Healthy and Delicious Dinners

Are you often running out of ideas on what to serve your family for dinner? My family loves to try different recipes, and they easily get bored when I make the same meal, that’s why I decided to plan our meals. With menu planning, I save money, and there’s a lot of new healthy and delicious dinners that I can serve my family every day.

Easy Dinner Recipes

Dang! It is 4:45. Those people are looking at me again. They are staring at me. They are saying something that resembles English but I can’t be sure since it is being spoken at an octave that I never want to hear again. They keep repeating the same phrase over and over again and each time I try to force it out of my mind as I answer the last email. I need an easy dinner recipe and I need one yesterday.

They are “hungry.” They are so “hungry”.

I mean they haven’t eaten in at least two hours and the world may collapse like a southern bell in the heat.

What is a mom to do? What is a dad to do? How do we stop the madness and get dinner going?

So I pull out my list of these Easy Dinner Recipes

Then I go through my cabinet and pull out what I have and match it one of these amazingly easy, healthy, and gluten-free recipes.

Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

I get a lot of magazines. The one magazine that I love is Family Circle. I got this super Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder recipe that I wanted to share with you.

Here is what I would change. I would use frozen corn. It was difficult to get the corn off the cob when the kids were starving. Our son can’t eat seafood so I took some out of the crockpot for him and his sister before I added the crab. The other thing I would change is I would hide the leftovers from my husband. This soup was yummy!!!!  I hope you enjoy. It cost about $16 but it made two complete meals and a lunch. I could have made it cheaper but I bought the larger can of crab (located in the fresh fish section of your grocery store) instead of the amount the recipe called for.

Steakhouse Potato Soup in 5 Minutes? Believe it! Soup’s On!

Disclosure:My family happily ate their fill of Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Potato Soups as part of the #IdahoanSteakhouseSoups and Mom It Forward Blogger Network Campaign. All opinions and full bellies are our own.

Do you have an item that you never eat at home but always order when dining out if it is available on the menu? Something delicious that you love but just don’t want to put forth the effort to make it at home? Maybe it is something that can only be done right by your favorite restaurant. For me that item is steakhouse potato soup. I absolutely love thick hearty chunky potato soup but I can’t quite seem to make it as good as my favorite restaurants and certainly can’t get it on the table quickly. Until now.

 

Idahoan Steakhouse Potato Soup tastes like slow cooked and simmered soup but is ready in just five minutes

Hoppin John Recipe

 For many years, black-eyed peas have been eaten on New Year’s Day in hopes of bringing good luck in the coming year. Black-eyed peas are traditionally cooked with ham or salt pork, as the hog symbolizes prosperity. Nowadays, we still cook the black-eyed peas with ham or the ham hock because (many times) we have it left over from our Christmas meal. And a Classic Hoppin John Recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat black-eyed peas. Continue reading
