Forgot to Thaw {Fix It Fast Friday}

freezer new

A freezer full of meals and meat is wonderful… until you forget to thaw!  This is a kid-friendly, last-minute meal with no thawing required.  It uses pepperonis instead of beef or sausage in a sauce for cheese ravioli.  You could keep the ingredients on hand just in case…

I changed the original recipe slightly to make more sauce and speed up the prep.

 {You can read and print the original recipe at Taste of Home.}

Time Savers:


Use pepperoni minis and skip the chopping!

You can save even more time by leaving out the onion and butter.  Just throw the minis in a pan, add remaining ingredients, and heat.

We know what ravioli looks like, but since most blog recipes include a picture, here it is: 🙂


I don’t know that recipes have much to do with my children walking in the Truth, but I do have to feed those little ones.  🙂

Happy Fast Fixing!


Easy Grocery Day Dinner {Fix It Fast Friday?}

groc new

Yes, that is my car.  🙂

At the beginning of a grocery trip, I am usually excited about my organized list and the ingredients I’m going to get for that new recipe I can’t wait to try.

That excitement doesn’t usually last long.

Here is a good “no recipe” dinner that is quick and easy after a long shopping day.  You can pick up chicken tenders from the grocery deli for

Chicken Parmesan Pizza.

Bake the bread at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Spread on sauce, chopped deli chicken tenders, and shredded cheese.  Sprinkle with basil if you’d like.

Bake another 10 minutes.

Dinner is done! 🙂

I have saved this recipe from old issue of Southern Living, but you can find it (along with a better picture!) here.

In my “it’s just me” post, I said I thought about beginning “Fix it Fast Friday” posts.  Not sure if this will last, but this is at least one…

Happy Fast Fixing!  🙂
