From comforting pastas, to fast and fancy fish dinners, to pizza, there are so many possibilities. Here are 17 recipes to prove it.

I Didn’t Register for Formal Dinnerware and I Actually Regret It — The Happy Ever After Wedding Registry

By Lisa Freedman

When my husband and I got married almost four years ago, we didn’t register for much. We had already lived together for a few years and we were in our 30s, so we had a pretty decent stock of essentials. It wasn’t like we were fresh out of college and looking to replace hand-me-down pots and pans. We also lived in a small New York City apartment and I couldn’t imagine ever needing any more stuff.

Together, we made the executive decision to skip the formal dinnerware and instead asked our families for a set of everyday whites from Crate & Barrel. (Just registering for the plates, bowls, and serving platter. I felt very strongly about keeping the mismatched mugs we already had!)

Southern cooks know this magic well. Here’s how to bring all of that cabbage magic into your own kitchen.

This Week’s Meal Plan: 5 Family Dinners to Make Before Things Get a Little Crazy — This Week’s Meal Plan

By Meghan Splawn

This week kicks off what always proves to be a busy month for our family. Between Teacher Appreciation Week and Mother’s Day, and hosting out-of-town guests and finalizing summer camps, we have lots of potluck parties, end-of-the-school-year celebrations, book club meetings, and even a weekend away planned in May.

I’m relishing this week when we only have two things on the calendar as an opportunity to take it easy and stick with some of our family favorites and use up some ingredients languishing in the fridge and freezer.
