URGENT – Feed Hurricane Ian Victims →

When the family is hungry and we’re all running on a tight schedule, it can be tempting to grab fast food. While this is fine every once in a while, it’s not a sustainable way to feed the masses every night of the week. Enter: the 30-minute meal plan. We’ve collected a few of our favorite recipes that require minimal prep work and still have maximum flavor. See what we cook on those busy nights and get inspired to add a few new meals to the rotation!
