Hi! I’m Meaghan, a self-proclaimed, proud pickle snob and cheese lover. You might recognize me from 4 Sons R Us, where I share lots of recipes and family ideas.
Aside from being a pickle snob and a cheese aficionado, I’m also the mom to 4 busy boys, elementary school through college-aged.
My boys keep my husband and me busy, and boy, do they like to eat. A lot.
If I made complicated meals to feed them, I’d never ever leave my kitchen. Ever.
And so welcome to The Quicker Kitchen, where my meal motto is work smarter not harder.
With 4 busy boys, a handful of dogs, and even some chickens, I don’t have tons of time- or patience to be honest- to make fussy meals. There are just so many better things to do.
But just because I’d rather not spend all day sweating in the kitchen over a complicated meal doesn’t mean the boys and I don’t love good food.
Of course, by good food I don’t mean gourmet food. Nope, absolutely not.
Instead of gourmet fare, I am all about hearty dishes you can throw together in a snap that my family will love.
Shortcuts, down and dirty tricks, and cream of anything soup is the name of my game here. And I am not even a little ashamed.
I will use everything and anything to do the heavy lifting in the kitchen. That means you’ll find lots of Instant Pot, slow cooker, and air fryer recipes here.
But, just because I use shortcuts doesn’t mean these recipes are short on flavor.
While they are all low prep, they are all big on family-friendly flavors. You know you can put them on the table and no one will complain because they will be too busy stuffing themselves with deliciousness.
Make one (or more!) of these easy recipes and find out for yourself how good they are!
