Quick & Easy Dinner Ideas

I’m all about dinners that are simple and quick, because when you’re as busy as we are with schedules all over the map, that’s what ya need. 

Hunting for actual easy dinner ideas has come to be a bit of a task. Some people think easy means 18 super obscure ingredients that I definitely don’t have, let alone even find at the grocery store. 

All of these recipes I have actually tried myself and have made over and over because they’re simple yet oh so yummy. Shout out to the bloggers who came up with these recipes because you’ve been my saving grace.  

They’re a step up from the boxed mac and cheese and Mr. Noodles I lived off of for awhile, so I give koodos to myself for actually trying to be an adult.


Quick & Easy Dinner Ideas


3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Taco Chicken from Kristine’s Kitchen

These tacos are for real the EASIEST dinner ever. Just three ingredients! And they’re super delicious and a nice change from regular old beef tacos.

Find the taco recipe here.


Creamy Spinach Tomato Tortellini from Cooking Classy

The sauce for this tortellini is actually unreal. A little bit more ingredients to this one, but oh so worth it. 

Find the tortellini recipe here.


Easy Macaroni and Cheese in the Slow Cooker from Cleverly Simple

Can’t go wrong with homemade macaroni and cheese!

Sloppy Joes

Another go to of mine because it’s super duper simple and also so yummy. Try your hand at homemade if you’d like, but the packet you can get from the grocery store tastes super delish to me. 

Goes well with french fries on the side too! (And who can turn down french fries!!)


Shrimp, Tomato and Spinach Pasta from Julia’s Album

Get in ma belllllly. This pasta is super yummy if you’re a fan of good food.

Okay okay – you may have caught that I miiiight like pasta just a wee bit. It’s a problem, okay.

I always try to sneak in some sort of protein somehow, because let’s be honest, my first choice will always be pasta LOL. 

But for real, these recipes are my go to’s when I need something super yummy but easy and quick. What is your go to meal in a hurry? I’d love some more recipes to try out!
