It has been a WEEK, my friends!
If you guys follow me on Instagram (you can find me right HERE), then you saw how three kids in sports + my job as a blogger/instagrammer + my job as a mom and wife = dinners are SERIOUSLY suffering right now. If you missed this rant in my stories, sorry ;).
I keep it real on the ‘gram, that’s for sure :).
So, with all that being said, I decided to round up some of my favorite, EASY, quick, family-pleasing recipes!
Every mama’s favorite – CROCKPOT, or what some people refer to as “Slow Cooker”, recipes!
And if you’re not familiar with the crockpot, GET familiar!!! A great one that works well and is programmable is on sale for under $40 bucks HERE.
Let’s get started!
Recipe #1 – the absolute best spaghetti sauce you will EVER taste in your whole entire existence!!
I’ve made this recipe at LEAST 25 times… it has converted friends who thought they didn’t like spaghetti sauce, and my non-spaghetti loving husband. It is that good.
Recipe #2 – Zuppa Toscana Soup
If I could pick one soup to eat for the rest of my life it would be this one. I am always amazed that even my pickiest kid eaters chow down bowls of this every time I make it. So easy to throw in first thing in the morning, and it’s hot and ready for you by dinner time!
Recipe #3 – Shredded Beef Roast
This is SO dang easy, and so dang versatile!!! I use it for tacos, quesadillas, bbq sandwiches, enchiladas, even salads. Beyond good!
Recipe #4 – Broccoli Mac and Cheese
I have tried at least 30 recipes from this site, and never ONCE has one been a fail. I love when there’s a tried and true site you don’t have to worry whether or not the food will turn out. This one is a total crowd pleaser with kids and adults alike. YUMMY! Who doesn’t love mac and cheese?!
Recipe #5 – Ranch Taco Chicken
My kids LOVE this on nachos, in tortillas, or even in mini bags of chips as “Walking Tacos”. It is delish, and I always make enough to freeze some of it for lunches and later meals!
That’s it! Dying to hear if you try any of them out!
Or if you have a favorite crockpot recipe, help a mama out and leave it in the comments.
Are you a crockpot lover, or nervous to try it?!?!
