Family Favorite Easy Recipes

I never, ever post recipes that I don’t love and recommend, so every single recipe you’ll find on Our Family Eats has been enjoyed by our family.  But there are some easy recipes that have stood out from the rest and become standard meals in our house, either because they’re so simple, so tasty, or just plain old family friendly.  These are our Family Favorites:


Breakfast and Snacks

Harvest Spice Breakfast Cookies – a treat for breakfast or a snack
Homemade Granola – I can’t live without this on my yogurt, or an on-the-go snack
Easy Granola Bars – I always have these around.  They freeze well too.
Cinnamon Raisin Muffins – the smell alone is worth the effort of making these.

Main Dishes

Homemade Pizza Crust – our favorite way to spend a Friday night
Homemade Chicken Fingers – a childhood staple, but even the adults will love this version.
Cheesy Hamburger Skillet – just like that stuff from the box, but way better.
Chicken Enchiladas – who doesn’t love enchiladas?
Chicken with Creamy Mustard Sauce – so quick and so good.
Coffee Rubbed Cheeseburgers with Texas Barbeque Sauce – divine.
Shrimp fra Diavolo – a family favorite for years, and my most requested meal by guests.


Chocolate Swirled Pumpkin Bread – it’s chocolate and pumpkin!
S’mores Bars – these are everyone’s favorite
Flourless Brownies – when you find out what these are made of you won’t believe my kids love them.
