A Collection of 33 Simple One-Pot-Wonder Meals

I love to cook! But I am also a wife, a homeschooling Mom to three young children, a homemaker, and a blogger. Time is not something I have a lot of (who's with me)! So when it comes to meal prep...I am all about meals with simple, healthy, and frugal ingredients!

My solution = One-Pot-Wonder Meals

Meal planning is vital to my success; as is finding ways to use leftovers, buying in bulk, and purchasing fresh local foods. The one-pot-wonder is where it all comes together!

I have prepared a month's long list of seasonal meals I am planning to make and I want to share it with you!

I will be making Spinach Mushroom Feta Crustless Quiche just for me! Hubby doesn't like cooked spinach and I don't really enjoy fresh - but he does.

I tried the lentil gratin tonight and it was great! I should have cooked them a little longer, but I had never cooked lentils. They'll definitely be on the menu again! We also tried the peanut butter popcorn tonight, my kids absolutely loved it! Thanks for this list.
