rolls | The Taylor House
These scream my name – everything on the ingredients list is something I already have at my house AND my kids will love them!
This is actually a family favorite in my house! It is super easy and you will have most of the ingredients in your house already!
Oven Baked Meatball Sandwiches | Home Cooking Memories
My son, Joey, will be all over this! Meatball subs are his FAVORITE. This recipe uses homemade meatballs, but I have a bag of frozen meatballs in my freezer at all times – this is a total no brainer!!

This is a fast and easy version of a non-fried chimichanga!
