I am a person who loves to cook and 10 months into the pandemic, I am dreading coming up with dinner every night. I can’t imagine the dread if I also didn’t enjoy cooking! Today on the blog I am sharing my Top 5 recipes for busy parents. Hopefully this might spark some inspiration for next week’s dinner rotation!
is a favorite in our house and it’s so simple because there are a million easy variations. I’ve used: ground beef, ground pork, and ground turkey…whatever I have on hand. I saute my meat of choice with diced onions to start and then add whatever I can find of the following:
Only have a few of these things? Doesn’t matter! Add some seasonings and it all tastes good!
Those who follow me on Instagram know that we are a bit fanatical about pizza in this house. I plan to write a separate how-to post for pizza dough but pizza is a weekday staple here. If making dough is too overwhelming, fresh dough can be bought at the store, usually in the bakery/deli section. Pick up a couple balls on your weekly shop and you have an easy dinner that’s ready in ~20 minutes.
III. This Korean Beef Bowl which we serve with rice and either broccoli, green beans, or pea pods.
IV. This One Pot Burrito Bowl which we usually serve with sliced avocado and plain greek yogurt
V. Smitten Kitchen’s Sweet Potato Tacos. The best thing about these is that all the ingredients can be made ahead of time if you’re pressed for time in the evenings. My kids don’t eat the pickled onions but I pile them on like they’re going out of style so don’t skip this topping! We usually serve with avocado and rice.
If you want a weekend recipe that will cook all afternoon and fill your house with the most delicious smells, this is one of our family favorites.
"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."
