Easy Dinner Recipes and Menus
We've put together eight weeks worth of easy dinner recipes, complete with the easy recipes for each day's main dish and side dishes.
Click on the link for each week to get the full week of recipes and the meal plans that go with each day. Plan ahead and forget worrying about coming up with dinner ideas.
These are simple, tasty home cooked meals our families have served over the years. Everyone at Moms Who Think is family, and while some love to cook, there are others who want to get a great dinner on the table without any fuss. They're the bakers in our extended family, so planning easy dinners leaves more time for whipping up snicker doodles with the kids or a cheesecake for a family gathering.
If you're watching your waistline or just trying to eat healthier, try the Eight Weeks of Healthy Dinner Recipes right after the easy dinner recipes. They are tasty, healthy and just as easy to make as the traditional easy dinners!
Kitchen Tip of the Day
Avoiding Tomato Sauce Stains
If you hate the red rings left on Tupperware or plastic bowls due to sauce based meals, try this quick tip. Spray your plastic wear with a little bit of cooking spray before pouring in your tomato based sauce and it will store nicely with no ring.
