Top 5 Recipes in Under 10 Minutes

Let’s be serious, between all the kids’ school schedules, activities, social commitments and our own work, meals, and social commitments, there are some days that we just can’t get it together enough to feed our kids a decent meal. We rarely feed them outside food because some of the kids have food allergies and they all actually prefer home cooked meals when they’re not out and about. On those days that time just gets away from us we have some go-to recipes that we know they love and we can whip up in under 10 minutes. Whether it’s a lunch between a million activities or a dinner that is just too late in the evening to make elaborate, these are the meals that are always stored in the back of our minds. Hope your little ones enjoy them as much as ours do!
