We’re back with Dinner Recipes Part 3! Starting off with comfort food for our snowy weekend, but then hitting some lighter foods too!
Dinner time can be tough, especially with little guys around. We get it, we know it. We feel you.
Our goal here with this dinner recipe series is to give you some ideas that you and your family will like, because we make these recipes for our own kids. Even if you’re on your own or don’t have kids at all, these dinner recipes can easily be made and had as leftovers during the week.
Because who needs to cook every single night? Making recipes that make enough for another dinner (or two) is a huge bonus in my opinion!
Pasta in the slow cooker? Yep, it’s a beautiful thing.
This crock pot beef stroganoff is one of our favorite comfort food dinners. It’s cheesy, beefy and makes your house smell so delicious while it’s cooking away!
Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken Legs
Sometimes we have two crock pot dinners going on at the same time, we do actually have about 4 different slow cooker in all different sizes.
Large ones for large roasts, some for small recipes like queso and this rectangular slow cooker that’s pretty shallow for cooking things in single layers.
You can cook this chicken recipe in a regular slow cooker too, just make sure all the sauce is coated on the chicken legs. Another bonus about this recipe is that it’s literally so way your kids can make it by themselves.
Dinner is done, you do you.
Fried rice is always a big hit at our house. We try and make a low carb dinner sometimes by sneaking in our favorite Cauliflower Rice too. Our boys don’t seem to notice all that much.
You can even do half regular rice and half cauliflower rice!
This fried rice recipe can be easily adjusted to what you have in your refrigerator. Ground beef or pork or shredded chicken would all be delicious!
Fried rice is such a big deal at out house we have lots of different recipes for it! Try our Italian Fried Rice or another favorite this Hibachi Fried Rice!
Philly Cheesesteak Spaghetti Squash Casserole
If you’re looking for low carb recipes that still give you that comfort food feeling, this is it.
This spaghetti squash casserole is so ridiculously delicious, low carb or not, everyone is going to love it! You can even swap out the spaghetti squash for cooked regular spaghetti if spaghetti squash isn’t your thing, but if you haven’t ever tried it you should!
Here’s an easy method for how to cook spaghetti squash if you haven’t ever done it before!
Chicken Parmesan Chicken Wings
Ending the week with some fun food like these baked chicken wings is always a hit!
These chicken wings are baked, but you could also make them in your air fryer too. Serve these chicken wings with marinara sauce for dipping and they’ll taste just like your favorite chicken parmesan recipe in bite size form!
