  10. Pinned! Those enchilada cups look yummy (pretty sure I’ve pinned them before, ha!) and the chicken pot pie – YUM!

  11. Definitely pinning this for later. With our own baby coming AND work starting again, quick meals are going to be a necessity. One of our favorites is teriyaki chicken that I marinate overnight and cook up fast the next day. I also make a big batch of crockpot veggies — carrots, celery, potatoes — to add to any meal throughout the week. Yum!

  12. For some reason I can’t view the recipes at all? Is anyone else having this problem?

    • When you click on the slideshow it should take you to foodie.com, then you can click on the individual recipes and it will show you the ingredients and link you to the original blog post for the full recipe.

  13. I’m always looking for quick meals, that my kids will enjoy! Thanks Linds!! Hope you’re doing well!! Kiss the baby from Auntie RunWiki! 😉 xo
