I love to cook good food for my family! But on weeknights, I’m often in a time crunch because of all the other commitments we have going on. 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.
Now I want to share some more quick recipes and tips with you. You can get dinner fixed and ready in just 15 minutes!
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 to get a great meal on the table for your family.
Eat at Home Weekly Meal Plans often have 15-minute meal recipes included. If you’d like to save time on your planning and get organized, give the plans a try! If you are ready to try some 15-minute meals out on your family, check out the list below. These are all simple and so tasty!

I love your egg timer app. Would you mind telling me what it is called?
Deb, it’s just called Timer. I only downloaded it so I had something for the photo 😉 But I thought it looked fun too!
Thank you, it is pretty cute!
It’s actually called Filibaba Egg Timer.
The timing couldn’t be better. School starts Monday and work is insane. Meals in 15 minutes are ideal.
I needed one of those tonight. Got home late and didn’t have anything that I could throw together quick enough….
Dinner usually takes 20-30 minutes unless we have a smorgasbord of left overs which makes for a quick night!
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!!
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.
bookmarked!!, Ilove your blog!
