Easy Meal Ideas:
Cook Up Healthy, Wholesome Meals for Your Family!
It's way too easy to fall into a rut when it comes to cooking. I'm sharing these easy meal ideas with you because I know the challenge of coming up with new recipes!
Let me start by saying that I am not a cooking fanatic. Really. However, I love to bake. Like, love. Sadly, this hobby is slightly incompatible with my dad's love of healthy eating. I always feel slightly guilty whenever I whip up something wicked.....visions of my family members dying in agony from sugar diabetes as a direct result of my brownies floats in my head all too often.
So, when it comes to desserts, I'm constantly trying to tone them down. Either make them healthier, make them less frequently, or just not make them at all.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to rev up my love of cooking. Because I know that easy meal ideas are going to be far more useful in my future than knowledge of how to assemble plain old chocolate chip cookies. I'm on a journey, trying to find easy meal ideas that are healthy, filling, and most of all, EASY.
Not only can it be hard to come up with easy meals that are new and delicious, another difficulty (like I just said) is finding healthy meal ideas. These days, many moms are finding it easier to simply make a meal from a box; but that's just not healthy. There are so many preservatives, chemicals, and other yucky things in boxed foods that you don't want to serve your family. I know it might be a whole lot quicker to whip up a Hamburger Helper or Velveet Mac'n Cheese, but really, a healthy meal is so much better for you - plus it's better tasting.
But I'm Too Busy!
I know, I know; I am too! But I figure that cooking is something I've got to get handled, because sooner or later I'll be "married, pregnant, and barefoot in the kitchen."
Hopefully by that time, I'll be pumping out great food instead of watching my man choke on cardboard meals from the store. At this point, I'm trying to satisfy the hungry demands of my four constantly starving brothers. :-)
Thus begins my journey of finding, testing, and sharing with you easy meal ideas.
My Collection of Easy Meal Ideas
Here you'll find lots of different ideas for meals, desserts, breakfasts, snacks, and more. My goal is to add one new recipe per week, so keep checking back for the latest!
I am not by any means an expert...I'm simply learning how to make good meals in the easiest way possible.
Many of these recipes are healthy; some are a little more indulgent. But I like to balance everything out this way; use healthy meal ideas for most of the time, and then feel free to indulge now and then. :-)
Homemade Pizza Recipe
I used to despise homemade pizza until I found this great recipe. And actually; it was a group effort. My brother discovered the crust recipe, and I came up with the final pizza recipe. Delish!
