Weeknight Dinner & Dessert Recipes as seen on Rogers Daytime York Region

Weeknight suppers should be as stress free as possible – especially on those super busy nights!  You Moms and Dads know what ‘nights’ I’m referring to: when you’ve got less than 30 min to have dinner on the table, homework to look over, laundrdy to fold, garbage to put out, and then off to basketball practice (in my case) 4 x’s a week.

As the Mom of two active and hungry teenage boys, I’ve concluded that simple & delicious is the way to go!

Peanut Bureau of Canada has some delicious and nutritious recipes that will feed and fuel your whole gang.
