Who says you need to cook an extravagant meal each and every night? These prosciutto, gorgonzola + arugula crostini are a fast, fresh and delicious weeknight dinner. Bonus? The only 'cooking' required is putting bread under the broiler.
2. Radicchio and Carrot Slaw
This hearty salad celebrates some of our favourite winter ingredients like radicchio, carrots, toasted pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. A breeze to toss together, it is a delicious side for roasted chicken, seared salmon and pork tenderloin.
3. Spicy Tomato, Veggie and Lentil Stew
Stew is one of our favourite winter-weather weeknight dinners because it is super tasty and takes the chill off our bones. But the best part about this spicy tomato and lentil stew is that it can be whipped up the day before and reheated in a flash for a quick and healthy last-minute dinner.
4. Cheesy Chicken and Avocado Quesadillias
What we love most about these cheesy chicken and avocado quesadillas are they are quick and fun dinner for adults and kids alike. But the best part is that they are ultra-versatile so you can use up whatever ingredients you've got on hand.

On the weekend, julienne some carrots, cucumber and red pepper so when you are getting supper ready, all you have to do is lay out all your ingredients and assemble. (even your kids can help!) and loaded with fresh and vibrant ingredients.
6. Penne with Simple Tomato Basil Sauce
Pretty much one of the simplest pasta's you can make, but it scores high on taste. Bonus? With this kid-friendly pasta you won't have to make a second meal for any little-ones or picky eaters.
