Family Dinner Recipes and Ideas
Dinner Time! It's the worst! Am I right??
It's hard to know what to make, determining if you have all the ingredients, and if you DO cook, will your family eat it??
I have over 190 recipes that are perfect for every night family dinners. Some are super easy, some are a bit more complex, but the common thread is that they are all full of flavor and totally doable.
These are the recipes I cook for my family day in and day out, and many more people than just me with have made them with excellent results!
The most popular category on Heather Likes Food is probably Chicken Dinner Recipes because everyone loves chicken!
In my Chicken Category, I have one pan meals like this Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada Skillet that makes dinnertime clean up a breeze, and this Oven Baked BBQ Chicken Recipe that is the MOST popular recipe on the site, to date.
If you have beef on hand, head over to the Beef Family Dinner Category for recipes like my Mom's Classic Meatloaf Recipe, a BBQ Beef Brisket Made Quickly in the Instant Pot, or this Beef and Broccoli Stirfry that everyone loves.
For simple sandwich recipes, you can't get much better than a big bun filled with some of the Best Sloppy Joe Sauce you'll ever try, or an Italian Beef Sandwich with tender beef made in the slow cooker until it falls apart and just melts in your mouth.
I also have a good number of Instant Pot Recipes because I love how quickly and easily the pressure cooker allows me to make meals like they've been simmering for hours. It's the ultimate kitchen fake-out, and I love it!
These BBQ Baby Back Ribs are made in the Instant Pot, and they just fall off the bone when done cooking. So tender and perfect after broiling them in the oven to give the sauce a little char.
Whatever you decide to make for dinner, I hope you're able to find a recipe that will bring joy to the table and the faces of your family! Continue scrolling to see all the recipes I have here.
