Family favorite Go To Dinner Recipes

Family Favorite GO TO dinner recipes

These are my favorite recipes when it’s getting close to dinner time and I have no idea what I’m going to make. These are all recipes that my family loves and I usually have the ingredients on hand. They are also all quick and easy which is always a great bonus!

Tacos with homemade taco seasoning. I like tacos because you can mix it up a little bit every time you make it. We like making them into regular crunchy tacos, burritos, nachos, casserole or (my favorite) taco salad.

My whole family loves Hawaiian Haystacks. Serve with brown rice and toppings of your choice.

I make this Veggie loaded Spaghetti Sauce probably more than anything else on this list. My kids love spaghetti and by throwing some peppers, onion, and squash in the sauce I’m able to boost their vegetable and fiber intake for the day. This is a great meatless Monday recipe!

Herb marinated chicken is perfect for the outside grill or even your George Forman grill inside when it’s cold.

I like to buy the thin cut pork chops and keep them in my freezer for these quick Herb Crusted Pork chops.


When I can’t think of anything to make for dinner grilled chicken salad is the best. Quickly grill up some chicken (or use leftovers!) and add it to lettuce and any veggies you have in your house. Top with this simple vinaigrette dressing.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup is the perfect comfort food when it’s cold outside…or really anytime of year.


5 ingredient Salsa Chicken is fast and I always have the ingredients on hand.

This Cheesy Lasagna is the most time consuming recipe on this list, but if I’m having company and can’t think of what to make this is one is a winner.
