Meatball Minestrone Soup

When I tell my 9 year-old son that we are having meatball minestrone soup for dinner, I get a fist pump… This soup is packed with Italian spices, veggies, noodles, and of course meatballs! This is a hearty “One Pot” meal for all the various eaters in your family – big and small. I like to serve this with crusty bread. Spread some pesto on the bread for an extra treat!

Chicken Pot Pie

I grew up eating those frozen individual portion chicken pot pies – they were a special treat and I loved them! The crispy dough top crust and the creamy chicken and veggies inside were a great combination. When I make chicken pot pie for my family, I usually make one big pot pie in a 9 by 13 dish, but if you are really motivated, you can make individual pot pies in ramekins. Either way, they will love them!

Veggie Burgers

I have been in search of a really delicious (and easy to make) veggie burger for a long time, and so far, this is the one. It has great smoky flavor, a nice variety of vegetables and best of all, it bakes in the oven or on the stovetop, so there’s no grilling involved. I like to make extra and freeze them on a parchment lined sheet tray. Once frozen, you can put them in a ziplock bag and rewarm for another dinner down the line.
