Tips for making these easy meals go further

Don’t these sound so delicious? These 20 easy recipes for moms (and dads and grandmas and aunts…) are all great for lunch and dinner! Double the recipe so you’re making a double batch and it’ll go further without any extra work. I consider that a mom win for sure!

Another easy way to make these meals more worth your time is to have a prep party! Get together with your best friends and have everyone prep 5-10 of meals. Each person preps 1 meal and packages it so it’s ready to be baked or dumped in the instant pot or crockpot. When everyone’s done, you’ll not only have had a fun time meal prepping but you’ll each have multiple meals for lunches & dinners! Do this once a month when the kids are at school or playing with the dad’s, have some fun snacks, and it’s not only a productive time but delicious too!

These easy recipes for moms are also great to drop off to friends and family after a big life change, be it a new baby or job change, loss in the family or move.
