No time?  No problem. Here are 15 meals that can be made, mostly from scratch, in just 15 minutes!

life-gets-in-the-way-but-dinner-doesnt-have-to-suffer-make-dinner-nearly-from-scratch-in-15-minutes-or-less-2Can we just talk about how amazing and life saving fast, homemade meals are?  Especially ones that can be made in 15 minutes- fast food, our way.  We’re -hopefully- wrapping up a crazy move with our 5 month old baby because, well, we apparently didn’t get the memo that you’re supposed to buy the house before the baby.  And if you think moving in general is pretty painful, well take that pain and multiply it by a gazillion and that’s what it’s like moving with an infant – especially when you have the genius idea to try to do some minor renovations during the move. Yup. We’re idiots.  >face palm<

Crock Pot Chicken and Broccoli

img_90361. Dear Crock Pot, I love you.  2. Sometimes, I look back on our lives about 5 months ago and think about when I said we were “so busy,” and laugh and say, “Ooh you silly silly kids.”  Needless to say, having a baby drastically alters your concept of the word “busy.” In addition to the adorable little human who eats, poops, and drools all of the time, throw in a couple of Daycare plagues (seriously I had no idea what a little cesspool daycare would be…), buying a house, and packing?  Yup, that’s our lives right now.  Busy for sure so exciting! Our new house is quite literally twice the size of our house now, and AND ohmygodohmygod not just one real adult sized refrigerator, but TWO (an extra storage fridge/freezer in the garage)!  I’m so happy I could cry.  But that could also be because I’m so tired, too 😉

Fresh Pasta

Making your own fresh pasta at home just takes 2 ingredients and the freshness makes it totally worth the extra work!There are some things that just ruin you forever.  Like the first time you have a fresh from the garden heirloom tomato.  Or the first time you have a warm, fresh out of the oven piece of homemade bread.  And definitely the first time you have fresh, homemade pasta.  Grocery store tomatoes, bagged bread, and boxed pasta just never taste the same again.
