If you’re suffering from lettuce fatigue, it’s time to look further down the produce aisle to sweet Swiss chard. This hearty but tender green is the base of our favorite winter weeknight salad. It’s filled with shaved fennel, cubed sweet potato, and sliced cucumber and tossed with an orange vinaigrette. No need to get too fancy here — we want this to be a side dish that goes with everything from skillet pork chops to a hearty lasagna. It might be a reach, but I wouldn’t be surprised if enjoying this salad once a week helped chase all the winter blues away.

Did you know that saltimbocca literally means “jumps in the mouth”? That description could not be more fitting for this weeknight version of the Italian restaurant favorite. This dish starts off with crisp, tender potato rounds and soft bundles of garlicky spinach, which creates the base for the herbed chicken that’s covered with salty prosciutto and melted cheese. It’s basically the dish chicken breast has been waiting for.

When it comes to comfort food, casseroles are king. I mean, there’s a reason they are the go-to meal people make when bringing food to a new neighbor or a friend in need. They’ve got great make-ahead potential and, once they’re assembled, only require a brief stint in the oven before yielding a warm, satisfying meal. Easy-peasy!

If a Cajun woman makes a pancake, does that mean it’s a Cajun pancake? That’s an ongoing joke in my home. With the commercialization of Cajun, it appears that anything can be Cajun. Truth is, there are so many different versions of Cajun and everyone’s Cajun breakfast table is different. This is mine.
