5 Easy Recipes for When You Don't Feel Like Cooking

by - Saturday, February 24, 2018

My husband will be the first to tell you that I am not much of a cook. And that is a huge problem here lately, because his schedule has changed and now guess who is stuck holding the cooking bag. That's right... this untalented cook right here.

And lets face it, most days this Momma is super duper wiped after work and handling the kiddos. I'm sure you can relate. But never fear! I have 5 supremely awesome recipes for those days when you just can't. You can't adult. You can't cook. And you just wanna phone it in.

I, of course, found most of these on Pinterest. So just click on the pin to head on over to the recipes!

1. Chicken Alfredo Baked Ziti from Gimme Some Oven
  This one is my all time favorite and does include some prep. But with my trusty George Foreman, it takes no time at all. And it is extremely delicious and gives us plenty of leftovers for the next day. A plus is that the kids actually like it!

2. Hickory Brown Sugar  BBQ Chicken from The Frugal Girls 
  Crockpots. Are. Magic. Unless, of course, you are Jack Pearson. But I digress. This is one of those easy peasy crockpot recipes that really are a hit and is also great for parties. This one also provides for leftovers. I love to serve these up for get togethers and parties. Prep is no time at all!

*Note: Instead of the Hickory Brown Sugar BBQ we usually use just regular BBQ sauce. The hickory brown sugar is just a bit too sweet for us with the added brown sugar.

3. Mini make your own pizzas
   I don't have a link for this one because this is something that Ethan just started doing. (My hubs is the best!) This one is a go-to even when the hubs is home. I absolutely love the taste of these little mini pizzas.

Just grab yourself some flatbreads (we use Naan bread), marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. Preheat the oven to 400. We spread the marinara on one side of each piece of Naan, then cover with mozzarella and top with pepperoni. Cook for 12-15 minutes. Easy as that!

4. Green Bean, Potato, and Chicken Bake
  Another super easy recipe with little prep time, just make sure you give yourself the time it needs to cook. This has to bake for an entire hour. There's never any leftovers of this yumminess in our house!

5. Alice Springs Chicken Quesadillas
  I love how quick this recipe is. And I'm going to be real with ya'll, I don't even cook bacon for this. I use bacon bits! Why do the extra work?? I'm sure you will love this one as well!
Well I hope that I was able to give you some new and easy recipes to try out! Let me know in the comments if you tried any of these recipes and let me know what you think!

Happy Momlife ya'll!!
