Get out of the kitchen...…and get on with life. Let’s just say what it is – we’re busy gals! I personally don’t have time, or the desire, to slave over a hot stove all day trying to create the latest gourmet recipes posted on Pinterest! Don’t get me wrong, I love me my “pinning” but most sessions end in an I’m-not-a-good-mom-unless-I-bake-that kinda’ mood…ugh!
Here are some quick and easy ways I make sure my family is fed, while minimizing my time in the kitchen:
1. Plan ahead. It can be easier than it sounds. List your family’s favorite dishes and rotate them regularly – use a calendar, if it’s easier. When you plan your meals in advance, you can schedule easy dishes for busy nights.
2. Keep your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer organized and well stocked with a variety of healthy “convenience” foods, such as canned beans, quick cooking grains, pasta, frozen veggies, chicken breast, ground turkey, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, etc.
3. Give leftovers a makeover. Make a double recipe, serving it one way the first time, then transforming it into something else for a future meal. For instance, you can turn leftover roasted vegetables into a soup, stew, or potpie or combine them with beans and pasta or rice.
4. Once a week, have a cooking marathon, where you prepare several dishes for the week. Once you put on a pot of chili and a hearty soup, they cook themselves. While they simmer, put together a casserole, stuffed peppers, or maybe a chicken and rice dish.
5. Cook double recipes of beans, grains, and other dishes and freeze half for later use.
6. Double up your oven time. If you’re baking a casserole, also bake a few potatoes or long-cooking vegetables such as winter squash, carrots, and onions to use the next day.

ABSOLUTELY THE WORST PLACE EVER!! Customer service SUCKS, prices SUCKS. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PLACE SUCKS. If your looking for a good night out with friends or family, this is definitely not the place. And certainly not the place to hold any kind of birthday or other kind of party. It is not very well managed at all. Supervisors aren't available when needed and half the machines don't work. Had a very awful experience with Ann Marie who double booked a very expensive VIP party and then had to deal with some guy named Wayne (the so call) Director of marketing who wanted to completely overlook the fact that Colonial was wrong and pretty much wanted to ignore all the wrong doing and didn't help in any kind of way. In fact they are this very moment trying to charge me $400 over my original amount AND I HAVEN'T EVEN HAD MY PARTY YET. HOW DO YOU UP THE PRICE ON SOMETHING THAT'S WASN'T EVEN AT FAULT OF MY OWN BEFORE THE ACTUAL EVENT. I am completely speechless at the whole matter.

The amenities are great and is renovated very nicely with large screens, upbeat music, etc. The 3-star rating is based on a poor experience planning my son's 3rd birthday party. Aside from not being advised of any requirement to book private parties with a week advance we were charged a "late fee". However the most disappointing was the poor service of our "designated" party host Tatiana. She had zero energy or initiative, had to run my guests' shoes to the counter for size changes myself, had to ask for the restrooms in our private room to be unlocked, guests were arriving without being directing to the appropriate area, had to run to the counter to request retrieval of stray balls (only one was retrieved of the 3), no announcement or verbal instructions were given to the party that we'll be transitioning from bowling to the party room for food and cake leaving the instructing to me,...the list truly goes on, finishing by distributing arcade cards which were not activated and guests approaching me to ask whether the cards should have credits as they were not working. I spent the party running around troubleshooting instead of enjoying my son's day. Very disappointed in the service for my son's birthday party and would not recommend hosting a party here.

We had my son's birthday party at Colonial Bowling. Our host Alex was really good. He took care of the whole thing and remained with us for the entire event. All the kids had lots of fun.

I live in town and tried to take my wife and sister-in-law out for a nice night of food and fun. We started out walking to Limoncello's across route 1 and had a nice meal. We took our leftovers and walked to colonial lanes. The security guards at the front door (kind of scary that security guards are necessary, no?) refused to let us in with food. We explained that we already ate, and would be happy to leave our leftovers at the front desk. They kept just repeating, "no food". One suggested we leave it in our car, which we couldn't because we walked. I asked to see a manager and again heard from them, "no food". I told them well done on losing business, and while the 3 of us walked back I called the manager directly. He took my call like a joke at first, could barely hear me, before moving into his quieter office. He took down my name, number, and story, and promised to make this right and get back to me. He never did. So why on earth would I ever want to come here again? I was on Princeton and IAS bowling leagues with my friends and co-workers, I will be telling them all how awful colonial lanes has become. There is another bowling alley in Hamilton near estates boulevard and Kuser road that won't put you through this kind of experience.

Over all the establishment it's self is very nice. I only have a problem with the manager of this establishment Ann Marie. She is always on edge and always has a sarcastic attitude toward her workers. I have seen the way she treats employees and I feel sorry for them I mean every time I come and I come fairley often she is bossy to the staff and has a nasty tone. I do not think this is good for business and one thing I do not like to see are individuals that are trying and willing to work being picked on. Anne Marie needs to be brought down a peg or to and have several seats she is far from perfect. Again over all the establishment it's self is very nice. Best Regards, Evaughn

Hi Evaughn, We have read your review and if you would like to talk about your concern, please contact me at 609-882-7700 or info@colonialbowlingnj.com. Very strange to receive a review like this: pointing out a person by name surely could have been handled better by asking to speak with a manager at the time of the incident, calling us at 609-882-7700 or emailing us directly at info@colonialbowlingnj.com. In addition, you have no other business reviews on this platform which is also very odd. Thx WayneT

Does this bowling alley always have the best music? Yes! And is the staff friendly and helpful? Of Course! No bowling alley I have ever been to compares. They Know their customers and strive to accommodate them at all times. My personal opinion is that the bowling alley has all of the best activities. Even if there was only bowling, it would still be a great place to spend your time. Most surprising was how delicious the food was Even the drinks were fantastically made! So, in conclusion just check it out the place is great!

Good for parties or to go out with a group of friends, but the food may take a while to come out when you order something quick.
