Rotisserie Chicken with Yogurt Sauce and Herb Relish

Easy to prepare, this quick weeknight dinner is also rich in flavor. Spend a few minutes making the savory yogurt sauce and herb relish, then let your supermarket take it from there. A store-bought chicken will make this recipe a breeze, but you can also roast your own.

Salmon-and-Corn Chowder

Late-summer corn adds just the right amount of sweetness to this creamy salmon chowder. Serve with oyster crackers, or larger Vermont common crackers.

Grilled-Eggplant Parmesan

Our light, summery take on classic eggplant parmesan skips the breading and relies on the grill to do all the cooking. Flame-kissed tomatoes and shallots are turned into a quick sauce, then spooned over charred eggplant and gooey mozzarella for a memorable dinner.

Classic Meatloaf

Rating: 3.5 stars 705
Good meatloaf is about as comforting as comfort food gets. Thankfully, meatloaf doesn't have to be complex to be good. It just needs to be tender (from breadcrumbs soaked in milk and gentle handling) and flavorful (from onion, garlic, and ketchup).

Speedy Baked Ziti

This quick baked ziti is a weeknight winner dinner. Everything bakes in the same skillet that is used to make the quick sausage ragu, which translates to much less time and effort (and one fewer dish to clean).

Creamy Chicken and Mushrooms with Egg Noodles

All the action for this weeknight dinner happens in one large straight-sided skillet. Sear the chicken breasts, then cook the mushrooms and shallots and stir in mustard, broth, egg noodles, and cream cheese which quickly creates a rich sauce.
