Happy Reading!


By Guest Blogger Jill Cooper / From easy and quick to desperate and near at hand, these recipes will have you stewing on something!

We’re all busy, right? And we all still need to eat, even those of us that like to snack on Twizzlers while trying to make our daily word count goal. When I’m hitting the word goal hard, I have a few go-to recipes that satisfy the dinner need, and some even get to go in a crockpot!

Hopefully, I won’t have to break from writing this post to make anyone dinner, because just writing about dinner is enough for me.

Dump Thanksgiving Turkey

Turkey breast in a crockpot with cranberry sauce and French onion soup mix dumped on top. In 6 hours you have a yummy warm dinner that will please the most picky family.

Chili Dinner

Into the crockpot mix a chili pack mix, ground beef, and our favorite beans. At dinner time serve with shredded cheese, lettuce, and call it a meal!

Frozen Waffles

Seriously? These people want to eat again? For the love of…! Call it breakfast at dinner and break out the toaster, because we’re having Frozen Section Waffles! For bonus points, give them sprinkles and make bacon.

The Whole Package

Everyone loves bacon. Case in point, make some barbecue beans. Take two cans of Pork and beans, mix in a bottle of BBQ sauce, ¼ cup brown sugar, and throw in a pan.

On top, add slices, of as much bacon as you can stomach.

Read: The Whole Package

Bake and then broil until thick, and bacon is crisp and scrumptious and yummy looking. If your beans make it to the table without you eating half the bacon pieces off, then you are a better person than me.

Coffee Counts

Another dinner. Seriously? What are these people growing, or something? Coffee counts if you add cream to it. That’s a dairy, right?


To get in extra writing time, refuse to open their toys for them and watch them struggle with it while trying not to cackle. You’re welcome.

Carbs, and lots of em!

I’ve lost count and patience to keep feeding these people, who I'm reasonably certain must have a tapeworm. So we’re doing pasta and lots of it. Ground beef, dump sauce. Boil pasta. Everyone gobbles it up, and I only have four million dishes to wash. Score.

Ice Cream

That is all.

Wine! (But just for you, not the little ones.)

There’s no number 10 because I’m shipping everyone to Grandma’s. Break out the wine!
