I am wife, mother, author and feelancer. My days tend to fly by at warp speed, so when dinner time rolls around I often find myself frustrated and uninspired. My main issue is I don’t necessarily like the idea that I am responsible for making sure everyone in our house eats. That is a big burden to bear. Not to mention, after a while you run out of stuff to cook.
There was a time when I cooked spaghetti once a week and a balanced meal consisted of baked chicken, corn and green beans. Throw a picky eater in the mix and I just want to scream! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind cooking- I mean mainly because I like to eat- but I’m impatient and long hours slaving over a hot stove is not my idea of fun.
So, recently I’ve started playing around in the kitchen googling recipes and thumbing through cookbooks. I’ve also started planning my meals in advance and I’ll take meat out of the freezer as soon as I wake up in the morning. And it’s been a game changer. All the meals I cook are 30 minutes or less. Unless I’m doing a roast, which I put in the crockpot the night before.
I have an Instagram page where I share some of my most successful meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with quick, prep tips. Follow my page @quickanddelish on Instagram for quick and delish recipe ideas that anyone can prepare!
