Worry-Free Weeknight Recipes


During the school year, weeknights are always a chaotic blur of homework, extra-curricular activities, and if your lucky, a sit down meal. Though time may be scarce on those nights, there are still plenty of ways to serve up a delicious, kid-friendly dinner when you’re against the clock—these recipes will show you how!


Salmon Cakes with Side Salad
This kid-friendly take on seafood is comparable in texture to crab cakes, but with a completely new flavor from the salmon. You can even prep the individual cakes ahead of time, freeze them, and cook them whenever your family is ready for a quick, healthy meal.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini
Why spend hours on a lasagna or another baked pasta dish when you can effortlessly prepare this go-to tortellini dish in no time at all.

15 Minute Cauliflower Chicken Fried Rice
This gluten-free version of the classic Asian side-dish is packed with healthy veggies like cauliflower, peas, and carrots, and is much lighter on the oil than restaurant style fried rice.
