Sometimes turmoil and trouble of a busy week can truly undermine any attempts I have at cooking or assembling a great dinner at home. Now that my daughter is school aged, between late days at work, her after school activities, or just being plain exhausted, my pre-kids routine of coming up with a few nights’ worth of creative meals has completely gone out the window. I need help (and more time!). Searching for weeknight recipes on Pinterest can be fun (when I have the time) but honestly sometimes I just want to crack open a trustworthy cookbook that features tested recipes that I know are going to be good (and fast).
If you’re like me, you want to add some creativity to your meal routine every now and then, but not at the expense of time during those precious few weeknight hours. So here are some of the best cookbooks for weeknight meals for even the craziest days in your jam-packed life.
