So it’s Friday and the last thing on my mind and/or the last thing I’m looking forward to tonight is cooking dinner.  I don’t know why but I am almost always stumped on what to make and I’m almost always scrambling to whip something together that is fast and healthy.

Thank goodness I discovered this amazing website several months ago and I’m hooked!  A former midwesterner turned family friendly cook in L.A., Catherine McCord, has been my saving grace for family recipes.  I love her take on cooking and healthy meals that include a lot of flavor the entire family can enjoy.  I only have time to make one meal and I want my son to eat what we eat…the only downside is that since I’ve been using her recipes he will only eat things that have FLAVOR – ha!  

I’ve made the following successful recipes for my family and they have been Yeager approved!

Middle Eastern Chicken Burgers – Easy and YUMMY!

Breakfast Quesadilla – I use spinach tortilla’s to add a little more flavor and color.  I even add thawed frozen spinach sometimes as well!

Turkey Pesto Meatballs – Simple and I served them with my favorite Organic Tomato Vodka Sauce from Trader Joes.

You can save your favorite recipes to your ‘Recipe Box’ for easy access anytime.  Also, for new moms she has really great puree recipes for babies (I wish I found this site when Holden was starting solids!).

Check it out and let me know what recipes you try and your family approves of!  She also has a cookbook coming out in a few days that you can pick up on

Have a great weekend!
