Welcome to a collection of some of my favorite dinner recipes that I’ve found on Pinterest! These are dinner recipes that our family loves and that I actually cook on a regular basis.

For a long time, my favorite type of meal was one I didn’t have to cook. This meant a lot of going out to eat and spending more money than I should’ve on food. However, everything changed when my first daughter was born.

It became much more important to me to get healthy and make a change in my lifestyle. Obesity and diabetes both run in my family and I was determined to give my girls a healthy start from the beginning, to reduce any chances of them having these problems.

When I first started cooking, I had to use a recipe 100% of the time. I wasn’t comfortable throwing something together without step-by-step instructions in front of me. My confidence in the kitchen was almost non-existent.

However, after almost ten years of teaching myself about nutrition, educating myself on what’s in our food and cooking endless recipes, I’ve now become a self-proclaimed pro and love experimenting with making new dishes.

Even though I develop most of my own recipes now, there’s still a handful of them I originally found on Pinterest that I still use on a regular basis. Here, I share with you my top ten favorites!

1.) 20 Minute Lemon Broccoli Pasta Skillet from The Food Charlatan

This super easy and healthy dish is packed with flavor! I also love her method of adding the broccoli to the boiling water at the end of cooking your pasta. Saves time and dishes. This recipe is definitely one of my family’s favorites. Find the recipe here.

2.) 3-Ingredient Crockpot Chicken Tacos from My Chocolate Therapy

3.) One Pan Healthy Italian Sausage & Veggies from Chelsea’s Messy Apron

I had a hard time when I first started cooking salmon. Most of the time, it would come out dry and dull. This is one of the first recipes that I had success with. I use this recipe regularly now when cooking salmon and it comes out perfect every time. Find the recipe here.

6.) One Pot Stove Top Enchiladas by She Likes Food

8.) Cauliflower Fried Rice by Living Sweet Moments

I have to admit, I was very skeptical of this cauliflower trend. I really didn’t think it could replace things like rice or potatoes. Well, I’m glad I was wrong! This dish tastes just like traditional fried rice with way less carbs. Find the recipe here.

9.) Chicken & Summer Vegetable Rice Casserole by Pink Parsley

This is another dish that uses lots of veggies! I have a hard time getting anyone in my family to eat vegetables unless they are hidden well into a meal and this one does the trick. Find the recipe here.

10.) One Pot Cheeseburger Orzo Skillet by Electric Mommy

Another orzo dish! Like I said, I LOVE orzo and I also love one pot recipes. This one combines both and it’s also really easy. Find the recipe here.

That completes the list! I hope you enjoy these dishes as much as our family does.
