My mom always made us choose dinners for the week- and when we needed ideas she sent us to her Dinner Ideas list. It had all of the approved dinners that she didn’t mind making and that most everyone liked. Anything new we tried was voted on and added to the list if plenty of us liked it- and it wasn’t too hard to cook.
This is going to be my running list of dinner ideas and links to the recipes. Some of the links will take you to my mom’s blog too, because we use a lot of the same recipes. They all are going to be things I have made for my family and get their approval of. I will probably use this dinner ideas list more than anyone else- but it’s public for those who do want to use it as well!
These dinners are a part of our 15 Minute Suppers Group, check the bottom of each post for more unique dinner ideas that can be made in 15 Minutes or Less!

Dinners to Make an Hour Before Dinner
These aren’t 15 Minute Suppers, but they all are still pretty easy!

Breakfast for Dinner Ideas
We hardly cook breakfast at breakfast time, but we do cook it for dinner some times. Check out our list of 4 Make Ahead Breakfast Ideas for Future Busy Days if you want to try to save breakfast leftovers from dinner time to eat during breakfast time.
Slow Cooked Dinners
If you can get up and going early enough these set it and forget it dinner ideas are the way to go- the crockpot does all the work during the day for you so you can come home to a delicious meal.

These meals are ones I have found from all over the web (it was really just pinterest), and cook them occasionally.
