Just what you need for a comforting meal every night.

It's a hectic time of year, but you still need to eat and to eat well. These easy dinner recipes are just what you need to keep you and your family well fed. Our weeknight meals take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time, many cook much quicker than that but may require constant stirring. On the weekends we like to try something different; recipes that cook long and slow, projects that get us using new ingredients and techniques, and menus to make entertaining a cinch. So join us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

MONDAY: MOSTLY GREENS FRITTATA

Gruyère and greens make this frittata a hearty, healthy, and fast way to start the week. Use spinach or Swiss chard or a combination of the two, and serve with bread, salad, or your favorite steamed vegetable.

WEDNESDAY: ROASTED SALMON, RED CABBAGE, AND POTATOES

We love one-pot dinners, adore salmon, and can't get enough of red cabbage-you too? Even if you're only with us on two out of these three things, you should try this hands-off entree where the oven does the work and you reap the results.

FRIDAY: SAUSAGE-AND-FONTINA PIZZA

A satisfying, veg-topped pizza that's a step up from delivery and from mozzarella and tomatoes, that's what's for dinner tonight. The hardest part of the meal might be remembering to defrost the pizza dough ahead of time?!

SATURDAY: BAKED MAC AND CHEESE WITH BROILED TOMATOES

Better than stovetop! Them's fighting words, but once you taste this baked mac and cheese, you'll agree. It's a crowd-pleasing riff on the beloved tomato soup and grilled cheese combo.

SUNDAY: POT ROAST WITH BACON AND VEGETABLES

More comfort food! Low and slow is the way to go when braising a chuck roast, so while this recipe is easy, it's certainly not quick. It takes time for the fresh herbs, red wine, and bacon to transform this inexpensive cut of beef and the humble vegetables into a rich, filling one-pot dinner.
