15 Minute Meals for Back to School


I love to cook for my family, but on weeknights I’m often in a time crunch.  It’s not uncommon for me to be working away and look up at the clock and realize it’s already 5:30 or after. But I’ve learned that by using a few tricks, it’s possible to get dinner on the table in just 15 minutes.  A few years ago, I wrote an ebook with 15 minute recipes.

Feast in 15 needs to be updated, but that doesn’t keep me from pulling it out and cooking those recipes.  They work and they’re fast.

Now I want to share some more quick recipes and tips with you.  You can get dinner fixed and ready in just 15 minutes!

Tomorrow I’ve got a brand new 15 minute recipe for you.  Then starting next week and running through September, I’ll be sharing new recipes that I’ve created, as well as highlighting some good ones that have already been published on the blog.

I’ll also be sharing tips for cooking fast.

There are some techniques that help you move through the prep process quickly. You can do anything for 15 minutes, even if you hate cooking.  Or think you don’t have time.  Or your day has left you worn out. In fact, I’m not sure you can even get through the drive-thru in much less time, especially if you factor in your travel time.  Save your money and eat at home!  15 minutes is all you need.

I’ll be gathering the links right here on this post as we move through the series.  So save this page, pin it, share it on Facebook!  You’ll want to come back here for recipes and tips!

Check in for an easy Mexican recipe.   I also have a Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup that’s made from scratch and done in 15 minutes.  And there’s much more  too!

  1. I love your egg timer app. Would you mind telling me what it is called?

  2. The timing couldn’t be better. School starts Monday and work is insane. Meals in 15 minutes are ideal.

  3. I needed one of those tonight. Got home late and didn’t have anything that I could throw together quick enough….

  4. Dinner usually takes 20-30 minutes unless we have a smorgasbord of left overs which makes for a quick night!

  5. i’ve had the “drive.play.feed-sports seasons suppers” page bookmarked “forever” and now that school’s starting, i finally got around to buying the e-book (with the discount code! thanks!!). Can’t wait to read it and put it into play!!

  6. I love you!! 15 minutes is perfect for me for Wednesday nights for me. My husband works late on Wednesdays and it’s busy by the time I pick the kids up.

  7. bookmarked!!, Ilove your blog!
