With a couple of cooler months still ahead, my family always enjoys warm, delicious comfort foods. We love having our favorites at dinner and then bringing them as leftovers for lunch.
It’s important to find practical, healthy meal options that are also easy and quick given our busy schedules. As we eagerly wait for spring, here are some of the most popular comfort meals I make in my home!
These three crockpot recipes are sure to satisfy the whole family and give you more time to spend with them. Who’s hungry?
Honey Chicken – This delightful recipe is such a refreshing dinner choice. This meal is an easy way to encourage the kids to eat their vegetables! Another thing we do at my house is have the kids make the sauce with me the night before. It’s bonding time for us and makes the prep time the next morning even easier! Get the recipe here.
Tacos – Who doesn’t love Taco Tuesday? At my house, we often substitute the beef with chicken or ground turkey. You could even tackle fish in this versatile recipe! Get creative with the toppings. Put some shredded carrots in the lettuce for extra Vitamin A! Get the recipe here.
Balsamic Dijon Pot Roast – This is my absolute go-to-recipe for any more special occasions that fall during the week. You can prepare or even freeze this impressive meal in advance. Surprise guest coming over for dinner? No problem here! They’ll wonder where you went to culinary school. The aroma alone will create the ambiance of a 5-star restaurant and make quite the impression on your dinner guest. Get the recipe here.
