You feed baby around 168 times in her first two weeks (that’s every two hours around the clock) and it doesn’t let up much from there. How about us parents? We need to eat, too! Fill up in no time flat with these yummy dinners you can make in 15 minutes or less, leaving you enough time to actually chew your food. Flip through our album for recipes like one-pot farmers market pasta, chicken-veggie orzo and more.

Chinese Stir Fried Noodles

It’s all about flexibility and using what you have on hand in this build-your-own noodle dish. Use noodles you have in your pantry, whatever veggies you like, the meat of your choice or tofu for protein, and enjoy the variety of flavors that come together like quilt on your plate. Tip: Make a big batch of the stir fry sauce to keep in your fridge to cut even more time the next time you make this (and there will be a next time). Make it easily with home cook Chungah's "formula" here.
