Welcome to 365 Days of Easy Recipes. I started this blog as a way to share my family’s favorite recipes and my meal planning tips and strategies. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to cook and bake but there are some days I just don’t have it in me. Feeding a family can be stressful, especially if you work full time and have a bazillion other things on your plate to worry about. It could be a busy day (or week) at work, activities for the kids, muay thai at the gym… all good reasons for me to go to my freezer and pull out one of my premade freezer meals. If I have my dinner at home defrosting in the fridge, life seems so much better when I know “what’s for supper”.
I also love to host a good party with tasty party appetizers. I’m a little on the cheap frugal side so I share ways of planning parties on a budget. I’ve also been known to splurge now and then too. One of my all time favorite parties was my Wine Tasting Party. Great food, delicious wine and fabulous friends! If you’ve never attended one before, I highly recommend putting one together with your friends. Don’t worry; I include some frugal tips as well. If wine is not your thing, a beer tasting party is just as fun.
You may notice quite a few easy dessert recipes. I know people don’t live on sweets alone so I’m trying to focus more on sharing my delicious dinner ideas moving forward. Anyone who loves their slow cooker (crock pot) is in for a treat too because I can’t live without mine.
My big focus is pre-made freezer meals, if I’m not cooking wholesome foods from fresh ingredients. During the summer I love to stock my freezer with my hamburger patties and marinated chicken that are perfect for the BBQ. During the winter I make cheese cappelletti, meat pies, lasagnas, Bolognese sauce and shepherd’s pie.

Hi Diana. Came across your blog while searching for a good old fashioned macaroni salad recipe. I relate to the fact you’d rather spend money on feeding friends than restaurant meals. I am also a frugal cook so know we’ll get on well! Look forward to trying many of your recipes. Thanks!
