Answer@2x Hi Mom's the Word,

Don't worry, I’m here for you! Here are a few of my go-to recipes that serve four or more. They're super easy and delicious! P.S. Even singles and smaller families will love these recipes... Leftovers make life easier too!


Eggs and oatmeal are both morning staples, but who has time to whip up multiple omelettes and oat bowls each morning? These make-ahead meals are the ultimate problem solvers...


Make these recipes on a weekend, and pre-pack servings for weekday lunches. No reheating necessary!


Low prep times + short ingredient lists = weeknight dinner wins!
