my kid’s favorite weekday dinner and dessert
Wondering what to make the family for dinner and dessert tonight? Look no further, I’ve got you covered. No, I’m not offering to make you dinner tonight, sorry, but I have two great recipes to share with you. These two recipes are kid and grownup approved and not just by my family, but my kid’s friends as well. I wish my blog had some sort of ticker symbol that I could click every time I made a recipe from here. If it did, these two recipes would be in the double digits.
I’ll be honest with you, tonight I’m taking the night off from cooking. It’s my lacrosse carpool night and by the time we get home, its to late to re-heat/make dinner plus I have a starving 7 year old by that point who I need to feed immediately! I have also made dinner the past 6 nights and I think I deserve a break from cooking. Tonight I want to sit down and be served and have myself a nice glass of wine (DJ’s pours the largest glasses of wine, I must say).

This was the first pasta I introduced on my blog. It’s my go-to pasta because it’s super easy to make and it’s a one-bowl meal. It’s also pretty healthy with all that broccoli stuffed into the dish (I do mean I stuff this dish with tons of broccoli, no skimping here).
This pasta is the dinner of choice at all sleepovers at the Grandy house. You have to trust this is good if a bunch of 12 year olds are preferring a bowl of broccoli pasta to pizza!
What’s up with that?
OK, lets move onto dessert! That is everyone’s favorite part of the meal, right (at least in my house)? I make sure to have a little something sweet every night for the family, as it’s nice to have a little treat at the end of the day.
These brownies are finger and plate licking good. Yes, both my kids lick the plate after consuming these fudge-like brownies. The top is crusty and the inside is rich, gooey (in a good way), and oh so chocolaty.
If you like chocolate and dessert, then you will love these brownies.
Do you have a favorite recipe from my blog that you make over and over (or have tried once)?
If so, give me a shout out and let me know!
I would love to hear from you.
