10 Go-To Recipes That Make My Life Easy

10 Go-To Recipes That Make My Life Easy at www.hodgepodge.me As a homeschool mama, I have to be on my toes to get my family of seven fed. I like to fill their tummies with good things yet my recipes must be practical and simple. You too??

I contribute recipes monthly to two sites. Recipes for the larger family at $5 Dinners and egg and nut free recipes to Food Allergies on a Budget. I thought I’d round up my latest contributions in an easy to view reference, below:

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.


  1. Yum! Some of our go-to meals are goulash (so simple and yummy), eggs and pancakes for supper, and quesadillas.

  2. The macaroni and cheese sandwich looks absolutely wonderful! But since I’m gluten free, I’ll just drool over it. :) My new favorite go to meal is from Pinterest. Only 4 ingredients. Chicken (I use canned), pasta, mixed frozen veggies, and Italian dressing. http://lynneasrecipes.blogspot.com/2013/05/four-ingredient-dinner.html
