    Bowtie pasta with alfredo sauce from a jar and cheddar cheese. Too simple to actually be a recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Alyson

    Our last minute meal is bean burritos (refried beans, cheese, tortilla, add salsa for mom & dad). The kids love them.

  3. Jennifer

    This looks like a great one! i have a few go to meals! Breakfast for dinner & Spaghetti are probably the fastest and the ones I always have ingredients for on hand!

  4. Courtney

    Pasta is always my go to meal. We eat lots of chicken and sausage alfredo around here, because it’s fast and easy!

  5. Amie Hernandez

    On those last minute meals, Tacos. They are quick and easy. I always have on hand my spaghetti stuff. I make the sauce myself, and make a huge batch because it freezes well, so I can quickly make spaghetti with left over sauce.
    I also keep frozen cheese pizzas on hand, I can throw it in the oven and ass my own fav toppings.

  6. Heather H

    Tacos or spaghetti are my quick go to dinners when I haven’t planned anything else and we are all starving; because I usually always have the ingredients on hand.

  7. Rebecca

    My go to meal is probably MAcaroni & Cheese with hot dogs. Mostly because when my night is crazy, my husband gets to cook. But, we also do lots of make ahead freezer meals, so we often eat from the freezer when I know its gonna be a crazy night.

  8. Suzanne

    Two of our favorites are grilled cheese sandwiches or quesadillas (served with fruit and a vegetable or salad). Easy and yummy.

  9. Melissa

    My go-to recipe is usually breakfast for dinner – egg burritos or pancakes/waffles. I would love the cookbook – we are a very busy family that needs help! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Judy

    fajitas or spaghetti and meatballs….not fresh or homemade, but I do pick up fresh tortillas from Rosa’s.


    Our usual go to meal is chicken soft tacos (grab a rotisserie chicken from the store) and plop some chicken, salsa, and cheese into a flour tortilla.
