When I was a new mom, cooking felt really overwhelming. Though I was skilled in a lot of other areas, I needed practical help with how to use the stove and burners! I ended up coming upon a blog of a homeschool mom who shared some healthy and simple recipes that I could easily start with on my cooking journey. I was so grateful! Her encouragement helped me start to love the kitchen, even with kids running under my feet.

Because of that, I wanted to include a section on some of our family-favorite, SIMPLE recipes below! My husband can make beautifully complex dinners that would win over any belly, but he’s at work 8 hours a day, so feeding the kids is up to me! With that, these are your run-of-the-mill, simple recipes for busy moms and even newbie dads.

They are easy, affordable, and healthy (well, mostly healthy)— always kid-friendly and always tasty! Enjoy!
