Five Quick & Easy Dinners

Hello There!

When in comes to weeknight dinners my motto is quick & easy.

The less fuss in the kitchen, the better 🙂

I often get asked what recipes I cook most from my blog. Here are my top five go to recipes. Both Mr. Weekly Bite & M loves these!

1) Easy Red Beans & Rice

Love love love this! Probably one of the easiest recipes out there!

2) Mediterranean Salmon Salad

The flavors in this dish are amazing! So light and refreshing.

3) Turkey & Brown Rice Stuffed Peppers


I love stuffed peppers! M thinks it’s so much fun to eat 🙂

4) Spaghetti Pie

This is the rockstar of all dinner’s in our house! Everyone loves it… especially M!

5) Crispy Fish w/Lemon & Dill Sauce

I like making these in fish stick form. Its M’s favorite way to eat fish 🙂

I have many more recipes I love! These are just the ones I cook the most. I hope I gave you some meal inspiration for next week! Or even this weekend 🙂

    Perfect easy dinners! I’m loving that the majority are meat-free, too. Great for meat-free Fridays during Lent!
