Cooking Light recipe (some adaptations in my recipe below.) Creamy spinach-artichoke goodness? Check. Crusty yet tender bread? Check. Hot cheesy, comforting delights? Check. Breakfast for dinner? Check. Sign me up now!
My husband was a little hesitant when I told him I'd be making this for dinner, but he quickly changed his tune after the first forkful. This strata takes everything you love about spinach artichoke dip, but lightens it up and makes it an entire (not so bad for you) entree. Dig in without feeling guilty - and perhaps just get your kids to enjoy a veggie-packed inner, too! My little girl? Totally a fan. But then... she eats everything! (Brag alert) So stop waiting and get cooking. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Best of all, these pancakes came together in just a few minutes, making weeknight prep a cinch. Since they also automatically allow for customization, this meal is also great for picky eaters! So what are you waiting for?!?

This recipe is (unsurprisingly!) adapted from one from Wegman's... you can see the original here.

Luckily, Wegmans has come to the rescue! I modified this recipe to whip up a dish that would be fancy enough to impress a dinner party but fast enough (especially with a little prep the night before) to come together on a weeknight. There’s no excuse not to make this right away. Just beware – a 10-month-old may love cauliflower, but giving her cauliflower rice will lead to quite the decorating of your floor!

I paired this with some caramelized baby carrots, also detailed below, and some Mrs. T's Pierogies. They remain one of my all-time favorites, since childhood. The meal comes together quickly and provided me with something satisfying and healthy yet also a bit different. What more could you want?

I customized a little bit, but this recipe is adapted from a Wegmans recipe. You'll also note that it makes use of their own lemon vinaigrette. While I do love Wegmans and purchased this vinaigrette, you can easily make something similar on your own. Either simply dress with your favorite balsamic vinegar and olive oil or else mix in a little fresh lemon juice. No matter, simply let the pears shine and you will not be sorry.

Here, I pick and choose some of my favorite stir-fry ingredients, such as baby corn and sugar snap peas, but also throw in cauliflower. It's absolutely one of my favorite veggies, though not necessarily one that you often see in a stir-fry... but why not? If you want something more traditional, substitute baby bok choy, yu choy, shiitake mushrooms, or sliced red bell peppers. Or, go crazy and swap out these veggies for any of your other favorites! Just make sure that they're cut to about the similar size so they will cook evenly and adjust as needed so that one type of veggie doesn't get soggy and sad while another doesn't have a chance to cook.
