  • I definitely pinned this for later! I’m always in need of new, easy dinner ideas that the whole family will love!

  • These all look delicious! I especially like the chicken tenders in the air fryer and all of the hearty soups for the fall!

  • I always love a easy meal idea. Definitely, trying out these recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  • Forget my toddler I am making all these delicious recipes and eating them myself! LOL. I love doing “fancy” mac and cheese because they are easy and I can just throw them in the instant pot and forget about it until dinner time!

    • Me too! It’s one of the easiest things to make and these recipes look good 😋 Looking forward to trying them myself.
      Thanks for stopping by, Betty
