Sunday: One-Dish Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet

I’m still settling into married life and learning how to balance our busy schedules. This quick one-dish ground turkey sweet potato skillet helps keep us on track throughout the week. —Shannon Barden, Alpharetta, Georgia

Souvlaki Pita Pockets Exps Rc20 251248 07 14 E 6b 14

Monday: Chicken Souvlaki Pitas

These chicken souvlaki pitas are a favorite at our house, especially in summer. With just a few ingredients and a grill, we can enjoy a gourmet-style Greek dinner that’s a snap to put together. Of course, a simple Greek salad on the side is a nice addition. — Becky A. Drees, Pittsfield, Massachusetts

Tuesday: One-Pan Sweet Chili Shrimp and Veggies

This one-pan shrimp and veggies recipe has everything I’m looking for in a weeknight family dinner: quick, flavorful, nutritious and all three of my kids will eat it! My oldest son loves shrimp and I thought it would work well as a sheet-pan supper. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

Wednesday: Tex-Mex Grain Bowl

This Tex-Mex grain bowl is special because it is not only healthy but also delicious. Oatmeal is one of those dishes often eaten sweetened. People rarely think about using it in a savory dish—and they really should! —Athena Russell, Greenville, South Carolina

Quick And Easy Chicken Poke Bowl Exps Tohdj21 251550 E08 06 4b 5

Thursday: Quick and Easy Chicken Poke Bowl

This chicken poke bowl is a great alternative when sushi-grade fish isn’t in the budget. I love it because it’s quick, easy and inexpensive. While it’s not a traditional poke recipe, the chicken still rocks in this bowl. —Emily Cresta, Oxford, Ohio
6 / 7
Chunky Potato Leek Soup Exps Ft20 23901 F 0916 1 1

Friday: Chunky Potato Leek Soup

My family and I love a steaming bowl of potato leek soup on a cold winter evening, but we don’t love the butter and fat content of regular soup recipes. So I created this lighter version. I have shared it with many folks, and everyone who has tried it loves it for the robust, satisfying flavor. —Christine Frye, Odessa, Missouri
7 / 7
Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice Exps Tohescodr20 246006 E03 17 2b 14

Saturday: Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice

This healthier take on kimchi fried rice is one of my favorite recipes because it's customizable. If there's a vegetarian in the family, leave out the bacon and add your favorite veggies. —Stefanie Schaldenbrand, Los Angeles, California
