5 Family Dinners You Can Make in 15 Minutes or Less (PHOTOS)

chicken and broccoli stir-fry
I do this all the time because I don't have much choice: Make dinner in 15 minutes or less. You too? Gone are the days when I used to lovingly labor for 2 hours on a Turkish fish stew with pomegranates. Now I need to get something in front of my son pretty much the moment I walk into the door.

Here are 5 of my favorite go-to dinner recipes, things I can whip up in a jiffy but that are still definitely homemade.

I love to do quesadillas and homemade pizza! :) Not a fan of baked potatoes in the microwave... the texture isn't the same.

I can make tacos in about 15 minutes. I keep taco meat already cooked in the freezer.

I was wondering how they would turn out in the microwave. I like to just toss them in the crock pot.

I'm not a big fan of these. Especially the baked potato. There's no nutrition in that meal

I like to use my crock pot. 2 kids had games tonight so I put a pork roast in the crock pot this morning and when I got home from work I shredded it and added bbq sauce and set it to warm. And left for the games. It wad ready for buns when we got home. Sliced a cucumber ans voila.
