I just love when a friend says, “Can you really call this a recipe? It’s too easy.”
Now honestly, I don’t think it was meant to be a compliment, but I am going to turn that remark around because we all know that this is a place to celebrate quick, easy and delicious meals with 10 minutes of prep.
Better yet, this recipe only takes about five minutes, so even better.
As temperatures drop, my food seems to heat up, in the spice department, that is. We are a family that loves Buffalo Wing Sauce. You’ll find my guys adding it to nearly anything from their eggs to sandwiches to rice. Yep, they love it.
So when I have been blessed to land the mother- load of all chicken deals with 30 pounds in one shot, you knew that my Crock pot Buffalo Chicken would make it on the repertoire more than once. Nearly identical in ease as my Crock Pot BBQ Chicken, we are swapping out the BBQ for some Buffalo Sauce and a dry ranch packet.
Yes, it’s that easy and precisely the reason my friend questioned if it could really be called a recipe.
Those are the best kind, aren’t they?

When a recipe mentions homemade pizza sauce, I typically tune that out and immediately substitute a great store bought variety because why make homemade with a 10 Minute Dinners philosophy?
Ignore that now!
There’s nothing better than whipping up a multipurpose easy homemade pizza (or pasta) sauce, and since we’re doubling and tripling the recipe, there is always some for extra meals.
I’m listing two varying recipes.
The first is over the top easy since there’s no need for any kind of heating. It is a a dump and run kind of recipe.
For both of these, make sure to make lots of extras and separate them into freezer proof containers or freezer bags for future meals.
It’s a wonderful way to save money and cut the high amount of sugar that is added to many store bought brands.
Once you realize just how easy it is to make your own sauce, I know this will become a weekly favorite.
Our family stirs up varying debates. Sometimes topics run deep and introspective, swapping between politics, religion and other politically incorrect table talk discussions, while others, well, they are a debate for debate sake. Tonight’s debate sparked discussion on chili vs. soup. You see this delicious and oh, so easy Tex Mex Chicken Chili, er, Soup [...]
During my first week of beginning my 10 Minute Dinners blog (with all five of you reading), I shared this post. As I began writing up my next C.O.S.T Cooking post for this series, I realized this really gives you a glimpse into simplifying our meal time so that we can enjoy our minutes connecting, [...]
Pizza is a staple in our home. There’s no way around it. It’s served at least once or twice a week, both store bought and home made. I love making my own homemade pizza crust and with my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (I admit, I own two because this one was such a great price), [...]
