Speedy Chili Con Carne: This chuck wagon-inspired dish evokes a meal cooked over an open fire, but it's easily whipped up in the kitchen.

Bundled-Up Chicken and Biscuits: We've slimmed down (and streamlined) a Southern favorite by using supermarket rotisserie chicken and adding in some fresh baby spinach. A homemade maple sauce gives the dish a sweet finishing touch.

All-in-One Breakfast Dinner: With sweet potatoes, sausage, and hash browns inside and a fried egg on top, this hearty waffle satisfies as either a morning treat or an evening feast.

Stacked Thai Supper: The waffle base is a blend of rice and veggies. The topping is beef braised in coconut milk and ginger. The result: a square meal loaded with exotic Thai flavors.

Chili Cornbread Squares: With a batter that combines corn, hearty beans, and sweet bell peppers, this comforting waffle tastes like a bowl of homemade chili with a side of buttery cornbread. Top it with a dollop of our avocado cream.

Update your go-to stir fry recipe by adding orange marmalade and pineapple to the mix. Lots of veggies and brown rice makes this a healthy, easy choice. #stirfry #dinner

Fish and Veggie Pouches: Fish en papillote (en papillote being a fancy-sounding but straightforward steaming technique) is the perfect low-effort dish. It's quick and versatile -- and cleanup's a snap.

Veggie-Lentil Burgers: A great way to see savings in your grocery bill is to work in some inexpensive dinners that feature cheaper proteins. By including just one in your weekly rotation -- like these tasty lentil burgers -- you can create a meal that satisfies both your family and your budget.

Gingery Chicken and Broccoli: When time is short, I turn to a simple sautéed chicken dish. The ingredients vary, but the method stays the same: I dredge chicken cutlets in a little flour and brown them, then add aromatics (garlic, onion, or shallots), veggies, a flavorful liquid to make a sauce (broth, juice, or wine), and a finishing touch like a pat of butter, a dollop of creamy mustard, or a sprinkle of fresh herbs or capers. Dinner's always on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Picky Eater Pad Thai: Just because you're feeding kids doesn't mean you can't spice things up. I've found that the secret to introducing new flavors is to do it in small steps, giving my kids a blend of something familiar with a little something surprising. Introducing this pad thai to my pickiest eater, for instance, was a success because she loves all things noodle!

Supper is solved! With only one grocery trip and a bit of prep on Sunday, your weeknights will now go a lot more smoothly. Your menu: #mealplanning

Freezer Meal Idea: This better-for-you #chicken chili makes a perfect dinner to make ahead and freeze for busy nights.
